This park was so peaceful. The people who worked here were helpful. Chickens and a rooster visit your site. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

No WiFi and no hot spot. Chickens were allowed to free range thru out campsites, so watch where you step, even at your own door. Paid $55 a night, felt like I was overcharged. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Pricey for what you get. $50 for a gravel back-in that isn't nearly level. It took 3, 2x6s under the front wheels to get the front end up enough to keep things from rolling off counters. When making reservations for 7 nights they required the total cost of the stay as a deposit. 3 mile road to the campground is a narrow two lane road with lots of tight turns making it less than big rig friendly. TV is analog so unless you have an old TV or converter (or a dish) the picture is grainy. Internet is spotty to non-existent and the staff position on the matter is basically "it either works or it doesn't" There is Poison Ivy growing near our site. Love the Shenandoah area but my experience at this campground has spoiled what was to be a very special vacation. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here before but forgot that the 3-4 mile road off the interstate to the camp is fairly skinny for a big rig. We didn't have any problems but we were glad that we didn't meet another big rig. It was a fall weekend and sites were limited so we were glad to get it but...for no sewer and no cable TV, $50+ is high. We couldn't get satellite TV because of trees. There aren't many campgrounds if you want to visit JMU so have to compromise. The staff is friendly and helpful. They also will deliver pizza to your site, of which we didn't partake, but it's certainly a nice option after traveling all day. The space between the sites is nice and wide with a picnic table and a rock fired ring. WiFi is pitiful or worse and AT&T cell is minimal. Good electric, soft water with not great pressure. Would stay again out of necessity. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Nearest campground for big rig close to JMU. On weekends, there are usually some good flea markets and antique shops in New Market. Golf in Harrisonburg.

Called before arrival and inquired about the Internet. They said it was good, however, it never worked, even after I went to office and asked about it and they supposedly "reset" it. On plus side, shower area warmer than most, though shower head (unmovable) pointed straight out, got stuff outside of stall wet. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We spent three nights at this campground while touring Shenandoah National Park. As noted in previous reviews the local road leading to the campground entrance is intimidating, but proved not to be a problem either arriving or departing. The campground is very picturesque on a forested hillside with level gravel sites with picnic table and fire ring. The staff were friendly, helpful with local knowledge and we were escorted to the site. The campground is big rig friendly as we saw several 45' motorhomes towing trailers entering and leaving. Facilities were typical KOA, clean and adequate. Our kids enjoyed the pool. WiFi was poor and satellite was non-existent due to the trees. The campground is convenient to Harrisonburg for shopping, banking, etc. We would camp here again. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Not big rig friendly. Very tight narrow mountain road to get there. $100 per night for a gravel site that is not level. Barking dogs. Nice patio with a gas grill and patio furniture, but some animal is living under the patio. Wifi is terrible. It is great for smaller rigs. I won't be back.

Park is nice; especially for families. Nice, but small pool, Mini golf course on property.... Good waking areas for dogs (leashed); however, we pretty much are on the run and then get back to rv, check emails from work, maybe a little TV and to bed. We were told this park has wi-fi (important for us), but not enough power to connect at all. We had a distant site the first night... Moved closer to office fit our promised site, still no WiFi, and this is likely part of the cost to stay at this park. On our second night, two of the center caps from our Hondas tires were stolen. Also, they need to bring in new rocks. It rained and we had to connect our pull behind in mud. What a mess. So, I reported it to the young girl upon leaving. She just said they have real problems getting WiFi with the mountains. I suggested that be included on their website for those campers who really need WiFi. She wasn't too concerned about the theft, but they aren't responsible. I decided to not even mention the rocks and mud. Still we loved the location and the shady sites. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Park is very rustic and not meant for anything larger than 20 feet. Yes this park does have the long sites, but large rocks are at the edge of some of the sites and it is almost impossible to make a sharp turn. We had a hard time getting our motorhome and tow car into the site. Big boulders look nice but block a lot of the campsites. Was really worried about the road heading to the campground. Very narrow and winding. They advertise WiFi but is only available after 2 am and until 7am. Television is cable and all snowy. Bring bottled water because theirs is not the best. Staff was very friendly but had to wait for someone to show up to check us and other people in. Drive past this one if you can. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate includes taxes and reflects a $25 discount using our rewards points, but we had to pay a $5 early check in fee. We lowered our rating because of that! We hate early check in fees! The staff was friendly and drove us around in a cart so we could check out sites. We settled on pull through site 18. It was a long, mostly level, gravel, full hook-up site. It was wooded, so we didn't even try to put out our dish. Utilities worked great except for internet. The campground wifi was terrible and un-usable. We lowered our rating for that too! Verizon 4G worked well. They have a flock of chickens that we found delightful, running around the sites. We were in a 33 foot 5th wheel and did not find the drive in from the interstate objectionable at all. It WOULD be a little hard in the dark. We would stay again IF, no early check-in fee and usable wifi, otherwise, NO. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Located in a remote area but not too far form town. Check in went smoothly with courteous and efficient staff. We were escorted to our site. Roads and sites are gravel but well maintained. No trouble leveling our rig. Very quiet. Hiking trails nearby but we were only stopping overnight so did not get to check them out. Would stay here again if in the area. Our rate was after 10% KOA discount. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

This is after the KOA discount. No, it is NOT an easy on/off I-81. The 4 miles is a slow drive on a narrow country road. We will not stop here again. The people were great, grounds clean but it is too difficult to get to for an overnight stay. We had a pull thru site for a 36' motorhome with a small car in tow.

This is not what I was expecting from a KOA. The write-up makes it sound like paradise, not so in reality. Lady at reception was most pleasant, but its downhill from there. This is to say the least a "rustic" mountain campground. Tight maneuvering with rocks and stumps. Our pull-through had the motorhome fairly level but the toad was on an uphill slope. Our neighbor with a 43 footer towing a trailer had been wedged in the night before, and was trying to find a way to get out the next morning. Forget the wi-fi. The road in from I-95 is a roller coaster. Oh well, live and learn. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Park is a bit of a way off I-81 and the road in is windy and steep; wouldn't recommend in bad weather. The Wi-Fi was pretty much non-existent. We have AT&T 4G and hardly had any service. So contact with outside world via smartphone was terrible. Otherwise our one night stay was OK, at least the Cable TV worked. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Motorhome.
