Virginia Beach KOA, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $82.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this KOA at the last minute. I have avoided these large "parking lot" style campgrounds up to now. But this campground had bigger sites than I expected and many amenities for children and families. Of course we paid more to be this close to a major beach, but our destinations were close by, and we spent very little time driving once we got into VA Beach. There is a city shuttle that stops at KOA and takes campers to the beach and other attractions in VA Beach. Activities at the campground included 2 pools, a jumping pad, an inflatable slide, ping pong, life size chess game, large tricycles and golf carts for rent, 2 playgrounds, basketball, horseshoes and other games. Back in the middle center section (around the 120's) there was a seedy area with a camper or two that looked permanent and very run down. Other than that, things were clean and appeared well cared for. There were a lot of people there, yes; but folks were having fun. I would stay there again. We camped at Virginia Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA), Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful park. We stayed here only one night on our way home from an extensive camping trip, but we would gladly have stayed longer. The people in the office were very helpful and, when we asked to upgrade to another longer site so that we did not have to unhook, they were very accommodating. We walked around the campground in the evening and were very impressed with most of the sites. The sites up on the hill, 52 through 86, are lovely and the Patio Sites have patio swings as well as paving. There is nice shade up there also. Sites 24 through 33 and 87 through 98 by the lake are also very nice. T28 is a beautifully secluded tent site! We would have been disappointed to be assigned sites 107 through 111. All five of those sites have a steep bank out the camper door and very little flat area around the camper. For someone who just wants to sit outside their door, that might work well, but if there are more people who would like to sit together, pets, or children who need a little space, those sites would be a poor choice. We were in site 88, which has a retaining wall and lots of grass below. That was a lot better. Sites 99 through 126 are in a converted field. They are all pull through sites and would be great for folks travelling through, but during the hot months the only shady relief in that area is on the backside of sites 99 through 106. The pool and playground make this place very kid friendly, and several families seemed to be enjoying fishing in the lake. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We did not spend enough time near Staunton to find out the amenities. I will say that the rolling hills and farms in this area are lovely. Even though this campground is near the highway, it is far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful.

Northwest River Park Campground, Chesapeake, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

We made reservations at this park. We did arrive to camp there, but some of our plans had changed since reserving, and we realized we were further from VA Beach than we had hoped. We might have stayed at Northwest anyway, but then we discovered that there were only about 2 spigots of water for each 4 campsites. Since we were already not feeling positive about the location (our fault completely, NOT the park's fault) we decided to call another campground in VA Beach and were able to camp there instead. This camp seemed very nice and the people working there were helpful. We have no gripe with the camp EXCEPT that, upon making reservations, it should be made clear that each site does not have it's own water spigot. In our case we would have had to run a hose through someone else's site to fill up each day or so. We camped at Northwest River Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Colonial Pines Campground at Williamsburg Christian Retreat Center, Toano, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Williamsburg Christian Retreat Center has camps for children and provides space for groups to worship, and for anyone to have a time of retreat and relaxation. While this is true, the campground is open to all and you may come and go as you like. The campground is separated from the area where the children are playing while at camp and is very quiet. There is a pool on site that is open to those camping there. The campground is very wooded and nice. The sites are not large, but are separated nicely from each other. We drove at least 20 minutes to get to Historic Willaimsburg, but did not mind being out of the tangle of roads around the more tourist oriented area. The people at Williamsburg Retreat Center are VERY helpful. We ran late arriving and they called us to make sure we knew where to find the papers with instructions, campsite information, and helpful phone numbers upon our arrival. They also shared with us very helpful information concerning visiting Williamsburg and the other attractions. We camped at Colonial Pines Campground at Williamsburg Christian Retreat Center in a Travel Trailer.

Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park, Newark, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Island Resort Campground is a large campground, but sites are well spaced out for the most part. I think some of the sites would be more pleasant than others. In general the setting is lovely! We were there during the not part of summer, so I particularly noticed which sites had some shade and which sites did not. The "N" sites, N1 through N31, are in an area with no shade. Some of those sites do have concrete patios. They seemed close together to me as we rode around. Sites 1 through 17 are beside the lake. Beginning with #7 there are large evergreen trees between the sites and the lake. The trees give shade in the mornings, and can be a shady space for fishing or playing at any time of day. Spaces 94, 95, and 96 were tucked in among some trees. Site 23 through 30 have young trees beside each site that did provide some shade and will continue to do more as the trees grow. The river bank on that side is very steep. Sites 73 through 93 are prime as they have large evergreen trees that give great shade in the afternoons and all day if you are on the lake. 31 through 59 are out in the open. The area there on that side of the lake houses several more permanent campers with PVC sewer lines, etc. Pool and lake swimming facility are great at Island Resort. The lake is lovely and great for kayaking. Kids and adults alike enjoy riding bikes around the area. There is nothing real close to this park, but for campers looking for a quiet, away campground, with a day at Assateague as an option, this is a great option. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely campground in a beautiful park. The campground consists of 3 rows not counting the entrance row beside the host sites. All of the campsites have decent shade except 1 through 7 and 38 through 44. The dog park is very close to the campground and is huge! This should not be a concern to anyone without a dog as the park is far away not to be heard. But if you like to have a place for your dog to run, you will enjoy this proximity. There are also many trails for walking, running, and biking.

