General Campground Information

Cabin Rentals

All cabin rentals require a credit card or debit card on file belonging to the person renting the cabin; no cash payments will be accepted for cabin rentals. We also require that all cabins be rented by persons aged 21 years or older; parents may not rent cabins for their children (who are under the age of 21) if the parents will not be present. Some cabins allow pets and others do not; anyone found bringing a pet into a non-pet-friendly unit will be fined $100 to the card on file. All cabin campers will be required to sign a rental agreement detailing these terms and more during check-in, and will be charged a cleaning deposit that is refunded after our housekeeping staff has cleared the cabin. This deposit is $100 for a deluxe cabin and $50 for a primitive. In order to make sure we clean the cabins thoroughly, we do not allow early check-ins or late check-outs on our cabins.

Sewer Connections and Dumping

While we do have some sites on the park with a sewer connection, about half our sites do not. We do have a dump station on site for our campers' convenience. If you will be using a sewer connection on your site, we require that you have an end to your sewer hose and do not simply place the hose into our sewer connection, as this is unsanitary and unpleasant for your neighbors. If you do not have an end for your hose, please visit our store as we have some available for sale. Any camper who attempts to use the sewer connection without an end to their hose may be asked to forgo the sewer connection on their site and use the dump station when they leave.

Tents on RV Sites

Tents are only allowed on RV sites that do NOT have cable service or sewer. There is an additional daily fee of $5 for the tent on water and electric sites that are large enough to accommodate them.

Base Rate

Our base rate includes four people of any age and two vehicles per site. Additional adults and children are billed at a rate of $5 per person/per day. Additional vehicles are billed at $5 per vehicle per day; one vehicle may park on-site and any additional vehicles must park in visitor parking. Tent site base rates include two tents; any additional tents are billed at $5 per tent/per day.

Early Check-Out

Any camper who chooses to check out early will not receive a refund for the unused portion of their stay.

Are You Struggling to Make a Reservation?

Sometimes it can be difficult to load site options on this website. Do you keep getting a message that nothing is available or that your party is too large for all the sites? First, clear your browser history. If the problem keeps cropping up, please call our office at 540/337-3920 because we may have something available that isn't available online.

Store/Office Hours

Our office is currently open from 8am - 8pm daily.


Check-in for RV and tent sites is at 1pm, to allow time for site clean-up. Cabins, cottages, and lodges have a check-in time of 3pm. Early check-ins start at 9am and are subject to availability and a fee. Please check with the office for more information. We do not allow early check-ins for cabins.

Honey Wagon

We now have a honey wagon available for those campers who choose to camp on a site without sewer and don't want to use the dump station! It's available by appointment only. Pump-outs are available every Sunday between 9am and 12pm. Contact our office to select a time. The fee for this service in $15. Pump-outs any day other than Sunday require 24 hours' notice and will cost $20 per service. We must confirm these times with our Maintenance staff. Campers who schedule a pump-out must be at their site when the honey wagon arrives to open their valves.


Check-out time is 12pm for all RV and tent sites, to allow for cleaning before new guests arrive. Guests with keys to a cabin, cottage, or lodge must check out with the office no later than 11am. Late check-outs may be available for a small fee, which would change the check-out time to 6pm. Please check with the office for more information. We do not allow late check-outs on cabins.

Quiet Hours

Quiet hours are between 10pm and 8am, seven days per week.


Our pool is open seven days a week between 10am and 8pm during our peak season (between Memorial Day and Labor Day). We do not have a life guard on duty, and so we ask that those under 18 be supervised by a parent or other responsible adult. If you are interested in coming out to swim but not to camp, please contact our office about season passes. To better serve our campers, we are no longer offering day use of the pool to local visitors.

Game Room

The game room is open daily between 10am and 8pm, April - November.


There are two bathhouses on the property, both with laundry facilities. The Upper Bathhouse (located near the Meeting Room and the primitive cabins) contains the ADA bathroom, and is closed for cleaning daily between 11:30am and 1pm daily. The Lower Bathhouse, located near the Playground, is closed for cleaning daily between 1pm and 2:30pm.

Cancellation Policy

While we certainly want you to come camp with us, sometimes things come up and you may have to cancel. With more than 48 hours' notice for tent and RV sites and 72 hours' notice for cabins and lodges, there is a $10.00 cancellation fee. If we receive less than 48 hours' notice for RV and tent sites or less than 72 hours' notice for a cabin or lodge, we will be unable to refund your deposit. Holiday and premium weekends, such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, Independence Day, and our Halloween weekends are non-refundable.

Firewood Policy

Due to the chance of transferring non-native insects and diseases, we ask that you not bring your own firewood to our park. Please do not scavenge firewood from our wooded areas or cut or damage any trees. We are happy to provide firewood for you at a rate of $6.50 for one crate or $12.00 for two and we deliver it to your site.


A maximum of six people per site is allowed at any time. All visitors must register with the front desk upon entrance to the park and are charged $5.00 per person, regardless of whether we have entertainment planned that day. The day fee is refundable if the visitor gets a time-stamped receipt and stops back in the office on their way out within two hours of arrival. Visitors must display a car pass in their vehicle at all times and may be required to park in visitor parking. Visitors may not park in other sites while on the park. Visitors are welcome to use all the facilities of the park, including the bathhouses, horseshoe pits, pool, pond, and game room, and may partake in any weekend activities.


We ask that campers limit themselves to two vehicles per site. One vehicle may be parked at the site but because of limited space, any additional vehicles must park in the visitor lots. Any vehicles beyond the two allowed in the base rate will be subject to a $5.00 per day fee. All vehicles must display a parking pass while on the park. Have your own golf cart, scooter, or motorbike? Please register it with our office upon arrival. You will need proof of insurance and must display our pass while on the park.

Off-Season Camping

Our peak season is mid-April - mid-November. However, we are open all year with limited facilities. Some sites and cabins may be unavailable during the off-season due to winterized pipes and sewer lines, and the pool and game room are closed. Interested in cabin camping? If you're looking for a cabin with a kitchen and bathroom, we ask 24 hours notice to book the site, and require a two night minimum in our off-season.

How Many Feet is That Site?

We have a large variety of sites in all different lengths. In order to fit your RV to the right site, we need to know the length of your RV and, sometimes, your vehicle as well. This means that we also need to know the length of the tongue on your trailer or the overhang on your fifth wheel. We also need to know the total length of a motorhome with a tow vehicle. Depending upon the site we assign you, we may have to ask you to disconnect your vehicle as well.

Meet Your Hosts

The Zipser Family

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.
