This campground is nearly impossible to reach in a large (40') motor home, especially if towing. Making the right turn from the main road onto the side road leading to the campground is impossible without dragging your car over the curb. We will definitely need at least an alignment if not more work done on our car after that turn. The site we were given was tight. Office personnel was pleasant but that couldn't outweigh the difficulty getting to the park, tight sites, and difficulty leaving the park. We will NOT stop here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for 2 weeks in our motor home. The train noise didn't cause us any problems...wasn't that frequent and never disturbed our sleep. We had no noise from other campers (as mentioned in another review) other than what one would normally expect in a campground. Site was level. Campground and our site were both easy to get in and out of. Office personnel was very accommodating. We'll definitely stay here whenever we visit our daughter at Fort Bening.

Date of Stay:

It was difficult navigating the narrow, tree-lined roads in our 42' motor home towing our car. If there were a better choice in the neighborhood we would stop there, but this is it for that area. It is fairly easy to reach from I-65. Noise was not a problem.

Date of Stay:

We were given what was called their "summer rate" which was less than the $40 Good Sam rate. The campground was fairly empty when we arrived early but got fuller as the day went by. We had no problems getting in and out of our pull-through site in our 42' motorhome with our toad attached. There were some pot holes but we've seen worse. The office ladies were very nice and even gave us a baggie with two homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Date of Stay:

April and May reviews stated a cost of $30 but we were charged $35. Otherwise, the campground is as stated in previous reviews. Sites are concrete and easy to get into and out of. Campground was nearly full. I strongly recommend making a reservation ahead of time if you want to stay in this campground. It is a convenient stop when traveling on Hwy 59.

Date of Stay:

The few trailers parked here were very shabby and looked long-term. The adjacent playground for children looked OK. It seemed like a lot of money for such a shabby dirt/gravel parking spot with broken, uneven blacktop pavement going into and out of this small park. There are 5 pull-through spots. Nearby train was very loud. This was not a pleasant stop even though it was just over-night.

Date of Stay:

We had to pay extra because it was Labor Day weekend so it seemed expensive for a grass site that was right on top of the sites to either side of us. There were lots of families but quiet hours were observed well in our section of the campground. The gravel/dirt road was very dusty.

Date of Stay:

All the trees had me worried about getting into and out of this park in our 42' motorhome, but it was no problem because the trees were all trimmed up high enough not to bother our rig. Our site was roomy, shaded, and had woods nearly all around so more privacy than most campgrounds. The Shooting Center has been mentioned before, but bears repeating. We were away visiting relatives most of the time, but if we had been sitting outside we would've felt like we were in a war zone. Planes from Dulles flew overhead intermittently during the times we were actually in the campground. Every campground has its pluses and minuses--noise is the minus here but the up side is so good we'll stay here again for sure!

We arrived on a Sunday night for an overnight stop on I-81. We didn't like the high price, but it was as far as we wanted to go that day. Our experience was much better than the previous reviewer's. There were many empty spots (week-end visitors had left) which may have accounted for the improved noise level all around. The gas golf carts were indeed noisy, but it was not a constant annoyance. Heard no dogs barking. Had no rig on one side and the other side's occupants were quiet. Yes, the entry was a little tight, but not as bad as some we've encountered and the trees were trimmed high enough not to scratch our coach. We navigated it fine in our 42' motorhome towing our car which made us 60' total. Our space in the 700 row was large and level. It's a destination park designed for children with lots of activities for them. When I had made the reservation, I was at first told there was a minimum 2-night stay. When I explained we were just stopping on our way north, she said they make an exception for travelers on their way elsewhere.

You drive through the countryside a little ways but are circling back towards the highway, which you can see and hear from the campground. The traffic noise isn't enough to keep you awake at night, though. Long-term residents' pickup trucks leaving for work in the early morning might wake a light sleeper. Sites are large, easy to get in and out of, no tree problems, and level enough with the aid of our jacks. No Wi-Fi at our site or cable. Fine for an overnight stay.

Date of Stay:

Our site was level and easy to get in and out of. The roads are gravel so fairly clean but with a few minor pot holes. The young man in the office was pleasant. It was quiet at night, but the next morning (a Monday), we could hear pick-up trucks from the long-term residents in the park leaving for work starting at 5 AM. We paid $35 cash. Credit card was $40. Wi-Fi was particularly good.

Date of Stay:

We were over-nighting while heading north on US 59. This park is about 5 miles off that road but worth the drive. No, it's not fancy, nor is it what I'd call a "resort". But it was quiet, the sites were level, the WiFi worked fine for us, and it was an easy in, easy out park. We paid $27.50 with our Escapees discount. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is a simple park but provided a quiet night's rest at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy, but good for an overnight stay when traveling I-10.

Date of Stay:

I had read the previous reviews on Ivy's Cove. When the planes and helicopters started flying low over our heads, sounding like they would land on the roof, I couldn't believe nobody had mentioned that in their reviews! This went on until midnight when we finally got to sleep. It started again at 6 AM. Other than that, it was a fine campground.

Date of Stay:

This is a simple campground but has everything you need and a very nice lady in the office who will show you right to your site. The price is right, the campground was pretty quiet since it is away from the interstate (but not too far), and it made a good overnight stop.
