Ashland / Huntington West KOA, Argillite, Kentucky

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

We stayed in a cabin for one night on our way to Indianapolis. The cabin was fine and located in the back of the campground. The staff was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. This campground is small and located behind a large cemetery so that's a bit odd. We camped at Ashland / Huntington West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Horse Cave KOA, Horse Cave, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $134.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in a cabin for 3 nights and the cabins are fine. The only problem was they were not cleaned well before we got there. Still had soap residue on the sink and dirty shower. The shower head barly put out any water so you had to hug the wall to get wet. The campground is located directly off interstate 65 so the road noise can be heard inside the cabin all night long. Get use to hearing big rigs using their jake brake to slow down to turn off at this exit for the Loves truck stop. We camped at Horse Cave KOA in a Cabin.

Sycamore Lodge, Jackson Springs, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We saw an ad for this campground in a publication and decided to take a drive to see the property. That drive was a 3 hour drive but we had other things to do along the way. When we got to the campground, we did the right thing and stop by the office to check to see if we could tour the property. The man at the front desk was clueless and was watching TV when we came in. All we wanted to do was tour the property to see if we would stay here. He called some sales associate to assist us. When she showed up, she was very rude and had a condescending attitude after we ask if we could tour the property. She said that we would have to make an appointment to see the property. I told her that we drove 3 hours to see the property and I didn't understand why we just couldn't drive around ( un-escorted ) to see everything. Most campgrounds don't mind that as long as you check in first. She wouldn't give us any prices or details about the property. I'm sensing some sales bait and switch tactics here where she gets paid on how many presentations she makes. That would explain why the first guy would not answer any of our questions either. There was no one at the gate so we drove on in to look around! Needless to say, I was not impressed with the staff and the property is OK. The sites are all gravel, very close to together and the roads are gravel with washed out ruts causing a lot of dust. The most important thing is the sites don't look very level and very few FHU sites. I think I remember only seeing 3 or 4 but they wouldn't give any map so I couldn't verify. We'll stick to campgrounds that don't do pressure sales and welcome guest to come and visit..... We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Luray, Luray, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $79.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second stay at this campground, but the first time was 16 years ago. We decided to come back with the kids and they've changed a lot in 16 years. We took advantage of the 7-NIGHT STARS 'N STRIPES SPECIAL package for July 4th week stay. We reserved site #183 (FHU) for our 35' travel trailer which is very convenient to all activities in the recreation center and water slide. The grounds are very clean and the staff is very nice to deal with.

We had one issue with the power pedestal breaker tripping with the A/C unit running when we first setup. I talked to the staff riding by on their golf cart and within 10 minutes they had me back in business. They didn't have another 30 AMP breaker on hand so they gave me an adapter to use with the 50AMP breaker. They also stopped by later to check on us to see if everything was working too. Nice to see that customer service is still alive these days!

The only bad thing was the WIFI throughout the park. The signal is low and speed matches dial-up, but that's not high on my list while camping. My kids rely on it more than me. We really enjoy visiting this area so we'll return for another stay. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Luray in a Travel Trailer.

Cherrystone Family Camping & RV Resort, Cape Charles, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stay at this campground. We got site #652 for 9 nights. The campground was completely full the first weekend which resulted in a crazy experience with unsupervised children flying around on their bikes at night with no lights on them. This is against the posted rules but no one enforces the rules. I was almost hit several times walking my dog when they come flying up behind you. They also fly up beside and in front moving vehicles so beware! Here's the bad first: the sites are grass covered ( no gravel ) with black dirt under it. When it rains, the water ponds everywhere and doesn't drain for days. Your site becomes a flooded black mushy mess with your tow vehicle sinking into the muck. We put out crab pots in the bay between the campground's piers at low tide and someone later goes out and moves our pots to a completely different spot, turning them over and took our crabs out. This happen twice on two spots. Another camper that I spoke got his crab pot stolen that same day. People need to leave things alone that don't belong to them! The good part: They pick up trash three times a day, the interior roads are mostly paved. The express check-in saved a lot time and effort when we arrived on a sold-out weekend. Otherwise, it would have been a 30 minute plus wait to check in. If you've never been here before, this place is huge so I wanted someone to escort us to our site. If you don't ask, you don't get one. They have a reasonably priced cafe and general store on site. We liked this campground but it was a bit pricey for what they offered. We camped at Cherrystone Family Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $114.00
Overall Rating:      

