A beautiful setting tucked in the Virginia Shenandoah area. Staff was super nice and accommodating. Everything was clean, well laid out, and pet friendly. Really enjoyed walking the lake and trails. - Wigglelock

We stayed two nights and just showed up so we parked in the front which is not in view of the huge pond. The pond is beautiful and enjoyed walking around it and up the hill to the top of the CG. The dog park is large and fenced in nicely. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Nice park; well run, well maintained, nice dog park, very nice staff. We stayed in site 28 on the lake--utilities worked fine, very good water pressure. The lake sites are close and short, requires parking your tow vehicle/toad along side. This would be fine but if the sites sites across the street are occupied (90-98), it makes for very tight quarters. Sites 107-111 and 52-63 are nice, but appear to be mostly seasonal residents. The overlook site has a nice view. Site 33 is the best site on the lake; 88 and 64-80 are nice as well. Lots of non-full hookup options. - LeslieGary

Nice, new park. Gravel pull-through site was just slightly off level and widely separated from neighbors.
Great service, information folder, cable TV, Wi-Fi, campstore and onsite snack bar/grill. Lot spacing was spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel and features a picnic table. - AL RVer

Stopped for one night on a holiday weekend and got one of the last few sites which happened to be full hookup. Sites are quite close to the neighbors with some trees but no underbrush so no privacy. Gravel site was level and our particular site was shorter than most but adequate for our rig. Staff was very friendly and helpful. And of course the bunnies were really cute! - CaneyFork

New owner, who understands camping, reopened after being closed several years. Major overhauled utilities, leveling of sites, new gravel and restrooms. Very impressed with what has been achieved in first year reopened. Owner/mgr very accommodating and helpful. Club rallye enjoyable and members do want to return next year. Only down side for some was no wifi this year, but assured it would be available next year. Our grandchildren loved the playground at our site as well as going to the lake recreation area. Expecting great things in future years with owners plans over 3 years upgrade. - mrfoto

For the price paid to camp this place is junky. The sites not well maintained and the bathhouse dirty. The best thing about this place is the swimming lake, the kids love it. (water cold) The owners need to update the campground, roads, and playgrounds. - zeppy35

We stayed here for two nights, a Thursday and Friday. Lots of 'liveaboards' and seasonal RV occupation which results in few choices for those travelling through looking for a spot for a night or two. Party erupted right next to us on the Friday night and despite our complaints to the office, basically went on till well after quiet time.
Not a place we would return to; just unpleasant with lots of trailer 'stuff' left here and there when no one occupying the sites. Water sites seemed somewhat permanently occupied with sections gated off with 'No Trespassing' signs on the fencing despite the office 'looking over the sites available' and telling us 'well, there's no spots open on the water at the moment' as if RVs came and went on a daily basis on the water sites.
Just not what their ad made it look like. Just bypass this one until things improve, but I guess their money comes from semi or permanent site occupants. - Nabob

This is just my second day here and unfortunately based on the more positive reviews elsewhere (shame on me) I paid for a month, needing to be in the area for a couple weeks. I should have noticed how long ago those reviews were written. Not only is the park full of full timers (not seasonal recreation users) but management allows them to turn their areas into junk yards---many do---and unfortunately, right across from my door is somebody's junk yard for me to look at every time I go out. There were barking dogs last night and this morning with their owners yelling at them to shut up-- but apart from that it is quiet--so far. I am staying here after the end of the season (November) and many of the summer folks have covered their units (or not) and have left. I can only imagine what it must be like in the summer. The sites are all back-ins and mine was quite uneven, requiring levelers on one side. I write this review early in my stay to warn others who at this moment may be considering a stay here--if you need an overnight stay it might be OK but it is so far out of the way from the highway it would hardly be worth the trouble. On the positive side, the WiFi is good and the nights are pleasingly dark--no artificial light. The hookups were in convenient locations and easy to hook up. The rate I cited is based on what I paid at the monthly rate. - nanzhere

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

Overall a good campground. The sites could use some TLC but it appears the owners are taking care of things. The bathhouse was being repainted inside and the grass was trimmed. The sites are in need of some updating. Some leveling and new gravel would help. Some sites have the water and electric on the wrong side as ours did. The sewer was located on the correct side. There is no cable but we could get TV over the air. Satellite may be a problem as there are many trees. The shade was nice as the temperature was in the low 90's. There are many long term residents but they seem to keep their sites neat. - MarkandMarty

