RV Reviews

Aug 22, 2014
We enjoyed our one evening stay...only recommendation is place could use a little updating...like that it's heavily shaded but could use some lighting at night....it's pitch black out at 4am ..so dark our dog froze when I tried getting him to leave RV for a quick walk because it was so dark outside. To be honest I didn't feel comfortable going out either.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you are camping in the woods, you can expect to find it dark at night. Mawaten New Jersey is most likely not so dark, even at 4am. We suggest bringing a flashlight.

We enjoyed our stay at your KOA campground. We liked the attitude of the owner and staff. They were upbeat and very friendly. The rate was ok, the roads somewhat bad, but overall great time. We played minigolf and went to play real golf nearby. In another campground later in the trip we payed much more per night and every little thing we had to pay extra for. Your park is great,even free coffee !

We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Outstanding campground! When we arrived I was concerned about being able get around the trees with a 40'5th wheel, but found it to be very easy. They did their homework when laying out the roads and sites to make it an very enjoyable experience.

Loved the fire pits. And your young staff was great.Liked the fact that all of your sites are shaded.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We like our trees, too. They add a nice calming atmosphere.

The campground was very nice and the staff friendly. We had a very nice site that was comparable in space to other private parks we have stayed at. The only negative was the advertised WiFi. It either didn't work or barely worked!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our WIFI is satellite dependent. It is good for email and simple web browsing. We try to make that clear on the website and when you check in.

We enjoyed it.

It is well worth the rather tortuous drive in from I-81 to this beautiful campground. Great folks to welcome campers and great facilities. Thanks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That drive has a way of reminding us to slow down and enjoy the journey. I know it can be unnerving after the wide open interstate. We appreciate you coming in despite the drive.

My wife and I have stayed here several times now. The campground is always clean and well taken care of. The staff is very friendly and we enjoy talking with them. We highly recommend this quiet KOA as an overnight or a multi night destination.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to seeing you again and continuing our lovely conversations.

Great batheooms. Great facility.

I have never had a KOA invoke the early check in fee. EVER! Then to Terry be told we are too early , that'll be $5 extra please, is very off putting. By the time we actually used any campground services, it was after check in time. It cost us $5 extra for nothing. There are other campgrounds nearby. We will stay there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you arrive early and have us drive you around the campground for 25 minutes to inspect each site you have taken a staff member from duties. You also cause us to rush to prepare the site. If you respect our established check in and check out times you will not pay for extra services.
Aug 15, 2014
Stayed here because our truck broke down. Lot of rustic character and very level, shady sites. They were very helpful, letting us renew our stay day by day until our truck was running again. Perfect place to get away from it all but be warned,if you need to stay in touch with the world, wifi is practically nonexistent.
Aug 14, 2014
We rally enjoyed our stay. Clean and very well laid out campground. Even for a big rig with tight turns, I had no problems. Will stay her again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you felt comfortable driving here in our park. We do have the turns as wide as possible and good drivers, like yourself, usually do not have trouble.
Aug 13, 2014
The only problem we had was the internet service was very poor. All employees were very nice and professional people.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, rural access to internet is satellite dependent. We have no other choices for the service. Now you know why it is free to you. We spend a large amount of money providing what we can. If I was able to buy better internet I would do so and charge for the service to recoup the investment.

We recently bought a travel trailer and chose this KOA for our maiden voyage. Everything was clean including bathrooms/showers, staff was very helpful and accommodating. They even helped us figure out the mysteries of our trailer! There were tons of activities for everyone, and special events were promoted upon checkin. We'll be back, and tell others of this wonderful place!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you chose us for your first voyage.

The staff was great. Sites were small and not much room for your vehicle or room tput up a canopy. Most KOAs I have been to have been very well groomed. This one wasn't like that. Just a lot of stone and weeds. Pool looked nice but doggie park was small and hardly no grass. Probably a great campground for an overnight stay but not a long stay. We camped here in our fifth wheel for 3 nights.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 22 where you were located is 50' x 75'. There is enough room for several canopies, awnings and cars. We are under a pine and hardwood canopy. You get a shady spot or a grassy spot...not both.
Aug 11, 2014
As always a great weekend. Mother Nature could have been a little nicer so wanted to swim but a little too cool. Other than that great time with friends and the staff as always very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This was a cool summer. I don't remember ever having to wear a jacket in August! I will put in my order of nicer weather early for next year! ;)
Aug 11, 2014
We are always so happy to stay with you! Campground is clean, well managed, and friendly! Just wish we could have better toilet tissue!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I know, I am sorry...the treatment plant does not like 2 ply...it gets all choked up...if ya know what I mean ;)

Friendly staff, clean bathrooms, enjoy this campground. Will return regularly

One of the most friendly staffs we have encountered! Beautiful, wooded, quiet spot. Most KOA'S are very close to the highway, and noisy. This was a 3.3 mile drive in through farm country and so peaceful! Loved it! Two thumbs up, Monica, for a great job there!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Seeing as how you traveled all the way from Alaska to find our beautiful place in the Shenandoah Valley, I take your words as the highest of compliments. We had so much fun having your smiling faces here. Please drop by if you are ever in the area. Thank you so very much for the kind words.

County road leading to campground is a LONG 4 miles. Lots of hills and curves on this narrow road. Our site was very narrow on the left side. We did get satellite TV from our roof dish.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Narrow on the LEFT SIDE? This site is 45 feet wide. The parking pad is 20 feet wide. I can't imagine how this is not big enough.

The campground was nice, the amenities were great, people and staff were friendly. There were some people who complained about the drive in, but it wasn't bad at all, very manageable with a big rig. The internet connection was at a minimum. Overall great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, our internet is "at a minimum" to say the least! We do our best to make up for that shortfall in other ways. As for the drive in, it is among the most beautiful 4 miles in the Valley. I wish everyone would slow down and enjoy the view as much as we do.
Aug 04, 2014
The camp grounds were kept very clean. My wife and I had a very good time during our stay. The staff was great and very pleasant.

Overall the camp was quiet and enjoyable and the staff was awesome. My only complaints were the spot we were given was right next to their breakfast trailer and about 85% of every parking spot and camp are was gravel. Very uncomfortable to camp on.
Aug 03, 2014
Nice campground, a little difficult entrance. The only negative was the wifi. Verrrry slow.
Aug 03, 2014
This was just an overnight stop, so we didn't have much time to see most of the campground. The rating might have been better, but we just don't know.
Aug 03, 2014
Easy site to back into for our one-night stay. Free miniature golf!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The mini golf is a nice way to relax at the end of a long day of driving. We are happy to provide it for free.

Wooded sites, set back from highway, helpful staff for directions around area. Central location to area attractions. We enjoyed our stay. Sites need work for leveling, but appear to be being worked on.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Oh, yes. Sitting at the base of a mountain causes the sites to shift a bit now and then. We are in a constant state of leveling and putting the stone back in place. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

yours was by far the very best! the friendlest staff. I was made to feel like part of your family. Everything was spotless and your whole family was so very helpful seeing it was my maden voyage. I can't thank you enough for your kindness and warmth. You have and are a very blessed family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We strive to be the best. Perhaps in the future we could rate a 10 rather than a 6.

Awful. Got a flat tire IN the dampgroud. Not that friendly at the checkin. Younger fellow seemed not to knowwhat was going on!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The young man you refer to is not employed as a tire repair man. We offered to call the local repair shop so you could get appropriate assistance. We certainly did nothing to cause the flat tire and are not equipped to repair tires.

very nice and quiet