Our only impression about the campground is that it is unnecessarily "fussy." There can be no golf carts. There are only communal fire rings. No tents or canopies are allowed. Hosts are very specific about where you can park, how you must go past the hosts station each time you come and go, etc. We would not let this deter us from visiting the park or the campground. We just thought it was a bit silly.

Also in site 1 we did not have wi-fi because of the huge rig parked between us and the source. No big deal to us, but could be to others. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Winston-Salem is a great place to shop, enjoy restaurants, and look for cultural events. Reynolda Gardens and the Reynolda House are particularly worth a visit.

Rudds Creek Park COE, Boydton, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever visited. Each campsite is placed along the lakeside. We camped in site 80 on Loop 3. The campsites are some of the largest we have seen and are well spaced. All have some shade and most are very shaded. This loop has short trails that lead from each site to the lake so that you can tie your boat close to your site. Swim, kayak, and enjoy the lake directly from the site. If you need to stay at another loop, ask about this availability when you call to make reservations. There extra areas for parking around the loop so that if you have a boat trailer or extra cars, there is space available. We certainly plan to return to Rudd Creek Campground!

Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground, Yuma, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a Good Sam campground. We camped at Parker's Crossroads for 3 nights. We made reservations just a few days before our visit. We were disappointed that our site was in the middle of everything -- close to the bath house and camp office. Close to the front of the campground. Close to the camper next to us. Close to the road that led to other sites. There was no privacy at all. We had difficulty getting our drive-on levelers to work because of the loose gravel. The levelers kept slipping. That being said, the campground was quiet and very clean. There was a nice little deck next to our camper to give us a level place to sit. The people in the office were helpful and polite. There is a pool and a nice pond for fishing. If your idea of camping is having the amenities they offer and you do not mind the lack of privacy, you will be very satisfied. If you are hoping for a forest setting, some shade, some distance between the campsites, then ask for one of the few older sites here or visit another campground. We camped at Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Stream RV Park, Marion, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We camped on site 17, a Prime Stream with deck site. The prime sites with decks are not very wide, but they are deep and we loved our deck over the stream bed. We loved camping beside the stream and hearing the water. We would like to return to this park and be on a Prime Stream Super Site for a little more space and privacy. We camped on weeknights only and the park was quiet. The only possible complication at this park is that there is no cell phone service. The new owners are working hard to have internet, but did not have much luck with that. We enjoyed being off the grid, and there is phone service not far away in Marion. If you must have internet, ask if that service has improved. This park is under new management, but we found the new owners to be very helpful and eager for us to be satisfied. We look forward to returning to Mountain Stream RV Park in the future. We camped at Mountain Stream RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely campground on top of a hill with an incredible view! Some of the sites have a direct view of the scenic valley. Others sites are more wooded, but there is a place where everyone can go to view the killer sunsets! Campground was very nice. We will definitely visit again!

WoodSmoke Campground, Unicoi, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at WoodSmoke Campground on our first outing with our new travel trailer. There is a Walmart a few miles from the campground and we used our weekend as a time to get things we had not thought of for the new camper. There are also many small restaurants and shops in Unicoi and Erwin, TN, close by. The campground is a small family run facility. It is immaculately clean (Cleanest camp bathhouse we have ever seen in many years of camping!) and all sites have some degree of shade. There were a few seasonal campers, but most sites were open for rentals from short stayers like we were. The camp ground was nice and quiet. I-26 is less than a mile away, but there is very little truck traffic on that portion, so you don't notice traffic noise very much at all. We did hear train whistles two times and thought that was charming. The owners are very conscientious and helpful. Our only confusion was why they put us on a corner site with little privacy when there were several other more private, more heavily wooded sites available the whole time we were there. If we had it to do again I would ask ahead what sort of site we were renting and express a hope for privacy. But we were still happy and enjoyed our stay. We camped at WoodSmoke Campground in a Travel Trailer.
