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. - C and K on the Road

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. - pcmike

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. - TxDiver

Not many level sites. The pool is the big attraction. It is fed by a spring right under the pool. Nice owners. Not very good cell service as it is in a very low spot, so no data cards work. - KED1950
Jul 2013 - $32.00
Owners very pleasant and busy with "community pool" and snack bar which they run in addition to campground and its pool. Campground is old, basic, and may not be too well maintained. We had been there only about a half hour, turned on a/c and blew a fuse in our RV. It had not been a problem elsewhere. With no one there to fix it, and a need to be able to run a/c, we left. The owner did refund half of our fee. We likely would not stay there again. - Faun

PRO: This park is close to entrance of Shenandoah Nat'l Pk. CONS: This park needs some cleanup and update immediately. It appears that the owners are more concerned about the operation of the commercial swimming pool on the property than the RV park. Trees need trimming to allow clearance for RVs. Sites need cleaning and general maintenance. Several long timers who have messy sites. Entrance asphalt has pot holes. Water supply contains grit. - backes01

We had a VIP site, a full service pull through on a hill. The campground is quite hilly and all gravel - if you don't have 4x4 you might have issues getting your around if your site is near the top. The campground is carefully manicured and is highly manufactured. That is, no natural structures are left standing as every tree has been bulldozed and all sites are graded with retaining walls, and many are very close together. Best to Google Map your site to make sure you're not crowded with someone. Although their approach is very clean, neat, and organized, it lacks all character. It's more of an RV park (aka: parking lot) and less of a campground feeling. They also have a weird Nascar-type theme going on with race car signs, tires, and other artifacts . We couldn't figure it that out. The "game room" was a giant, mostly empty, warehouse building with a line of 70-80's arcade games adorning one side, and a small group of chairs bunched together in the middle as they apparently project movies on the wall. There is a somewhat run down pool outside, and overall we found that whole area really gloomy and fairly depressing. The campground appears to be struggling with finding an identity and it seems that the owners have tried unsuccessfully to bestow any real meaning to the place. The wifi was spotty and we could only barely use it at times even though the wireless access point was located in the restroom building not far from where we were. The price was pretty fair, but we won't be back. - hojo70

I stayed at Endless Caverns RV Resort near New Market, VA in July of 2015. The weather was a bit cooler than it had been. The place was immaculate. Passport America rate was around $22.00. The staff was friendly. And they had every amenity available except cable TV. But the Dish worked and one can get OTA reception from Harrisonburg, VA. This campground is built into the side of South Massanutten Mountain. It is terraced with large stones separating the 300 sites. The pool was nice... and cold! The bath houses were clean and modern. The campground was only about 10% full on a Wednesday night the 3rd week of July. There is pizza delivery available to this place. I took the Caverns tour the following morning. I was the only person there so I had a private tour. Anyway, I am happy that some good campgrounds do exist. And Endless Caverns RV Resort is one of them! - User3064

We stayed here for two nights on our way south. Having traveled I-81 many times we decided to stop and visit the caverns and the nearby civil war museum. Road to the campground was paved while the interior campground roads were heavily graveled. We arrived after the office closed but was soon meet by a staff member who escorted us to our site. Visiting mid week the campground was pretty vacant. Most sites appeared to be fairly level in the lower section in which we camped in. We would stay here again on our travels if need an overnight stop. - Tiger6

Thirty paved sites, tables, fire pits/grills. Golden Age Passport give 1/2 off price. No Reservations. First come sites, but other than holidays, you should be able to get a site if you arrive between Sunday PM and Thursday AM. Dumpster, and one water spigot available near site 4. Restrooms have hot water, but no showers. Location: N38° 26.3796'; W78° 28.7078' Great visit. Spent 13 days. - Tom SKP

We stayed at the Lewis Mtn campground for only one night. This location has both cabins and a small campground. If your looking for rustic this is the place. No hook-ups or dump station, just peace and quiet. The sites are all rather small, catering to tents and the smallest of trailers. Most sites are fairly close together, with not much understory between them. Our site was in the middle of the loop, but we did have some privacy due to the fact we had no neighbors. Camp host was very friendy and a wealth of information. Wildlife galore in all areas surrounding the campground. Saw two bear, so keep you foodstuff stowed away. Big Meadows complex is only 5 miles away so food and fuel are close by. Overall a great little campground. Almost forgot to mention, you cannot reserve a site here, FCFS (First Come, First Served). - florida08

Lewis Mtn. is the smallest of the campgrounds on Skyline Drive, and caters to tent campers and hikers. Very friendly hosts who kept each site tidy. We spent one night here, then moved into one of their heated cabins later in the week when the weather turned nasty. It's a good choice if Big Meadow is unavailable. - Flying Mantis

This park is pristine with unbelievable views. The wife and I had been here many years ago before kids, so we decided to go back this time with them. The evening nature programs are excellent and the rangers are very polite, educational, and helpful. There is no electricity, and we provisioned a supplemental solar panel on our rig which worked just fine. We left on our 4th day as planned and still had 65% charge left on our single group 24 battery. I wish more people had a clue, it smells and sounds like an LA freeway during mid-day as everyone fires up their gas guzzling generators. Fortunately, we spent our days hiking and exploring the bountiful plenty that Shenandoah has to offer. The wildlife was the highlight of the trip as deer and bear are easily seen. - hojo70

This is one of my favorite campgrounds. We spend a good deal of time on the AT in Shenandoah and this campground is such a nice respite. Here's what I like:
- It's lovely, on the side and top of a mountain and the sites are mostly in at least partial shade. It's also very quiet, and people are there to camp, not party.
- There's one of the best camp stores EVER on the way in. Blackberry milkshakes... Nuff said.
- The RVs are pretty well away from the rent campers. Good for everyone. The tenter aren't in the way of the RV folks, RVs don't have to worry as much about disturbing the tent people, generator noise, etc, and the tent campers don't have to be around all the big RVs. Win win.
- all the tent sites have a bear box, an even, flat tent pad area, grill and fire ring.
- there's secure trash areas within easy access, as well as bathhouse facilities an easy walk from every section
- the Rangers and staff here are helpful, professional and non obtrusive
It's so close to the trail, it's impossible to run out of breathtaking sights and fantastic hikes. It's truly a hiker and nature lovers paradise. You get people up here who are here to appreciate the natural beauty of the area, not a bunch of crazy locals looking for a party spot.
The last time we camped here we had some excitement. Keep in mind you are up on a mountain and the weather can change in a snap and get pretty crazy. Within seconds, we watched a cold dark fog roll in, then the temp dropped about 20 degrees and it proceeded to violently storm, resplendent with torrential downpours, loud thunder and frequent and impressive lightening. We huddled snug in our tent most of the night as it passed through. Pretty scary, but if you come up here remember that's what you might be signing up for.
Really beautiful campground. - Metaphormidable

