We Had A Great Time, Very Clean And Every One Was so Friendly! Thank You So Much Micheal For Helping My Sister Put Up Her Tent!

Friendly staff.

Our stay at this KOA was very pleasant. There were lots of things to do at and nearby the grounds, the staff was helpful and accommodating, and there was even a rooster to gently announce the arrival of day (not too loudly though). I would give 5 stars except that the sites, at least the tent sites, are very close together for the most part. We'll be returning and would recommend this KOA.

1st time at a KOA. Staff was excellent, site was nice.

Good camp ground, easy directions and signage to find the site. The activities over Labor Day were great for the kids - tie dying, juggling, fireworks. Our one issue was in the boundary markings for site g1, g3 - the g3 occupants had pitched in part of our site (g1) as it was badly marked - by the time we both realised it wasn't worth moving and there were no other sites available.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry for the issue. The two sites are so large it seems the people on G3 did not realize they could place their tent over near their site marker rather than right smack dab on top of the water and electric access. This is on our list of issues to resolve.

Very fun. Good staff, clean restrooms and shower and wonderful fire works show!!

I've never stayed at a koa before and now I know why. the campground was full of rocks and trip hazards and a lot of overgrown grass and mosquitos. There was not grill on the fire pit. Campsites small and no level place for tent. Bathrooms were clean- plus!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Walking through sites will cause trip hazards as we delineate the sites with boulders. You were the only person with mosquitoes that night and we do not provide grills on our primitive tent sites. We do provide fire rings. Perhaps you are better off in a hotel.

Great facility, clean bathrooms, wonderful staff, lots of great activities for the kids. Would definitely stay here again!

A great time was had by all during our week long stay. The staff was very friendly. The sites were oddly shaped, but well kept and the bath rooms were very clean. We really appreciated the peace and quiet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ah, yes. Our tent sites are placed between the trees to ensure privacy and a wooded "camping feeling". We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.

I was a late arrival for a camp site. This was my first time to stay here, and only stopped, to get out of driving up I-81 in heavy thunderstorms. Nice wooded camp site, and quite. I will definitely go back and stay longer.

Our family had a great time! The staff was very respective and accommodating to our needs. The area was nice and they have a great trail to hike on. Can't wait to go back!

We are always glad to see kids having fun on the campground. We look forward to seeing you again.

It's super comfortable and we can even have wifi access. The price is a bit high though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed the comfortable site, clean bathrooms, hot showers, access to internet, water and electricity. Not to mention the safe atmosphere and well kept grounds. You can stay in Shenandoah National park for less money and fewer services.

Out of the 3 KOAs I stayed at one my trip, this was by far the nicest. Bathrooms were cleaner than mine at home! A lot of activities, as well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind comments. We do our best to be our best!

We enjoyed our stay very much; friendly staff, clean and spacious. Our only disappointment is that my husband and I didn't get to try out the bounce pillow after the kids had gone to sleep because we didn't want to break the closing at dusk rule ;)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words...I do believe you have us confused with another campground...we have no bounce pillow...or was that a joke my tired mind did not get? ;)

Nice and quite away from the highway. You can see the stars clearly. Brakes beware, it's a hilly, winding road in.
Jul 21, 2014
Campground was clean but the tent sites were poorly marked and trees were overgrown. It was difficult to find a spot for our tent because of the branches and weeds that had not been cut back. We had been assigned a spot but when we got there, it had been taken. Frustrating to try and find an unfamiliar cpsite at 12am. Large unmarked rocks along road made it hard to maneuver around facility in car.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trying to find a tent site and set up at 1am in the morning can be frustrating. Perhaps in the future, you could arrive earlier so you can set up when others are not trying to sleep or book a hotel room.
Jul 19, 2014
What a wonderful time we had. It was the first time in a long-time we tent kamped! We plan to do more. Bath house was clean and everything was convenient. There was so much to do in the area. Great time living in the "outdoors"!
Jul 17, 2014
We arrived early, and asked if we could set up early (prior to a storm), and were informed that no one had been in the site the previous night, and it would cost an additional 10 dollars. Compared to other campgrounds that I have visited, this is very uncommon to charge to set up early. We chose to not pay additional money, and got caught in rain. Aside from this one experience, the stay was great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check in is a 2pm. Check out is at noon. In our attempt to keep the campground running smoothly we must have certain rules. We do charge a convenience fee for early or late checkin/out. It was your choice to wait until the check in time. We have no control over the weather.
Jul 14, 2014
Super nice! Staff is friendly and very helpful. Facility is clean, very family oriented. Loved it!
Jul 14, 2014
Very friendly and informative staff? I was impressed how clean the campground was and the activities for everyone! Thank you for an enjoyable stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of all the terrific things we have to offer.