We booked 2 cabins at this KOA for our stopover at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The price for the cabins was a cheaper option then the hotels in Carlsbad, NM area. The cabins themselves were clean with a bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV, queen bed and a futon couch on the bottom of a bunk bed with twin on top. The staff was nice during check-in and escorted us to our cabins. The campground is directly off the highway 285 but it's located with nothing around it. It's 38 miles from Carlsbad Caverns National Park and 19 miles to Artesia, NM. The amenities at the campground were fine except for the small pool and WiFi which never did work. They close the office at 8 PM and close the pool at 7:30 PM so you need to use the pool before they close it. I can see the pool being a packed spot on a busy weekend. The campground has rabbits running around looking for food and it's fun to watch them but they do dart out in front of your vehicle so be on the lookout for them. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Cabin.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone at Gloucester Point , Hayes, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $71.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second stay at this Yogi Bear. The first time was when they were just switching over to a Yogi Bear campground so we thought we would give them another try since the first trip was not a favorable one. This time we got a pull-through on the back side of the common field area, which was site #30. The site was level in certain places and had some shade. The sewer, power, cable and water connections worked and located near the middle of the site. The sites are very close together. The only problem is this area does not drain well so if any small to moderate amount of rain comes, your site will flood with lots of standing water (up to your ankles). This was a holiday weekend so the park was full and they had lots of staff on hand. This site is directly located on the main back road so you get all the dust kicked up by all the vehicles and golf cart traffic. They have a speed limit for all vehicles including the golf carts but no one obeys it especially the staff members flying back and forth on their golf carts. Nothing is more frustrating then trying to eat a meal at your site with dust just covering you and your food with golf carts buzzing by you like worker bees. The price you pay for the site is way too high for the small overcrowded pool and basic park amenities. The park is filled with local folks that live on average 10 to 30 minutes away so they utilize the day pass option for fishing, crabbing and boat launch. The next time we come back to the area, we'll look for other campground options in Williamsburg or the Chesapeake Bay / Virginia Beach area. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone at Gloucester Point in a Travel Trailer.

Midway Campground Resort (formerly Statesville East I-40 Winston-Salem, Statesville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stay at this campground. We go somewhere close by every year on our annual Halloween camping trip and the kid's wanted to go to the campground's Wicked Woods. We decieded to try out this campground since it's no longer a KOA. We got a 50 AMP FHUs pull-thru site # 11. The site was not level and too close to trees to extend our awning. You have to be very careful pulling into the site because of a washed out ditch and the proximity of the cars parked on the road. You will bottom-0ut both your rig if you're not careful. They guide you to your site which was a good thing because they did not take the main gravel road to get to our site like I would have. The road has a very sharp turn and very difficult to make that turn with a longer rig. You have to drive across the grassy area at an angle to make the turn. You have to be very carefully pulling out because it has a sharp turn getting out of this site with a large ditch on the right-hand side and a guide wire for a power pole and a large tree on the left. The activities on Saturday consisted of a small costume contest at 2PM followed by trick-or-treat at 3PM. The main focus for the campground is the Wicked Woods since it's a huge draw for the general public. If you stay at the campground, you can show your receipt and you get a discount for everyone in your party to enter the Wicked Woods. That was very expensive for a family of 4 ( $62 ) but it was fun and my young kids enjoyed it. The pond has a fountain in the middle with catch and release fishing. The sites facing the pond have concrete patio pads but most of them are not suitable for rigs 27 foot or longer. There's a lot of permanent sites where the larger rigs would go. The campground was very easy to find and directly off I-40 at exit 162 ( HWY 64 ) and then immediately take the next left at the Shell station. With that proximity to I-40 comes road noise but it's not too bad. We camped at Midway Campground Resort (formerly Statesville East I-40 Winston-Salem in a Travel Trailer.