If you can live without all the hookups this is a great place! We came here after bailing on our reservation at Jellystone in Luray. Plenty of shade and space for the kids. Multiple hikes with fantastic views and waterfalls nearby. - cmpinva
Aug 2015 - $38.00
Very well maintained campground with lots to offer. Quiet and peaceful but less than 5 minutes to town. Friendly and competent staff. I had a problem with my truck and the manager drove me to town to pick up some parts. We plan to return to this park in the future. - rddempsey
Jul 2015 - $55.00
A very openly space campground. Parking surface was gravel and site was grassy. Tent sites separated from RV sites. Staff very friendly and helpful. Easy access to river to raft. No WIFI or cable but plenty of local channels but who need these if rafting down the river.
Very quiet campground after dark which is hard to image these days. Nighttime security a big plus. Overall cleanliness of campground was excellent however, needs improvement in the bathrooms as there is a total of 3 stalls per bathroom and with people coming off river to wash off a lot of mud/dirt accumulates on the concrete floors and also not much privacy in the stalls. We would come back again. - Biggyrat
May 2015 - $55.00
As some other reviews indicate, this is a very beautiful campground. It has an expansive feeling because it's surrounded by a lot of open space. It's very peaceful and spacious and has tons of river access. The RV sites are wider than average, level and well-maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Though its top amenities are the wide sites, beautiful views and easy river access, the staff is working to improve the property and will, in time, offer premium sites, Wi-Fi and other amenities that some campers might be missing. We feel that it's perfect now, just the way it is. We would camp here again. - User3542
Sep 2015 - $41.00
We decided to stay here after reading previous reviews and seeing how "spacious and level" their sites are. Anyone who claims this obviously has not left the large pull through sites and walked around the rest of the park. While the office personnel were great at check in and escorted us to the site during pouring rain, I can't say much more for the park. We came very close to a vehicle parked, partly on the road, perpendicular to their motor coach, at a very large pull through site, and pulled up to our short, very narrow, unlevel site. We had no trouble backing in, but needed two leveling blocks under our two left wheels. The site is so narrow, one of our slides hangs over to the tent site next to us. The layout is far from ideal unless you are lucky enough to get a P site (large pull through). The road noise from I-81 is constant whether inside or out. The park is clean and staff very pleasant, however it is very tight on the roads and cramped at the back in sites. Water and electric were good, WiFi was good, but we were kicked off a lot during the rain. Overpriced even with the discount, we would pay more for more room and a better site. We would not return. - pfogleboch

We stayed here for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend and a plus for them was they did not "hike" the price as so many campsites do during holiday weekends. A nice campsite, grass and gravel and our site level and spacious. Nice swimming pool. It looks as though areas have undergone refurbishment with new looking cabins. Wifi very good considering they were almost full. Cable TV including golf channel. Easy access from I-81 and some road noise but not enough to be annoying. - Harris England
Jul 2015 - $45.00
Easy on and off access of I-81. Owners put a lot of thought into the layout of this campground. Very clean and tidy. Friendly management. Level, gravel, pull thru sites. Playground, pool with shallow area for small children, snack bar, and camp store with good assortment of items. Pavilion with tables. Laundry in center area. Clean bath house and showers. Escorted to site. Will stay here again. - Savannah Sam

We spent several days in this park, which has great proximity to the Skyline Drive. Our pull-thru site was very large and pretty level. No WiFi here except at the office. Showers are odd pull-chain operations. Two sites across from us had 8 adults and 9 children. Very noisy. Lots of shade here which was good because the weather was warm. - MaineDon

We chose this park to visit the Apple Festival at Graves Mountain. It is not fancy, but it is the kind of campground we enjoy. The staff was especially helpful by loaning us a battery charger when out converter in the fifth wheel went south. - pinesman
Nov 2012 - $19.00
Passport America rate. Roads are very hilly and bumpy, but sites have good services. Showers are on outer edge of RV park; a long walk up and down several hills. Wouldn't seek this park out, but would stay in a pinch. - Travelin' Harrells
Oct 2012 - $15.00
Another wonderful campground in a beautiful national park! Much has been written already about this campground, so my comments will focus on our particular campsite, which was E118. This campsite was the only reservable big-rig capable site available when I made our reservations. We discovered why when we got there (I wish I had read more of the reviews, as the issues with this site are covered by at least one other reviewer). To cut to the chase, there isn't a level spot anywhere on this site. It's not just a little out of level, but a lot! I used every 2X10, every Lynx leveler, and every inch of travel of the hydraulic jacks we had to level up our 40ft motorhome, but I still could not get it level front to back. The bottom edge of our front bumper was at least 2.5 ft off the deck. The last step out of the motorhome was a doozy! I wish I could post a photo here because our motorhome looks like a 737 rotating for takeoff. I was able to get it level enough that it wasn't uncomfortable, and we were only going to be there two nights, so we stayed. Otherwise, I would have moved somewhere else, even if it meant leaving the campground altogether. In my opinion, E118 is not a suitable campsite for a tent or a large TT or MH, and Recreation.gov should not list this particular site as big-rig friendly . Perhaps a pop-up or a small TT would work better. Regardless, I still give the campground a very high rating because it is such a wonderful place overall. We will be back again, again, and again. - USMCRET

Very beautiful. So nice to be where there is little commercialism. Good space between sights. Saw a bear. Had a view of the valley. Well stocked camp store within a half mile. Easy to walk. - User2759

This is an excellent park, well-maintained and peaceful. The sites all have paved parking areas and grassy spots for tables, tents, fires, etc. The showers are a long walk or a short drive and are $1 for 5 minutes (which felt more like 3 minutes) but the cost of getting water up the mountain and dealing with waste water is expensive. The dumpsters were emptied regularly, and the hosts were friendly and knowledgeable. We were there over Columbus Day weekend and the weather was perfect; the campground was full both Friday and Saturday nights, so book early for busy weekends. The only point lost is for our particular site (E118); it was spacious but the most unlevel site we have ever dealt with. It sloped both side-to-side and downward; we did not have enough leveling blocks to make it level and we carry PLENTY of blocks. It was just a function of the location of our site; other sites looked fine. Overall a great campground; we will go back. - janezp

This is the nicest KOA we have stayed at in many years of camping. Our site was a deluxe patio site with a concrete pad. It was perfectly level and easy for us to get in and out of. The campground itself was immaculate with beautiful mountain views, a brand new pool, and well cared for sites. The interior gravel roads were easy for us to maneuver and well maintained. There are some seasonals, but they are neat and clean newer units. The bathrooms and showers were vvery clean although getting a little old. All sites have full hookups and many are pull throughs. The staff always said hello to us and took time to visit. This is not a campground that caters to children, but there is a nice swimming pool and plenty of room to play. The pool was just opened in July. This park has only been a KOA for 3 years and does not have a camp store to speak of. The owner is transitioning some of the activities as well, but for us, it was a perfect, quiet place to stay. - Phil from Akron

