A nice campground that I would consider more a destination park rather than one stayed at while traveling. Good hosts and workampers present. Appeared to be an older park with sites mainly scattered through trees. Because we are a smaller Class A, we were put in an angled site between trees which gave us decent space on one side but a little less on our entrance side. leveling was a must for our site and even those we saw on concrete. We used the campground as a base camp to get to Appomattox and surrounding area. A nice feature is that the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance is less than a mile away.
Coming from I-81 South the KOA book had us get off Exit 175 which was fine (Garmin was giving another exit). Going into the town of Glasgow it is an easy drive. After you turn on County 130 the road is a bit hilly and then you see the warning sign for 65' trucks/Rvs. For the next 3.6 miles you are in S curves and switch backs. Taken at appropriate speed it is very doable. We had to come out the same way as in, so the difference was we were climbing vs down hill. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Appomattox and the Confederate Museum are nearby. Appomattox is a national park site so if you have a senior pass, you get in free. there is a fee for the museum.
Stayed at this KOA over the weekend and was unbelievably impressed. You can tell that it's a labor of love for the owners. We pulled up and were welcomed by a waving greeter. Check in was no problem. Then escorted back to our spot. The entire campground is extremely neat and beautifully maintained. Spots were VERY roomy and private feeling. Overall, I would recommend it. Would definitely go back. Thanks again for a great stay! We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are large, level, on gravel with grass "yard". Many trees have been trimmed or cut back so the roads are more navigable than in the past. The new owners keep the place very clean, and are very friendly. The new bathrooms are individual rooms with toilet, sink, shower and are clean. Since this is in a rural area there is little to no over the air TV, cable is not available, and the satellite WIFI is slow. We have stayed here before, and will stay here again.

We were here two years ago when this campground was called Wildwood. At the time it had new owners. Since then, they partnered with KOA and the park has become more family friendly. Sites are either gravel or concrete pad. We were on a very large comfortable pull-thru on a gravel site and did have to level one side, but once set up, no problems. New bath houses are kept very clean and trash is picked up at your site every day. They also have a central location for those that recycle, which we do. The owners are very friendly as are the employees. The pool was immaculate and crystal clear! There are rental cabins in the park and tent sites are located near the lake. The only negative thing about this park is that the internet is the worst! I hope they can get that worked out, since, at least for us, the internet is important. Because of the internet service I must give an 8, but I hope I change it to a 10 when we come back again in August. We will camp here again.

Pretty spot in the woods. Fairly level gravel sites - some are tight others are fine. Be sure to get sewer site since dump station is tough to get to. Less than 2 miles to Blue Ridge Parkway. About 15 miles to grocery/gas/Walmart. Lots for kids on the weekend, nice and quiet during the week. New owners are very nice and continue improvements. They have taken down quite a few trees and done a better job of marking roads/sites so it is much more navigable. They have also tried to level sites and have put down lots of new gravel. Only a couple of over the air TV stations. Weak Verizon signal, no AT&T signal, and slow but free Wi-Fi. Great location for visiting the Parkway, Natural Bridge, Lynchburg.

New owners are hard at work and it shows. My complaint is that is too disconnected from the world. Satellite TV is a no go and there is no cable TV. We are not true campers and I want all the comforts of home. The park is very quiet and has everything you would expect from the Blue Ridge Mountains area. If you are a down to earth camper you will love this place. If you have a class A motorhome for a reason, then maybe not.

This is a beautiful park only one mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The new owners have and are making many improvements to the campground, and we enjoyed our stay. They have goats and chickens. The pool was beautifully kept and clean and we enjoyed playing shuffleboard on the newly painted court. There are some seasonal campers and several cabins. All of the staff were courteous and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and will go back. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Motorhome.
New owners, new to KOA. Looks like they upgraded prices to KOA standards without much other upgrades. It's an OK campground and the main attraction is that it's close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Narrow gravel roads, but sites are level, no cable and satellite is pretty much impossible through the trees. Only got two networks on the Jack antenna. No cell phone coverage. They have Wi-Fi, but it's glacially slow! Maybe the new owners will get it in shape, but now it's not there. In short, if you need an overnight near the Parkway, it's OK. If you expect amenities, find somewhere else. One caution. The stop sign at the exit to the parkway has a blind view to the right, and we almost got t boned by a car coming around the curve at about 70 mph.

Location. Location. Location. Right at the base of the Blue Ridge Parkway. New owners are friendly. Site is a bit rustic. Has mini-golf course and small lake. Hard to get satellite but they do have numerous dishs around the park. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very clean and neat small campground. New owners appear to be making positive changes. Site 17 was level and the utilities were easily accessible. No cable or internet, but some local TV channels. Very convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway (1 mile) and not that far to Lynchburg. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

This park just changed ownership. Owners were nice and helpful. Quiet time enforced. Needs better signage from road because some GPS directions were incorrect and if you miss it then must go 10 miles of mountain road before you can turn around. Lead-in signs would be helpful. Very family friendly with good activities at Halloween. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Motorhome.

After a long day on the road, there was a bit of a mix-up while checking in. However, the new owners were apologetic, very friendly, and helpful. Wooded campground with plenty of pull through sites with concrete pads, including ours. Beautiful pond with ducks looking for a hand-out! On the weekend, a couple times a day, the owner drove the kiddies (and some parents) around the park on the “train” ride which is a tractor with 3 trailers decorated like a circus train. The owner was quite helpful and answered all of my questions, and then some. We will be back! Facilities include the old bath house with 2 toilets and 2 showers in each and a new bath house which has four separate doors. Each has a shower, toilet and dressing area.

We stayed at Wildwood as our base while touring the area and exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was very convenient (1 mile from the parkway). The campground was very clean and in such a beautiful area! They have new owners this year that are so friendly and helpful! It was a great place to relax and kick back.

Older family style wooded campground, friendly staff, and many pull through sites with concrete pads. The water connection was in a small pit and the valve/connection was covered with soil. Only two showers and two toilets in the bathhouse, but we were there during the week and the campground was not crowded. Being just an overnight stop for us the campground was entirely suitable. Conveniently located close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, it appears to have a lot of family related activities on the weekends. We would stay here again if in the area.
