The river was beautiful. Mike was great. Staff was friendly. The tubing was AWESOME. The campsites were the biggest I've ever seen. Nice, wide, more than enough room. We arrived on a Thursday and left on Sunday and also had some tent people meeting us there. For us, the stay was nice. For the tent people not so great due to the bath houses being completely disgusting. You also have to bring quarters with you to use the showers which the website doesn't disclose. A certain nationality of people showed up Friday night, by the hundreds. Things went downhill from there. They were loud, dirty and I think the bath house situation was because of them. They played loud music, left their trash everywhere, sped through the campground. Border patrol was all over the place and cops frequented the campsite over the weekend. On Sunday, they all packed up and left. They left garbage EVERYWHERE. I felt so bad for the owners to have to clean up such a mess. This is such a beautiful place to camp. I hope the owners can figure out a way to deter the illegals (I'm assuming illegal with so much border patrol officers around). - Leslie C.

Don't trust these people, this used to be a great campground that our group stayed at for several years in a row. USED to be friendly and worked well with us. We always came with a group of 20-100 people. Then things started going downhill. A bad element of people started coming in, in spite of complaints by us for a couple of years in a row of campers from other sites/groups coming into our reserved areas disrupting our functions and items coming up missing nothing was done by management to curb it. Although management lives right across the road, once they are gone for the day that's it, you're on your own. The last straw was when we made our usual reservation at our usual group rate, something happened and the lady that used to handle our reservations was no longer there. ONE WEEK prior to our event we were told that neither the space we had reserved nor the rate we were promised would be honored. They doubled the price, we did get our space back, but not without a lot of hassle. This same thing happened to another sister group earlier. We won't be back. - luvmyhp

I read the reviews here, and decided to take a chance. Here's what we found: This park is relatively far from a main route. Getting there requires navigating a windy, hilly road for a few miles from RT 340. We had no trouble, but this campground is not close enough to I-81 to be useful to folks moving through. We arrived after dark to find the gate manned. We paid and were told to pick a site. Because it was dark, it was very hard to see where the sites were. Even during the day, it is hard to see where the sites are. Some of the marked sites have broken electric. We set up and found it was difficult to level the RV, given the sloping nature of the grass. If you plan on staying here, you should know that the sites along the river are nice, but lack electricity and tend to attract noisy groups. There was no effort to quiet down the loud music on Friday night. Bottom Line: This is a chill-out park that would be great for a few days in an RV. This is not the best park for thru-travelers due to the distance from the main roads. There are no facilities other than a dump station and water/electric. - outsid4evr

Nice park but lots of noise from the highway.
One thing we didn't like was they charged anyone who visited even if not using amenities. This place was on the pricey side. It was easy to get into and out off and sites were pretty level. We would stay here again but not in the sites near the highway. - hug448844

This is a highway campground basically for those passing through that need a place to plug in for the night. Loud highway traffic constant and loud. Clean, nice pool, paved roads. We were put in what they call a premium pull through that was on gravel( 57 bucks for a gravel premium site) I have trouble paying this much per night but when you got to stop for the night you have to pay. - Ed D

The basics of this cg are really nice. We had an excellent, 50 amp, FHU, pull-thru site with a concrete slab. There was a large concrete patio with a grill and patio furniture. We were on the end so no neighbors on one side with a small yard. Site had some shade. There are a lot of shaded sites here - some are pull-thru and some are back-in. Check in was easy and friendly with an escort to site. We had some noise from road, but wasn't heard inside the RV. Some sites are closer to the road with louder noise. Now, the negative...We couldn't get cable at our site. There was a sign in the office that they don't guarantee cable reception at every site. When I come expecting cable as advertised, I expect cable. We were able to get some OTA channels. The WiFi is Tengointernet. The free basic says it's slower than the upgraded that you pay for, so I chose to pay $3.95 for 24 hrs as I hate slow WiFi. It was okay for the most part. When my time ran out, I tried the free basic, and it was faster and better than the "upgraded" I paid for. Go figure. We would stay here again and make sure we get a cable site. - Gayle E.