We met with 4 other campers here for our Club's Grandparents' Week. We ended up paying $200 more to have a golf cart. The park has lots for kids to do, including many activities. I rate it high for that. The dog park, however, is a sorry sight. There is no grass, it has poison ivy and is very small. That was a huge disappointment given they have so much ground and everything else is so nice. - Margie S Heiler

Great busy place! Water slide,horseshoes, fishing, tons of activities. Didn't like the cart rental fees, but liked that you had to be a licensed driver to drive them. Boathouse clean, deluxe cabins a blast.staff friendly and helpful. Recommended for a few night stay so you can do everything! - DeuceNiner
Aug 2014 - $80.00
We stayed a week here. It's a great place for kids. Just about everything is included in the cost of the site. Ours kids are teens and they still used all the attractions. Our site (204) was very level, had a nice cement pad. The cable box is a good 20 feet away so bring a long coaxial cable with you. We were escorted to the site but the "ranger" said he wasn't supposed to help guests back in. Fortunately some friendly campers jumped in to help. This row of motorhome sites has the best views in the park. 204 is directly across from the playground, which was fine with us but if you want quiet you might get one in another row or further away from campground. I had a couple of issues with electric and they handled it quickly. It's hard to reach the front desk by phone. There is one person working there who I think has been there a little too long. However, the young staff was very friendly. Overall, its a nice park. The "rangers" we called the Yogi PoPo and it did seem sometimes like were the "inmates" as opposed to customers. But that didn't ruin the trip. When they say "Quiet Time" is 11 PM, they mean it. All kids have to be back on the site at 11, which is early in the summer, for our kids anyway. The washing machines are clearly marked as "cold water only". The dryers were very good. The store is nice and has a lot of RV supplies. - User3662

The firs remarks out of the mouth of the "check in" person was "someone needs to get that dog on a leash!" Overall the park wasn't crowded and it was quiet, which was what I was looking for. You can still hear some road noise from US29, but the rest of the surroundings minimized that. Our site needed mowing when we were there. The facilities seemed in need of upkeep. When we were packed up and ready to pull out, I went to the bath house to wash my hands. They were being cleaned, so I asked if I could wash my hands. I was snapped at with "just give me 10 minutes". Given the negatives, it was still a relaxing park and a positive experience. I would probably stay here again. - bikeman911
Jul 2014 - $55.00
Staff is the worst I've ever seen in 40 years of camping. They take all the fun out of a relaxing weekend. Very rude. The place is falling apart. Huge ruts to drive through and the sites are horrible and run down. Too many other decent campgrounds in better locations. Find one of those! - husker1223
May 2014 - $47.00
They charge for everything. Campground is run down. It used to be a KOA, not anymore, it is a dump. The place was deserted on a gorgeous spring weekend. Small sites, the people come around everyday and grill you, and I mean grill you about where you got every stick of wood. They want you to buy it from them.
Check out is at noon, and I started to pack up at 1115 - only takes me 20 minutes to get done. They made a point of telling me I better speed it up because it would be $2 an hour if I was late. So then, not 1, but 2 staff members in two separate golf carts watched me (they tried to hide) to make sure I left on time. The second I pulled out, they disappeared. - husker1223

This is a small park with about 30 RV sites. We got a spot by the river, which was nice to watch the ducks and river go by. The restrooms were always clean and the owners were very friendly. The park is family owned. We met Grandpa, Son, and Grandson and they were always available for any issues. This park had the best cable and Wi-Fi of any RV place we have been to. The town is small, but you can walk to it. The spots were pretty close together so there is not much privacy, and the park is tight. Lots of bugs because of the creek, but that's to be expected. We have a 35 ft 5th wheel and not a lot of room to maneuver. We would come back if in the area. FOLLOW the signs to the park and NOT your GPS or you are going to make tight turns and go over a bridge that has a weight limit. - Dmuecke
Sep 2015 - $8.00
The park is in a beautiful and quiet area. A few of the sites on the ends of the rows had more privacy, but most sites did not afford any privacy. There are no services here, and no showers, but there is potable water near the dump station. There is no wifi, and I was able to get att cell service (but not verizon) with an antenna, for brief periods here and there. Generator use is restricted to two hours in the am and three in the late afternoon. There are miles and miles of great hiking trails. The biggest problem I had with this park was that there were only a handful of nearly level sites, and none of them are reservable. Many sites had sharp level differences both front to back and side to side. - KAP99

This park was nice because nobody was ther;, if this park was full which on weekends it is, I think you would feel like you were camped on top of each other. The sites are somewhat side by side with no barriers in between. We would stay here again outside of the peak season. - monaco cruiser

One of our favorite parks. The closest to Bridgewater. The camp sites are huge and not ruled off. You have a lot of flexibility as to his you set up. They have added 50 AMP service since we were last here a year ago. The park is well kept and extremely quiet. If you are looking for a peaceful, rural setting, this is it. We did not have sewer. The system says sewer is available but I think this is an error. - Ras2

Stayed overnight here. This is a county park. The sites are all on grass with unusual hookup arrangements. For the full hookup sites: really have put your thinking cap on to vector your rig in and be able to reach the facilities. That said, the sites are roomy and level. Nice playground for the kids and the chimneys are fun to explore. The staff were as friendly as can be, and other campers as well. - mike4330

Enjoyed our camping experience at Natural Chimneys very much. Campgrounds were clean and well kept. Bathrooms are old but kept clean and freshly painted. There are several hiking trails. The beauty of the Chimneys was awesome. We hope to return there many times. The staff was very friendly and helpful. - campb3

The RV site itself was very nice; large pull thru with a lot of shade. The grounds were nice but we did not like the fact that they mowed & trimmed at guest sites (permanent sites that would be fine), did not like the grass, rock, etc being thrown from the mower and trimmer. Also, don't plan on sleeping in on Tuesday mornings, the trash man showed up at 5 am. Lastly, as a guest using the laundry was basically impossible; you could choose between site seeing or washing clothes because the laundry hours were 7 am to 4 pm. My rating would be higher if not for these issues. - Skier31
Jul 2014 - $38.00
Nice campground with lots of amenities. Gravel pads with plenty of shade. Some sites would be tight to get in and out of with a big rig. Lots of seasonal campers but they keep plenty of spots open for transients. 7 miles off the I-64 and good for a night or two on the road. WiFi worked well, but we were near the office. Satellite TV would be iffy in a lot of the sites due to the trees. If the rate were lower, we would stay here again for an overnight. Rate shown is with tax. - TX Camper
May 2014 - $38.00
I really, really wanted to rate this campground higher because the staff was so friendly and accommodating and the bathrooms/showers were so spotlessly clean. But the reality is that it is crowded, noisy, and occupied primarily by seasonal and/or year-round units, many of which are well past their prime. The road noise from Rte 340 was very noticeable, especially in the front of the park. There were nearby trains all night long blowing noisy horns, and on Friday nights you get the special treat of the race cars blasting their engines at the speedway down the road. There is nowhere to walk the dog other than on the roads around the park, which is OK I suppose. The seasonal campers were quite friendly, but some trails through the unused wooded areas would be nice. On the positive side, it is convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park, so there are hiking opportunities there if you're willing to drive a bit. The sites were poorly graveled but reasonably level. Barely adequate for an overnight stay, but bring your earplugs. - A Frame

