The staff is friendly (under new ownership), and they are great about bringing firewood to your site. The internal roads are winding, with tight turns. The site we were in wasn't level back to front, but otherwise was quite nice and quiet. Other sites are "pull through," but they put campers in nose to tail, so not what you think of as pull-through sites. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

My first stay in a commercial park (as opposed to a state or federal park), and I was very pleasantly surprised. I arrived at 9 a.m. of the day I was to check in, obviously very early, but they were fine with it, charging me a $3 early arrival fee. (Since nobody was in the site I reserved and it's the time of season where not many of the amenities are available (pool, etc.) I would have preferred no additional charge, but what are you going to do. It's a nice park with spots not too close to each other and angles in such a way (at lakefront anyway) that I really didn't feel claustrophobic. My only issues are with water (a little brown but fine when filtered) and cable (a cheap splitter was connected to my next door neighbor's site to allow connectivity for my site (by the owners, not me). This should be fixed. It's above ground, not protected and provides pretty crappy cable signals. On the plus side (utility wise) the wifi is excellent in terms of signal strength. I was at one of the spots furthest from the office and shower area, and still had very good signal. When the park was packed (last night for Halloween) the speed was very sluggish, but right now with almost as many people here, it's working well. Sites here are mostly level, and the service and staff is excellent. (They pick up trash at your site daily, sell and deliver wood to your site for a very reasonable price, etc.) I will definitely return. I stayed in lot 24 -- a very nice lot, although no sewer at this specific one. That was fine for my three night stay We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the front section for a couple of days. There was plenty of room for our 39' fifth wheel and the truck. There was no sewer hookup in this section, but since our stay was short, this was not an issue. The campground was very inviting, the lake was pretty, and the super sites were the nicest I've seen so far. The dog park was very nice, and a huge maze had been set up using orange construction barrier material. Pretty cool...From talking to our neighbor we learned that the campground had been absolutely full for the weekend but by the time we arrived, early Monday afternoon, you couldn't tell. It was quite serene, and we had a lovely walk, as the campground is expansive with trees and hills, and our fellow campers were just happy with life. Will definitely return. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a well-maintained campground. We were placed in the newest section which had large, level pull throughs, but they lacked sewer. Can't understand why you'd construct new sites without sewer. Additionally, to exit the new section required drivers to pull back into the main campground, circle it, and then drive out again. They had a large, new nice grassy, shaded dog park. Might return if in the area. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

It's actually a pretty nice KOA, tucked back in the woods, easy access down a paved county road but our stay wasn't without incident. It looks like the one-night stayers are at the very front of the park which was nice - easy in, easy out and mostly pull-through sites. We stayed in the upper level to the far right, back of the park. When you get assigned a "pull-through" or "back-in" site make sure it's actually full pull-through or single back-in, not pulling in to be bumper to bumper with an RV in front of you (site 74). That would have been fine but there was not enough room for our 40' MH and full size truck. When I made the reservation I was very specific about the size we needed but did not get what was promised. They did not charge extra to park our enclosed trailer, which was nice, but getting it parked in the spot they wanted it wasn't all that easy. When I complained about the site I was told there was a 30 amp site available but no 50s for our size. We expressed our displeasure with the arrangement seeing as I'd made reservations for 3 days and told them upfront what we needed. After a lengthy discussion they allowed us to park in site 83, which is 30 amp, but use the 50 amp service from site 82. It really wasn't big enough for our needs but was better than site 74. (And even though site 82 wouldn't be rented out they would not allow us to park the truck or trailer in that site). With all that being said, it is a nice park, they have lots to do, and we didn't have any trouble getting around with the MH. We talked with another camper who had the same problem we did - called ahead with specifics, told no problem, then got put in a site too small for their needs. They'd been there about a week and watched the site next to them be vacant most nights and it would have fit their rig. They asked to be moved and the park refused. Not sure if the person who makes campsite assignments knows how to fit people in or not. But we would not stay there again and the other campers said they would not return either. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

Gravel level site. Very helpful staff; clean restrooms and showers. Family friendly. Quiet and away from traffic. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

