Very clean restrooms and showers. Tight turn into and out of campsite. Nice place for a stay or an overnight. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I really like this park stayed here 5 nights. There's something for everyone - shaded pull-thrus or open-field back-in sites with a view of the goings on-both 50 amp FHU, 30 amp wat/elec back-ins on a stream, or wooded tent sites. (The pull-thrus are not long enough to stay hooked up unless you have a short RV - a 40' would need to unhook.) There's a lower section or a steep-drive to an upper section. We were in the lower section - back-in, level, gravel site. There's tons for kids to do - jump pad, pool w/splash park, game room - and other activities-corn hole, horseshoes, basketball, ice cream social, bon fire, karaoke. Lots of activity with people milling about, if you like that. The upper section is quieter and more private, if that's what you're looking for. Very clean - trash picked up at site all day between 9 & 5. Very helpful office staff - friendly, easy check-in. Good cable TV and among the best WiFi we've encountered in 4 years. Fast ALL the time...never slows down during high peak times. Don't know if being in the lower level made a difference. Very dog friendly - good dog park. Easy to get to off I-64. Easy to get to Monticello, etc. Shopping not far in Crozet. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We only stayed here overnight on the way back from the OBX, but did walk around and look the place over. We arrived after closing and called the "Emergency Number" asking if they could accommodate some road weary travelers. The lady on the phone was very pleasant and accommodating. Got a pull thru site that handled our MH and Toad without having to unhook. They bathrooms were clean, the store looked well stocked and there was plenty to do, corn hole, jump pillow, pool, etc. We would stay here again.

This park is rather unusual in that it has two very different sections. The lower section is where we stayed for just one night. We were in a pull-thru, which was convenient, but it wasn't long enough for our 35' motorhome and Jeep. The sites are very close together, like our neighbor's picnic table was practically under our window. I would not want to stay there for more than a quick stop. I walked the steep hill up to the upper section, and that is in the woods and very pretty. It seems to be the place for longer term campers, and the steep grade up may not be for everybody. If you like group activities, you will like the pool and the very large lawn where people can meet. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a long weekend while visiting Monticello. It was only a 2o minute drive over there which was super convenient. The campground is close to the highway and easy to maneuver on the lower ground sites; never went to the higher elevation sites that are up the hill.
All of the hook-ups were at the back end of the site and the sites were a bit close together. Bathrooms were clean and nice but you have to walk up a hill to get to them. Pool was great and has a fun splash area for kids. I liked the overall openness of the area and everything appeared to be well kept. Some of the campers were partiers and we noticed drinking with some folks being loud. Our second night, there were visitors from outside of the campground with 3 loud cars that did "donuts" in the field across from us. I was nervous they were going to run into our truck at 11:15pm at night. This was just after the nightly entertainment ended, which was a band that played way too long. Quiet hours are not early enough and there is no one that we saw from the campground riding around to check on things. It's a shame, because we really liked the area for future visits and the campground was nice, but the party atmosphere was a turn off for us. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park, in a beautiful setting. Our site was in the trees with a picnic table. Very quiet and peaceful. The employees were polite and helpful. We had a problem with the cable tv reception when it rained, but that was ok. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is in a nice area, close to markets, freeway and the town of Crozet.

It was our first stay while we visited Charlottesville and nearby areas. This RV park is very convenient and had a just big enough space for our coach. They pick up trash at the site several times a day which is a nice bonus. I like to walk for miles each morning but the hills here are very very steep, and there is not any convenient path along lower sites other than going round and round in circles, but it is the hills of Virginia. Lots of tent sites some right next to RV's. Spaces are close backins. Barely room to park the tow vehicles adjacent, so roads get hard to navigate with vehicles sticking out. No convenient way to hook up but to block the road. The office staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a nice little store with necessities. As packed as it was quiet times are readily observed and it was quiet at night. Lots of tents, trailers, RV's many locals come and go. No TV reception, must have satellite. Amenities for children who were fully using pool, jump house, corn toss, etc riding their bikes and fishing. There were standing water ruts but it rained hard during our stay so not much could be done. We were thankful to have a space convenient to the activities we planned and we enjoyed our stay.. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.
All of Charlottesville, Monticello, Montpelier, restaurants, bars, wineries, distilleries, brew houses. Lots of tourist activities.

We stayed two nights and found the campground very nice. The pool and other games were great for the grand kids. We were up at the front of the campground near the office and there was some road noise from the highway noticeable. One of the small issues we had was that the showers were not in a more central building. The store was stocked really well with almost anything needed for camping. We chose to not disconnect our tow vehicle and were able to find everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

This visit started off very badly but ended very well. We arrived on a Saturday and they had only two spaces left, both in the upper area. No matter how we tried, we simply could not fit our camper into that space a way that would allow us to unhitch without the trailer starting to roll and being in danger of bending our jack so we gave up. We got a full refund, somewhat less than cheerfully, though that may have been because of how incredibly busy they were in the middle of a free hamburger supper. When we asked about boon docking until the next day when another campsite would be open we were very firmly told absolutely no boon docking anywhere at any time in their facility. We were directed to a Walmart in Staughton. We left upset and frustrated and ended up at the KOA which was open instead. Because we had business in the area, we came back the next day to try again and, as we had been told, they had many spaces for the three nights we stayed. The owner said she was really glad we came back and apologized for what had happened the day before telling us she felt really bad about our situation. We got a very nice spot on the lower area. The lower area is really really nice with a sweet babbling brook, a decent sized dog park, a nice laundry and lots of stuff for kids to do. The internet connection is the absolute best and we could even However, if you are driving anything bigger than a van I would not advise going into the upper area. It is narrow, the slope must be 13% on the hill judging by the gear I had to put my vehicle in and the upper lots are horrible, not level, the roads up there are lined with deep ditches you can't drive over and it is very hard to turn the corners. At one point on our way out I thought our trailer was going to tip over. The permanent residents live up there and they compound the problem by parking on the narrow roads. So I would give it a 9 or even 10 if not for the nasty start to the visit and if you do go, stay out of the upper area. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Great spot to visit Charlottesville from.

