The park is kept very clean. Sites are very close together so when someone has a campfire burning you get the smoke and it seemed everyone had a fire. The showers were clean until someone gave their dog a bath in the shower. Not well lite. Very dark walk to and from showers. Lots of campers with their dogs ,walking them around the park. Wifi was not strong enough to do anything. On website price was $41.75 but was charged $46.75. Will make sure I book on line next time I stay at a KOA. - Rkserv

This campground is about 2 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The sites are close as are most KOA's, but there are tall shade trees. The owners are making important improvements yearly. We have been coming here for 5 years. In 2017 they added cable tv. The Wi-Fi is not strong, but my Verizon hot spot worked well with 3 bars. Lots of fun activities for the kids. Owners go out of their way to help campers who forgot something etc. Roads are fine with plenty of gravel. - rob3

My wife and I have been camping at this campground for about five years now. They have made great improvements to the property over the years. Kudos! However, they made a major change to their guest policy for this year in that you may only have four guests at your site at any one time. If you plan on having more than four folks visit at a time, select another camp ground. We will be! - Liberacebaily

Pleasant and nice campground, very well maintained. Realize this is an older parkway campground that is small and the sites are in general designed for smaller campers. When researching sites on the website, when it says a site is 30 ft long, realize the site driveway is what's 30 ft long, and can be angled (the longer angle measurement is 30 ft.) Generally this will not accommodate an actual 30 ft trailer, and then there is the problem of parking your tow vehicle. The pull-through sites are best for longer rigs, not the back-ins. Plenty of beautiful local hikes in the area, very pleased with our visit. - dxr

A park with real potential, but I had a few issues with it. The park has no services or showers, which is fine, but they allow generator use all day long, rather than just between certain hours, which destroys the peace. If that weren't bad enough, one day there were mowers running all day, and another day, they had a massive chipper operating for hours, shredding trees. It was very noisy. The RV side of the park is cramped, and there was only one spot on my site where I could get my slide out. I noticed this problem with a number of the sites. There are some sites where you will not be able to open any slides. I did walk through the tent side of the park one day, and it was really nice. They allow camper vans and pickup campers on that side. The sites are three times as big, and extremely private in that area. There is no cell service, even by antenna, and no wifi. - KAP99

Nice campground but no hook ups of any kind, no showers. Good place to camp cheap in a beautiful area. No campground activities for families. - 69camper

Stayed 3 nights over the weekend in a 43' motorhome. Used as base to visit local area. Exit from I-81 to CG is approximately 7 miles over a winding road, but manageable. CG is divided by main road. Check-in/office/pool, rec. hall, etc. and some sites on one side on paved roads. Our site is on the other side, over partly paved, gravel road up on the hill. Escorted to our site, U130, FHU PT, level, gravel/grass with fire ring and picnic table with views of the mountains. All utilities worked well including cable. ATT cell service was spotty at best. Many seasonal activities over the weekends geared to families. CG decorated for Halloween. Easy to visit Lexington/ VMI. - RTM

The staff was very helpful and nice. It is big rig friendly ( we have a 45' 5er), but only in the open area we were in. There is an area down by the river but it would be tight. The area above us in the trees would be very tight as well-and dusty due to all the golf carts. The park "was" great at one point in its life, however, we found the place very run down and in need of some serious maintenance. Had to move the rv several times trying to get it level w/o tires coming off the ground.....ultimately unsuccessful. Didn't see one rig with all tires on the ground either! The roads and slots are very overgrown and verbiage is missing from designating signs making it challenging to know where to drive & where to park. The amenities such as pool, water slide & game room needed some much needed attention & cleaning. Most campsites are across the street and some distance from all the amenities making a golf cart rental almost a given. They know it charge accordingly, too! $$$. Didn't visit or utilize any other amenities. Overall, the location was beautiful and enjoyed a lot of quality family time, but wouldn't return. Just a FYI for those interested. - Corby Clan