We called on the road to see if there was space but nobody answered the phone, nor called us back, so we decided to take a chance and drove in. It's a fairly small road from the freeway to the final part of the RV camp, and one should watch for traffic coming the other way. Also, a rather steep hill which is paved, marks the final approach to the valley. I was told there weren't any spots available long enough for us to pull through and not have to unhook our tow car, which we did. I thought the price of$43 which didn't include a sewer site was a bit high. the site was level and pretty, and very shaded, and my wife loved the most amazing thing about the RV park--the hundreds of rabbits that roam freely, and which you can feed. She calls it "bunnyville" and enjoyed the animals. There's a well stocked store there, as it's a long trip into town. We found the WiFi didn't work well, and cell service down in the valley was tough as well, so take note. We weren't able to get our dish up with Direct TV because of interference from all the trees. That morning, there was some rain, and it puddled up around the rv sites fairly quickly. I can't imagine in a heavy rain, how tough it would be with large wet areas. We stayed there in a 40 ft. motorhome. When we left, I was concerned about towing our car up the long hill, so we hooked up at the top. - elduque

First the positives: Beautiful scenic park with wooded sites near a river. If you're an animal lover; many, many adorable tame bunnies scampering around. Would be great to camp here with a tent or small/medium travel trailer.
And now why we wouldn't return: Very long, narrow, winding road to the park with many low hanging branches lining the street. Wreaked havoc with satellite and antennas on top of coach.
Only a handful of full hookup 50 amp sites. Takes a bit to get to them with no escort on crushed stone road with many potholes/divots. Pull thru site was barely wide enough to fit 35 ft motorhome since trees took up much of the space. Length wise we could barely fit coach with tow attached. Very close to neighbors but we've seen worse. Just barely able to extend all slides again due to trees. No internet; told they were having trouble with it.
Not worth the effort it took to get here. - Beachside Baby

My wife and I are a middle-aged couple who travel with our two dogs. We try to avoid KOAs and other similar campgrounds that have a lot of kids because we prefer solitude when camping. We never seem to be able to find a nice campground in Virginia, but this one was convenient on our way home from South Carolina so we decided to try it.
As we were trying to set up, kids kept riding their bikes and walking through our site, acting as if we weren't even there. After we finished setting up I noticed that a lot of campers used their trucks, toads, and picnic tables to try to prevent the kids coming through their sites, and we followed suit.
The internet didn't work while we were here, and our cable TV didn't work until we went to the office to complain and they sent someone out to fix it. Oh, and we had to walk to the office because no one ever answers the phone here. Of the four times we left a message with our call back number, we received one return call.
There is absolutely NO privacy in this campground - the sites are short and narrow, with nothing dividing the camping pads.
This being Virginia, you'll see all kinds of... "different" types of people here. We saw a young woman with a child in her lap riding a motortorized leather recliner around the campground (!) and another camper with their pet pig in a pen on their site (or maybe it was going to be their supper).
Oh, and there are LOTS of semi-tame rabbits running (hopping) around - we were told some bizarre story about how a camper released their pet rabbit here years ago, and since rabbits... well, you know... PROCREATE like rabbits, there has been a population explosion. So between the ill mannered kids - presumably raised by ill mannered parents - and rabbits... and barking dogs ... and being packed in like sardines...
This is one of the worst campgrounds we have ever visited, but if you have kids and don't mind a lack of privacy you'll probably like it as there are LOTS of activities. - gmanfan1966

This campground, in my opinion, looked like it was once a very nice campground. But now, it looks like it has fallen on hard times. About 60 sites, some have W/E/S. There was trash all over my site. I had to take a black plastic trash bag and filled it half way with trash.
There were two travel trailers on each side of me. Both were dirty, run down, had pieces missing and hoses, cables, trash and insulation strewn all around them. The sewer line at my site appeared to be 'full'. I should have left right then. But I didn't. The 30A connection was on a weathered log, had no front plate, no containment box, no cutoff switch and was exposed to the elements.
The one positive that I will say about this campground are that both of the employees that I dealt with were very nice, though they did not appear to agree with my observations, offer solutions nor apologize for the condition of the park. Unfortunately, I can't go back to this place nor can I recommend it to anyone else. - User3064

This campground is a diamond in the rough. The manager and maintenance man were both very friendly and helpful! This park was built 40+ years ago, with limited improvements but decent maintenance since. Consequently, big rig access is somewhat limited and may take some careful maneuvering. There are a few pull-through sites available, but getting a big rig into them may be a little dicey. The bathroom/shower facilities were clean but definitely show their age. There are a good number of long-termers here, but they were friendly and not rowdy. If you want to just kick back and relax, or want to visit the Culpeper area including any of the numerous wineries, this is a fine place to do it. - DB_Engineer

If you're camping in a tent or want to dry camp this would be rated a 8 or 9. Our 35ft 5th wheel was almost too big for the few electric sites available. No water or sewer available. I would advise the 35ft plus rigs to stay away. The bridge is very narrow but it looks like they are working on a new bridge. It's early but it looks promising for better access to the park. They offer tube/canoe service. The store is barely stocked but they do have basics. - Craig H

This is a small and simple riverfront campground. The main focus is the simple camping and the river, bring your tube or kayak! We dry camped at a river front site for $25.00 a night. Very large site, not level and no pad, but useable with the use of our bus jacks. Great to sit right on the river, fish,wade, and within walking distance is a canoe rental shop that runs trips on the river, to include transportation (this business is not part of the campground). The road here may be a challenge for large 40'+ motorhomes or big trailer rigs. There are some steep grades, tight turns, low trees, and the bridge is narrow but safe. We were fine and have a length of 33' and 12' overhead clearance. Campground overall is very suitable for tenting, small to mid size trailers and motorhomes. There are about 60 sites which are divided into three main areas. The first section includes about 5 sites that are pull through and have hookups. The second section of perhaps 20 sites runs along the riverbank of the Shenandoah River and puts you right on the river with very good sized sites; no hookups. The third section is a large field; no hookups. Roads are gravel. Staff was friendly and the office had a small store with the very basics. The restrooms/showers were clean when we looked, but we did not use them. - f.wernlein