This is one of the few campgrounds within easy driving range of Charlottesville, VA (about 25 min. to the East). This CG is not far off I64, so its easy to find if arriving at night (as we did). This is a well run professional park with lots of staff to attend to the park and customers needs. Good services, nice store with LOTS of RV goodies. Topography: Its almost like two parks in one... You have the site areas near the office (which are basically on the flat fields), then then you have a road going out back into the woods and up a steep winding grade (and I do mean STEEP), to another collection wooded ridge sites atop this little mountain. We stayed near the road. All connections were adequate: AC power levels - good, water pressure fine, cable tv - umm, acceptable. Verizon: weak but fine. My site was far from level - front to back or left to right (which could have been fixed with a little grading work guys). Fellow campers there were all nice. Safe little place. The road out front of the CG is a small two lane highway. Its busy, and often filled with fast moving vehicles manned by seemingly quite impatient drivers - so use caution. Due to the surface of this highway, and the speed of the vehicles, there is quite a bit of road noise being blasted into the park (the road does thankfully quiet down some at night). The road noise became wearing after a few days...
Overall, a great place to stay, while you take in Monticello, or enjoy all that Charlottesville has to offer (which includes some great shopping). We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I got information online about Misty Mountain from some locals and prior campers on a forum, so I knew what to expect. Access of 64 was great, driveway was easy to get into with no clearance issues. Check in was quick and painless. I requested a site that I could easily maneuver my 37' fifth wheel in and out of when I reserved and was given site V-7. The biggest rigs can get in and out of the "v" sites with ease, however the power pole is directly behind the trailer and limits overall length. The neighbors sewer connection was within 2 feet of our picnic table, but some others were UNDER the seat of the neighbors table--gross. We walked the upper sites to check it out, the road is made to be more treacherous than it is, but once up there everything is tight. Wouldn't go up there longer than 25'. When we got back from our walk the Progressive EMS was shutting down due to low voltage on line 1. I walked to the office at 7pm Friday night, and the maintenance man was at the site before I walked back. While he didn't really understand what the EMS was or how it worked he agreed to replace the 50A breakers in the morning (it was dark by this point). I used a dogbone and ran off 30A for the night with no issues, as it was cool enough for one a/c. We didn't get back to the trailer til 10pm the next day but found the dogbone on the steps and the trailer plugged back into the 50a with no issues. I felt they handled the situation well. We did not spend much more time in the campground, out and around all weekend. Great place to use as a home base for doing any of the numerous thing the area has to offer. We would return to Misty Mountain, but it is more a home base than destination. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
So much to do in this area. We had 2 full days but could have spent a week easy. Breweries, wineries, skyline drive, the blue ridge parkway. If you are in shape and can handle the hike, Humpback Rocks around mile 6 of the Blue Ridge Parkways is an AWESOME view. Its about one mile each way but very steep.

Well maintained CG. Combination paved and gravel roads. Gravel RV sites, mostly level and combination pull thru and back in sites. Sites are small, you can see what's for dinner in your neighbors RV. The CG was well planned, good location for water, electric and cable, just too many sites for the amount of area. WIFI was excellent, antenna TV has zero reception. Common bathrooms and showers were some of the best I've seen in CG's in a long time. Separate room with sink, toilet and shower, very very clean. CG store well stocked, customer service was very good. The only real negative is the close proximity of the sites. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Thomas Jefferson plantation, James Madison plantation with in about 30 miles. Good historical, educational experience.

While this park has full amenities they are all in the lower section.
At $55 a night.
I took an electric and water only site in their upper section.
I had to pull in to a site sloping down hill, and could barely hookup to electric. I did not have enough hose to reach the water.
I can't wait to get out of Virginia. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.
If Charlottesville is your destination, stay in any one of 100 motels.

A Resort wannabe - No Way. Stayed in lower section sites. Sites were poorly leveled to the point that grass area between campers would become a pond after it rained. This made it impossible to get out of your car without getting wet feet. Showers and rest rooms were clean but had a 50 yd. hike up a hill from the store. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon. I entered the office to check in and was greeted by a dog on the counter. The staff member kept asking the dog to get down but did not remove the dog when I was attempting to pay for our site. It was not until another staff person came from the backroom and removed the dog. Once we completed the transaction I was given a map of the campground and we were on our way. We stayed in the lower part of the campground where we had a 30 amp pull-thru site. The pedestal was well positioned and easy to get to, as was the sewer. The sites were very close to one another. Not that we had a fire (too hot and muggy) but if we did we would have been sitting in the driveway of the neighbor. Other than that the campground was quite nice. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and modern. They have an upper section which is way up the hill and set back from the main road. There were several big 5ers and TT that made it up the hill. Given that it was a weekday for our stay not much was happening at the campground. The store and the pool closed by 8pm nightly which was a little disappointing. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here to be near Monticello. While here we also drove over to Appomattox. One thing we discovered by accident was a beautiful golf course in Crozet. It looks like a fancy country club course, but the rates were very affordable. Since this area is mountainous (very near the Blue Ridge Parkway), the climate is very nice. We would probably come back here just for the golf course.golfkitty • August 2015
