We really enjoyed our stay and I think the campground is very nice. An additional bathhouse would be nice, as it was quite a trek from our sites to the bathhouse, and the rocky, uneven ground was difficult for my mother to navigate. I also thought the price was too high.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Memorial Day is a holiday weekend. You can expect the prices everywhere to be higher. You chose site 71 and were warned it is a long walk to the bathhouse. We have water/electric sites closer to the bath house. Perhaps you can choose one of them next time for Mom's sake.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Some sites are very close together. I was concerned about the poison oak that seemed to be everywhere.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Poison Oak? We do have Poison Ivy that we constantly battle. I have not seen Poison Oak. We also have Virginia Creeper, wild grapes, raspberries and black berries that are often mistaken for Poison items. We keep the sites and public access areas cleared but leave the wooded area natural.

Great staff, family friendly, lots to do without ever leaving the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and took advantage to everything we offer included in your stay!! Come back soon!
May 26, 2015
The staff was personable and attentive throughout our stay even offering delivery of firewood! All the sites provided shade, it was quiet and extremely family friendly. The fact you purchase fresh eggs produced by the hens on site was a wicked bonus!! We are already planning our return trip!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We look forward to your return!

Great team managing the camp site. Very involved, resourceful and helpful. The campground itself is good, except some specific tent sites that could be better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are continually improving and hope to see you return to see the changes as we go along!

hard to get big rig in and out of camp site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for that site. Your big rig would have been better off in a different site. We hope you return in the future and we can put you on a big rig site!

We had a great time.The staff were friendly and very welcoming.
May 23, 2015
Excellent separated campsites and NO year-round sites. super! Very helpful staff. One drawback -long narrow winding road to get in but easily manageable even for a big rig.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. That 4 mile road affords us a quiet campground with no highway noise!
May 23, 2015
very nice and quiet everyone was very nice and helpful I enjoyed my vacation your out within short distance to a lot of thing to do and resturants but far enough away to relax and unwind from your days activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed our wonderful area and campground!

Horrible site location, ridiculous price when the things we asked about didn't work. It was not ready for full paying guests.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Horrible site location? Site 20 is one of our most asked for sites. Level, large and convenient. Everything(except our kitchen)was in working order during your stay.Even our pool was open before Memorial Day.
May 22, 2015
Le seul élément négatif, le wi-fi limité qui m'a empêché de travailler le soir.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have limited WIFI. It is satellite dependant. Rural internet access in the USA is still a challenge. Nous ne devons WIFI limitée . Elle dépend satellite . Accès internet rural aux Etats-Unis est toujours un défi .

Loved it. Nice and quite. Long way off the hwy but that was not an issue for us. Thankful to have the pullthru site for a few days.
May 21, 2015
A great campground, very clean and neat. We had a great site. Our grandson loved the chickens wondering around. Pool just opened, nice and clean too. Not far off I-81 in actually miles, but seams like your out in the wilderness which makes it nice and quiet. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
May 20, 2015
not a good campground if you have dogs with you. too many rocks and not enough grass. pet area too far from site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our campground is under a Pine and Oak tree canopy. It is impossible to have these trees and grass. Our fenced in pet playground has grass and is located near the front of the campground. In the future, please request a site near the pet playground.

We've stayed here previously and plan to return when in the area.
May 19, 2015
We rented Lodge #2 which was very nice very clean very comfortable, with a large deck, tables, chairs, 2 grills and a fire pit. The staff was friendly, very accommodating, very visible, and helpful in every way I requested. The campground is attractive and quiet. We would go there again, no question about it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate our efforts.

Cleanliness deserves a "10". Need to incorporate more to do such as bike rentals, fix mini golf, need a game room. Need activities, etc. Store needs more food choices

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you noticed how clean we keep the campground. Come back during season for a full activity schedule. Sadly, the minigolf was damaged by a camper and will be repaired when the insurance company gives clearance.
May 19, 2015
We had a wonderful stay in our little cabin. It was so nice to be able to bring our dog along for the trip and he seemed to love it as much as we did. And the bathrooms were surprisingly very clean for a campground. We will definitely be back again one day soon!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We take clean bathrooms very seriously. Thank you for noticing! We are happy to welcome furbabies to our campground.
May 18, 2015
had a good time the chickens were were very funny especially heniretta jerry also very helpful with our tv setup
May 18, 2015
The only issue I had was that there game room was torn apart I hope they fix it

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been installing a kitchen and dining area. We have found in the past few years the gameroom was not used as much as necessary to justify having it.
May 18, 2015
Very pleasant staff. Owner makes you feel like family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. When you are here, you are family! Come back soon!

