Shenandoah Hills Campground, Madison, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Mixed feelings on this park. Nice, quiet surroundings. Staff was very friendly and polite. Nice camp store; pool and playground at the entrance are well kept but aging. Once inside the park, it is less appealing. We arrived on a rainy day, so lack of gravel at our site (#18) meant mud on tires, shoes, and paws. Interior road has rough spots and virtually all sites need gravel and yard work. Most disappointing was the appearance of several permanent RVs: dirty/aged exteriors, duct tape repairs, weeds, unkempt outside. Pull through sites are tight but manageable. Utilities (electric, water, sewer, cable) worked fine, though we needed our sewer extension. We did not use the wifi that was available for an additional charge; our AT&T hotspot worked fine. Nature trail is nice. Best sites are 47-59; they have more room and seem better kept. Despite the negatives, this is probably the best RV park option in the area. We camped at Shenandoah Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Food Lion is close by. Greene Hills Golf Club is a short drive away (excellent condition, greens fees $59 with cart). Bald Top Brewery is very nice/scenic; Beerhound Brewery in Culpeper was exceptional. Highly regarded Bavarian Chef restaurant is a few miles away.

Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA, Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park; well run, well maintained, nice dog park, very nice staff. We stayed in site 28 on the lake--utilities worked fine, very good water pressure. The lake sites are close and short, requires parking your tow vehicle/toad along side. This would be fine but if the sites sites across the street are occupied (90-98), it makes for very tight quarters. Sites 107-111 and 52-63 are nice, but appear to be mostly seasonal residents. The overlook site has a nice view. Site 33 is the best site on the lake; 88 and 64-80 are nice as well. Lots of non-full hookup options. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We enjoyed golf at The Club at Ironwood; lots of contour, very challenging greens and reasonable prices (~$30 with cart). Many local microbreweries--Blue Mountain has great views, food, and beer; Wild Wolf and Redbeard had the best India Pale Ales. Staunton has a very nice downtown.

Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

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

A very nice park.....but bring your chock blocks and at least one foot of leveling blocks. The park map does not show contour, but sites 24-37 all have a significant slope from front to rear. Our trailer tongue was on the ground to achieve level--but ultimately was level (site 26). Sites 1-16 and 38-44 are more level and 1-9 are probably the best sites. Also, all hookups are in the rear of the sites, so if you have midship sewer, you'll likely need an extension. All that said, there is a lot to like here: paved roads and sites, full hookups with cable and wifi (strong signal with a full park), and lots of activities in the park. These include a two mile paved hiking/biking trail, horse trails, tennis courts, pool, two golf courses, farmer's market, and an enormous dog park. Once you're in and level, you'll most certainly enjoy your stay. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The Tanglewood Park championship golf course is a tremendous layout, 7000+ yards, and in reasonable condition, a bargain at $41 with cart. Foothills Brewing is 8 miles away with a superb selection of craft beer. The dog park is walking distance from the RV park. Plenty of shopping nearby.

Willow Tree Resort and Campground, Longs, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $61.00
Overall Rating:      

Hard not to love this place; perhaps the nicest park we have stayed in. Incredibly spacious, well laid out, and meticulously well kept. The walk around the lake is very nice, as are the facilities. The office has a good selection of RV supplies. Park Wifi worked well, though the park was not crowded (no competition for bandwidth). The park 30 amp circuit breaker tripped when running the AC and the microwave; a first for our RV. It was a hot August afternoon, but it may be the park circuit breaker was weak--we will let the hosts know. Also of note, the premium sites no longer offer private hot tubs on site. All that said, this is a wonderful park, all the positive reviews are absolutely correct. We camped at Willow Tree Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Long Bay Golf Course and Aberdeen Country Club are two local golf courses. Both are nice; Long Bay is longer (7000+ yards) and more challenging. The Brentwood Restaurant and Wine Bistro in Little River (20 min drive) is an excellent French Restaurant.

