Very nice, pet friendly KOA with great hiking trail. We enjoyed all the planned activities, especially the ice cream sundaes!

Nice clean bathrooms, friendly staff, and well supplied camp store. Enjoyed the camp site and it was convenient to the highway.

it was hottt would like to have seen pool open longer mini golf needs repair

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thankyou for your comments. We really have no control over the hot weather and having a pool open after dark with no lifeguard is not allowed here. We are glad you enjoyed the free minigolf. We have minigolf repairs slated as we attempt to repair the vandalism.

I was offended by the display of flags and decals promoting homosexual culture. This is inappropriate for a family campground. It ruined for us an otherwise beautiful site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Harrisonburg/Shenandoah Valley KOA Campground is a family friendly campground where ALL families are welcome.

Its to far out and the bugs are bad there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are 4 miles due East from exit 257 off I-81. This ensure we do not experience highway noise. We are located in the woods, so one should expect some wildlife and insects.

Guide took us different route to our camp site than the office had laid out. Hard turn was impossible with towed. Lucky I was able to get it un hooked. Entrance to site 61 was so uneven and steep, twisted the MH and put a stress crack in the front wind shield, has to be replaced. The toilets in the mens room where covered in fecal matter. Not all tree limbs are cut back, scrape against the MH.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The management wishes to apologize for the issues you experienced with the escort taking an incorrect route to the site at our campground. I heard about the issue after the fact as was not aware of any damage to your RV.

We were impressed with the staff at the campground. They were very friendly and helpful.

Why would you charge 4 a visitor to visit someone at the camp. Just doesn't make since.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Charging for visitors is common practice at campgrounds. Visitors are given the same access to all of the amenities provided by the campground as other paying customers.

campground is in a very quiet convenient location.the staff was super friendly and helpful. the campground was very clean and well taken care of. The big rig sites are very large. the sights to see in that area are amazing. definitely worth the trip!

Great campground! It was very nicely equipped. Everything worked. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff.
Jun 04, 2015
Staff was extremely friendly. The KOA was not well suited for a Motorhome, as the camp sites were on a downward slope (ie, hill). Recommend leveling.
Jun 04, 2015
Too far off the highway for a quick stop (1-2 nights). Quiet and peaceful during the week, but not much in the area. Would not return to this KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are 4 miles due East from I-81. We are surrounded by many wonderful things such as caverns, wineries, battlefields, museums, Skyline Drive, an active art and music community, antique stores, flea markets, canoeing and more. We are sorry you did not find anything to satisfy your needs.

Had a wonderful time. Monica told me where to put my kayak in, Carol told me about the trail to the top of the mountain. Played putt putt, another game, ran, biked, hiked and kayaked. The dogs really enjoyed the stream by the dog walk.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed our campground and beautiful area. We look forward to seeing you again!

Very friendly staff. We have a very sweet pit mix and a hound mix and it was so nice to find a campground they were both welcome at! Very clean and organized campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a family friendly and dog friendly campground where everyone and every dog is welcomed. No exceptions!

enjoyable as always!!! great weather and always a pleasure to talk to Monica and her family!!! Love the chickens

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are so sweet and a pleasure to see anytime. Our hens are great entertainment!

Great sites and people - plenty of room between the units. It gets a bit buggy in this part of the country so bring bug spray and citronella candles for the gnats.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words! ... the gnats love the woods! We are just glad they don't bite or sting! We are hoping to teach the chickens to eat them as they fly. No luck, so far...

Good clean place. Was only there for an overnight

Very nice but a little muddy after rain. More gravel would help. Staff was very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Oh, gosh. Yes we had lots of mud at your site. My apologies for that mess. We have rebuilt the runoff berms and laid tons of mulch down until we can get grass to grow on there! We hope to see you again.

This campground was great! Clean friendly convienent. I was pleased with the activities offered for all ages.
May 27, 2015
We were there with 28 extended family members from 3 states. The campground was very pretty and we'll maintain. Very impressed with the customer service that was extended by the whole crew. We will be back next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

What a terrific and fun family! We enjoyed meeting the crew! Thanks for choosing our campground for your family get together! See you next year!

Restrooms very clean and maintained. All workers friendly. Good place for kids. Memorial Day fireworks and juggler added bonus. Everything explained when checked in. Didn't quite understand arm bands but feel it was to keep locals out. Sites could be more level.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Wristbands during holiday weekends streamline many things from reuniting lost children, to guests instantly knowing where to have their firewood or pizza delivered by looking at the # on the band.
May 27, 2015
Nice, clean campground with many things to do. Lot sizes vary in width greatly, but most seemed "eyeball level" We had a width issue in our original site, after a 20 minute wait, they gave me a wider site. Needing an escort to move was overkill. But, I'm sure they get people who can't back their rigs in a 40 acre field. Witnessed staff mock customers once they walked away twice.Propane is high.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were not pleased with your original site and my staff worked to get you into a premium site. This did take time as it was a busy Holiday weekend. The staff is always polite and willing to not only guide campers to their site but assist them in getting parked.
May 27, 2015
Stay was good. Facilities very clean and accomodating. Purchased firewood and could not get a good fire going. Not dry enough. Other campers had the same problem. Wood was not dry enough. Other than that, no complaints !!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for the firewood issue. We have spoken to the vendor and are assure it will not happen again.
May 26, 2015
CLEAN AND GREAT STAFF WAS A GREAT WEEKEND.

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.
May 26, 2015
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.
May 26, 2015
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 22, 2015
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.