Super friendly people at the desk and the drive into the camp from the highway is well worth the trip!
May 14, 2015
Very nice
May 14, 2015
Our stay was wonderful! Our reservation was made directly from the front desk via our cell phone while on the road. She was so pleasant. The grounds were so clean. Even the fire pit was not only clean, but very sturdy. Our camping space was larger than we've had during our trip. We are talking about coming back! Thank you for making our time worth our unfortunate short stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you found us on your journey. We hope you come back to visit when you can stay longer.

This was the 3rd or 4th time that we have stayed at the Shenandoah Valley KOA campground. We camp with an RV except this time we stayed in one of the cabins/lodges. It was great. Obviously we like this campground since we keep returning. (It is conveniently located close to JMU! :-)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are always glad to see you! Camping offers a nice change from the Harrisonburg hustle and bustle during JMU event weekends.

I had a wonderful time and was made very welcome over a month long stay. The amenities and the staff were excellent!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad you found us and we had a place for you. Welcome to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley! We hope you like living here as much as we do.
May 12, 2015
We stayed a week and would love to stay a month! Monica and her staff are top notch and the campground was the best we stayed in 10 years. The surrounding area is perfect for motorcycles and we will be back with ours again! Thank you for the great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you found us. Please do come back. We love seeing bikes and helping you find great rides. There is lots more for you to explore in our beautiful valley....and bring the bear! Everyone got a kick out of seeing him waving from your site.

Check in was quick and easy. Sewer drain area for our campsite was disgustingly dirty. Normally we would have flushed out our tanks, but chose not to at our site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Perhaps you are thinking of another campground. I have checked site 42 myself and found it to be clean and sanitary. Our sewer pipes are covered, clean on the outside and the ground surrounding the drains are kept clean.
May 11, 2015
Nice people very clean
May 11, 2015
Good site for overnight. Friendly staff
May 11, 2015
It was brief, but nice.
May 11, 2015
Very pleasant surroundings. This campground had the most fully stocked store of any campground I've been in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We try to anticipate needs and be on the ready!
May 11, 2015
We have stayed at this campground before. I accidentally selected this campground because of a similarity in names with the koa we wanted. Our problem with this koa is not the facility itself, but the 3.3 mile access road to and from the facility. It is a narrow, winding, cowpath. It may be ok for tag-a-longs and 5th wheels, but it was scary for our 39 foot Class A. I took pictures to documen

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The road leading to our campground is located at the end of a standard DOT double yellow line road. We are not on a "cow path". Tractor trailers and tanker trucks navigate this road with no trouble. We have had 45 foot motor homes pulling 30 foot trailers down here with no issues.
May 11, 2015
We arrived miserable due to rig problems we were having, but quickly decompressed due to the hospitality of Monica and her staff. The next morning she stopped by to make sure our site was suitable, as we did not have the use of our stabilizer jacks. This is a beautiful campground in the hardwood forest with a mountain hiking trail on the property.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you found our campground to be a calming place. It is never easy when things go wrong on a trip. We are here to help smooth the way.
May 11, 2015
This is our favorite getaway campground. My grandmother passed away the weekend before and my husband knew I needed to get away. Monica's staff is so friendly and respectful. They make you feel at home. We will definitely return over and over again. Snow boots mom

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts go to your family. We try to make this a home away from home and are honored to know you came to us to take time to heal. ... say Hi to snow boots for us and.... watch out for site 67...they had water guns!
May 10, 2015
very friendly

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you very much for the kind comment. We wonder why we received such a low rating.
May 09, 2015
Thought it was great but could have used some lighting so you could see where you are walking at night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do suggest a flashlight at night. We are located in the woods at the base of a mountain. We do not have a lot of ambient light from surrounding towns. We do light the building exteriors adequately.

Nice flat campsite but many flying insects. Friendly staff!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

AArgh! The gnats can drive you up a tree when they come out. Luckily , they are sporadic.
May 07, 2015
The wi-fi was practically non existent. I reported it at the office and they said they would reset. But, it was only MARGINALLY good and didn't last long.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, we are very sorry. We do have WIFI that is provided by satellite. We receive a limited amount of broadband per 24 hour period and when someone uses it up...it is gone. There is absolutely nothing we can do about this. If we could purchase a better supplier, we certainly would.

Great place, friendly staff, beautiful grounds, clean restrooms.
