Campground Reviews

Aug 27, 2014
Love the natural setting of this campground.
Aug 27, 2014
It was a great family place. Busy. They had a playground and pizza delivery, among other things. We prefer a more secluded and private campground to catch up on family time. However the grounds were well kept and bathrooms clean. The other downside is we were charged an extra person, in addition to the site fee, because we had 3 kids, which totaled 5 for our party.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, we do have a base rate for 2 adults 2 children and charge for any extra persons. Isn't it great though that you got a 15% discount for being active military? Perhaps we should have not charged for the extra person and not given the discount instead?

This was a very nice campground. The bathrooms were cleaner than my own! The staff was friendly and we had a great stay. We will certainly stay here again!

A great time was had by all during our week long stay. The staff was very friendly. The sites were oddly shaped, but well kept and the bath rooms were very clean. We really appreciated the peace and quiet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ah, yes. Our tent sites are placed between the trees to ensure privacy and a wooded "camping feeling". We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.

Once again, wanted to stay longer!

The KOA at Harrisonburg/ Shenandoah Valley completely surpassed our expectations! The staff was super friendly, the facilities were sparkling clean, and the location was perfect for our stay in Shenandoah Valley. It was our first time staying here, and definitely won't be our last. Thank you John and Monica!

Friendly staff, well cared for campground.

Had a wonderful stay at Harrisonburg/Shenandoah Valley, VA KOA. Restrooms are very clean and wonderful showers. We had a camper and were able to pitch our tent across the road from our pull through site. People who worked the campground were very nice.

Sites for big rigs were fairly private. The staff was very friendly, our reservation had gotten messed up on line and they found a spot for us with out a fuss

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were happy to accommodate you! Thanks for your patience while we got everything straightened out. We hope to see you again.

What a little gem!! This place was amazing. From the staff to the owners, Monica & John, everyone was very friendly. This campground was super clean & neat. Even the bathrooms had designer counter-tops. The free-range chickens were the hit of the trip. A flock of about 15 or so, would roll through our site everyday & visit on the way to find food. Our three families had a great time here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our free range chickens are great entertainment and bug eaters! Your group was a pleasure to have here. We look forward to seeing you again. Monica

We enjoyed our one evening stay...only recommendation is place could use a little updating...like that it's heavily shaded but could use some lighting at night....it's pitch black out at 4am ..so dark our dog froze when I tried getting him to leave RV for a quick walk because it was so dark outside. To be honest I didn't feel comfortable going out either.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you are camping in the woods, you can expect to find it dark at night. Mawaten New Jersey is most likely not so dark, even at 4am. We suggest bringing a flashlight.

We enjoyed our stay at your KOA campground. We liked the attitude of the owner and staff. They were upbeat and very friendly. The rate was ok, the roads somewhat bad, but overall great time. We played minigolf and went to play real golf nearby. In another campground later in the trip we payed much more per night and every little thing we had to pay extra for. Your park is great,even free coffee !

Outstanding campground! When we arrived I was concerned about being able get around the trees with a 40'5th wheel, but found it to be very easy. They did their homework when laying out the roads and sites to make it an very enjoyable experience.
Aug 19, 2014
Loved the fire pits. And your young staff was great.Liked the fact that all of your sites are shaded.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We like our trees, too. They add a nice calming atmosphere.

Great long weekend. Staff was wonderful. Will stay there again.
Aug 18, 2014
staff very nice, everything clean
Aug 18, 2014

Aug 18, 2014
I really enjoyed my stay was able to take my 2 grandsons camping and they had a great time can't wait to come back

The campground was very nice and the staff friendly. We had a very nice site that was comparable in space to other private parks we have stayed at. The only negative was the advertised WiFi. It either didn't work or barely worked!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our WIFI is satellite dependent. It is good for email and simple web browsing. We try to make that clear on the website and when you check in.
Aug 18, 2014
Our family had a great time! The staff was very respective and accommodating to our needs. The area was nice and they have a great trail to hike on. Can't wait to go back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are always glad to see kids having fun on the campground. We look forward to seeing you again.

I was a late arrival for a camp site. This was my first time to stay here, and only stopped, to get out of driving up I-81 in heavy thunderstorms. Nice wooded camp site, and quite. I will definitely go back and stay longer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad to offer you a nice place to stay to get out of the rain. We look forward to seeing you again.

We enjoyed it.
Aug 17, 2014
It is well worth the rather tortuous drive in from I-81 to this beautiful campground. Great folks to welcome campers and great facilities. Thanks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That drive has a way of reminding us to slow down and enjoy the journey. I know it can be unnerving after the wide open interstate. We appreciate you coming in despite the drive.
Aug 17, 2014
Enjoyed our stay. The pool was too cold to use. Wish it were heated. Also wish the indoor game area was larger. Bathrooms and showers were a pleasant surprise. Cabin mattresses were very comfortable. Cabin was very clean and comfortable. Would stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry the pool was cold. We had an issue with mud in the pool. We had to pump out about 4000 gallons and were in the process of refilling it with spring water during your stay. We did not have much call for the game room when we had one so we did eliminate all but the basics.
Aug 17, 2014
My wife and I have stayed here several times now. The campground is always clean and well taken care of. The staff is very friendly and we enjoy talking with them. We highly recommend this quiet KOA as an overnight or a multi night destination.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to seeing you again and continuing our lovely conversations.

Great batheooms. Great facility.
Aug 16, 2014
I have never had a KOA invoke the early check in fee. EVER! Then to Terry be told we are too early , that'll be $5 extra please, is very off putting. By the time we actually used any campground services, it was after check in time. It cost us $5 extra for nothing. There are other campgrounds nearby. We will stay there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you arrive early and have us drive you around the campground for 25 minutes to inspect each site you have taken a staff member from duties. You also cause us to rush to prepare the site. If you respect our established check in and check out times you will not pay for extra services.
Aug 15, 2014
Stayed here because our truck broke down. Lot of rustic character and very level, shady sites. They were very helpful, letting us renew our stay day by day until our truck was running again. Perfect place to get away from it all but be warned,if you need to stay in touch with the world, wifi is practically nonexistent.
Aug 15, 2014
Very nice stay, thank you!
Aug 14, 2014
We rally enjoyed our stay. Clean and very well laid out campground. Even for a big rig with tight turns, I had no problems. Will stay her again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you felt comfortable driving here in our park. We do have the turns as wide as possible and good drivers, like yourself, usually do not have trouble.
Aug 14, 2014
Nice KOA. Most of the staff was really nice (host family was awesome). Pet friendly, with their own flock of hens roaming! Playground with checkers, tether ball, basketball court. Outdoor spaces nicely manicured with pet walks, swing, pond, trails... Fun pancake breakfast and to-go pizza. Not so in love with pay as-you-go ice cream social since it's free @ other KOAs but small price to pay for fun

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am so sorry you felt paying for ice cream was an issue. We hope you enjoyed the free activities: giant checkers, pool table, air hockey, mini golf, equipment loan, ping pong, movie night, fishing pond. Perhaps, we should charge for all of the other activities and give away ice cream for free.

The only problem we had was the internet service was very poor. All employees were very nice and professional people.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, rural access to internet is satellite dependent. We have no other choices for the service. Now you know why it is free to you. We spend a large amount of money providing what we can. If I was able to buy better internet I would do so and charge for the service to recoup the investment.

LOVE THIS CAMPGROUND AND ITS SURROUNDINGS... BEAUTIFUL!