If you want playgrounds and swimming pools, this is not the place. If you are looking for a great spot to call "base" and use your time visiting the many historic places nearby, then this is a fine campground. Great freeway access, close to level spots, plenty of room to move around, not stacked with your neighbors slide-out almost touching your patio awning. Plenty of shopping nearby. restaurants, Harpers Ferry, even a casino. Good water, electric, and sewer. Just no "amusements". - scooterrooter

This is a no frills campground. The sites are reasonably level and have water, electric, and sewer hook-ups. The water pressure is it great. There is no bathhouse... No toilets or showers. Most sites do not have a picnic table. There are no trees/shade near the sites. The campground is located just off a main highway, so there is some road noise, but it's not too bad. Overall, the campground is reasonably clean and well kept, but there are some junky areas. For the price, this campground isn't bad, but don't expect much more than a place to park & hookup. - wanderfilledlife

This is a very utilitarian campground. The owner (a former UK citizen) inherited the farm from her grandfather and turned it into a campground. Campsites are very spacious. Hookups (30 amp, water, and sewer) worked well although the water pressure was very low. There is no wifi and cell phone didn't work in the site either. There are no amenities here. This site is convenient to all the major attractions in the area. - Melodycthomas

An older KOA, it's in need of site improvements. Some are OK, some are terrible. We had a three night stay in a nearly empty park and was assigned a lousy site when there when numerous sites in better condition available. The site was not level from front to rear and side to side. Dirt was the main site surface and gravel had not been added in a very long time. Mature trees also had exposed roots throughout many sites making walking difficult. Ask to see your site BEFORE accepting. - Finder9

Book 2 nights get 3rd night free deal by calling on phone only. Rate can be tricky because they have so many fees for people and dogs, and rates/deals by phone are different than online, some rates do not allow KOA discount. Every person and every dog wears a paid paper band. Our site was level but most sites are unlevel and almost impossible to get to for big rigs. Do not try to pull through our site, even though pull through site, it is much easier to back in. Do not arrive at night, interior roads super hard and unlevel to navigate. Wifi actually worked most of the time, speed was good, it took awhile for iPad to lock onto signal though. Att wireless signal 1 or 2 bars. Trash in fire pits and on campsites. Pay $20 extra to pick site, bundle of wood, and elastic picnic table cover. Otherwise they pick your site number. - univmd

-close to Harpers Ferry National Park.
-roads leading to park easy to navigate.
-they give you free pancakes in the morning. Since we are gluten free, this wasn't worth it.
-$10 resort fee NOT mentioned when reserving by phone
-This is not a "resort" facility.
-This place charges for a pet - the first place this entire summer to do so.
-internal roadways are too narrow. We saw a trailer trying to get to their site and they literally couldn't make one of the turns.
-they give you a coupon book for discounts at their own facility. Why not just lower the price??
-one coupon was for fudge - buy a pound, get 1/2 pound free. Since we were visiting daughter the next day for a week, we figured we would get some fudge to have for dessert several nights while we saw her. Went to the "coffee shop" to purchase some. All they had was a 1/4 pound of raspberry fudge. When will it be available? "Whenever the person who makes it brings it in."
-sites are DIRT! Most places that charge more than $50 per night have grass, cement, level sites, etc.
-Did I Mention A $10 Resort Fee?? Your KOA discount doesn't apply to this. - Ms Winnie

This is a very plain Jane park with only a few sites that all back to the river. Pads are gravel, barely. We arrived in the early afternoon to find no one at the office. We asked someone that was a seasonal camper and he had no idea what we should do. The signage said to call a number and not to pull into a site. We called and two hours later still no return call. We went ahead and picked a site, anyway. Finally someone, not the manager, came by and took our payment although we could not use our credit card as was stated on the web site. The water was also very brown even after running the water for a minute after hooking up. We only stayed overnight although we had planned on a 3 night stay. - HRambler

Maybe just the first 6 sites have 50amp service. The rest are 30amp with some sewer hookups. All have water and all back up on a bank on the Shenandoah River. There is a boat ramp and apparently deep water with a little current that had me concerned about launching a kayak. We had to use 2x6's under the front tires to level and the soft ground absorbed about half of the boards under the jacks of our diesel pusher. The WiFi was strong and fairly fast. About half the sites seem to be seasonal. - Juandering