Yogi was crying while we were there. He didn't understand why campground ownership never seems to put money back into the park for maintenance and grounds, but expanded the park for even more sites on an already overwhelmed park and staff. Interior roads in campground in upper section are a disaster - heavily rutted and sections of pavement missing. My site was spacious and not that unlevel, but my friend's next us both had really unlevel sites and one had a huge tree stump to maneuver around. Lower section sites are so unlevel, we saw rigs jacked up on their stabilizers on top of boards or whatever they could find with wheels completely off of the site. Lower section sites near the river are so tight, they look like a state fair parking lot Two other families in tent sites who were camping with us paid $65 a night to stay in tent sites where the grass has not been cut and weeds had taken over the back half. To really improve things, start with combining two sites into one. This place had a ton of empty sites on the upper section and more people would come if the sites were properly maintained, level, and the lower sites had enough space. The pool is old and small for this size campground. There needs to be another one added in the upper campground. Those sites in the field in the blazing sun would be the perfect spot for it. The inflatable water obstacle zone in the pond needs to be completely replaced. The swimming pond is disgusting and needs to be dredged. This campground needs at least two more bath houses. They are also short staffed, but I've read the owner's comments on reviews of his park and he refers to making repairs over the winter...but those reviews go back at least five years. Why on earth they chose to push further back on the upper section and open up yet more sites for seasonals (which also isn't getting mowed) is beyond me. I'm heartbroken because we've camped here for years and we won't be returning. - hopefulone

Great overnight stop. We cringe at paying big $$ for a one night stay but this is quite the opposite. Easy to find the park from I-81. Streets through town were wide and no issue for motorhome and tow. We parked in the wide oval grass area and had great spacing from our nearest neighbor. Open skies in the middle of the field so DirecTV not an issue. Best wifi we've had at a city park! Grass mowed and well maintained grounds. Will stay here again! - rwarner22

The sites were essentially in an open field, but all we really wanted was electric hookup so we could have A/C (we had planned to boondock at the Walmart in Staunton but it was too warm to go without A/C). There were some townsfolk whom we met walking through the city park who were nice and told us about a concert going on at the pavilion at the end of the park. Our site was spacious because there was almost no one else in our section of the park. - pattic777

We had planned to stay 2 nights in a full hookup site. When we arrived, the office was closed for the weekend, there was no information about where the full hookup sites were. We pulled our 40' fifth wheel up into an area where full hookups were supposed to be. The sewer hookup on the only site that might have accommodated our unit was buried in mud. The interior roads were very narrow and partially blocked by other trailers. We never found the dump station. The water and electricity only camping in the meadow below was very water-logged. Not the place to stay after a long day of driving. We left to stay elsewhere. - FunTimes123

Great staff and excellent facilities. Gravel site was sloped and difficult to level. Beautiful, well maintained grounds. We'll be back. - DDaniel38

Just enough trees by the campsites to break up the heat of the sun, and not so many as to be in the way. The office is about centrally located in the campground, where there is a large pond that is open for swimming, with a water slide and a fountain out in the pond. Not far from the office is a swimming pool. Some of the many sites are more level than others, all are gravel. Most look like they are pretty good side to side, and front to back is easily corrected. All have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a large pavilion, and several smaller ones. The grounds are surrounded by woods. On summer nights there are fireflys everywhere. It's a very quiet and peaceful place at night. The train track is an active one and we can hear the whistles at night, but, it's not really loud.
Nice place, we hated to leave. - Jimal

We chose this campground as it was close by to a wedding we were attending. Road from Hwy 460 to campground is very rough and patched with loose gravel. We tow with a dolly and the ramps scraped the road when going over the railroad tracks.
Upon registering at the office, which is pretty far down in the campground, we were given site #9 and were told we would have to go totally around the park back close to the entrance, go around the very back row of a section in order to pull straight into our site -- they said the turns were too close for a camper to get into the site any other way. Upon following their directions to the campsite, the tree branches on the back row were so very low, they severely scraped the roof of our motorhome to the point we were afraid we would be missing air conditioners, antennas, etc. Hubby climbed up the ladder on the back of the MH and did not find any obvious damage, but I'm still not so sure that there isn't something wrong up there.
The campground is filled with permanent campers and we have no real problem with that as long as it wasn't loud. Our site was close to the entrance/exit so we were far away from the bulk of the permanent rv's. - gegllwy

Very old KOA with very narrow roads and very unlevel sites. Site we was in could use some gravel as it was mostly dirt. Needed two sewer hoses to hook up sewer. It appears that they are trying to make some improvement but still has a long way to go. Will not recommend or come back for the price. - Biggyrat

