Campground Reviews

Aug 13, 2013
Nice park, friendly folks, but need additional restrooms, especially in the upper area of the park. Please put USA on cable selections.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our bathhouse is located near the camping cabins, tent sites, pool, pavilion and activity areas. We will consider placing another in the upper area near the full hook-up sites in the future. We hope to see you again!

Had a great time, as usual! Staff are friendly and helpful, lots of things to do. Bathrooms are super clean; one of the reasons we keep coming back.

We have never been to a KOA before and the experience was mostly great. The only issue- we had neighbors move in at 3:30 AM. They apparently did not bring flashlights so they used the high beams to light up our tent and their site, very noisy and late? BUT we did not let the lack of sleep ruin our good time!! Staff was friendly and the KOA was clean as a whistle!! Lots to do!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry about the middle of the night disturbance. We had no idea they would arrive so late. Your group was so nice and in such great spirits. We look forward to seeing you again.

Campground is adequate but far away from a lot of things

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you liked our campground. We are definitely "in the woods". Harrisonburg is 13 miles away, New Market 7, Luray Caverns 12 and Shenandoah National park 15. We have wineries, canoeing, caverns and more all within a 20 mile radius.

We camped here for 2-nights. Our site was very nice - the campground folks were friendly and helpful. The pool was refreshing. Good signage for entering and exiting park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words....We do have lots of signs leading into the park! Glad you saw them all! Often GPS devices will contradict the signs and lead campers on exciting adventures through back roads and down dirt lanes.

We had a great time. This was our first time staying at this Kampground. Everyone were very nice, friendly,and helpful. We really liked our camp site. It was quiet and peaceful. There were many things to do right there on the grounds, and in the area. We are already looking forward to going back next year for another great week of kamping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your time here. Your smiling faces were a joy to see each morning. We look forward to seeing you again. We plan to add even more to do on the property next year.

No explanation of services. Very polite. Camp ground was very dark and should have some yard lights for security.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I do not understand what you mean by "No explanation of services". We spend several minutes with each guest when they check in explaining our campground, services, rules and facilities. As for yard lighting, we do have adequate lighting around the public areas, bath house and main buildings.

Very fun, enjoyable, and peaceful (per our 7 year old daughter). Our 10 year old son also had a great time. As did my husband and myself. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and fun. The camping lodge was wonderful - beyond our expectations. We enjoyed the pool, fishing at the pond, playground, the awesome hiking trail, and the fun weekend activities. We're looking forward to returning.

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.

Wonderful experience! Will return to this campground!

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are so sweet! We enjoyed your family and are so happy to know you had a good time here. We look forward to seeing you again!

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.

Perfect. Young lady that checked us in was knowledgable, courteous, and efficient. God bless. Dave Jaquess

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!
Aug 04, 2013
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 )
Jul 31, 2013
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.