New Bern KOA, New Bern, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our first stay at this campground. We have a 35' travel trailer with slides and we had no problem navigating the campground roads. We stayed during Value Kard Weekend in site # 42 ( FHU ). This site has a concrete patio, table with chairs and an umbrella. The sites are plenty long for your rig and a tow vehicle. Our site was near the Neuse River side and the pier. The pier gives you access to the Neuse River for some fishing or boating. This campground is not a large one but very well kept. The campground is located directly off HWY 17 and a short drive from the HWY 70 interchange at the New Bern waterfront. The staff were very friendly and easy to deal with. Overall, we plan to come back. We camped at New Bern KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our first stay at this campground. We have a 35' travel trailer with slides and they only have a dozen sites for overnight guests. Keep in mind, this park rather large and has a lot of sites with all of them being permanent. Out of those few overnight sites, our rig could only fit in a few of them. They have overflow sites near the front gate which is in field with no shade would fit our camper along with the five sites on top of the hill also with no shade. The sites near the pool are really for smaller rigs except for the last three sites on the end of the row but the problem is it's very tight trying to do a 3-point turn backing into those sites which are at an angle. We got site B22 ( FHU ) which is located at the top of the hill and it's shaded. It's shared with B21 and both are pull-thrus. The campground is set up on a hill so the main road is steep so be prepared for that. The campground is gated with card access so that's nice for late night access. We camped here for 8 nights and took advantage of the Sunday thru Thursday special that included 2 pool passes. The pool is awesome with a rope, diving board, zero entry for the little ones and a slide. The overall campground is well kept, clean and very quite in the upper part. The sites next to the pool will be noisy since they play music all day long and the general noise from the pool play. The pool has a snack bar with hot food at affordable prices. The staff were very friendly and easy to deal with. Overall, we plan to come back. We camped at Homeplace Recreational Park Inc. in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Reidsville, Reidsville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

We made a reservations for a 4 night stay months ahead of the date and we paid for all 4 nights in full at the time of the reservation. We had to make a change in our venue while on the road so we called the park store to cancel our reservations. They require you to cancel your reservations 48 hours before your arrival date so we were well within that 48 hour window. They also require you to come to the store in Reidsville to sign a cancellation / refund request to be approved by two levels of city officials which can take upwards of 2 weeks ( if it gets approved ). They don't do refunds at the store or over the phone. Now, if I was local that would be fine and I would have no problem with that but I'm on the road and not even close to the park for a stopover. This policy seems to be strange in my opinion for transist visitors. The other problem is this is not spelled out on the website or we were not told this on the phone while we made our reservations. It would be nice if they clearly documented this on their website before anyone made reservations. I thought I would share my experience. We camped at Lake Reidsville in a Travel Trailer.

Zooland Family Campground, Asheboro, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 2nd stay at this campground. This time we requested a site with full hookups over the W/E sites in the bottom. We arrived on Thursday at 9PM for a 4-day stay but we tried to call the office but found out that it was closed at 5PM ( MON - THU ) so we could not confirm our site before arriving. We found our packet with a map in the black mailbox in front of the office showing how to get to our site (site #1). We have a 35 foot rig with 2 slides so the sites are really close to each other in this section. This site has shade trees and a grassy corner giving you more room in front of the camper. The WiFi is very spotty and the power will brown-out causing the A/C unit to cycle during peak times. My portable satellite dish had a clear view of the southern size with a good signal strength ( 98% ). My kids loved the jumping pillow, mini golf and the pool. From this site, I could watch them as they ride their bikes from one place to another and feel safe. They had a DJ on that Friday night at the lodge which was across from our site. We could sit outside and listen to the music. That was an added bonus. We like this campground since is very close to Seagrove and the NC Zoo.

