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!
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.
Campground EventsListing Calendar
Easter Weekend - April 19 & 20, 2014
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.
Lodgings Open House - April 26, 2014
Ever wonder what those cabins look like? Maybe you have friends who don't have an RV, or are planning a family reunion. Come on out April 26 between 12pm and 3pm to see the insides of several of our lodgings. Refreshments will be served.
This event is open to non-campers who stop in the office for a map.
Care Camps and Swap Meet Weekend - May 9 - 11
Got some stuff rattling around in your RV that is too good to toss out but you just don't need anymore? Bring it here! Campers who want to participate in the swap meet can get a table in our pavilion for $5 (proceeds go to Care Camps) and swap or sell their gently-used items. Don't want to cart it away with you? If items are still in good shape, we'll donate them to a local charity for you!
Campers can also bring items to donate for our second annual Care Camps raffle (raffle ticket fees also go to KOA Care Camps). Finally, we'll give you a great deal: book one night and get the second half off, with all proceeds from the second nights' sales going towards Care Camps.
Learn more about KOA Care Camps, which send children with cancer to camp.

Let's celebrate Dad with our first ever 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?

Events Schedule for 2014 Posted!
We've posted our events schedule for 2014! There's going to be a ton of fun stuff going on around here and you don't want to miss any of it!
Don't see your favorite event? We're still booking some entertainers, so check back to see if we've added anything new.
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.
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.
Store Upgrades Almost Complete!
While you've been making your summer plans, we've been upgrading our store! Next time you come in, you'll see quite a change - gone are the dim, dingy walls, replaced with bright colors and clean white trim. Be sure to check out our display of new stock near our coffee corner, and head to the back of the store to see our great new t-shirts and sweatshirts, including brand-new zipper hoodies in a new design!
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 aunt or father, feeding ducks and playing on the playground.
