Although this campground is well-kept, the management and the wi-fi have serious issues. Limited to 2 hours per 24, I tried for 1/2 hr and didn't get anywhere, went to office twice within 2 days and was told owner would get back with me, which never happened. Chose this campground for advertised free wifi, w/ no limitations listed. I missed online meetings; owner was totally unresponsive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We offer free WIFI for email and light web browsing. The amount of broadband we can offer is limited by our internet company (Hughes Net). Our service does not allow streaming or GOTO Office. We suggest carrying your own internet access if you need to do any sort of business during your travels.

We love staying at this KOA. The staff is so friendly and it is very peaceful. Upon checking in a very nice large site came available and we were asked if we would like to have that one instead. It was great and we were very happy that we were asked to take that one. This is one of the reasons we will continue to always stay there. They are just great people.

It was our first time staying at a KOA Campground. We stayed in one of the Deluxe cabins and found it very inviting.We will definately come back and tell all of our friends. We cant wait to try out other KOA Campsites. We enjoyed ourselves emensely and didnt want to leave.

Nice people, polite and appreciative of our overnight stay. Very helpful too! The pizza was good, so was the ice cream social! A bit out of the way. Reminded me of the children's story " The Relatives Are Coming"

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

How sweet! I love that book, it makes me feel at home whenever I read it! Thank you very much! We hope to see you again, soon.

We had a great time at the Harrisonburg/Broadway, VA KOA. It was peaceful and very enjoyable. The ice cream social was very nice. The only complaint we had was the gravel, there wasn't any grass in the area where our site was located, so it was difficult for our 2 year old; walking (he fell several times) and he was unable to ride his tricycle.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the area you were in is all gravel and shale. In the future, call and request a site lower in the campground or site #32. We hope to see you again, soon!

We love all the activities for kids. We tried fishing for the first time -- didn't catch, but still had fun. Only downside was the wood for the fire wasn't well seasoned.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had fun. We look forward to seeing you again.

great staff close national park a must see. great golf course near by.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All true! We have many wonderful things to see in our area.

we love the place but were disappointed with the internet service. i understand there is a 2 hour limit per day but i was unable to even get on 2 of the days.otherwise we had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our internet is supplied by Hughesnet Satellite. We apply 2 hour internet allotments to ensure more people have the opportunity to go online. When the park is near capacity and so many devices are hooked up there is just not enough broadband for everyone. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Positives: fairly level sites, decent spacing, and access roads aplenty (and no one-way!) Attentive, prompt, and courteous staff and nice amenities. Negatives: firewood too pricey, don't get to pick site upon booking, don't like the idea of wearing bracelets to prove I'm staying there. Your security issues are not my problem. I'd come back. We do mostly state parks, though. Better price, sit

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In the future, call our office and our courteous staff will help you choose the perfect site. During very busy weekends we do issue bracelets in order to ensure all persons on the property are registered guests. This is for the comfort and security of our guests and their children.

My 4 yr old granddaughter wanted to go camping again. KOA provided a good choice for her. She liked kamping, she liked getting to caverns 1st time, she liked putt-putt 1st time. She had a good time. (so did we)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad to be a part of many of her "first times"! Here's to many more years of happy camping for your family!

Too far off the interstate on a very twisty road with low overhanging trees. Too much hassle for a one-night stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The 3 1/2 miles from the interstate can feel very long after traveling at high speeds on the wide open highway. The good news is we have no highway noise, no trains and no airport noise.

very rustic washrooms. road past office to campsites very poor ( large potholes )

There wasn't much to do there for us. The staff was kind and helpful to us, but we witnessed some interactions with another group that we felt were not handled appropriately. I understood that they hadn't read the rules & were wrong in what they did, but how the owner spoke to them was unprofessional & some of the things she said were cruel & unacceptable with children around especially.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You witnessed a group of adults get caught stealing private property and doing so in front of their own children. Their children were with them when they got caught with the stolen property which I am sure was very embarrassing. I allowed the group to stay rather than punish the children.

We stayed here 4 nights with intentions to relax and tour Luray Caverns. We were greeted by friendly staff with big smiles. Our site was great, was level where we parked. The camp store was well stocked and met those right now needs. A very well kept clean campground with a family atmosphere...we will be returning.

Should indicate that not all sites have cable TV. Did not affect our stay, but may be an issue for those with a longer stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When making an online reservation you can choose sites with or without TV.

Very beautiful campground with large generous sites and great hookups. Staff is friendly and helpful. Area is terrific with so much within a short distance to see and do. We weren't too thrilled with the cable TV, as although the number of channels don't matter that much, about three of them were rough tough movies with lots of bad words for kids to hear.... But truly wonderful stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. Our TV channels include 3 Showtime brand movie channels, The Cartoon Network, the 4 major networks, 2 news channels, the Weather channel, Nat Geo, Nick at Night, TV land, ABC Family, Discovery, Lifetime Movie, Comedy Central and more.

our stay was too short and next time we will stay longer. everybody was helpful and friendly and nice. my only comment / concern would be the location of the camp site we stayed in (and the one next to it): because of the proximity to the pull through and the cabins and the run off from the rain....i would do away with both of those spots. this is NOT a complaint...just a suggestion! :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I agree, site G8 and G9 were hit pretty hard when we had 6 inches of rain in one day. We have been reworking the runoff patterns. Not an easy task at the base of a mountain! When you return I would suggest you request G3 or G5. They are both tucked in the trees and farther from the roads.
Jul 24, 2013
A bit too woodsy and buggy for my taste. People where very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are located at the base of the Massanutten Mountain under a canopy of Pine and Oak trees. We appreciate you trying our campground! Happy camping!

This was a well maintained and peaceful KOA. The staff was excellent and very helpful. A lot of attractions are within a few miles. Not many organized activities for families and the internet was sketchy but all in all a great experience.
