RV Reviews

Jul 27, 2015
Would recommend to a family with kids or pets, we just park and run all day (2 adults only).Selected this park because of closeness to Harrisonburg (30min) and WiFi. Absolutely no WiFi while we were there for 4 nights and I feel RVers pay more for WiFi at these parks; if not available, don't advertise that it is. Need more rocks. It rained/was muddy. one night our Honda center caps were stolen!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No one pays for wifi, we pay a fortune to provide it for free to all of our campers. Rural wifi is a challenge to provide. We are sorry it is not very good. We have not been able to verify your center caps were stolen on our property or perhaps they were stolen elsewhere.

It's a nice quiet campground. You must drive about 3 miles of narrow country road to get to it, but we'd stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We do enjoy not hearing any highway or train noise! We look forward to seeing you again.

The campground was clean, the people were friendly. Location was great!

The site we had had no shade at all. And we were the very last site at the top of the hill. The water pressure was so low we couldn't shower. The cable connection was at the nose of our A class when all A class have there connections in the rear by sewer water and electric. They just wanted to sell you a longer cable. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this Place a 1

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 64 has shade and cable TV. I am really sorry your coax cable did not reach. In the 7 years we have been in business, we have found there is no standard in the RV industry so, we can only do our best when installing utility connections. Our water pressure is between 36-50 psi.

Very nice wooded setting, clean, quiet and relaxing
Jul 20, 2015
We just needed a quiet quick weekend getaway and that was what we got here. Our site was clean, the hookups were convenient for our unit and the size of our site was adequate for a short stay for just the two of us with our 3 dogs. We will certainly choose this KOA again for a getaway. The pool looked clean although we did not choose to use it and the pet areas looked great.

I was disappointed that we could not have a tent on our campsite with our camper. The locked sewer dump area was an unexpected speed bump as well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The policy is one camping unit per site. The map given to you at checkin states the locked station and need to get a key. The dump station is keptlocked as it is near the playground and children have dropped stones down the station and caused severe damage to the grinder and treatment plant.

The campground is nice. Bathrooms are excellent. The staff are super friendly. It's the main reason we stay at KOA's across the East Coast. The food selection at the store was way down from years past. We only had two options for diner. Hot dogs or tuna. There were no other meat options available. Our fault i guess for not shopping before we got to the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We do our best to make every stay a good one. We do offer tuna, hot dogs, bacon, eggs, two kinds of smoked sausage, several types of cured sausage, several types of cheese and beans as protein choices. We also have fresh made pizza delivered to site.

I had an issue with charges I discovered upon returning home, didn't Want to issue credit on my credit card, finally agreed to. Wi-fi didn't work. After checking other KOA websites found many more that allow more than 2 children w/o charging. Pool nice also playground also, clean restrooms

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We did credit your card for the extra child you were charged for. We had no way of knowing you did not bring the extra child since you did not bring this to our attention until after you returned home.At checkin all persons are asked to verify the number of persons on their site.

This was our second visit to this campground. The sites are level and roomy. The bathhouse was clean and there was plenty of room to walk our dog. The internet was really too slow/weak to even check email, but we were only there for one night.
Jul 19, 2015
Très bon séjour. Seul point négatif: Wifi, internet très très lent. Excellent stay. Down side, very very slow internet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry about the internet. Rural America internet access is still below par. We do our best with what we have available. We hope to see you again.
Jul 19, 2015
Nice campground. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was very quiet and peaceful. Our site was roomy and the hookups were very good. The only criticism I have is the extremely poor wifi access. We were only able to connect 10-15 minutes each day. Since this was a working vacation for me, the poor wifi was an issue.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rural wifi is a challenge. One is cautioned to never use public wifi when doing work related tasks. Open wifi is unsecured and can be undependable. We caution people to carry a secure internet connection when travelling and working.

One of my favorite spots to stay in the Shenendoah Valley area. Nice clean campground and friendly atmosphere.
Jul 17, 2015
We always enjoy staying at this KOA. It is clean and the owners are very friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay there fantastic.
Jul 17, 2015
Very hospitable hosts! Lots of activities for the kids.
Jul 17, 2015
4 miles off the highway, but worth the long drive
Jul 16, 2015
This was a great, relaxing trip. Close to several local attractions. Great atmosphere.
Jul 16, 2015
Great staff, even those that weren't family. Bath houses were as clean as expected except frequently muddy due to tent campers in wet conditions. Nice, deeply forested area, shade. Free WIFI never worked for us. It was explained to me why, but this would not be a good location for those who need to do work or send and receive email. The campground is trying to go green. Great effort.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Rural internet is a challenge. We do our best.

Britany in the office made our stay most pleasant. Definitely will stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Britany is amazing! Thank you for the kind words. I will make sure she is aware of them.
Jul 15, 2015
Staff was outstanding. Craig & Jen went above and beyond to accommodate us. Will definitely go back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Craig and Jenn are amazing! They work hard to be sure everyone has a terrific stay. I will be sure to pass on your kind comments!

Only problem - which is endemic in all campgrounds is the WiFi speed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Oh, and here I thought we were the only ones with slow/bad wifi! Kidding. Rural wifi is a challenge.
Jul 14, 2015
nice and friendly staff , sites were littered with large rip rap not easy to park we won't be staying in anymore KOA too expensive not worth the price for travelers 10.00 more we could stay in a motel

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for acknowleding my friendly staff. Despite your attitude towards them at check in they did their best to be courteous, kind and helpful. I am at a loss to what rip rap is and can not find anything on the site where you stayed to give me a clue.
Jul 13, 2015
Very nice campground. Very clean. Loved the chickens! Dog play area very nice. Good size lots and easily accessible. Really like that trash is picked up daily. Very friendly staff.
Jul 13, 2015
Wonderful campground, great location, nice site.
Jul 13, 2015
Staff were friendly and helpful with making suggestions on activities to do. This campground has large lots with a more rustic feel with rocks and shrubs and plenty of trees for shade.

Enjoyable locations, nice sites with lots of room. Very friendly staff, and clean facilities. The ticks within the campground were numerous. Not sure if anything can be done about that.

OK..you tell me, here is how my 70 year old parents and I was greeted at our campsite. "hi my name is Monica, owner of this campground, you can not drive that golf cart, and why don't you have your arm bands on?? Wow, we travel around the wourld to campgrounds, never had these rules. Worst campground ever, arm bands uncomfortable, very unfriendly people. I will tell all my fellow campers NO!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

For the overall safety and comfort of all guest golf carts are only allowed when one has a handicap placard for their auto. Armbands are required for safety and crowd control reasons during holiday weekends. Your group was asked to put them on twice before they finally complied.