We've been RVing for many years, and this is one of the nicest places we've seen. Check-in was easy and the staff was always pleasant and helpful. The grounds were immaculate and everything seemed to be in good repair. Remarkable for such a large place with so many RV sites, tent sites and cabins. We walked around the park and the small "lake" every day and found it to be a very family-friendly place. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, and they even have a fenced in area for your doggie. Over the weekend the place was full, with mostly VA license plates, which suggests that it's a popular local getaway. We stayed a week and it was $245. This website insisted on a nightly rate and I don't have that - so I divided by 7 - it might be a bit higher. I'd rate the park a 10 but the Wi-Fi in our location was consistently poor. Cable was OK but spare, (not a lot of channels) and some channels were not clear, but if you're coming to be outside and camp I suppose those aren't big problems. They do have a number of newspapers available too. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

The previous recent review doesn't seem consistent at all with our experience. This a beautiful park with a ton of attention to detail by the owners. The office store is hands down the cleanest and most sensibly stocked store I've ever seen in many years of RVing. We had absolutely no sense of narrow roads or sites. Yes, some roads are single tracks but they are also one way. We maneuvered without any concern whatsoever. Now, the park is well off the Interstate and those country roads do take a while to navigate at slower than highway speeds, but once you arrive, you are greeted by a very happy staff, impeccably clean facilitates and a very spread out, safe, attractive and well appointed park. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

Led to campsite, which was helpful because lanes are windy and our site was on a hill. Back-in site had many trees; however, access was not bad. Immediately situated in front of another occupied site so kept the back window shades down for privacy. Gravel interior roads, level dirt site with shade. Laundry house clean, but limited number of machines, which were often used. Bath house clean. Lots of open grassy space. Staff was friendly. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff is great and helpful and the surrounding area is beautiful. Unfortunately this campground is not up to standard KOA quality. The roads are very narrow and dusty and you need to make 3 hairpin tight turns to get to any of the sites. The road up to the "hill" is a single lane for in and out traffic and if you meet up with oncoming traffic someone will need to back up a few hundred feet. The "lake" is really a swamp with an odor and scum film covering the water. The dump station is poorly designed and on the exit road, so if someone is dumping you need to wait to exit the park. We have been going there 3 consecutive years and notice that there has been ZERO upgrades or improvements; even dead tree limbs over sites are still hanging. Its obvious that the owner could care less. The showers and restroom need attention but the pool is nice. This could be a premium KOA. but it's not. We will not be returning to this KOA.

Pleasant helpful staff. Well maintained grounds and good interior roads. Wish the access to the large pull throughs didn't require going through the campground to turn around. No sewer but didn't need it for a short stay. Lovely, quiet environment. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

Without a doubt one of the cleanest campgrounds we have stayed in. Staff was very friendly and all the amenities first class. The pond-side sites are awesome with lots of friendly ducks to entertain you. We will definitely be back. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Full hookup site right on the lake. Great morning view watching the ducks swim about. Level sites that were easily accessible. We would come back again. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely Staunton-Walnut Hills, a plantation from the past, camped along the beautiful pond, my vision much surpassed. A warming sun, quacking ducks, winter fades to green, a gravel pad, and easy set-up. So, sit back it's time to dream. Different tiers to choose from, not a site that seemed forlorn. Road-weary from a day of driving, a chance to feel re-born. The only downside I could find is that the internet was weak. It beckons so come relax enjoy. To serve is such a pleasure, a traveler's delight, they've earned a "9" for such a rambling man's pleasure. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

We camped in a 40 foot motorhome in a pull through site in the front section of the campground. In order to get in or out of that area you have to drive into the main part of the campground around tree lined curves through a tent area. It is doable but not comfortable. We were reluctant to do it with car attached which required that we hook up in front of the office. They would only let one rig hook up at a time because we would be blocking traffic (which we did anyway while waiting for the prior rig to hook up). Other than that, the hosts were friendly, utilities good, and the other part of the campground was lovely - pond, upper sites with good views. We would not stop there again because of the logistics. Recommend coming in from Rt 11 vs 340 because of angle of turn into campground. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.