Gravel sites but mainly level. Many seasonals who keep their sites very nice but some permanents do not. Three dumpsters which after awhile are over-flowing. Some activities. This is an old-style homey campground. Staff was very nice and friendly. - UMP

This campground is mostly occupied by permanent and seasonal campers. Roads are paved but campsites are gravel. Sites are adequate and did require a little leveling. Noise is a big favor here. As others have noted there is a lot of road noise from 340; there is a rail line close; and Eastside Speedway is very close. While we were here there was a lot of target shooting in the back of the campground where the permanent sites are located. And the trash was picked up at 4:49 AM...not one but three Dumpsters! As far as staff is concerned, I can't attest to their status since I only saw one person at check-in during our 4 night stay. They have a nice size field for the kids to play; swings; pool; basketball court and horseshoes. Parents: watch children as speed of vehicles is a favor here. - User738

This is a beautiful county park between Shenandoah National Park and Geo Washington National Forest. The spaces are really large but not well marked and people park every which way. The signs directing one way traffic within the park aren't very well marked, either. If it's rained or is wet, be prepared for some standing water in the roads and some of the spaces.
The bathrooms need a good cleaning. One of the doors was broken in the women's and the whole thing just felt dirty.
The park has lots of grassy areas, a decent sized swimming pool, playground, bb court, a good number of trees, the natural chimneys rock formations and it was very quiet. Our site had a 50 amp hookup and we needed the long hose for water due to the way the campers next to us were parked. Sewage wasn't marked well. All in all, we would definitely stay here again or recommend it because it was quiet, clean and had spacious sites. - lkc4052

We stayed at the park a week. We were just about the only ones there until the weekend. The sites are not well-defined and people park every which way, which when I made reservations I was told I could pull in however I wanted. The electric is a shared pedestal with a 50 amp and a 30 amp plugin. We barely had enough cord to reach it (which is probably why people park horizontal in the site. It was a FHU site and everything worked well. It rained while we were there and we had a lake at the entry to our site. Had to use 4x4 to get into site. Had good satellite coverage, but no AT&T. Verizon MIFI signal was minimal. There is lots of hiking trails and the chimneys and play areas are good. There are no trash receptacles and the only time I went into the restrooms people had put their trash in there. I guess you are supposed to put you trash out by the road and they'll pick it up, although there is nothing telling you that. The office was only open on the weekend while we were there so we couldn't get much info. This is a county park. There is also a big swimming pool that wasn't open while we were there and playing fields. - jacknpeg

This is a beautiful regional park maintained by the County of Augusta. The bathrooms are dated but are kept surprisingly clean. The sites are enormous but there are only 10 full hook-ups. We love it there and we both grew up camping there. - rememberingthemid

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

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

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

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

I took the Blue Ridge Parkway - VA56 to get to this campground from northern Virginia. The parkway was a pleasant drive even though they were repaving sections of it. If your GPS suggests that you turn left onto some shortcut side roads before you hit VA56 DON'T. These are very narrow forest service roads with huge drop offs. If you meet someone half way, one of you will have to backup. I only had to drive 3 miles on VA56. It was winding, narrow and was constantly going uphill or downhill. The general store where you check in and get supplies is on the north side of the road while the campground itself is on the south side. I was talking with a lady who was a member of the family that owned the campground. Among the things she told me was that they have RV's up to 40 feet stay there. I found that amazing as the road coming to the campground was bad and I thought the sites were a bit small. She also said that her father worked for the park service and opened the campground after he retired. I asked if this was a former forest service campground because the sign looks just like a forest service sign. She said her father made it that way because he liked the FS signs. This is the first campground that I have been to where I saw no class A RV's. I only saw travel trailers, 5th wheels, tents, pop ups and one other class C RV besides mine. They have two ponds, one within the campground for catch and release (I caught 1 Sunfish!) and a trout pond at the entrance where you can fish for free but have to pay by the pound for the fish you catch. The rest room and general store were very nice. The only short comings that I saw were that there is no cell service, no Wi-Fi, no cable and satellite dishes don't work due to the massive trees within the campground. My site was not quite level and everything (picnic table, water, electric and sewer) were on one side and spaced out. So in order to make most things work, I had to forgo sewer and use the dump station when I left. However, I had a very relaxing weekend here and would return. - User3064
