When we checked in, we showed our Passport America card and were informed that they didn't have any PA spots available. There was no indication on the PA description that spaces were limited. However, he did give us a mild discount of some sort anyway. Maybe Good Sam or AAA? I get the impression that this is a one-man show. Not all was in the best of repair, but it looked as though he was working hard to, perhaps, catch up. The cabooses were a cool touch, but need sprucing up on the outside. We didn't go in any of them. The place was decked out for Halloween. They had a haunted trail to walk through. They do hayrides. Lots of trees! - FloridaWanderers

This campground provides one of the most peaceful and relaxing camping trips for us so far this year.The site was very spacious and fairly level - there was a charcoal grill as well that was newer. This, however, is not a campground that will keep children occupied and there is limited activities for them, even during the height of the summer. The staff was very friendly and nice. There is a part of the campground that has some long term sites but it was not very close to where our site was. There are also several cabooses that can be rented out -they looked interesting. There was also good antenna reception for the TV. The bathrooms were just male/female single toilets next to each other. We did not use the showers and the pool was already closed. Water pressure was good and even had a good taste to it. We would go back there again. - dadseven

the park is easy to get to but the interior roads are gravel and in horrible condition ( even though there is a tractor with a front bucket parked by the office ). Very shady, no satellite. Lots of permanents. We were here to visit friends. Next time we will boon dock if necessary rather than return to this park. - loneranger

Friendly check-in, easy to find and setup on site, and while dirt/gravel generally level. Staff came by a few hours later to confirm we were "happy campers" and since power, water, cable, and sewer connections were as expected we enjoyed our weekend stay. - Cabin270

Great wooded campground. Loved our stay. Nice clean shower and laundry well maintained. have a stock store and they sell propane. The owners and the staff of work campers are helpful and friendly. Can't wait to come back in June for a two-week stay. We love coming in October for there Halloween Haunt makes for a great weekend lots of good things going on in this campground during year. They have full hookups including cable TV. One of my favorite campgrounds. See you in June. - Jim Daniel

We came in March. We arrived late after office closed, and left the next morning before office opened. (The registration material was left for us.) Very few others in campground, but still had a security gate. Shower okay. Nice area to walk dogs. Lot spacing was spacious and mostly shady. Site surface was gravel. - FrankRogers

Horrible. That's all I should write. Right next to the highway so come mornings it was loud with trucks/traffic. You'll only be able to use the big pool if they decide to staff lifeguards that day. If not, only their family can use it. That's hard to explain to your kids dressed and ready to swim when you get to the gate. Unprofessional! Yes - the regular pool was OK for the kids but when you see the big pool right there but can't go in, it stinks. Bathroom/Shower - really dirty. Cobwebs everywhere. Doors don't lock for stalls. Bought firewood at the "store" - damp. Wouldn't burn. Hmmmm...what else....save your time and money. Find another campground! We're avid campers so not picky. Tells you how bad it was. Never again. - Unhappy Camper1

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

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

A friend & I stayed there a few days in May in a small RV to hike. There are numerous, well marked, trails accessible from the campgrounds, including the A.T. The view from the amphitheater is breath taking . There is no water or electricity at the sites, but there is water available to fill your tanks (free, and it is very good water!). The bathrooms were well kept and clean, as were the grounds. I look forward to returning there. Golden Pass card afforded us 1/2 off...I really appreciate that! - Linda 2

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

Typical National Park campground, lots of nature, very quiet, spacious sites with fire rings and picnic tables. Most sites are not level, and very few are long enough for larger rigs. Campground roads are narrow, which makes backing in difficult, even if the site is long enough. No cell coverage. - Loki

Great campground. I always see black bears at Loft Mountain. The NPS staff can be hateful and rude at times. Camp store is awesome. Weekends are full of folks from Northern VA who evidently have no concept of controlling their children. - InTooDeep

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

Arrived in the dark, site was easy enough to find though. Site was just barely long enough for our 22ft trailer and extended cab regular bed truck. This site offered a bit of buffer from neighboring sites which was great. Bathrooms were clean. Nice location for accessing different areas of the park. One dump station for the whole CG, could be a hassle on busy weekends. - TCNG

