This is a no-frills park with no rest rooms. Water pressure is low as others have mentioned, but nothing that cant be dealt with. Wi-Fi worked fine and was strong enough for us. The park is quiet, and there is little noise from the highway. Our daily rate reflected being a member of the Kosmo Club, which involves a one-time fee of $15, and allows one to stay at the reduced rate for 2 weeks every year. We have stayed here before, and would certainly stay here again, as this is a convenient location for visiting people in Glen Allen. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.
Good place to stay if just needing a place to stay. No real amenities. Long gravel pull-through sites. Office staff very nice and helpful. We will stay here again if in the area. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a 40' pulling a trailer so our sewer hookup on site 9 was waaaaay behind us. I had to go buy another hose to get to it. My hoses were about as long as my coach! This place was not first-come-first-served. They assigned you a spot, even though others were available. Water pressure was low, only about 30psi, according to my neighbor. The mobile home park next door had a road that led out to the main road that was a bit scary in that the cars would zoom out and in too fast for my liking. They could use some speed bumps. I agree with the other reviews that $35 is a bit high for no bathrooms or showers and low water pressure. Nice room between the sites and level. Close to the interstate but at night it got very quiet. Nice folks at the office. We'd stay here again. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.
Just an update that agrees with earlier reviews: An unremarkable place, but good for when passing through. No amenities, showers, etc. but they do have a dumpster, and the area was clean. Water pressure was always low, and the Wi-Fi signal was consistently noted as "poor" on my laptop. Fortunately we had another option. Price seemed high, but only one other RV park in the area and they are higher yet, and in sight of I-95. As another reviewer mentioned, the park is right on US-1, but it wasn't a noisy place, especially later at night. Remarkably quiet. I didn't find the office people particularly friendly. And never saw anyone during the day. We were there for a week. I was concerned by all the chain link fencing, video cameras, and security in the tiny office (with one-way glass all around)but it seemed to be a peaceful place. It is all part of a larger mobile home park in the rear. The neighbors there were friendly. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.
Just a basic campground handy to Richmond and located on Hwy. 1. No amenities but it certainly provides the basics if you're just needing a place to stay for a while. Water pressure was low. Felt safe and secure. Very handy to shopping and restaurants. If basic is what you need, this place fits the bill. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very basic RV campground and very small. There are no amenities, except for WiFi which works well for casual surfing. The price per night at $35 per night was a bit more then it should be, but there are very few RV campgrounds near Richmond so you just have to go with it. There is water, electric, and sewer hookup. There is no cable TV, if that is your thing. It's nothing to look at. It is next door to a trailer park. The noise was not noticeable even though you are next to Highway 1. In fact, at night the highway is very empty which allows for good sleep. Would I recommend this park? Sure. Would we come back? Sure, for a day or two. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is great for a stopover while traveling. It’s a mile or two off of I-95, about 12 miles north of Richmond. There are only 17 sites here just off of Route 1, with 11 of them being pull-throughs. Behind the campground is the mobile home park, also Kosmo Village. There are no bathroom/shower facilities and no one at the office. We made a reservation by phone, and a traffic cone was left in our site marking it as reserved. If you drive in, there is an area to fill out an envelope with info and drop into a slot with your cash. The sites are gravel & level. I didn’t need to unhitch because the pull-through was plenty long. Received several on-air TV stations with the use of antennae. The only negatives are that it’s very close to Route 1 where the traffic is 24/7 and there was a very bright parking lot light which shown into our bedroom. No tents allowed.

Considering the scarcity of campgrounds in the Richmond area, this place was completely acceptable for our 8 night stay. The campground is not fancy, has no amenities but we found the staff to be friendly as well as the people in the adjacent mobile home community (walked our dog there several times). It is convenient for driving into Richmond and food, fuel and shopping centers are nearby. Yes it is on Hwy 1,but the traffic noise was very light at night and did not disturb us at all. We would stay here again for a trip to Richmond. Rate reflects the "Kosmo Club" discount. Be sure to check that out if you'll be staying more than two nights. It's a $5 per night discount for up to 14 nights per year, for a fee of $10. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We got the senior discount and for the price this is a nice campground.The Wi-Fi worked well and it's an easy in and out not far from I-95. Other than no cable TV, for an overnight stay would use it again. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
It is always a challenge to find RV parks in Virginia, and Richmond is no exception. We chose Kosmo Village as it was closest to our family and not outrageously priced. The office is in a small concrete building. You enter into a tiny room with a doctor-office like window. The front desk personnel promptly opens the window though. They were courteous and prompt. The RV site was very long, gravel, and pretty level. The hookups worked fine. The WII-FI did not work so fine. We ordered WI-FI extenders while we we there to be able to use the connection. It is very noisy due to the proximity to Route 1and the traffic from the trailer park next door. There are no amenities other than a few picnic tables scattered around. It's not in the best part of town but not the worst either. I'm not sure if we would stay here again. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Nothing fancy. Got the senior rate for being over 60. Wi-Fi worked well. Highway noise was no big deal. Long sites sort of level. Had to move a table. No fire-ring. No shade. No big complaints for the rate. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Agree with the Oct 11 review completely. We've come here for 2 weeks at Christmas for the past 4 or 5 years and see some of the same rigs also visiting family. We've never had anything stolen or an incident of any kind. Office staff is great. We used to stay at the one on I-95 but the price was absurd and the staff rude. (That was 4 years ago. Price is still absurd. Don't know about the staff.) Much better value here and perfect as a base to visit family. There used to be some ugly, decrepit, full-time rigs but they have all been evicted in the last few months. For years there was a poor chap that wandered around all the time: harmless but would talk your ears off. He's been evicted also. Price is with the $5 lifetime Kosmo "membership." I had to check "no" to clean baths etc., because there are none. Wi-Fi is excellent. Big rig accessible gas station across from the CG. Propane available at the RV place behind the gas station. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an urban campground, satisfactory for a place to stay while visiting the Northern Richmond area. The utilities all work, the gravel campsites are level, and there is little traffic noise during the night (much quieter than traffic noise in campgrounds by I-95, which is about a mile or so to the East). This is a bare-bones campground, with no laundry, restrooms or showers. The grounds are well kept-up, with the grass mowed. We paid $5 to become a member with the privilege of staying at the Kisno Village Campground for $25/night for up to two weeks a year. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.
Great overnight stop. Has large pull through sites and is quiet. Reasonable cost. Just 2 miles from Exit 89. Good 50 amp service. We will use again. We camped at Kosmo Village Campground in a Motorhome.