It is apparently VA parks policy to not assign sites during reservation. When you arrive you are told to pick out an available site and report to the office site selected. This method requires 2 trips and inconvenience. Check-in staff were friendly. Interior roads and some site drives were paved. Most site drives were gravel. The sites are new and on a side of a hill. Interior roads are a little narrow to turn or back into sites, if you have a big rig. Take it slow and easy. Good amount of green space between sites. Trees are small, so little shade and they don't present a hazard. No Verizon cell service. Sat TV was easy to receive. Many water activities and zipline are nearby. - eaglessoc

We were on site 4 which is super unlevel for a diesel pusher, all tires were off the ground except for the rear driver's side. Site 2 also unlevel, rear tires off the ground. The rangers need to do a better job leveling the sites. Most sites looks level, but once you park a diesel pusher, you will notice that sites are unlevel. Checkout time of 3 PM is great. Power pedestal worked great this time. Water pump station noise in back of campground needs to be shielded with sound wall. - univmd

For a state park, this 4-year old campground was better than we expected. We loved the size of the sites and the separation between them. We were on the upper tier of sites (#2) where most, if not all, are pull-through sites. The sites' patios are staggered, so your next door neighbor isn't peering onto your patio when he looks out his window. The lower tier had mostly back-in sites, but were much closer to the river access points. I was a little disappointed in the access points, thinking they would be more user-friendly, but that's just me. The electric and water utilities were flawless. Satellite access in the upper tier was excellent. As noted before, cell phone service can be a challenge. The visitors' center has a Wi-Fi network that you can access while there. It's a bit of a hike to get there, or just drive as most do. Otherwise, you need to drive into Front Royal, about 8 miles away. Our camp host was a tent camper, and a very pleasant one at that. Overall, a great, relaxing, and quiet campground. - USMCRET

This is one of the few campgrounds within easy driving range of Charlottesville, VA (about 25 min. to the East). This CG is not far off I64, so its easy to find if arriving at night (as we did). This is a well run professional park with lots of staff to attend to the park and customers needs. Good services, nice store with LOTS of RV goodies. Topography: Its almost like two parks in one... You have the site areas near the office (which are basically on the flat fields), then then you have a road going out back into the woods and up a steep winding grade (and I do mean STEEP), to another collection wooded ridge sites atop this little mountain. We stayed near the road. All connections were adequate: AC power levels - good, water pressure fine, cable tv - umm, acceptable. Verizon: weak but fine. My site was far from level - front to back or left to right (which could have been fixed with a little grading work guys). Fellow campers there were all nice. Safe little place. The road out front of the CG is a small two lane highway. Its busy, and often filled with fast moving vehicles manned by seemingly quite impatient drivers - so use caution. Due to the surface of this highway, and the speed of the vehicles, there is quite a bit of road noise being blasted into the park (the road does thankfully quiet down some at night). The road noise became wearing after a few days...
Overall, a great place to stay, while you take in Monticello, or enjoy all that Charlottesville has to offer (which includes some great shopping). - Rogue Traveller

While this park has full amenities they are all in the lower section.
At $55 a night.
I took an electric and water only site in their upper section.
I had to pull in to a site sloping down hill, and could barely hookup to electric. I did not have enough hose to reach the water.
I can't wait to get out of Virginia. - Author

Well maintained CG. Combination paved and gravel roads. Gravel RV sites, mostly level and combination pull thru and back in sites. Sites are small, you can see what's for dinner in your neighbors RV. The CG was well planned, good location for water, electric and cable, just too many sites for the amount of area. WIFI was excellent, antenna TV has zero reception. Common bathrooms and showers were some of the best I've seen in CG's in a long time. Separate room with sink, toilet and shower, very very clean. CG store well stocked, customer service was very good. The only real negative is the close proximity of the sites. - Travel Talk

This is one of our very favorite campgrounds. We've always given it a 9 or 10 rating; unfortunately, this time we can not. The place is as nice & secluded & quiet as ever, even more so this time, as there were few campers. But the strangest things had to do with the volunteers, there seemed to be very little volunteer activity or presence; in fact, when the weekend campers left on Sunday morning, so did the volunteers, leaving their RV's in place. This gave me the impression that the locals were using the volunteer sites as a free summer long camp sites. There was certainly enough work to be done, as the place had the appearance of not being ready to open. A few problems; 1. No one on the gate, or even came around to see if you were registered. 2. The potable water fill had obviously been frozen & the valve was split,leaking badly, but I wouldn't put that water in my tank any ways as it more resembled chocolate milk. It apparently hadn't been flushed after the winter. 3. One of the 3 shower bldgs. had no hot water, another had NO water on the men's side, (hot or cold). 4. The bathrooms in the picnic & beach areas weren't even unlocked. The hikes around the area were as great as ever, & the pond & lake were beautiful as always. We will be back, but hope they get things taken care of. - bukhrn

This was our 2nd trip to this national forest campground; it certainly will not be our last. Our site was pretty level & wide. We love this fully wooded, quiet & peaceful place. It is truly unfortunate that Trout Pond itself is drained, but Rock Cliff Lake is as beautiful as ever. As said previously, if you're looking for somewhere with a lot to do, (other than nature) this may not be the place for you. The roads into the area are narrow, hilly, & winding, but completely do-able with a little common sense. The bathrooms & showers are clean & functional. While there is not an actual pool, there is a very nice sandy swimming area at the lake. There is a nice picnic area & playground. - bukhrn

I have camped here since I was little. I have always enjoyed coming over here as everyone is very nice and friendly. Bathrooms are clean! Sites are well spaced and in private area. Very secluded place. Great place to swim in pond. Very clean beach area with grassy area to sit away from sand. Tent area has small gravel, great for tent camping. Great play area for kids with a volley ball net to play. Lights out is strickly enforced along with gate closing after hours. Someone always available to help you if needed. Very cheap rates, a great value! - mom3

Warning: Read all reviews. I will add to what was not stated. First a very narrow rough dirt road entrance in a bad spot in the highway. The 82 year old owner was rude and greedy. Wanted extra $3.00 For the towed. Once she found out our holding tanks were near full she refused to let us use her dump station. Said she had just had her septic pumped and didn't want it filled up again. Not to mention a strong odor of alcohol as we conversed. She did agree to give us a refund. We would not recommend this park to anyone. - arlin

So much potential...shaded sites, quiet stream. And then there was the nasty lady who runs the place and the trashy appearance of the campground itself. When we arrived there was one other camper already there. We were placed right next to them - no option for moving to a more secluded site. Owner/host never got out of her chair when we arrived. Never a friendly wave or 'hello'. Just give me your money - park over there. Campsite wasn't very level, filled with trash and cigarette butts. There was even a sign at the office encouraging campers to burn trash in the campfire. A bit of traffic noise but the deal breaker was the trash and host. We won't be back. - Doneitall

