We were a bit worried about our stay at Hidden Acres / Bowling Green KOA from reading the previous reviews of the campground. By the way this is not a KOA. It was at one time but all of the KOA signs had the KOA logo removed. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the daughter of the owners of the campground. She was very nice and polite. She told us where our site was and handed us a map of the campground and an activities schedule for the weekend. We proceeded to our site and found a level, wooded site. Upon setup we discover minor inconveniences such as the knob on the water hookup was broken so I had to get a pair of pliers to turn on the water, and I had to modify my sewer hose to a short 2' length because the hook up was 8 inches above the ground. I just shortened my hose to go from the camper directly into the sewer hookup without laying on the ground. Once we were setup and starting to relax the owners son came over to make sure we were hooked up and if we had any issues. I was impressed by his concern and hospitality. We enjoyed the wooded and relaxed atmosphere or the campground. We were able to take the kids fishing in the pond that was about a 3 minute walk from the site. It was loaded with sunfish, bluegill, and catfish. There were even a couple snapping turtles. The playground was dated but was safe for the kids to play on. The pool and hot tub with clean and well attended to. There is a small mini golf course setup by the camp store. It wasn't the greatest mini golf setup but it was free and the kids enjoyed it. Trash was picked up at our site several times a day. Throughout the weekend they had planned several activities for the kids and adults, such has treasure hunts, ice cream socials, fire works display,and a hot dog social. We had a group of people with us that had some other campsites that were not as level as ours and/or had less room to hang outside the camper. Some of the tent sites were not very level, but the tent campers were able to make due. Overall we enjoyed our weekend and Hidden Acres, Bowling Green, Va. The setting was relaxing and amenities were sufficient. We would stay here again.

There are a lot of permanent residents at this park. Some of the permanent RV's were very unsightly with their accumulating belongings around their sites. They have an average playground for the kids, a fishing pond which we caught nothing in, and a pool. For the price we paid I feel that there should be more amenities and conveniences. We had friends in a tent as well and they were charged $5.00 less than us with a full hookup.
