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. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Blue Ridge Parkway is a great way to drive leisurely and see the mountains. Peaks of Otter has a restaurant about 1 hour south. Very nice location. Groceries are about 15 minutes away in Madison Heights.

This is a nice quite park with friendly accommodating staff. There is no cell service except Version. The staff provided Wifi codes for two devices which helped. If you're coming in from the north off I-81 south you might want to find another way around. Drove 20 miles on very narrow and crooked roads over the mountains with lots of switchbacks. Not fun in a 40 ft motorhome with a Jeep in tow. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Motorhome.

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!

Friendly staff - escorted us to our site which was large and wooded. Since we drove to the park from the east, it was an easy drive. If coming in from the west, not so much - curvy, banked roads. Wifi was weak, we were given a slip with the passcode for duration of our stay. And no cell service, at least for our phones (ATT).

Nicely maintained park...Our site was mostly level and nice shade cover with trees. Wifi was non-existent. We were able to receive 8 channels with our antenna. Lot of up hill climbs and switchbacks to get to the campground. Kinda scary with a 39 ft 5th wheel. Found a different way out..Great destination park.

We have been to this campground three times and will go many more. The setting is beautiful, close to the BRP, and bathhouses are very clean. We stayed in a deluxe cabin so we had running water and electricity. But we could easily stay in another cabin and been just as happy. The pool was awesome! The water was perfect for a dip on a hot day. I've seen other reviews where people were not happy about wifi or no cable. We go to get away so not having cable is not a negative. We want to be outside fishing, swimming or hiking. The wifi is fine and sending/receiving texts worked. It's 100% relaxing and a family campground so there were no loud parties and rowdy neighbors. The pond if fun catch and release fishing. The trails are fun, not for marathon training, simply to enjoy the outdoors. We found baby frogs which were so cute, thankfully no snakes. Oh there is a store for all the things you may have forgotten, we highly recommend the mystic fire, it changes the colors of the flames for your fire. So cool! They also have gem mining and my son was not disappointed. He found many beautiful gems and crystals and had fun doing it. I can't say enough good about this KOA location. It's open, beautiful, relaxing and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Cabin.

This is a nice clean and quiet campground a bit off the interstate. Stayed four nights and explored the area. Good location to see Natural Bridge,the caverns, D- Day Memorial and Appomattox Court House. Nice owners greeted us as we pulled in. Check in was easy and we were escorted to our site. Level gravel site with table and fire ring, plenty of room for slide out. Not much ground cover between sites but plenty of trees for shade. Restrooms were clean and are individual rooms with shower, toilet and sink. Wi-Fi very slow to non existent because of their location and being on satellite Wi-Fi. Campground gets busy on weekends. There is a pool and plenty of activities and games for kids. We would camp here again if in the ares.

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.

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.
