Excellent restrooms and camp store. On-site management some of the best we've met in our 9 years of fulltiming. The power, water, sewer, Wi-Fi, and cable are all acceptable. Make sure you reserve in well ahead arrival in the fall, due to area festivals and UVA home football games. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here before so coming back wasn't really a big decision. This park has a very clean laundry with 4 washers and 4 dryers. The parking pattern is not to squeeze units in side by side so it's really a treat to stay here. Good long dog walk and they provide pick-up bags, so owners please pick up! This Campground is close to all the attractions and town. The office has a hand-out that has directions for shopping, etc. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Closest RV park to Charlottesville attractions, otherwise not memorable. All sites are gravel and most are not level. We tried two sites before we could get level, but our leveling jacks could not do the job without help from additional blocks. Not acceptable! Sites are close together. Electric and water worked well, sewer was uphill requiring us to lift the sewer hose to get it to flow. Not acceptable! Weak cell phone service. Verizon mifi was slow. Park wifi sign-on screen usually did not appear so we could not use wifi most of the time. Located down 9 miles of narrow, winding, no shoulder, 55 mph road. Very difficult driving for a large RV, not too bad with our smaller class B, but had to be very careful. Quiet at night. Will not return. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very pretty and well shaded park. It has cable (fairly grainy on some stations) so you don't have to use satellite but some sites can get it anyway. The access road is a little winding, especially coming from the west, which is the way most GPS sends you; use the CG directions instead. The entrance to the park is hard to make coming from that direction and care must be taken when exiting as there is a blind curve to the left. It is one of the few parks that does recycling, not mentioned on the written information (even though you don't need to separate the items from the trash - "single stream"). I gave this park a 6 because we had a lot of issues with the electric. I know it wasn't the park's problem as they couldn't fix it, but the voltage at night was 130-135 volts which tripped our surge protector, as it is supposed to do over 132 volts. The answer I got from the office was those things frequently malfunctioned and that we should just unplug our suppressor (as recommended by the manager's father - an electrician?). Obviously we weren't going to take that bad advice. And I know that our unit was properly functioning as the motorhome in the next site was having the same issue and when they asked the manager, she said she had not heard of any issues, even though I was just leaving the office. The manager said she contacted the power company to address the issue. Again I know they had no control, but it was the attitude that bothered me. Hopefully the issue has been resolved. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice campground in wooded area. Pool was still open after Labor Day. Internet and cable worked good. Would suggest if you need groceries, to stop in town because campground is 8-10 miles out of town. Their camp store does have a small selection of items. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice secluded campground with very nice staff. Almost all of the sites are shaded. We were visiting Monticello - about 8 miles from the park. The lightening bugs were beautiful at night and it was very quiet. We did make a mistake by coming into the park on Old Lynchburg Road. Make sure you follow their directions. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Still the best choice for the area, great deal of effort is taken to maintain the facilities. Sites can be tight, but they may combine some sites to accommodate larger RVs. Great staff and showers. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

Excellent facilities. Showers are much better than other parks in area. On-site owner/management do a great job of making visitors feel welcome. Wi-Fi is good close to office and cable is above average. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the only campground convenient to Monticello. Follow the park's website directions to it to avoid traffic. This park is about 11 miles from the highway. The road to it is a two lane paved road with 55 mile speed limit which was way too fast for us to drive our fifth wheel on this somewhat curvy road. This park has one of the strangest layouts we have seen. The dump station is right on the side of the main drive. You have to park on the main road and walk down to office to register. Registration was organized and painless. We had a pull-through site which had a short steep downhill approach into the site. The electric hookup was towards the front of the site which would have been a problem for us if we did not carry a 50 AMP 25' extension with us since our electric connection is at the back of our RV. Only second time we needed to us this extension. To exit this site you had to make a tight left turn which inconveniently had a tree right at the edge of the road. Lucky for us, site in front of us that led to a road out was not occupied, so we pulled through that site to get out as it did not have any trees obstructing the turn. Several sites had really steep approaches into the site. Roads through this park were tight to navigate with a larger rig. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is rustic, away from noise and activity. Great place to actually camp. Road to the park, about 10 miles from I-81 becomes very narrow, winding with lots of trees and bushes, big rigs beware. Park is smaller with lots and lots of trees. They do have some nice long pull thru spaces for bigger rigs that are easy to get into. Sites and roads are gravel and ours was level. I was able to use my satellite dish but it will be difficult in most spaces. They do have cable and free Wi-Fi (good speed). Verizon service is very weak. It is a nice park for a stop in Charlottesville or just to relax for a couple of days. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff was very nice. Campground is located in a very wooded area and we had very little cell phone reception. The internet was fair, usually unable to use in the evening when everyone was back in camp. Best internet service was in the morning. The sites are gravel and fairly level. Had a heavy rain storm and did not flood our site. Trees provide nice shade. Each site has a table and fire pit and lots of room. This is the closest campground to Monticello, but might check other areas if we return. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the only RV Park to stay at and visit Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. It is 11 miles to Monticello and a very worthwhile stop. The park is "in the woods" with gravel sites, full hookups, cable TV, a picnic table and a fire pit. The park has a pool and a fishing pond. Behind to office/store there is a play area for kids. The $44 rate includes tax and reflects our KOA Discount Card. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff is friendly. Because it is located deep in the trees, we were not able to get satellite. There wasn’t very good cell phone reception. Our space was big and level. We did not feel crowded. Would not recommend for overnighters since it is located about 10 miles off the main road. However, we stayed here three nights and it was convenient for the touring we did in the area. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hosts are great KOA hosts. They are always helpful and friendly. We have camped here several times and have been happy each time. The campground is quiet and peaceful. Make sure you check the campground site for information about which exit to use off of the Interstate. Great family campground! We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.
