RV Reviews

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.

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.

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!

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...

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.

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.
May 21, 2015
Loved it. Nice and quite. Long way off the hwy but that was not an issue for us. Thankful to have the pullthru site for a few days.
May 21, 2015
A great campground, very clean and neat. We had a great site. Our grandson loved the chickens wondering around. Pool just opened, nice and clean too. Not far off I-81 in actually miles, but seams like your out in the wilderness which makes it nice and quiet. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
May 20, 2015
not a good campground if you have dogs with you. too many rocks and not enough grass. pet area too far from site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our campground is under a Pine and Oak tree canopy. It is impossible to have these trees and grass. Our fenced in pet playground has grass and is located near the front of the campground. In the future, please request a site near the pet playground.

We've stayed here previously and plan to return when in the area.

Very nice
May 14, 2015
Our stay was wonderful! Our reservation was made directly from the front desk via our cell phone while on the road. She was so pleasant. The grounds were so clean. Even the fire pit was not only clean, but very sturdy. Our camping space was larger than we've had during our trip. We are talking about coming back! Thank you for making our time worth our unfortunate short stay.

I had a wonderful time and was made very welcome over a month long stay. The amenities and the staff were excellent!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad you found us and we had a place for you. Welcome to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley! We hope you like living here as much as we do.
May 12, 2015
We stayed a week and would love to stay a month! Monica and her staff are top notch and the campground was the best we stayed in 10 years. The surrounding area is perfect for motorcycles and we will be back with ours again! Thank you for the great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you found us. Please do come back. We love seeing bikes and helping you find great rides. There is lots more for you to explore in our beautiful valley....and bring the bear! Everyone got a kick out of seeing him waving from your site.

Check in was quick and easy. Sewer drain area for our campsite was disgustingly dirty. Normally we would have flushed out our tanks, but chose not to at our site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Perhaps you are thinking of another campground. I have checked site 42 myself and found it to be clean and sanitary. Our sewer pipes are covered, clean on the outside and the ground surrounding the drains are kept clean.
May 11, 2015
Nice people very clean

Good site for overnight. Friendly staff
May 11, 2015
It was brief, but nice.
May 11, 2015
Very pleasant surroundings. This campground had the most fully stocked store of any campground I've been in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We try to anticipate needs and be on the ready!

We have stayed at this campground before. I accidentally selected this campground because of a similarity in names with the koa we wanted. Our problem with this koa is not the facility itself, but the 3.3 mile access road to and from the facility. It is a narrow, winding, cowpath. It may be ok for tag-a-longs and 5th wheels, but it was scary for our 39 foot Class A. I took pictures to documen

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The road leading to our campground is located at the end of a standard DOT double yellow line road. We are not on a "cow path". Tractor trailers and tanker trucks navigate this road with no trouble. We have had 45 foot motor homes pulling 30 foot trailers down here with no issues.
May 11, 2015
We arrived miserable due to rig problems we were having, but quickly decompressed due to the hospitality of Monica and her staff. The next morning she stopped by to make sure our site was suitable, as we did not have the use of our stabilizer jacks. This is a beautiful campground in the hardwood forest with a mountain hiking trail on the property.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you found our campground to be a calming place. It is never easy when things go wrong on a trip. We are here to help smooth the way.
May 11, 2015
This is our favorite getaway campground. My grandmother passed away the weekend before and my husband knew I needed to get away. Monica's staff is so friendly and respectful. They make you feel at home. We will definitely return over and over again. Snow boots mom

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts go to your family. We try to make this a home away from home and are honored to know you came to us to take time to heal. ... say Hi to snow boots for us and.... watch out for site 67...they had water guns!
