Cabin Reviews

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

Le seul élément négatif, le wi-fi limité qui m'a empêché de travailler le soir.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Everyone at this KOA is extremely helpful and welcoming. Enjoyd the cabin by the woods, and enjoyed the nightly singing of the "spring peepers" (tree frogs) coming from the woods. Thank you all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Those peepers are amazing! They serenade us each spring. We are glad you enjoy their song.

The only thing I do not like is the fee for dogs. I feel that 25.00 is just to high. I have to very small dogs which I tend to them extremely well while staying at KOA. That cost me 50.00 to bring them with me. That to me is just way to much. I can see maybe with much bigger dogs the price may be higher but shouldn't be that much for small dogs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do charge $25 per dog in the cabins and $35 each in the lodges. We spend extra time and effort deep cleaning the living area and yard after dogs have been in the buildings.I can understand $25 per dog is a lot of money. When we travel and must board our dog it does cost a lot more than $25.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Very friendly staff and just an awesome campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you again.

I understand I checked in there during the winter, but it would be nice to have better heat in the cabins. There is more square footage than the small, plug-in radiator heater can handle. I was charged $25 for a pet fee, and there is a sign in the cabin saying $15. I felt mislead by that. It's a nice place, but I expect to be charged accurately and communicated to clearly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are correct about expecting accurate charges. The pet fee had been increased and the sign in your cabin had not been updated. We certainly apologize for the confusion. Had you mentioned the heater not being good enough during your stay we could have done something about it.

Outstanding campground. Beautiful, clean and extremely well maintained throughout...

We loved it! Very welcoming, easy to go to our cabin when we arrived late at night, lots of fun activities hosted by campground.

Monica and her family (& coworkers) do a phenomenal job at working as a team & keeping the campground meticulous. They are all friendly and helpful. It's a great place to visit!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We always enjoy your smiling faces! Thank you for such kind words.

I wish I had been told which cabin I was assigned BEFORE i got there, since I got there after 8pm and nobody left a map, or letter or something. I asked for sheets and blankets and there was none in my cabin even though I called a few hours before. You should explain in your confirmation email that if u get there after 8pm nobody can help u... and tell u in advance your cabin.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When we spoke in person I apologized to you for the confusion. I did not charge for the sheet service and sent over free firewood. My staff is close to perfect and is not above making the rare mistake.
Oct 27, 2014
Beautiful place and great service. Came for a long weekend get away, and didn't want to return to "reality". Will have to come back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are always glad to see people come to relax and escape the stress of daily living. Come on back anytime your batteries need a "recharge"! We will be here.

Excellent! Only complaint was that wood bought from KOA store would not burn.

Well-kept cabin. Was dissapointed that there was no stove.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you made your online reservation the site description clearly states what is in the kitchen. Your email confirmation has an extensive list of what you will and will not find in the lodge and what you may wish to bring along. I am not sure how we can communicate any more clearly our amenities.

Friendly. Clean bathrooms. Kabin bed mattress firm and comfortable...better than some $200 a night hotels!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wooo Hooo! Those new 7" mattresses were a good investment! Glad you liked them.

This campsite exceeded our expectations! The grounds are very clean and very quiet. Our Cabin was extremely clean and comfortable. The staff is very welcoming and friendly and they had many activities planned throughout Saturday including a lighted hay ride in the evening. We were there for JMUs family weekend so we didn't get to take in the full experience, but can't wait to come back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you, through the next few years, as your student progresses through JMU.

Never Again 1. Politics on the FRONT DOOR is bad business. Liberal extremism stickers are fine on a car bumper, but for goodness sakes this is my vacation! I respect your rights. Respect mine. My $ vote wont come back. 2. They sold green wood to me & the retired cple w/their grndchldrn. After 2 hrs, including kerosene & a torch we gave up. No smores for the kids. I felt bad for the childre

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our campground is a family friendly campground where ALL TYPES of families are welcome. We do not label or discriminate. Being biased or discriminatory is your right...not doing so is my right. I would prefer to fill my campground by welcoming all people with an open heart. We support Human Rights.
Sep 08, 2014
We loved this campground! It was small & quiet. I couldn't ask for a friendlier staff. The cabin was clean & very nice. The best part...our dogs were allowed to go with us. We'd definitely recommend this KOA to anyone & plan on visiting again!
Sep 05, 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 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.

Wonderful cabin and wonderful staff! Only one suggestion: please put another mirror in the deluxe cabin! The bathroom mirror is fine, but with a lot of people sharing the cabin (it sleeps six after all) it'd be nice to be able to use a mirror without occupying precious bathroom space. We have stayed at many KOAs and this one exceeded our expectations!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great suggestion! We will be hanging full length mirrors in the master bedroom asap. Thank you very much for the kind words and excellent observation/suggestion for improvement!
