Poor Wi-Fi connection. 25 foot motorhome barely fit in site, traffic right outside our window. Chicken squawking all the time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow, the chickens had not even made it out of the coop area during your stay. I cannot see how you heard them 500 feet away. Site 19 has a large yard and fit your camper end to end, with room to spare, and was near the bath house as requested. One should expect to hear RV's driving by in an RV park.

This KOA is in the deep dark woods and not easy to get into for a one night stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, we are 4 miles from I-81. We have no trains, highway noise or loudspeaker noise. We are covered by a natural canopy of Oak, Walnut and Pine trees.

nice place to stay but they need to resolve the wifi problem from sat to tues am no wifi if you list it you should have it otherwise very nice place to stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Being in the mountains and depending on a satellite, the internet connection presents WIFI issues. If it were possible to "resolve" these issues we would certainly do so.

We had a great time.

Staff was great. Sites were somewhat small.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 64 is a private site, with few neighbors, and is looking into the woods. Had you requested a different site, we would have happily moved you.

A woodsy environment with helpful staff make this a good choice.

Had a terrific stay as usual. Even after a torrential downpouring rain and flooding staff worked hard cleaning up the campground the next day and went out of their way to get water off of all the campsites. Could not ask for better service. One of my favorite campgrounds. Already have future reservations.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We put 4 tons of stone on "your" site! No more water coming out of the ground! We look forward to seeing your smiling face!

The quality and upkeep of this KOA has slipped over the past several years. Simple things like keeping the playground safe, clean, and freshly painted would go a long way. Drainage issues plague the grounds... A few culverts and regrading washed out roads would help immensely. Better signage.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are at the base of a mountain and have experienced severe rain storms this spring(2-4 inches per hour). We regrade the roads on a weekly basis.We have added culverts and redirected runoff for the 6 years we owned this place. The playground has been painted and meets all safety regulations.

One of the cleanest and most up to date bathrooms / showers we have seen in any KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for noticing! We do our best to keep everything clean and comfortable. Thank you for the kind words.

Had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hiking was so accessible and plenty of shade, with plenty of peace and quiet. We will definitely be back.

Had a great weekend in mid-May. Kampground is very clean, same with rest rooms. Sites were nicely shaded. We'll absolutely be coming back to this KOA location.

The road into park is un-nerving.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you feel the incoming road is unnerving. After driving on the interstate, going onto a standard DOT road, with trees and curves, can feel closed in. Sadly, we cannot do anything about the road leading to our campground or your perception of the road. How did you like the campground?
May 18, 2014
On arrival I thought the grounds needed a little TLC. We stayed for three days and in that short time the staff had it looking better. The bathrooms and showers were very well kept. We loved all the trees! The staff was very friendly. I think we will be making a return trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for noticing our hard work! We do our best to keep the campground as clean, safe and comfortable as possible! You arrived right after a severe storm and area wide flooding event. We cleaned up as fast as possible, while trying not to make too much noise. We look forward to seeing you again

I was VERY disappointed after seeing the laundry machines were old and in such poor condition. I would never have used those machines! The women's bathroom was clean, but had one long light out and the shower areas were dark. Staff was very friendly, but overall condition of roads & sites made walking & set up difficult. Definitely Not an AWARD winner park!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry we do not have front loading, brand new machines. Our laundry machines work well, are clean and in good condition and are in the process of having a mural painted on them. If you had turned on the light switch in the ladies room, you would have found all of the lights in working order.

Campground was very nice and the employee's were friendly. Only thing I didn't like was the price of firewood and not being able to bring our own. I like to cook over an open fire when camping and 5 dollars for 8 very small pieces of wood, some just slivers, made that impossible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are adjacent to the George Washington National Forest and do not allow foreign wood to be brought into the campground. In the future, we can recommend local places where you can purchase all the wood you want to carry.

Great KOA. Friendly Staff and the best ribs we have ever eaten. Will definitely go back here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As much as I would like to accept credit for the best ribs you have ever eaten, I do believe you have us mistaken with another KOA. We do hope you enjoyed your stay with us.

This is a lovely KOA in the Quiet Country setting! Clean & very friendly Owners/workampers!

great country setting with wide option of sites and superb washrooms

Terrible access road from interstate. Very crowded campsites with many obstacles. Not big rig friendly. WIFI only works on sunny, cloudless days???? Will not recommend, or return!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 20, where you were, is 75 feet long and 40 feet wide. It is one of the nicest, easiest sites we have. I do not see how you would consider that crowded or full of obstacles. We are in the mountains, the WIFI relies on satellite for access, so yes, it works better on sunny days.
May 08, 2014
Very secluded, friendly staff

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoy site 22.

Because I own my own business, I really need a reliable network. It was a mess. I travel the world and this network was not useable. Looks like you have contracted it out and I hope that isn't the case for all KOAs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in the mountains and WIFI can be very unreliable. It is advisable to bring one's own secure internet connection when one needs to do business activities.
May 05, 2014
Hosts were wonderful and very helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Internet was spotty at best, that should be definitely improved.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If good internet was something we could go purchase we would certainly do so. Sadly, we are in the mountains and the woods and WIFI reception is going to be spotty, at best.

Definitely a roller coaster ride to the kampground! 4 miles took about 30 minutes. Very nice park. Site was sloped beyond what our levelers would support in our 40ft motor home. Stay should be longer than one night to really enjoy and offset the ride in. Kinda pricey. Seasonal rates for amenities not available for use. If you own a pet, this is the place. We do not own a pet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the road in can be interesting in a 40 Motor home after the wide open freeways. We are 4 miles in on a standard DOT double yellow line road that supports 18 wheeler traffic from the local businesses.
