We take pride in offering lots of fun activities for our campers. From self-directed activities like horseshoes and fishing to big weekend extravaganzas (fireworks for Independence Day, anyone?), we go out of our way to make sure there's a ton to do when you're here!
Open from 10am - 8pm during our busy season, our game room offers skeeball, a pool table, air hockey, and more. Redeem your tickets in our store for a penny a ticket and reward your efforts with a piece of candy!
On major weekends, we have tournaments, but that doesn't mean you can't practice at other times! Stop in our office to pick up your horseshoes and go see who wins!
NOTE: Our horseshoe pits are currently unavailable due to repairs. We hope to have them available to our campers again soon! We do have cornhole boards available for loan in the office.
Fish in Lake Kerplonken
We have four kinds of fish and we hope you catch them all! No fishing license is needed, but we do ask that campers either catch and release or only take the fish they plan to eat.
Swim in the Pool
Our pool is open from 10am - 8pm seven days a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Meet Your Hosts
"Please join us at our beautiful park for a relaxing long weekend with your family!"When Andy retired from a life-long career in journalism, he and his wife, Carin, resurrected a decades-old dream of owning a campground. They sold everything (including their own RV) and spent more than a year searching for just the right property, visiting dozens of campgrounds between South Carolina and Maine before finding the Staunton/Walnut Hills KOA.
They purchased the property in January 2013 with with their two daughters and sons-in-law, making this a real family business. In May 2013, the family welcomed a new addition, Anthony (see right). In December of 2014, another new baby (Matthew) was added to the campground. Both kids are often seen around the park, feeding ducks and greeting campers in the office.
