We stayed with this location before and have always had a great stay. This time our family stayed next door and won the Halloween contest. We really enjoyed the weekend! Thank you for the wonderful memories that our family made.

Thank you for sharing your time with us. We did have a terrific turnout for our Halloween weekends. Having fun with families like yours makes our jobs satisfying and enjoyable, indeed! Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

The place was pretty nice, staff was helpful as they could be. If you get a tent site with electrical make sure to bring a long extension cord because our site was over 50 feet away from the electrical outlet...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The electric and water pedestal is located between the tent sites. If you need to have electricity inside the tent and you want to place your tent on the far side of the site away from the electric and water pedestal you will want to bring a long extension cord.

Staff is friendly. Not a big rig friendly camground. Hilly, tight, and not level. Facilities are worn. Grounds are pretty.

good experience overall. John and Tammy were very good; Betsy wasn't on top of her game. Wish I knew you gave a military discount so I could have taken advantage of it.

We spent the weekend tent camping at this KOA. We were really impressed with how clean the facilities were and all of the activities that were planned for the weekend. It also is close to the interstate, which makes it easily accessible. A great campground!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you found us! This is our first year having Halloween activities and we have had a terrific response! I hope you enjoyed everything and the beautiful colors mother nature provides this time of your!

I arrived late to my tent site to find that the RV located adjacent to my site had already set up their satellite antenna right in the middle of my tent site. I had to set up my tent in a less than desirable area. Other than that issue, the campground was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Sadly, you arrived after hours or we would have relocated you to a different site.

Too many dogs running loose....the place must be a MUDHOLE when it rains.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not tolerate dogs off leash. Had you reported any dogs we would have taken care of the situation. And, no, we are not a "mud hole" when it rains.

We had a group of 16 family members.. Some in tents, some in a small cabin, some in the deluxe cabins. We all had a great time! Camp has much to do.. Playground for young kids, trick or treating, 'Hey' ride around the entire campground, face painting, candy scavenger hunt, movie under the stars, panning for gem stones, nice fenced dog playground, fishing pond. Some included some costs extra.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing our campground to make your family memories. We enjoyed your group and were pleased to see everyone taking advantage of the many activities offered with joy and enthusiasm. Thanks again and come back anytime!

We stayed in one of the deluxe cabins for 2 nights in October. There were 16 of my family members that were there that weekend, too. We had a blast! KOA had many fun activities during the weekend. Our deluxe cabin was perfect for the type of camping we like to do. The beds were very comfortable, and the cabin was well stocked and very clean. The hike to the top of the mountain is a must!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad everyone had a good time. We enjoyed your group and hope to see everyone again in the future! Your kind words are much appreciated, thank you.

Fun, clean, very family oriented. Quiet, peaceful and staff very helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to seeing you, again.

The staff was great.Clean, modern bathroom and showers. Site was a great location, although it could have been more level. Roads in campground need some attention (potholes filled in, fresh gravel, etc.). All in all a great stay. We will be back and will recommend to friends. We stayed here in a fifth wheel.

Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to seeing you again.

Way to expensive, $ 51.00 for a weekday even with my discount, to much

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

October in the Shenandoah Valley is peak leaf and festival season. Yes, the price of accommodations does reflect this. At least you were lucky enough to be here during the high colors. I hope you enjoyed it.

We had a great first experience camping here. The campground was clean and quiet, check-in and check-out was smooth even though we arrived late at night, and the woman at the front desk was a joy to talk to!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind comments. I will let her know she made a good impression. Thanks for letting me know!

What a wonderful experience! This KOA stands out above the rest. The staff,the activities,and the location are just a few reasons why you should make your stay here. The sites are very nice and you have plenty of space to have to yourself. One of my favorite things is the very large campfire ring provided at each site. Don't take our word for it though...Try it for yourself. Mike and Patsy

Thank you for the kind words. We are in the process of making it even better! We look forward to seeing you again.

Super friendly... level spots and very clean!

Campground was very clean and sites were nice and roomy. Staff was friendly and obviously enjoyed their work. Suggestions include offering ESPN on the cable line up and installing a changing table in the restroom.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hi, thanks for the suggestions. ESPN costs are prohibitive. After conducting surveys of our customer base we decided to forgo the specialized sports channels. We apologize for the inconvenience. As for a changing table...brilliant idea! Thank you. It is on the to do list!!! Thanks!
Oct 15, 2013
We enjoyed our stay in spite of the rainy weather from tropical storm Karen. Cable TV was good. Wifi was decent.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay despite the circumstances. Thank you for the kind words.

The only downfall of this campground that I found is only having one bath house. When the bath house is closed for cleaning (daily from 12-2) there is no other restroom for use. The staff was nice enough to let me use the restroom during cleaning though... a huge plus when tenting.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are welcome! We try to have the bathhouse fully closed only a very short amount of time each day. We state the cleaning time as 12-2 to give us enough time in case they need extra attention and to give the freshly washed floors time to fully dry before allowing people to walk on them.
Oct 15, 2013
Clean restrooms,(SO very important) helpful, friendly & courteous staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for noticing! We keep our campground and bath house as clean as possible. It does matter! Thank you for the kind words.
Oct 14, 2013
They need to regrade the sites so there isn't a drop off fro your steps. Over all a nice place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I believe you have our sites mixed up with another campground. Site 18, where you stayed, has no drop off.
Oct 14, 2013
Great and helpful staff. Have stayed at this campground before this time and liked it. Only concern is difficulty in dealing with rocks and trees so close to the roads in the campground -- although it was ultimately managed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Welcome back...and thanks for noticing! We have been clearing the trees, stumps and boulders that make the place tight and difficult to maneuver. We look forward to seeing you again.
Oct 14, 2013
Staff was great, very clean...nice site! Now if they could have made the rain go away and the sun shine.........had a great time anyway!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I keep asking the rain to hold off until 11pm and be done by 6...maybe I should put it in writing... :)
Oct 13, 2013
Despite Mother Nature raining the entire stay and the Gov't shutdown closing skyline drive, we had a very relaxing stay. Very friendly staff
Oct 13, 2013
Absolutely wonderful
Oct 12, 2013
Campground was nice, but a little pricey. Staff was great, facility was neat and clean, bathrooms were imaculate. Not crazy about the toilet paper though - way too light and kept ripping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

October is a high season for our area and the weekend of your stay was an event weekend at the local university. The prices do go up a bit during these times. We do apologize for the single ply toilet paper. Our plumbing system does not tolerate double ply so we use the same quality used in the RV's
Oct 11, 2013
The wifi did not work and the cable was placed in such a place that I could not use it. A nice place but not up to the standard that i expect from KOA.
Oct 11, 2013
It was extremely overpriced. never have I paid$51.45 for a koa site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You requested a Full Hook up, Pull-through site with cable TV, during high season. We had sites that were less expensive, without cable or sewer hook ups, which we could have put you on had you asked.

Wonderful experience, a very nice campside on a beautiful location. Sanitary was clean and staff were very helpful and friendly. The only thing we did not expect is that the Shenandoah National Park was actually still a 40-minute drive away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you chose to stay with us. Shenandoah National Park is located about 35 miles from us.

Very nice people and very clean bathrooms. They make the effort to make your stay fun.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the kind words.

Was the most expensive KOA we visited this year with our MH. For this money you would expect the "deluxe lot" to level. Many of the deluxe pull thru had mounds or large slopes making it very difficult to level in both planes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I do not know how you could have had trouble leveling on site 62. The 60's section is new, level and made for the big rigs like what you were driving. As for price, we are in high season and you were here during a University football game which does drive up the prices for the area.