My wife and I have a small class C. We decided to stay here based on the review and the Web site. When we arrived we noticed garbage and leftover food all over a table outside the office, There was so much junk we had to walk around the patio to get to the office. On our way to the office an older lady came out of a trailer beside the office. We asked for a full hookup. She quoted $27 for a mostly grass pad. Then stated that it was a backin. I said ok, we will unhook the towed. She said in that case it would be an extra $3. I said no thanks and left. On our way out we looked at the sites. We are glad we passed this one by. - afundaburk

We are owners and keep our motor home at Skyline Ranch Resort all summer except when we are traveling. We love being there in our "second home." We do not use the facilities as we have our own bathroom and shower. The resort has improved a lot over the last few years. Swimming pool is amazing. The chalets are very nice and cabins are rustic. The dog park is the best in any campground where we have stayed and we have visited many. We travel with two dogs. We have a level site that is long with a nice view of the pool and next to the ice cream parlor. If we have this site next year, we will add sod. - Margie S Heiler

Under normal circumstances, I am a travel trailer camper. My stay at this "resort" was in a cabin, but I looked at the facility with the experienced eyes of a rv camper. I found the site sizes to be average. The roads were tighter and more narrow and looked to be an issue with bigger rigs. I did walk to one of the shower houses....DISMAL! Very outdated looking and had not been cleaned in several days as there was a large, dried fecal smudge on the floor that had animal tracks in it and there were black shoe prints all over the floor. No effort had been made to mop or clean anything. The added fees for use of the ATM were outrageous. And if you want a scoop of ice cream be prepared to part with an arm and a leg...$3.49 for a single scoop. And based on the scoop size, you'd think they were scooping gold bouillon. I was actually glad that we didn't have our camper, but also sad that I had to stay in one of the disgusting "rustic" cabins. "Rustic" translates into very small, extremely filthy, outdated space. Not sure who they keep around as the cleaning crew, but they must be visually impaired and have no olfactory sense. There were visible cobwebs and spiders in every room. I did not get the shower curtain closed well enough and some water splashed out on the floor. I made a visibly clean spot on the dirty linoleum just by rubbing my foot around with a wet paper towel. The steps on the front of the cabin were loose and rotting. The maintenance crew came to "fix" the step, which consisted of an inadequate patch to prop up the sagging corner. I pity the fool who spends hard-earned money to rent this dump then has the misfortune of being the person to fall through the steps and then pay a doctor office co-pay for a tetanus shot. I see no reason on this earth to ever go to this place again. - LRDavis

We, myself,son-his girlfriend and my 7,6,2 year old grand daughters camped for the first time at Front Royal RV Campround this past weekend Aug 15-17. The campground didn't fit the description on their website- the hot tub was broken, bath house closed where we were camping, other one was by the office at the opposite end of the campground. Site was small and uneven. There weren't any activities for the girls and there were no other children to be seen, campground had lots of open sites for a weekend stay. For adults only it would be very quiet. We were disappointed and will not stay there again. - grandma2girls

We stayed there a single night as we were passing by. The main attraction was that the owners were willing to allow late-night check-in. The sites were far from level, but we did OK with our auto-leveler in our 37 foot rig. 50 amp power was OK. There was a pool, but we really didn't check anything out. The store had the basics, but some things had no prices, so the owner just made something up (though not unreasonable). - Brian Gould

Staying here was very expensive. Directions were not given clearly. Had to turn around and damaged truck in process. Site was located in the old previously private campground area which is not suitable for a 42' 5th wheel. While trying to maneuver on the narrow tight corners with all the foliage we also had our tv antenna ripped off. Had I known that the resort had bought this area and that's where they were putting us I would not have booked. We had stayed there 2 times before in the front rv sites. - rrstantiques

There is horseback riding for an additional fee at the campground. There are hiking trails, mini golf, pool area, game room including ping pong and pool tables. Laundromats are available throughout the camping area. WiFi works if you are in the right campsite. - Just Jammin

As with many KOAs this one is older, crowded and just OK. It's a fairly small RV park with gravel sites that are sortof level. The sites are close together and pretty small overall.
We generally avoid KOAs as they are generally subpar overall in our opinion. But this KOA was the closest to Charlottesville.
Even though it's "closest" it's still a good 6 miles south of town. It's on a small twisty road with dozens of off-camber turns - fun in a sports car, no fun in a motor home.
You'd think in a city the size of Charlottesville you'd at least have good cell service - but not here. "No Service" with ATT and only 1 to 2 bars with Verizon. And since the KOA's Wifi was so unreliable and no cell broadband it was pretty internet unfriendly.
The final mark against this place is the Men's Bath/Shower. There is only one - it had 3 toilet stalls and 3 shower stalls. That's it. So, in a park full of maybe 120 people you have a men's rooms without even any urinals to accommodate more than 3 men at a time. This resulted in long lines at the bathroom every day.
I've stayed in worse KOA's but cannot call this one a bright spot in the KOA system. - Creativepart

This is a very plain Jane park with only a few sites that all back to the river. Pads are gravel, barely. We arrived in the early afternoon to find no one at the office. We asked someone that was a seasonal camper and he had no idea what we should do. The signage said to call a number and not to pull into a site. We called and two hours later still no return call. We went ahead and picked a site, anyway. Finally someone, not the manager, came by and took our payment although we could not use our credit card as was stated on the web site. The water was also very brown even after running the water for a minute after hooking up. We only stayed overnight although we had planned on a 3 night stay. - HRambler

Maybe just the first 6 sites have 50amp service. The rest are 30amp with some sewer hookups. All have water and all back up on a bank on the Shenandoah River. There is a boat ramp and apparently deep water with a little current that had me concerned about launching a kayak. We had to use 2x6's under the front tires to level and the soft ground absorbed about half of the boards under the jacks of our diesel pusher. The WiFi was strong and fairly fast. About half the sites seem to be seasonal. - Juandering

This campground is off Rt. 66, and there are signs on the highway and off to direct you. We've stayed here twice for a night. It is basically a large grassy area with a line of sites on the Shenandoah River and treed. There is a boat ramp and fishing in the river. Very peaceful and clean. Picnic tables and fire rings. You pick your spot and the owner comes around in the AM for payment. Seem to be some seasonals, but lots of sites available. - poodlecamper

The park is beautiful and well maintained. Some sections are quite hilly. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. The sites are somewhat narrow but certainly a big improvement over some of the KOA's we've been too -- plenty of room for slides and awnings. Some of the premium sites are really beautiful, containing a large deck looking out over the hills. For the hilltop sites be prepared for a narrow, twisty road up to them, but navigating our 37 foot RV was no problem. If you're towing I really recommend you unhook at the bottom of the hill outside the office. My main complaint was what they call "tandem" sites - a long, long site with 2 sets of hookups so 2 RV's can pull in tail to nose. We were literally inches from our neighbor. Our neighbors were very nice but considering the cost I did not care for this arrangement. We might return but I would definitely specify a different type of site arrangement. - Jeepman Texas

