This campground is all about location, location, location! Easy access to downtown DC via public transportation. The sites are decent, although they really pack you in! They have nice pools for the kids as well as a hot tub. The camp store is decent sized, and they have on site RV service and even dog walkers (for when you're in the city)! The only thing I have negative to say is the proximity to the expressway, if you are OK with the hum of traffic, this place will suit you fine...as for everyone else, it's a small price to pay for the great location and numerous amenities.

If you enjoy the TV show "Big Brother," this is the campground for you! The lady running the place is keeping an eye on you from the moment you step foot on the campground. I should have known something was up when the owner called me a week out asking if I would send a check instead of using credit card because she didn't want to pay the card fee. When we arrived, we realized three nights was probably a bit much for this resort...Don't get me wrong, Luray Caverns and the mountain views were wonderful, but I could have enjoyed those camping at the Walmart parking lot. The campground is basically a grassy field with gravel sites, our site was fairly level and easily accommodated my 43 foot DP. I saw other sites where the gravel could not support the RVs and many wood blocks were needed to make things level. There is a big grassy courtyard that half the park opens up to, at first this seems nice, but soon you realize this is the breeding ground of a variety of insects that at night come to life and swarm anything with light. The other purpose of this lot is for the management to walk around checking for any unpaid visitors or guests. The management seems to be a little predjudice toward big rigs, if you have a tent full of people she tends to waive the $6 per person visitor fee, but if "you can afford an RV," look out, she'll try to nickel and dime you to death! And if you booked three nights and decide only two are needed to see the caverns and city, don't bother asking them to shorten your reservation, she's likely to start ranting and raving in incomprehensible English in 10 minute intervals...then, just when you think she's done and walking away, she'll turn around and rant some more, to the point you want to run into your RV and lock the door. I especially pity the family next door, they had about 6 kids ($3-$6 each in addition to $47 a night)...The manager was watching those kids like a hawk. I don't know about you, but when I camp I like to be a little carefree. If you decide to stay here, be sure to check your receipt and be sure to draw your blinds...as the management will be watching!

Amazing resort, very selective in terms of RVs allowed...only top of the line. The clubhouse in cozy, the lots are wonderful (large, level, concrete pads), and beautifully landscaped. The golf course was cute, a nice place to practice (9 holes, all 3 par). I really enjoyed myself. The owners were extremely nice.
