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.

Easter Weekend - April 4 & 5, 2015
Start the season by welcoming Spring at Walnut Hills! It may be early in the year, but we're planning family-friendly fun for kids of all ages! This weekend's activities will feature kids' crafts and an Easter Egg Hunt, as well as Sunday morning services and a special themed hay ride (weather permitting). You may even catch a glimpse of the Easter Bunny!
Care Camps Weekend - May 8 - 10, 2015
This weekend we'll be raising money for KOA Care Camps with our third annual raffle and silent auction, featuring GREAT prizes from local businesses and artisans. We'll also be making gifts for Mom, playing candy bar bingo, and racing rubber duckies in our creek.

Memorial Day Weekend - May 22 - 25, 2015
Help us kick off the season with the opening of our pool! With everyone off from work and school, this is the perfect time to play messy games, make crafts, and compete in rubber ducky races, and a blind-entry cornhole tournament. There is a three night minimum for this weekend.
Fathers' Day Weekend - June 19 - 21, 2015
Let's celebrate Dad with our Second Annual Family Olympics. Parents and their kids can sign up to compete in events like the egg carry, three-legged race, and more. Organized activities not your thing? Bring your fishing gear and head to the lake, or pick up some horseshoes in the office and see who'd got the best arm. Kids 17 and under are free this weekend (although, as always, we ask that there remain a six person limit per site).
Everyone's Birthday - June 26 - 28, 2015
Get your face painted in the morning, or make a birthday card for that relative who's birthday you always forget. Meet at our pavilion Saturday afternoon to decorate cupcakes ($) and play birthday party games (Pin the Tail on the Donkey, anyone?).
Care Camps Weekend Success!
We did something a little different this year; instead of giving our campers a free night for Care Camps weekend, we gave our campers a tax-deductible half-price Saturday night when they booked Friday, with the second night's fees going directly to Care Camps.
We also worked REALLY hard with the help of local businesses and artisans to bring our campers an AMAZING raffle and silent auction, with such prizes as drive-in movie tickets, gift certificates to area restaurants and shops, tickets to the American Shakespeare Center, and more.
Between all these efforts, our FANTASTIC campers helped us raise over $1,500 for KOA Care Camps, more than five times what we raised last year. Thanks to you guys, to our amazing local community, and our campers, we had an incredibly successful Care Camps weekend (despite the rain!).
We can't wait to do it all again next year!
Dog Park Open for Pooches!
After several weeks of long hours at work, our dog park is now open to your canine friends! The park is without water, so you may wish to come prepared with water and a bowl for your furry pal, but there's a large, grassy fenced area for play, as well as a picnic table in the shade for you.
We do ask that all pet parents stay with their dog during playtime.
Upper Bathhouse Now Open All Year!
We've finally installed a heating system in our Upper Bathhouse, and so now it's open year-round! Tent and cabin campers will no longer need to trek down to the Lower Bathhouse to shower or do laundry in the winter - yippee!
Camping near the lake or in the meadow? We have great news for you, too. The Lower Bathhouse ALSO has a new heating system, so you'll stay toasty during your showers, too.
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 its newest addition - campground baby Anthony (see right). He's frequently seen around the campground, often in the company of his grandma or father, feeding ducks and playing on the playground.