Good signage and easy to get there. It's actually located closer to Stuart's Draft than Staunton. Huge KOA with a good dog park. Friendly staff and a couple of local restaurants deliver to the campground. Only negative was that once you pull up to register you have passed the overnights only area and have to drive around a small loop to go past the office and get into the overnight area. There is no right turn to get out and you have to go left past the office and take the short loop again so that you can get out.
We stayed here one night on our way back and everything was as before. - Mr. Camper

We stopped overnight here in a 43 ft. Class A Motorhome. It is a nice campground with spacious pull-through sites that allowed us to stayed hooked up to the tow. The pull-through sites have water & electric but no sewer. There is a dump station in the campground. The roads in the campground are narrow with some tight turns but we were able to maneuver without too much trouble. It is about 3 miles off I-81 and we followed our GPS directions here which had us use exit 213A and we decided after arriving that it would have been an easier route to take the directions on the campground website which would have been at exit 217. We will return when in the area and try to take in some of the area attractions. - John & Bobbie

No one answered the phone and no sign of owners or management, but did speak to a cleaning lady who couldn't assist In any way. Roads rutted, causing tow vehicle to drag. Had to drive over fire pit to get into/out of site. Lots of long term campers in the park. Has LOTS so potential but looks like owners may have given up. Don't know how it's rating manages to be so high. But! Convenient to I-81 for overnighting on the north-south migration route. Smaller rigs would be much happier here.

This is one of those parks that could be a real gem if it wasn't full of full-timers with rundown trailers and barking dogs. There are new managers recently as of september, and they are working to clean the place up. Very friendly folks. The area isn't a vacation destination, so I imagine that parks in this area have to allow full-timers in order to make a living. However, having some rules in place and enforcing them would make things better. Pros: Close to main highway, good water pressure, long spots with plenty of room on the sides, pretty creek running through park. Cons: Busy road right next to park, full-timers with rundown trailers and barking dogs, our power surge protector was constantly flashing red letting us know that the power source wasn't steady, dirt spots and very muddy due to recent rain. I think the new managers are on the right track with this campground, but I don't know if they plan on cleaning up the clientele of the park at all. It worked for a couple nights stay so we could go into DC for a day. - Salina

Manager was very helpful and knowledgeable of the campground. Lot of things for kids and adults to do including a bouncing pillow and water trampoline. A lot of permanent trailers was in the back section of the campground that could use some tidying up which is why I gave it a 9. - Biggyrat

Roads are gravel, sites are gravel and very level. Some out in the open, some in shade. Owners are on site through out the day and very pleasant and helpful. Lots for kids and adults to do. They have boat rentals, miniature golf, large size chess set, horseshoes, bounce balloons, playground equipment, just to name a few. The store is organized and reasonable priced. The sites are a bit close, but all our neighbors were quiet and considerate. There are a lot of permanent units, mostly newer and nice looking. One section has a lot of older run down units, but they are in the back. We will come again. - esta34950

I guess we got lucky again. Our site Yellow 14, was spacious and level, requiring no leveling blocks whatsoever. In fact we have stayed in this park several times and never had an issue. Some of the seasonal sites did appear to slope quite a bit though. The staff at Small Country are very friendly, and they go to great lengths to plan activities for their guests. This time is was Christmas in July. In any case, our gravel site was well shaded. All utilities worked well with the exception of the WiFi. Perhaps I was too far away from the AP, but even with my booster antenna I was unable to acquire an IP address. Verizon bailed us out once again though. We have stayed here often and will do so again. - Airstreamers

This is a fairly nice park, once you pass through the area of rundown mobile homes prior to the entrance, as mentioned previously. It is located about 30 miles from Romney, WV, where the Potomac Eagle train trip originates. It's about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the beautiful Blackwater Falls State Park. The full hookups include strong water and 50 amp service. Sites have fire pits, but no picnic tables, and they do sell firewood at the office. The Verizon signal was very weak, so we were thankful for the fast and reliable Wi-Fi they provided. Most of the short-term sites are on a level, gravel lot with good spacing between sites. There are a lot of permanent dwellers here, but their lots are clean and nicely landscaped. There is a nice walking trails that circles the campground and goes down by the river. Roads in the park are gravel, and there was a very low-hanging tree at the entrance that needed to be trimmed. I mentioned this to the manager and he claimed the state needs to cut it and should be out soon to do it. We were very busy on this stop and did not get a chance to check out the bathrooms or showers. Grocery stores and the nicest laundromat I've ever used can be found in the town of Moorefield, which is about 6 miles away. The staff was friendly and helpful. The remote location made this a very quiet place to stay. - LowesTravels

A little out of town. Semi nice drive along the river. At the end of the road, prior to the RV park, a lot of run down mobile homes. Rather scary looking, but no problems. In hindsight, wish we had stayed in town at Wal-Mart. I would not stay again. - goldsp8

The previous posts all have valid points. However, there are a lot of good things about this campground also. I did some investigating and talked to a lot of the seasonal campers. The park is gradually making a lot of improvements. Electrical service was upgraded throughout the campground over the past couple of years. The wifi is being upgraded (I got really fast service). Sites are being upgraded with fresh gravel. Sites are big for the most part. The lake is nice and the mini- golf is scheduled for rebuild next spring. They serve dinner and breakfast on the weekends. Food is very good and plentiful. Definitely a transitional state right now. Yes, very predominately seasonal campers, but they are very friendly. The entry road is rough, but the campground tries to maintain it at their expense although it is a county road. It was just graded when we arrived, but a big thunderstorm washed a lot of gravel out the next day. Not a "high class" resort, but we would stay here again. Would rate it higher as more improvements are made. - boatto5er

This park has about 98% of full timers or seasonal full timers. The 2% left are people who forgot to read the RV park review before making a reservation. The last 1/2 mile is on a road that is literally disintegrating. The road in their park is just as bad.
Women's restroom was OK, but men's was never cleaned or restocked in our 4 day stay. Since the park caters to long timers there appears to be no rules as to what or how much stuff you can have at your site. Refrigerators, patios bigger than the RV, furniture, and garden gnomes are prolific. Many have fenced in their property so they can keep their overflowing stuff safe. They do not offer a Good Sam discount. No Wi-Fi and no cable. The sites are incredibly un-level and do not get cleaned between campers or forever by the looks of it. The lady that checked us in at 1:30pm had PJs on. On Saturday they had a live band at their pond/beach which lasted until 11:30pm. You didn't need to attend to hear it from all ends of this huge park. We won't be back. - Dmuecke

Was here for only one night which was OK. Upon arriving we were given a back-in site in which we were told was gravel topped but it had landscaping bark instead...not acceptable for leveling. Staff was able to move us to a different site and was able to fit OK. Roads inside campground are tight as well as spaces. Lots of full timers. Beach area and lake looked nice but not impressed with the RV sites. Road leading into park is a terrible road for driving down. According to office it's the county's fault not theirs. Thought price was high for the type of campground and RV site we had. No satellite service with all the trees, but full hookups with 50 amps. - monkeyandbanzi