This is an older park, clean with helpful staff. However, it was not big rig friendly. It was a bit of a nail biter navigating around the tight turns, trees and rocks. Our site, although long enough, was not level at all. Steep slope on the passenger side. Had we been staying more than one night, we may not have stayed. In a walk around, it didn't appear any of the sites were level which is unfortunate since the park was nicely maintained. - Jim and Susan

Right off a I-81 exit. Park entrance is straight across exit at stop sign. Hilly coming into campground but didn't scrap tow bar. Office is further up driveway on right, check in was easy, staff very friendly. Road down to site was narrow but no issues. We were escorted to our site. Our site was down in the open area, gravel, wide, full hook up, but had to level the Rig. Site had picnic table, fire ring and some grass. Bottom section is mostly gravel & open, however surrounded by trees, and we were unable to get satellite. Cable worked fine. Older campground but appears they are working on updating some sites. They maintain the property however some of the gravel roads have erosion due to rain. Good laundry room - wash - 1.75, dryers are very efficient, clothes were dry in 20 minutes. Surrounded by a farm, quiet, couldn't hear road noise. Play ground, pool and small store. Small dog park, dirt, no grass. However, there are plenty of roads and some grassy areas out front to walk dogs. Park has multiple hills, and there are tiered sites with decks that appear nice. However, we have a 40 ft plus tow, and would not be able to maneuver to exit those sites. We stayed one night as we were passing thru. - KKColorado

The only possible improvement might be a pool (and sewer on sites), but sites are large, private and fairly level, Park staff are friendly and knowledgeable, other campers were for the most part considerate. Rangers patrol frequently (which I like). We're absolutely going back! - Central Virginia

Peaceful campground on the James River. We spent a weekend to go hiking and rent a canoe for a 6 mile trip down the James River. This park offers a lot of trails for hiking, 3 ponds for fishing and canoe, kayak, tube rentals. For camping it has 2 primitive campgrounds (one on a pond the other on the river), 1 RV campground (water and electric only) were we stayed and a horse campground.
Our site was mostly shaded and most all the sites were separated and private. Thin woods between each site. We had a great time and will go back again. - Joe J

We stay here at least two times per year-the first trip of the season and the last with sometimes a couple thrown in during the summer. It is a great campground with roomy wooded sites and excellent restrooms/showers. - pinesman

This is a no frills RV Park. It is right off of Hwy 460 so easy to get to. All sites are pull through so perfect for an overnight stop without having to unhook a tow vehicle. Check in was fast and friendly. Sites are gravel and a little unlevel, with a wider than normal strip of grass. No picnic table or fire ring.50amp and good water pressure. No amenities other than WiFi that worked well and our Verizon signal was strong. Road noise was not bad at night. We paid $40 a night with no discounts offered. We stayed May 25 -29, 2017. You are only minutes from the Appomattox Court House National Park and other historical places. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Like the name says, it is a RV Park not a resort or campground, paved roads and 30 paved level sites with grass and good utilities. No pool, no showers, no RR, no store, no laundry or playground. Close to Confederate Museum and historical Appomattox Courthouse National Park. All sites open sky for satellite. Good cell, strong free wi fi in site C-11. Good base to visit area but not a good value. Park three fourths empty in late July weekend. Recommend staying 2 nites to visit Nat'l park and museum in one full day. One mile to town and Walmart. Don't stay in site 1 thru 10 as on busy entrance road to MHP. Staff helpful and friendly. - Pepper Dan

This is an Escapees Park; they do not allow discounts the week before or of a holiday. We were here the week of the 4th of July. The value of this park is bad. No pool, no cable. It even lacks a picnic table. They claim to have wifi, we hooked up but that was it. We were here four night and could not use the wifi. The wifi is non-existent. Being close to the freeway, there was some highway noise. All sites are pull-through; some are shaded. There are some residents in the park. For the most part, they are well-maintained. The park is close to the National Park; the Museum of the Confederacy is right across the street. We were here in a 40' fifth-wheel. - oldbluejay