This campground is off Rt. 66, and there are signs on the highway and off to direct you. We've stayed here twice for a night. It is basically a large grassy area with a line of sites on the Shenandoah River and treed. There is a boat ramp and fishing in the river. Very peaceful and clean. Picnic tables and fire rings. You pick your spot and the owner comes around in the AM for payment. Seem to be some seasonals, but lots of sites available. - poodlecamper

We booked this park through Coast to Coast, had never been here before, and didn't know what to expect. I thought it was funny that we didn't have to check-in at an office, the gate guard handled everything, and sent us to our site. To our surprise, our site was one of the premier sites in the park, backed up to the river, at the end of the row, so out our door was a large grassy area and trees with a pretty wooden fence. Gorgeous! That said, the site was gravel and narrow, but hubby backed right into place. Our site was nearly level so no problems with the auto leveler. The trailer to our left was fairly close, but have been in parks where they are closer, so not too bad. - overogal

Site was very difficult to level our RV. Site is narrow. Can use either awning or firepit, but not both. Parking for towed is iffy at site. Roads in C level are gravel and gullied. Internet is not reliable and you must pay for code. - Jeanne C
May 2016 - $10.00
The price reflects a Coast to Coast membership. We stayed here two nights. We did not use any of the park facilities and only checked in at the guard gate so we had no dealings with the staff other than the security guard who was very organized, friendly and helpful. Park was clean, roads were good, and location was convenient for us. Satellite and Verizon phone worked good here. - RayN

We were the only campers in this gem overnight stay. The campsites are in a huge grassy field with water and electricity hook-ups. Dump and dumpster at the entrance. We spent part of our evening under a covered patio type protection attached to a huge old (1800) barn, because of a tornado alert and then a thunderstorm alert. We were able to pull our Class B RV in under shelter in case of hail (there was none, but a huge rain).
The showers have plush carpets in front of the stalls. Spotless washrooms. And the campground is on a creek. - skidiver

This is a very hard campground to rate. It is very rustic and beautiful, however the interior roads are minimal and the majority of the sites are grass only, without any stone. We were concerned that we would not be able to get our motor home out without getting stuck if it rained. They have three full hookups sites that are basically in a circle with PVC pipe cobbled together to one sewer hole. On the up side, the water pressure was good and the 50 amp electric reliable. The owners were friendly and helpful. We were visiting friends who live in the area and this was the closest option near their home. Due to the size and weight of our 40 foot motor home, we would probably try another campground further away if visiting the area again. - D&K

Not close to the highway and only 3 sites had sewer. No 50 amp service (30 amp only). However, clean restrooms and showers, nice views and beautiful property. Would have loved to do more than an overnight. Would stay here again - next time for a couple of days. - bbnh2000

No one answered the phone and no sign of owners or management, but did speak to a cleaning lady who couldn't assist In any way. Roads rutted, causing tow vehicle to drag. Had to drive over fire pit to get into/out of site. Lots of long term campers in the park. Has LOTS so potential but looks like owners may have given up. Don't know how it's rating manages to be so high. But! Convenient to I-81 for overnighting on the north-south migration route. Smaller rigs would be much happier here. We are 65' with tow vehicle. - VRoss716

This is a very basic campground. It may be a little over-priced for what you get, but this is a very expensive area. The owner is working hard to make it a success. While it is convenient for an I-81 stop-over, there are too many permanent residents and leveling is almost impossible. - larriin

This is one of those parks that could be a real gem if it wasn't full of full-timers with rundown trailers and barking dogs. There are new managers recently as of september, and they are working to clean the place up. Very friendly folks. The area isn't a vacation destination, so I imagine that parks in this area have to allow full-timers in order to make a living. However, having some rules in place and enforcing them would make things better. Pros: Close to main highway, good water pressure, long spots with plenty of room on the sides, pretty creek running through park. Cons: Busy road right next to park, full-timers with rundown trailers and barking dogs, our power surge protector was constantly flashing red letting us know that the power source wasn't steady, dirt spots and very muddy due to recent rain. I think the new managers are on the right track with this campground, but I don't know if they plan on cleaning up the clientele of the park at all. It worked for a couple nights stay so we could go into DC for a day. - Salina