Flintlock Campground, Boone, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first time camping for 4 days to do a little fall leaf watching. We got there at 6PM and was able to check in at the office. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. I wanted to use my satellite dish but tree canopy is very thick. But, they offer a free cable box. They put us in site # 49 which is on the creek with full hookups. I have a 30 foot RV, and with a little patience, I was able to get my rig into the back-in site. The site are a bit tight but this campground was built in 1970 when the rigs where a bit smaller. The sites are bit un-level so you’ll need some leveling blocks to make rig level. The WiFi is strong near the office but gets very weak as you move away from the office and non-existent at our site. The campground does have a very large green sign at the bottom of the hill on the right going down NC Hwy 105 at the entrance of the campground. It’s not hard to find but does take a trained eye to spot the road sign. NC Hwy 105 does have a lot of truck traffic so it's a bit tricky pulling out with your rig heading back toward Boone which is a left-hand turn on to NC Hwy 105. Yes, there's a bit of engine braking noise from the trucks but no different than a near by train with other campgrounds. The road down into the campground is a steep hill but slow down and you'll have no problems getting in or out of the campground. If you have time and you're heading toward Grandfather Mountain and/or Linville Falls which is a right-hand turn out of the campground, I would highly recommend that you visit Famous Louise's Rock House Restaurant located in Linville Falls directly off NC Hwy 221 S. We enjoyed the campground and we would come back! We camped at Flintlock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Richmond North / Kings Dominion KOA (formerly King's Dominion Campgrou, Doswell, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first time camping at the Kings Dominion Campground for a weekend stay. We got there at 7 PM and was able to check in at the office. I asked if they could switch us to a pull-through site since the web site had none available at the time I placed the reservation. They had a site open up which was a lower rate so they put us in site # 233. I have a 30 ft travel trailer and it was very easy to make the turns into our paved site on the first try. The spot was paved but sloped which put the front of rig downhill. That took a lot of leveling blocks to make bring the front-end up and level. The campground was laid out well with lots of trees for shade behind the office and some sites in a open field in the side nearest to the park. I have small kids so the pool at the campground was a nice treat. The odd thing was the rules at the pool. The life guards are very strict about kids wearing life vests, no goggles with a nose piece or other float toys. The Wi-Fi is strong near the office but gets weaker on the back-side of the park. The shuttle comes every 15 to 20 minutes to and from the park which is an added bonus of not having to pay $15 for parking and it drops you off at the front gate. During the day, you can hear the screams from the riders of the roller coasters and the fireworks at night. The campground is next to the train tracks through the trees which has scheduled trains coming through. We liked this campground since it very close to Kings Dominion and for the shuttle so it’s a good choice when visiting the park. With that in mind, I still think the prices of the sites are a bit high. We’ll be back with it comes time to come back to Kings Dominion for another visit.

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first time camping at the Boone KOA for Memorial Day weekend stay. We got there at 7 PM and was able to check in at the office. I asked if they could put us into a pull-through site that I could use my satellite dish. They put us in site # 6 at the far left-hand side of the campground with a clear view of the southern sky. I have a 30 ft travel trailer and it was was a tight squeeze down the crowed streets. My travel trailer just about bottomed out at the hitch trying to pull into the site. The spot was terraced with a grassy spot in front. This gave up a bit more room but most sites are tight with little room to park your tow vehicle. The sites are bit un-level so you’ll need some leveling blocks to make rig level. The small pool at the campground was a nice treat along with the mini golf. The Wi-Fi is strong near the office but gets very weak on the back-side of the park. The campground used to be a working farm back in the 70s so it’s not in town but back in the country. The campground does lack good signs pointing the way to the campground. It’s not hard to find but does take a trained eye to spot the road signs. We enjoyed the campground and we would come back but I think the site prices are bit high given the amenities. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.