First of all, let me say this review in no way reflects the employees at this park, they were exemplary and we saw them working hard in oppressive August heat.
That said, we really wanted to love this park, we've camped there twice and both times had pretty much the same experience. We have a 40ft Fifth wheel that is all-electric and uses 50amp service. We knew going in the park only had 30amp so we were ready to adjust accordingly. However, the 30amp at site 61 was not true "30 amp" Our PMS service would only allow us to run 1 ac and absolutely nothing else, so when checked we were actually running 27 amps. To run the microwave or anything we would have to shut down the ac. In August, unacceptable. We've run 30amp plenty of times and been capable of running more than just an ac.
Thousand Trails has the bones of many beautiful parks in their system if they could see fit to invest in electrical upgrades and road upgrades. Along with the electric, the road was literally a dust bowl, the gravel used evidently crushes to a white powdery substance that even at the 5mph speed limit leaves a cloud of dust and a covering of white over all your equipment. This should not be so. No one wants to have their units and vehicles covered with so much dust you cannot see out of the windshields!
Again, I know no park is perfect, and even with the dust we so want to love this park, it is a beautiful setting, lake, pool..etc. and not that far from many attractions, Lynchburg, Appomatox, etc. We probably will not return due to the electrical issues in the park. Sadly. - buffy

Nice rural park as others have said. Nearly all full hook up sites and all sites are 30 amps only. Sites have gravel and near all look level, plus nearly every site has good shade cover. Nice big pond and walking trails around the pond, all if so wish you can drive around. Plenty of activities over the weekends we were here. Only small problem we had is the ranger seemed to know less than we did when we checked in, and this was our first time at this park. - M5Adventures

This is an older park in a rural setting. The lake is available for swimming but I wouldn't venture into it due to the quality of the water. This lake needs some serious attention. The interior roadways are all gravel and some are rutted due to erosion. The sites are also gravel and not very level. When we were here the store was not open. Other than at check-in we never saw any staff on the grounds. There were no planned activities during the middle of the week and little on the weekend. The pool was well used but again no staff present. There was a hot tub as well. We went sightseeing in the surrounding area and found the location acceptable. Verizon is borderline 4g and there are few sites that had DirecTV access due to the large trees. A number of sites in all the loops had the power boxes covered. We assumed these were inoperative. Unlike most Thousand Trails/Encore parks there is a high percentage of available sites for travelers. - BobWW

We came here as an overnight stop off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The drive down from the Parkway is steep and windy. You check into the campground at the general store across the street from the campground. When you call ahead, they tell you to pull into the campground driveway, and then walk across the street to check in. The campground is very shady with narrow gravel roads. It was fine for our 30 foot Class A. Our campsite was pull through and sort of elevated along side one of the roads. It was mostly level (we are in the mountains after all) and the utilities were convenient. The camp host came to greet us and was always tooling around the campground in his golf cart taking care of things. Though we stayed for just one night, we found it a relaxing and pretty place to stay. There are two fishing ponds, though we did not try the fishing. - ShoreXplorers

Stayed here one other time about 5 years ago (review is on this web site), and I can honestly say this place has gone downhill. The roads in the campground are rutted and extremely narrow, same as 5 years ago. The site I was assigned to, 30, I couldn't open either of my slides. Moved to 31 and with some maneuvering was able to get both slides and the awning out. Both sites were not level and required about 2" of lift. They claim to have a "beach", but you couldn't pay me to go in the water.
Getting out was harder than getting into the site, with large trees making turns very difficult, requiring backing in a couple of cases. My trailer is 31' and it was tough getting through this place. NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY! The only redeeming thing about this place is its proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway (3 miles). If you come in on the parkway it is much easier than trying to come up route 56 which is extremely steep and twisty. If you come in on the parkway from the Waynesboro end, your GPS may try and take you on Campbell Mountain Road. DO NOT take this road. It immediately turns to dirt and is extremely dangerous!
Stay on the parkway and take the route 56 exit. - scjenk

The worst RV park we never stayed in.Had made reservations for 2 day stay. Great direction warning on website, but when we arrived and drove through park (?), found no sites suitable for 38 ft fifth wheel. Very narrow winding road through campground, unlevel sites, with trees right up against the roadway. Decided not to stay; worse than old state park campgrounds. Made reservation at Passport America rate, but when we told the office personnel that we had trouble navigating through the campground and weren't going to stay, they charged us the full rate. Campground was empty, so it's not like our reservation prevented someone else from camping here. Would not have minded cancellation fee of 1 day at PA rate, but being charged 1 day cancellation at full rate was just wrong. Not a campground for rigs over 30 ft. - Traveling Warrior