I wasn't sure what to expect when I made a 2 night reservation at The Cove. I had read mixed reviews And my nephew and my girlfriend, who both accompanied me on this trip, were not that impressed. However, I saw a diamond in the rough here. Below are my pros and cons:
Pros- Sportsman's Paradise. If you shoot, fish, ATV, hike, jeep or snow tube, this place is for you. Pristine settings between 2 mountain ranges with crystal clear lakes and ponds. Close to Tuscarora/Great Eastern Trail.
Cons- Our site wasn't quite level. The water spigots are shared. The entrance road is not for the faint of heart or those who are very fussy about their vehicle.
So being an outdoorsman I really liked this campground and may return some day. - User3064

Our favorite park by far. In the mountains, out of the way and "rustic". Staff are very friendly and helpful and not there to deny anyone a good time that aren't bothering others. We stayed TWICE this summer! - Jdawg and G unit

The last campground was not our style, so we sacrificed $50 and called around. The Cove had a lakeside rustic cabin for $95 plus taxes per night. So we drove the 15 miles to the Cove. The last 2-3 miles of which is dirt/ gravel, rough roads. Once we saw the lakes and mountains, my 15 year old son and I loved it. My wife was sketchy about the rural nature, as we had gone from the extremes of a campground next to the highway, to out in the middle of nowhere. I've stayed at worse places though. Try the steaks from the little gas station out on the main road (Gore road and Backcreek road). They are from Gore farm and are excellent on a grill. The cabin on site 2 was very, very old, built in 1972, according to the owner. The campground has been in the family since 1950 something. The lakeside cabin was very dirty and in poor condition. As we were 3.5 hrs from home, we decided to go to Wal-Mart 13 miles away to buy a mop and broom to clean the floor. There were stains, leaves and etc. There were mice in the cabin also which freaked out my wife. The view was beautiful from our site and once cleaned up, it was bearable. The showers were kind of disgusting though. There were dirty leaves on floor, no soap dish or place to change. The water was hot, though the doors did not close properly. The crappers were disgusting: essentially dirty outhouses with very old toilet seats. Apparently they don't invest time cleaning anything or invest money fixing up things. This place has SO much POTENTIAL. Nice local RVs. There are 4x4 trails, a gun and rifle range, fishing, hiking and swimming. It is upkeep that is lacking. We had a great time though. We would like to go back with our popup camper instead of staying at that neglected cabin. Owner: if you read this, please fix the place up and you'll have a goldmine. The gun range did get annoying as they shot all day Saturday and Sunday with rifles, pistols and noisy high power guns. Well, if you like it rustic, and laid back: have at it. The owners were very nice and helpful people. It was not so bad after all. - Terlordyl

The 3/4 mile long dirt, pothole, muddy road to the park seemed much longer. The constant fear that an RV might come from the other direction made it worse. We knew there was no sewer but I was very dissatisfied to find the dump station is at the end of a dead-end road with no place to turn around with any decent sized rig. One night and out of here. We do have a 40ft fifth wheel and the "D" section pull-through was plenty long enough and did have 50 amp. With all the rain it was very mushy so I popped the truck in 4WD to make sure I didn't get stuck. Would not stay here again. - cwier

There are no sewer hookups at this campground. There is a single dump station. The campground's website boasts that it is a "full service" campground, and nowhere does it say that there are no sewer hookups. I found this deceptive.
It's reasonable value based on the area, but sky-high if you're a fulltimer with the ability to pick-and-choose your destinations. We stayed one week just because we wanted to see DC. I can't imagine staying here otherwise.
We had a hard time getting our 35' travel trailer into the most spacious site in the campground. - JPen365

Just spent 5 days at the Brunswick campground and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean restrooms (newly painted) and right on the C&O Canal Bike Trail, which is why we were there anyway. PLUS they had dry wood for campfires and they'll even deliver to your site.
Are trains running close by? Yes! Didn't bother our party of three a bit. We stayed in a pop-up and had water and electric for about $45/night. Reasonable for the area!
Will we return? Absolutely!!! - JeffKruzic