The sites here are well spaced with a good layout. There were a few buddy camp sites, as well as pull through. Overall the campground is very tent oriented. We had a back in site that was a little tight, requiring me to pull the hood of the truck under the nose of our 5er to be clear of the road. Satellite reception might be possible with a carryout dish, but no chance with a roof mounted dish in most of the spaces. **This campground is located within the National Radio Quiet Zone, a 13,000 square mile area with severe radio restrictions to protect the Green Bank radio telescope and the Naval observatory. Don't expect cell service, hotspots or ota TV reception here. The nearest 4G signal I found was 20 miles north in Cabins, WV which is also the nearest staffed post office... which closes at 2pm daily. - Thorfinn

The number of "numbered" campsites is only about 38. However, there are other spaces for groups, which would make the number larger than it appears. Great Forest Service campground. This was our first time camping there and we will be going back. Nice back-in sites, kind of close, but all are equipped with fire ring, table and pad for tents or screen rooms. motorhomes, travel trailers or pup tents sit on asphalt. Campground is close to Seneca Rocks and other natural attractions. May be difficult for some to get to, since it is kind of off the beaten path and not close to any large cities or towns. - DaGrinch

We camped here for 3 nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. Absolutely stunning scenery, very well laid out campground. We were in Loop C, and as we were there in the middle of the week, had very few neighbors. The last night we were there, the campground was starting to fill up, but although we could see our fellow campers, we didn't feel like we were cramped, due to the layout of the campground. The site sizes are extremely varied, from small tent sites to very large pull throughs. We made non-site specific reservations, and upon our arrival, one of the campground hosts, Peggy, picked a perfect site for us. She and her husband, Dean, are terrific! Everything in the campground is absolutely immaculate. They ride through the campground several times a day, checking in, delivering firewood, and making sure "their campers" are okay and having a good time. The bath houses were in the process of being painted while we were there, and were spotless. There were pretty silk flowers in the ladies side, just a nice touch, I thought. We loved this campground, and will be back! - happytraillady

Sites were very small and had a severe slope. Dirt sites, no gravel. One shower facility with 3 showers for a 200 campsites. Second bath house had no hot water and was very dirty. No fire ring. I had to go searching for large rocks to make a fire ring. Dump station was overflowing. Dog droppings all over the place. I wouldn't stay here ever again. - GoLittleGuy

Super crowded over memorial day weekend - to be expected - playground very packed all weekend. I met some nice people there though. The boat launch is available for 10 dollars for the whole weekend. They have a small swim area on lake for the kids - crowded, but still okay - fairly safe. Sites for non-seasonal are a little too small for campers longer than 25 or so feet. Our friends could not open their awning and one guy across from us had to stick out in the road to open his slide out. I had a golf cart and since I am handicap and had proof, it was allowed. another fellow was told to put his cart back on his truck without handicap proof. I don't know what their issue is with gold carts. the staff use them and I saw the lady who owns it driving around on one too. My mom had to pay $5 a day to visit, and her truck was hit in the over fill parking lot - of course no one left a note to claim responsibility. We had sewer, but could not hook up to it because of the position of our camper on the site. We had to angle it so we did not stick out in the road. Sites are kind of crappy when it comes to length and width. we do plan to return for labor day because it is a good place to launch our boat, close to my son's home, and we are meeting friends there, but we reserved a spot on a hill in the open so we won't have problems fitting our 40 foot travel trailer in the spot. There are a ton of seasonal sites, some very old campers, but the sites are actually well kept even though campers are old. They had activities like music each holiday weekend night. They had a nice stocked store. I went night fishing; caught a lot of catfish. If you like people, boats, water, kids, nice people, lots of activities, this campground is for you. - Tinkielynn

Gravel sites, not terrible, but be sure to bring lots of lumber for leveling. The sites are pretty doggone tight. The bathrooms and showers were reasonably clean, most of the time. We really liked the little beach area for the grandson. Biggest complaint was the water service. They did some maintenance work while we were there and didn't bother to notify anyone that the water would be turned off. When it was turned back on, it flowed absolutely black for a while. If it was me, I'd let people know. - myway2rv

We enjoyed our stay at this campground-twice. This campground is a smaller campground located in woods. The road to get there is very winding and hilly. After checking in at a store that had very good inventory, parking, and even hot food available, we found that the level sites were a bit rougher than other campgrounds and although we had a 28ft. fifth-wheel, there was only one or two sites that could accommodate that size. Most were smaller campers. The sites were neither graveled nor paved, but each had a fire ring. Electrical hookups were 30-amp. There were a few pull-throughs. It was a very quiet campground with one clean bathhouse as well as an outdoor field hydrant-useful for cleaning feet or fish. One of the best features was a large pond/lake good for kayaking or canoeing. There is also a separate pond for fishing. The campground is close to Crabtree Falls, which is a wonderful nearby hike to beautiful waterfalls. Management was most helpful and a friendly camp host came by each day to make sure all was well and to help anyone needing it, as well as pick up trash. Our camping friends liked it and would go back again. - notahappycamper-1

Killer drive 12 miles up a steep mountain, and killer drive down (we had to stop to let our brakes cool). Our MH is a mini so not too heavy. It was also raining so it was dark when we finally got here. Only one other site occupied. Beautiful right beside the river with lots of trees. Best for outdoors types. Too far off highway for overnight. - MovableBookLady

Beautiful location and very close to the trail head for Crabtree Falls. We arrived Thursday night and were the only campers. By Friday afternoon, the campground was full. Sites are narrow and not level. The two travel trailers next to us had a lot of trouble getting into their sites. The river-front tent sites are beautiful. There is a small playground and a run-down, indoor arcade with some children's toys. The staff is very friendly. The bathrooms were cleaned daily, but had lots of bugs and cobwebs. - CampSmithVA

Nice new park with wide paved campground roads with both back in and pull through sites. Bath house was like new and in the style of newly renovated VA State Parks. Laundry facilities provided in one of the two bath houses. RV sites were large, well separated, and generally level but still needed blocking to level our RV. Some pull through sites were runoff rutted. Plan to arrive early to pick your best unoccupied site. Lots of trails to hike. Camped mid week and only two of the 23 RV sites occupied. Will definitely be back. - HR52

Very nice, newer State Park. 50% disabled veteran discount (very appreciated). Sites have good water and electric, and the dump site is clean and well kept (no sewer at camp sites). Situated next to lovely Lake Anna. Probably very busy in summer, so you may have to reserve. - Travelin' Harrells

Super nice state park complete with hiking, fishing, etc., and even inexpensive laundromat services. Can't ask for much more except maybe a lower rate. At $32 a night for W/E I just about croaked! Staff says it's super busy in summer but during fall we were only 1 of 4 or so campers. The camp hosts were also exceptionally nice. - LiveWorkDream