Myrtle Beach KOA, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice park, but not a great fit for us. If you have young children and want to be close to the beach, then it may be good for you. The positives: very well staffed and all we encountered were cordial, polite, and customer oriented. The park was generally clean and facilities were in good repair. All utilities, Wi-Fi, cable worked well. It is close to shopping and restaurants of all kinds. It is also about five blocks from the beach and the staff runs shuttles back and forth. The KOA store is well stocked with more RV items than is typical. Nice pool and a "big bouncer" (very popular with young children). The negatives: there is city and road noise (not unexpected given the proximity to the beach). The park stores RVs, many of which are dispersed throughout the park, detracting from the appearance and ambiance of the park. Most sites are fairly close, with little room for additional vehicles. Seasonal/permanent residents next to the premium sites were disappointing. Overall, a decent park, but I think we can find something better suited for us. We camped at Myrtle Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Hard not to like this campground. Beautifully maintained and everything works as it should. We stayed in site 32 (the best $55 site) with a beautiful view and plenty of space between sites. As this campground is on the side of a mountain, the roads are steep, but paved roads make the trek uphill manageable. Laundry has ample washers and dryers with change and detergent/softener machines on site. Bathhouse was clean and well maintained. Wifi is powerful. Premium sites ($70) Also have decks, however sites 35, 36, and 37 have better views than sites 33 & 34 (views have electrical wires). We saw wild turkeys every day. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The nearby town of Black Mointain has lots of nice shops and restaraunts without the parking challenges in Asheville. The Asheville Farmer's Market has an incredible array of fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and meats along with lots of crafts and snacks. Worth a trip during your stay.

Endless Caverns Resort, New Market, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice campground with a variety of sites and settings. We paid $46 per night, including their "cancellation assurance" option. It is hilly, which makes for a somewhat eclectic set up, but gives it some charm as well. Roads and sites are gravel, but was not an issue for our 34 foot travel trailer and two wheel drive truck. A few sites will need some leveling adjustments, but our site (E45) was perfectly level. Sites are generally spacious; the higher up the mountain, the more spacious they seem to be--though section B is generally lower, flatter, and spacious as well. Utilities worked fine, though the wifi was slow so we used an AT&T hotspot without issue. No cable and we didn't attempt antenna TV reception, though there were several rigs with portable satellite dishes out. Apple TV through our hotspot worked fine. Bathhouses were clean and newly refurbished, washers/dryers were available at $1.50 each, though we didn't use them. We enjoyed two local golf courses: Shenvalee (very nice course, beautifully maintained, $43) and Packsaddle (challenging layout, but maintenance lacking, $46). New market has a number of shops and a small grocery. Harrisonburg has all the main chain stores as well as two microbreweries. We would stay here again. We camped at Endless Caverns Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground , Roanoke, West Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice campground. $46 rate includes taxes. Paved level spots, great views, full hookups, fire rings. No cable or antenna/air TV. Several satellite TVs were in operation in the park and should work from most sites. Three different Wi-Fi systems to connect to, but none were particularly strong from our spot (#38). Verizon and AT&T cellphone service worked fine. The park has numerous hiking trails, fishing and boating, and an Arnold Palmer signature golf course (a superb course, well maintained and well staffed). There is a lodge with a spa, gift shop, dining, and a complimentary boat ride, though we did not use these. Rental boats, kayaks, canoes, and bicycles are available for $15 daily fee per family. Not much shopping nearby, but a WalMart and a Shop and Save grocery store in Weston. A Super WalMart is in Buckhannon, about an additional 10 miles away. Beautiful mountain scenery all around; campground is on a peninsula on a lake. You must make a reservation well in advance, so plan ahead. We camped at Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia

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

We stayed at Camp Burson; a very nice park. The office has a small store with camping and fishing supplies and snacks. Our site (#22) was a paved pull-through, shaded, and fairly level. Most sites appear level and most with ample room between sites. Some of the back-in sites are too short for longer RVs. Good water pressure. Park Wi-Fi would not connect our first night, and was spotty for the remainder of our four day stay. Verizon service worked well for our hotspot; AT&T cellphone was weaker, but worked. No cable, but we picked up about 4 TV stations over the air; Fox was the only major network. We did not try satellite, but saw one rig with a dish out, so I believe it would work. Bathhouse is in good condition, was clean, and had two washers and two dryers at $1.50 each. Lots of families and children on the campground, but none were loud or unruly. Hungry Mother Park has excellent trails, swimming, boating and fishing--all either on site or a short drive away. We played golf at the local Holston Hills golf course-- nicely maintained, not crowded, and $34 per person with cart. We also visited a local distillery--very small one person operation. Downtown Marion has nice shopping and a few restaurants. We camped at Hungry Mother State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campfire Lodgings, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent park in every respect: beautiful views, level sties, immaculate grounds, strong Wi-Fi, and friendly staff (especially Jason). Mountain views include the French Broad River and a distant model airplane airport where you can watch the planes maneuver (but too far away for noise). There is even a freight train in the distance adding to the evening ambiance. Bathrooms are clean, but not air conditioned. Nice laundry room with two coin operated washers and dryers ($1.50 each). Premium sites 1-7 have beautiful sunset views, but are in the sun all day. We were in premium site 8 that had both views and shade. Drive up the hill is tight but not difficult. Take your awnings down if leaving for the day as high winds during an afternoon thunderstorm damaged out neighbor's awning. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.