We had a great stay at this KOA! This location has super clean bathrooms and has a well maintained pool the staff was really friendly. The location is beautiful and wooded. The playground was well kept and we went by the fishing pond on site and also went down the hiking trail at the KOA. Shenandoah Vinyard and several museums as close as well as Skyline Drive which I would say is a must.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you were able to stay with us. Thank you for the kind words and detailed review! It sounds like your family enjoyed exploring our beautiful area! Thank you for choosing our campground as a base.

Our Church Youth Group had a great time. Ray and Susie (I believe those are the right names) were wonderful. Very clean bath houses and nice sites. Thanks for a great stay!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing our campground for your youth group trip. I will pass your kind words on to Ray and Sisie. They are great!

They were so friendly to our three boys and treated us like family. It's a beautiful place to stay, and it was such a memorable vacation for us. It brought us closer as a family. They have so many activities for kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your boys were easy to treat like family. They are nice and fun to have around. Thanks for choosing our campground. We hope to see your family again.

We had a great stay. Staff was friendly. Grounds we very well kept and the bath/shower rooms were very very clean. Only complaint was the claim of WiFi. We were there for a week and could not get WiFi at all, and that was trying several different times of the day. All in all .. a great time was had by all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, our WIFI is a challenge. We wish it was something we could go to the store for and buy better WIFI. We hope to see you again.

Was a great stay. Only complaint I have was the folks on site next to us was in and out all night in there car. And when they decided to stay in the was a little loud. I guess the didn't understand the concept of quit time. But we enjoyed our stay and the staff was just great all everyone we came across was very friendly and greater us with a smile. Great job Harrisonburg/Shenandoah Valley KOA

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry you had noise from your neighbors. We do try to keep the place as quiet as possible. Sadly, there are times when people do not realize the noise they are generating.

Site near the creek was nice and peaceful
Apr 28, 2014
For a small campground, I felt comfortable and safe and the employees were very courteous. The bathrooms were excellent! However, the price felt a little too high for one night in a tent site

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry you felt the price was too high. We are very glad you felt safe, comfortable and found the bathrooms to be clean. We work very hard to keep the campground clean, safe and a nice place to stay.

Very nice campground!!! Extremely helpful staff and clean facilities!!! Had to leave very early due to unexpected emergency at home but wil most definitely be returning when the weather is warmer!!

I try to stay in this campground at least once a year. I love it here. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the campground is very well maintained.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We are happy to offer a quiet, clean and pleasant place for all.

The place was pretty nice, staff was helpful as they could be. If you get a tent site with electrical make sure to bring a long extension cord because our site was over 50 feet away from the electrical outlet...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The electric and water pedestal is located between the tent sites. If you need to have electricity inside the tent and you want to place your tent on the far side of the site away from the electric and water pedestal you will want to bring a long extension cord.

We spent the weekend tent camping at this KOA. We were really impressed with how clean the facilities were and all of the activities that were planned for the weekend. It also is close to the interstate, which makes it easily accessible. A great campground!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you found us! This is our first year having Halloween activities and we have had a terrific response! I hope you enjoyed everything and the beautiful colors mother nature provides this time of your!

I arrived late to my tent site to find that the RV located adjacent to my site had already set up their satellite antenna right in the middle of my tent site. I had to set up my tent in a less than desirable area. Other than that issue, the campground was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Sadly, you arrived after hours or we would have relocated you to a different site.
Oct 18, 2013
We had a great first experience camping here. The campground was clean and quiet, check-in and check-out was smooth even though we arrived late at night, and the woman at the front desk was a joy to talk to!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind comments. I will let her know she made a good impression. Thanks for letting me know!

The only downfall of this campground that I found is only having one bath house. When the bath house is closed for cleaning (daily from 12-2) there is no other restroom for use. The staff was nice enough to let me use the restroom during cleaning though... a huge plus when tenting.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are welcome! We try to have the bathhouse fully closed only a very short amount of time each day. We state the cleaning time as 12-2 to give us enough time in case they need extra attention and to give the freshly washed floors time to fully dry before allowing people to walk on them.
