Campground Reviews

Jul 23, 2013
Our stay started out great, but I feel when the safety of campers, especially children are put below that of a poisonous snake, there is something wrong. I don't think it was necessary to chase my child around the campsite with a dead snake. The whole situation could have been handled differently.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Situation could have been avoided had the child been supervised by a responsible adult. It is our policy that all children under the age of 12 be directly supervised by an adult at all times. This is especially important near the pond.

The accommodations were great and really enjoyed the stay EXCEPT that being woken up by barking dogs was not good. Different people should not be allowed to ALL take their dogs into the dog area at the same time. We have a dog and know that dogs bark but owners should also know their dogs to ensure they respect others QUIET time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry the dogs in the dog playground woke you. In the future, please alert a staff member when anything like this happens. We do our best to keep on top of things and put a quick end to any disruptive behavior.

I enjoyed the stay, fishing was a great bonus. The pool area needs powerwashed that was the only thing I would recommend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the trees at the South end of the pool deck do cause a staining problem. We have been trying to get to the power washing when the pool is not being used. Sadly, with the temps hovering at 90 that pool is used all day. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, otherwise. We hope to see you again, soon.

It was very relaxing. People were very nice, could have been a little cleaner especially around the pavilions, wish the pool was bigger for all the people that were camping and monitored a bit closer. People were smoking, kids were taking over pool and squirting people with water guns to the point where they got out of the water. Everyone should be able to have a good time. Events were great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for the over-crowded pool. We did have a church youth group here for one night and the kids did get quite rambunctious. My staff member did put an end to their shenanigans when it was brought to our attention.

We had a great time! The place was clean! The staff was friendly! And helpful! The only complant would be that the cabins did not have water at the site! Had to keep going to the bathhouse to get!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the rustic cabins have no water in them. There is a water hydrant conveniently located alongside the walkway you took to get to the bath house. I will train my staff to point out the "water here icon" on the campground map we give out at registration.

narrow road going in,each member very helpful.I stayed in our 43 ft motorhome,hard to get level. Great cable tv & power.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Route 608 is a standard width secondary road with enough room for two semi tractor trailers to pass comfortably. However, it can feel quite narrow after the wide open feeling of the Interstate.

Wasnt bad for the most part but it did not have a family friendly feel. We were told our son was not to be without us at any time. Also the yelled at a 6year old and were more concerned about a poisonous snake than the safety of the children.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The unsupervised 6 year old child impaled a nonpoisonous water snake at our 17 foot deep pond. We did ask he be with you at all times as this is our policy for all persons under the age of 12. We cannot be responsible for the safety of unsupervised children. We are sorry if this is an inconvenience.

We had a great time....we will be back.

Excellent

The only issue I had was the wifi hot spot would not reach us at our location. I had to walk 3 camper downs to see my e-mail. Little inconvenient.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

After reading this review we checked the reception in the area where you were and have added another repeater. This alleviated the problem. Thanks for the heads up!
Jul 18, 2013
Clean, kids had plenty to do, cabin sites were private. We will definitely be back!

Everything was great except when ordering pizza was told it would take 25 minutes which turned into 1 hour 15 minutes. If we were not starving it would have been fine. Nice place!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do apologize for the delay in delivering your pizza.
Jul 17, 2013

The Grandkids loved being able to fish and enjoy the pool. Everyone was so great to us as always! Met a lot of great people.

Our boyscout troop stayed at the campground. There was lots of things for the boys to do and the adults loved the cleanliness of the bathrooms.
Jul 16, 2013
We have stayed at this campground twice. Everything has been great except when ordering pizza that was suppose to take 25 minutes as per the girl I ordered from it took 1 hour and 15 minutes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do apologize for the delay. The front desk clerk was not aware there were several pizza orders ahead of yours. Our fresh, hot pizza is usually delivered to site in about 30 minutes.

We had a great time even with the rain. My niece and nephew enjoyed the hay ride,crafts,fishing,pool and met some other children who they will keep in contact with. The cabin was very comfortable and clean. The staff was very nice and we would definately recommend and visit this KOA again. Thank you, T. Jones

My son, daughter in law and 3 children (6,4,1) camped with me- staff suggested a wonderful site for my 1 yr old granddaughter who is toddling and it worked perfectly. We love the friendly staff, playground and pool and the activities for the older 2 girls was great. We've been before ad will definitely come back again. Thanks Harrisonburg/Shenandoah KOA for a great weekend. Kathy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ah, yes. Site 32 is a favorite for the kids. See you again, soon.
Jul 15, 2013
cost too much, Stayed at nicer campgrounds at $30.00 per night. Sorry

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had several less expensive sites available for your stay. You were on Site #32 which is a deluxe, big rig, 50 amp, full hook up, pull through, with cable TV and one of our most requested sites. Your camper would have easily fit on a less expensive site.

I only stayed there for one night but I found the place to be very clean. Staff was very friendly. I liked the idea that they take you to your campsite and help you pull it in. If I'm ever in the area I would use them again.
Jul 14, 2013
A very rustic atmosphere. Personnel were polite & helpful. Electric, water, sewer & cable connections worked well. Restrooms were clean & the shower was strong & hot. Our dog liked the small off leash area.

Thank you! We hope to see you again, soon.

Only improvement would be more gravel at sites to decrease mud.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, sadly we have had several severe rainstorms and our roads and sites have taken a beating. We will be ordering several more truckloads soon.
