Shenandoah Hills Campground, Madison, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first of many future visits to this campground. We stayed in spot 30 of this hidden gem during the month of hot/steamy mid-July weather. The site is cozy with tree covered shade. We stayed at the end of "Pull-Through" road which allows for minimal traffic flow for the pull through spots and increased privacy. (All sites on this road are backed up to the woods without any additional campers.) Upon connecting the utilities, a large weather front (wind/rain) came through and within 10 mins my site's power dropped off, I gave it 15mins and called the front office to see if it was the whole campground or just me. They said it was just my site and sent out someone immediately. They had us up and running in 10 minutes! (Many thanks, guys! And I later discovered it was one of the owners!) When the weather cleared through, they reopened the pool. What a nice treat. We met up with some fellow campers looking for some humidity relief and completely enjoyed the pool. (I'm a little bummed that the pool closes at 7pm, but suspect it may be for liability issues). Still nice to enjoy while it was open. I had the opportunity to meet the owners. They are "down to earth" people that are looking to provide the best for their occupants. Bottom line, if you are looking to be a rebellious bunch that want to rock & party into the wee hours of the night, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for an enjoyable, relaxing environment to bring your smaller grandchildren to, or better yet, just bring your better half for a stress free time, this Is the place! Oh and I have to mention... CLEANEST bathroom I've seen in a long time! Dated, but CLEAN! Air conditioning, and to put things into a detailed perspective, BLUE water in the commodes if that tells you anything. We will go out of our way to come back to this place!!! We camped at Shenandoah Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of antiquing shops around the area. (Short Drive to the south) Vinny's Pizza has excellent food and portions. Blue Ridge Restaurant is also a gem of a place for good food. (Service is sometime hit/miss), but Chef Shawn comes out periodically to make sure that everyone is enjoying his food and is very open to comments/suggestions.

Bull Run Regional Park, Centreville, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has been a local "go-to" for us over the last few years of camping from our earlier days as tent campers through to the current travel trailer we now use. Do heed the cautions of other reviewers that not all sites are created equally, if you have specific requirements (i.e. power pole location, space for awnings)... ask the office. We have gone through the park and rated each spot for ourselves to determine which ones will accommodate our trailer. (Location of utilities, trees in the way, size of the spot, parking availability, etc.) It really comes in handy on future reservations as the online system doesn't really describe these limitations. We have experienced the staff here to be approachable, friendly, and extremely courteous. Check in after 1pm / Check out is 11am. Late checkout-$10 (if available) is 7pm. One can only request late checkout on morning of the last day after the staff verifies that the spot is not reserved online for that afternoon. (Note: This is a change in policy that used to allow for prepaying for late checkout at check-in time.) The trap/skeet range is active daily and is usually a bit louder on the "tent-only" side of the park. It is not unbearable, and only occurs during the daytime hours but worth mentioning if you are not used to hearing shotguns firing. This park has camping "hosts" that are staying right along with you. These hosts do a terrific job of clearing the sites that have been vacated in preparation for the next visitor. I've seen them rake back the leaves from the "living" area, thoroughly clean the BBQ grills, and ensure that no trace of trash is left behind for another guest to have to deal with. They are also really friendly to chat with and discover their "story". When we were using the shower/bathrooms in our tent days, we found them to be relatively clean. Two dump stations are available free for use if you are staying the night. We camped at Bull Run Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

A quick 15-20min trip to Manassas takes care of any shopping needs that may arise. "Camping World" just took over the old Reines RV in Manassas and has a fully stocked parts/accessory store for those "special, RV" type needs.
