Amazing! I have put over 9,000 miles on my Motorhome since December and the Charlottesville KOA is by far, my favorite of all the campgrounds I have stayed in. The owners are exceptionally nice... warm, real, down to earth, committed and caring. My grand kids fell in love with both the campground and the owners from the start. The restrooms are clean and well maintained and hot water is plentiful. Wi-Fi worked like a charm every time and I had excellent Sprint cell service. Sites are level and easy to maneuver in and out of. The campground is tucked away in a quiet area of rural Charlottesville. There's a pool, volleyball court, basketball court, tether ball, playground, game room, and laundry facilities (machines are reasonably priced and work well). Love the freshly blooming and ABUNDANT dogwoods and red buds. Sites are well maintained with really nice picnic tables and fire rings. Quaint little country store on-site and there's even an emergency pay phone for after hours. I have two hound dogs and the owners are exceptionally pet friendly which was an added plus. I love this campground and will stay here often and much!

Our main disappointment with this campground was the location. The surroundings were not the most reassuring. There was not much in the form of amenities, the playground was small and although a dog park was advertised, it was really just a rather small caged area. The night was peaceful enough. We did not try to use our cell phones or Wi-Fi during this stay as we had family activities to focus on. The site was level, but a tree did fall during the night and damaged my roof and ladder (not the campground's fault... it happens). All in all, the experience was okay, but we would not stay here again simply because there are other campgrounds in the area that we have stayed in before and enjoy more.

James Island County Park is our favorite place to spend New Year's Eve. Not only is the campground beyond beautiful, the staff are warm, friendly, caring, and always willing to go beyond the second mile to help. We love the Christmas light display and special New Year's Eve festivities that include a large sand sculpture, Christmas store, marshmallow roasting, Christmas cafe, train ride through the lights, amusement park rides, special displays, and fireworks display. We love staying at this campground in the summer as well as we thoroughly enjoy the water park. The campground itself is beautiful with breathtaking landscaping, a wonderful dog park, and nice, paved bicycle trails. The Wi-Fi signal is clear and doesn't seem to overload even when the campground is crowded, the restrooms are clean with abundant hot water, and during the summer they have special fun activities for the entire family. We really, really love this campground.

Despite the fact that this campground stays busy year around, it is the perfect place to unwind and find the serenity and peace you were hoping for. The park is beautiful and meticulously maintained. The staff are super, super nice and helpful... they make you feel like family. They have two little stores that are absolutely charming and my grand kids and I love to fish off of the pier. Cute little boardwalk that runs along the ocean is perfect for someone like me who does not get around so well by foot anymore. The sunsets and sunrises both never seem to disappoint.

This was the first campground that my grand kids and I ever stayed in after first buying our RV. All sites are level and the campground is meticulously well maintained. The prices were very reasonable. The surroundings are very pretty. The office staff were not very friendly, but the owner was exceptionally kind. The pool is small, but a welcome addition and the laundry facility was really, really small and quite hot & humid. The bath & shower facilities were older, but clean. We had a good Wi-Fi signal and a clear cell signal with Sprint. We would definitely stay here again. It was very quiet and the kids found lots of friends to play with during our stay.
