Thomas Jefferson's magnificent Monticello is a big draw here, and so is the woodsy Charlottesville KOA.

Thomas Jefferson's magnificent Monticello is a big draw here, and so is the woodsy Charlottesville KOA in the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills, where dogwoods bloom in spring and hardwoods blaze with brilliant fall colors. It's just a half hour to Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway for stunning vistas, hiking trails, cave tours and waterfalls. Visit a trio of historic sites: Monticello, Highland (home of James Monroe) and Michie Tavern, where a costumed staff serves an 18th-century lunch. Also tour Jefferson's lovely University of Virginia campus and Walton's Mountain Museum, which recreates some of the real John Boy's life. Try tubing and rafting on the nearby James River, enjoy a wine tasting at a local vineyard or dine in downtown Charlottesville. Back at KOA, enjoy the pool, sports field, game room, beaver pond and pedal karts. Pool: Memorial Weekend - Labor Day Weekend. Max pull thru: 65 feet. Your hosts: Bryan and Ashley.
