Wilmington KOA, Wilmington, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

My son and I stayed here for a couple nights duing a recent lacrosse tournament in the area. My check-in experience was very good, as was all communications I had with the front desk staff. I needed a late checkout on our departure date, and the staff did all they could to ensure that I would be able to do so...much appreciated! Additionally, the gentleman who guided us to our site and helped me fill my propane tanks (while giving me an education on propane!) was very helpful! As for the campground...it was well laid out, but fairly tight. No problems extending the slide or maneuvering around, and it may have felt tight because the campground was pretty full, but compared to my only one other experience, this one felt a bit closer to my neighbors, not that it was a bad thing, as I met a couple great people during our stay! There is also not much in the way of shade for the RV sites, but the cabins and tent sites seemed to have some. I really appreciated the spring loaded sewer caps, and the hookups were well situated. The staff was very attentive, and I saw them multiple times picking up bags of trash from sites using their golf cart. Though we did not use the pool, it looked nice, and the laundry facilities were good to go. The store was well stocked and neat, and at night, things were very quiet...a great night's sleep. While this KOA lacked a few ammenities that we had at another campground (which is why it rates slightly lower on the value scale for me), it was a pleasant stay and I would return for another stay! We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be prepared to turn RIGHT out of the campground when you leave. HWY 17 is pretty busy through Wilmington and there is not a light at the entrance of the KOA. But you can easily get back to the freeway after turning right, so not a big deal.

Williamsburg KOA, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $89.00
Overall Rating:      

Our family choose to stay at the Williamsburg KOA for our first ever travel trailer camping experience, and overall it was a great one! We were placed at a site just inside the entrace of the Colonial side (there are actually two campgrounds at this KOA, Colonial and Williamsburg...Colonial is geared more towards the kiddos with jumping pillows and splash pad at the pool). The site ended up being perfect for us as it was close to the jumping pads, store, and a playground down the hill. All facilities we visited were clean and well kept (pool, game/activity room, jumping pads), and the nature trail was a nice touch as well (essentially a packed clay ATV trail with offshoot trails that made for good exploring). Campground was very peaceful on the upper Colonial side, with good shade from the trees and no road noise at all. While we did not go out into Williamsburg for the attractions, they are obviously close by, and if you want to go out to dinner one night, a quick drive offers some nice options. My only constructive comments for improvements are: the pool deck and splash pad were EXTREMELY slippery, along with the bottom of the pool. Recommend wearing shower shoes/flip-flops to improve traction, as those who did seemed to be having an easier time preventing falls! I also felt like the playground equipment was a bit lacking (swings and monkey bars). They have a great field that would be perfect space for investing in a large playground. While the bathrooms were clean (we only used the ones at the office), fixtures and countertops were in need of repair due to normal wear and tear water damage. Finally, the cash register system at the pool store (ice cream) gave the operator fits both times we went to the store. Perhaps a computer system update to a windows based program (versus DOS) could help with that? All in all, however, we had a GREAT time and a very successful first camping trip in our new trailer, and would definitely visit again! We camped at Williamsburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.
