Excellent, first class service from the the staff, especially the managers. FHU, free WiFi, cable, waffle breakfast, and dog run. Only negatives, sites are fairly close together and some noise from I-95. In Richmond for doctors appointments and had to extend stay for follow-up appointment. They had no problem adding 3 days to our reservation. Will stay there again in October. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Plenty to see and do in Richmond. Civil war history, shopping, nice restaurants.

If you are a NASCAR fan this is the place to camp! Located within 200yds of I-95 we thought we were next to Richmond Raceway. The noise of the expressway, airplanes from a nearby airport, sirens, was almost too much to bear. Sitting outside at times you could not even hear each other talk.

We had just picked up a new 5th wheel across the way and were going to stay here a few nights to shake it down for problems. We had no problems we are happy to say.

Aside from the extreme noise the campground is very clean, easy to maneuver through, good staff, and many good amenities. Had I known in advance I would have asked for a site not so close to the expressway but, many of the good ones are occupied by seasonal units. Understandable.

Good place for one or two nights. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large rv park right on I-95 in Ashland which is basically a suburb north of Richmond. Because of its location, road noise was significant. However, because it was so hot we had to run the a.c. constantly so the highway noise didn't really bother us. The restrooms/showers were nice and clean and conveniently located. The sites were really tight and a little tricky to back into because of that. I would not consider this a destination park in itself, but it was conveniently located to Richmond, Fredericksburg and Colonial Williamsburg. Ashland is a nice-sized town with plenty of restaurants. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit Fredericksburg which is about 30 minutes north of Ashland. I only allotted one day which wasn't nearly enough. There is so much history there (both Civil War and Colonial) it just oozes it! Most of the historic homes and buildings are either free or for a nominal fee. Also, all the parking is free! The old downtown is charming. I saw (among other things) George Washington's mother's house and his sister's mansion (gorgeous ceilings).

This campground is very convenient to I-95. It's a great place to stay if touring the area: close to Richmond, Petersburg, Fredericksburg, and Williamsburg. We were traveling through, so we only stayed one night. The pull-thru site we stayed in was long and level. The night we were there they were having a Ladies' Night in the Rally Room. At check-in we were also told about free waffles for breakfast the next day. This is going down on our list of campgrounds to return to.

This park has two areas, one for short term visitors, and one for monthly people. Because we were staying in the Richmond area for a month, we opted for that. Our rate ($19/day) did not include electricity - like all of the long term sites, ours was metered, and the cost of electricity came to about $2/day (it was cold and we ran our electric heater a lot). On the plus side is the easy access to the region's historic places, a very friendly and helpful and cheerful staff, a very good RV store, waffles in the morning and excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. Trash is picked up at your site, and they pick up empty propane tanks and deliver them filled. On the negative side, the roads in the long term area are horrible, with LARGE holes in the dirt. It rained in March, and we lived in an endless sea of mud. We had noise from nearby I-95, and the pallet factory adjoining the RV park. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

See the state capitol, designed by Thomas Jefferson, and all the Civil War battlefields.

We stopped here for one night on our way back to Boston. Concrete pull through site was good size. After hours check in was easy. Small playground (couple swings and a slide) and a pool (closed seasonally). Free coffee in the office! Our site was loud, being so close to 95 we heard traffic and trucks all night, but that's to be expected. We will definitely stay here again as a stop over site when headed south.

We stayed at this park for two nights. We got a Vip spot so that we could get satellite. The spot was hard to level and we had a lot of road noise. This place is over priced and I would not stay here again. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

This campground was again our first stop on our trek south. The staff remains very friendly. While just off I-95, it is surprisingly quiet. The complementary waffle breakfast was a treat! We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Great park for an overnight or extended stay. Great base for exploring Richmond area. Many long level pull-thru sites. Most sites have good separation for each other. Easy access from I-95. Utilities, including Wifi, worked well. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Good location for visiting sites in Richmond, Williamsburg etc. Verizon and MiFi worked good. Sites were well spaced and level. Staff was very nice at checking in and showing us our site and even came back to see if all was OK. Offered us waffles in morning. We would stay there again.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the area. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 95. The interior roads were gravel. The sites were grave,l but bordered with old railroad ties making them very narrow. Some of the sites had a concrete patio with an outside table. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections were about mid way down the site but the fittings were not easy to connect. The sites were generally level. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance between the sites. The park had two separate areas. One that was covered by a tree canopy making satellite reception unlikely. The other one had a clear view of the southern sky so satellite reception was good. WiFi reception was good. There seem to be some long term residents but they were in another area. The designated fenced pet area was adequate. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park road and along the nearby public roads. There was a bag dispenser next to the fenced dog area to pick up waste. No dumpster available but there was site garbage collection. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Pretty nice park very convenient to I-95. Road noise not bad. Have stayed a number of times before when traveling up/down "95". Power in summer is marginal. This stay barely 110 volts with nothing turned on. Site B10 was pretty short for a 38' motor home towing. Usually ask for a back-in. There are a number of pretty nice restaurants in the area. This trip was a pretty long day for us and we just wanted to stop and sit. Interior roads very good, no real tight turns.

I don't give many parks a rating of 10, but this is one. Our site was shady, mostly level and sufficiently wide. Roads are sufficiently wide. Utilities all worked well, including (and this is a rarity) the Wi-Fi and cable. Very well equipped workout room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location for visiting Richmond, Kings Dominion, or just as an overnight stop (very convenient to I-95). We will definitely stay here again.

Our site was a pull-through with full hook-ups. This was our second stay at this park. Even though we find, in general, that KOA parks are way too expensive, this one is fairly reasonable. The staff is friendly, and we were even given a FREE waffle breakfast (and coffee), a first at a KOA. Cable TV was analog but had lots of channels to choose from. The Wi-Fi was quick and dependable. Trash is picked up directly from your campsite. The pet area was a bit removed from our campsite, but our dog enjoyed the walk. I-95 is just a stone's throw from the campground, so you have to leave your AC on or use some other means to block out that noise. We will come back again because we really like it here.