I stayed here two midweek nights to hike some trails on the 100th birthday of the NPS (August 25). The campground was not full, but reservation tags on the site posts implied that the campground would be full over the weekend. The campground was very orderly and quiet. I had brought a small generator but, not hearing any other generators, went without. Site was shallow and dropped down sharply but I was able to level the trailer by lowering the tongue substantially. I saw no big rigs and think many sites wouldn't be large enough. Wildlife abounds here; saw 4 bears up close in 2 days, and too many nearby deer in the campground to count. There are no hookups, no wi-fi, and my Verizon phone had no service. Single dump station for the entire campground. The fee shown reflects the 50% discount for the federal senior pass. I'd stay here again when in the area. - Jay Rutherford

Typical National Park campground, lots of nature and space around the sites, but no hookups and few sites are long enough for big rigs. Roads are narrow, making it difficult to back in with a long trailer. No cell coverage in the campground. - Loki

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

Camp is rather rundown and seems to be populated by full-time residents. No real amenities beyond a minimal swing set. Rusty water and filthy bathhouse. However, it was quiet. - guamaniac

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

Pull through site, fairly level but slightly higher in front making it more difficult to level. The staff was terrific, couldn't help more. The dog park was a little smaller than other KOA's we've been to, but it was certainly adeqate. The pool looked green, but it had been closed since Labor Day.
I would camp here again. - DebDon

Our site was a long, level pull through with some shade. All roads are gravel as are the sites. Some sites could use some more gravel but overall not bad. Staff was helpful and friendly. Saw the chickens but they were not a problem. Utilities were good including the cable. Bathrooms and laundry were in good shape. - MarkandMarty
Jul 2016 - $55.00
No WiFi and no hot spot. Chickens were allowed to free range thru out campsites, so watch where you step, even at your own door. Paid $55 a night, felt like I was overcharged. - billl2099
Oct 2016 - $77.00
Very high end facility with good services except for the Wifi. Virtually non existent which should not be the case for the price. This is a membership resort; however, anyone paying a membership should expect better Wifi.
Sites are spacious and include a grill. Quite area well out in the country, but only a 20 - 30 minute drive to Charlottesville. - Our V World

97 degrees and no shade! There weren't any trees around and we had asked for a site with shade. It was an unlevel, cement slab. There was a grill and a table with 4 chairs.
Thought the price was quite high, but they were the only accommodations we could get at the time. - har-fl

We have been camping here for ten years. In those years we have seen the new campsites, yurts and some cabins built as well as the general store and two pools.
Many of the reviewers have mentioned coming into the park in the dark. Just don't do it. It is true, in the dark the road signs are hard to read. Easy to do in daylight.
Poor internet is the biggest drawback to this park but using our booster works well.
We have often told other RVers that this is one of our favorite parks ever as a family who has camped for 30 years. What we have seen during our July 2016 stay is that cut corners in service and maintenance are showing. I still recommend staying for the large, well-equipped sites, the views and the amenities. - 12858

MM accommodated our last minute need for a one night stay. Site was pretty nice as we backed up to a small creek. Service was fine as well.
However, the camp must have had a rowdy weekend just before we arrived as the grounds were pretty beaten up from the big entertainment tents and large crowd. Mud rather than grass. I doubt we would stay again at MM. - mrgolf

The park has very tight spaces and the sites are close together. Sites are also lightly graveled and muddy.
The owner has an attitude and is arrogant and argumentative. We asked him why he charged us when we made the reservation for one night and he said that is the way it is. He was rude to my wife. Overnight only.. - johnmack

Very nice campground, albeit a tad pricey. Easy access off I-64, exit 107. Paved interior roads, with gravel sites. There are two sections of the campground; upper and lower. We stayed in the upper section. As others have said, it's a steep road going to the upper section. We had no problems as our motorhome is only 24' long. Big-rigs might have a tough time negotiating the upper section. The bathrooms and showers in the upper section are the cleanest we've ever seen. Absolutely spotless. Free cable TV works fine, as does the free wi-fi. We had a full hookup site, and everything worked as expected. A 12-noon checkout time lets late risers sleep in if desired. We really enjoyed our stay here, and we've added Misty Mountain campground to our list of "go-to" places to stay. - tomnorman457
