This is a fairly well maintained family oriented campground, staff were friendly and helpful at check in. Interior road is dirt and stone, big rig access is tight but doable with care. Our water/ electric only pull through site was very long and reasonably spacious but was located at the front lowest level of the park and puddled very easily even in light rain. These sites which appear to be used for overnight travelers require you to enter the campground proper to do a circular tour and head back out to the only entry for these sites at the front of the park, when leaving you have to do the same loop through the park to exit the campground, somewhat frustrating! Sites have a picnic table and fire ring but very little privacy, there are no shade trees but it is quiet, satellite friendly and we had a pretty view through our front windshield. Some of the back upper level sites have views across the campground however it could be a challenge for big rigs to get up there, it would only be worth the effort if you were staying for more than a few days. Bathrooms were clean and the laundry clean and well equipped, but a long way from our site. Pet friendly with a dog park, doggie bags and disposal station. WiFi was slow and just about usable, cell was good. There are food stores and places to eat in Staunton which is about 10 miles away. We would overnight here again, despite the convoluted entry and exit. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely well appointed campground that is a treat to the eye. Big spacious pull through and really nice green space with mature trees. Bonus for a really big dog park and a lake with fish. They sell propane cheaply and the store is unusually sell equipped with RV needs like fuses and fluids. I didn't like their dump very much because it's set on a corner and I found it a bit awkward pulling a rig to dump and then turn. Also their internet is good for nothing more than checking your email. Not their fault because they are outside the range of any provider so don't expect to be able to do much of anything on line. The neighbours were using Verizon internet which they said was strong and clear. Staff were exceptionally nice. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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.

This KOA is a little better than most KOAs we have stayed in but that is not necessarily a complement. It is in a scenic setting but is laid out very odd. The section where we stayed is power and water only which means a trip to the dump station which is a long winding way. WiFi was very slow when it worked. Cable was barely watchable, although late at night it clears up. Nice dog park, well kept. Dog bags available most areas. Fire ring was under the rig by the time we got parked, so could not use. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Several historic sites close by in Staunton and Charlottesville.

We stayed during a three-day weekend. Campground full. We were on a site, which we were told had been under water the week before. We had the rear tires spinning mud both pulling in and leaving. While maneuvering within the park is possible in a big rig (45 feet), it certainly isn't for novices. Office staff excellent - check-in easy. Probably will not return - this being our second time here. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park once you are in and set up. The road leading to the park is a little narrow with trees that need trimming. Once in the park, the interior roads are VERY narrow with trees and no shoulders on the sides. There are some side drops that you don't want to get into. You are not escorted to your site and this is the first park we've been in that we felt we really could have used an escort to help us find our site. It's fairly large with a lot of crossing roads. If passing through this area again, we will look for a different, more big rig friendly park. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was an over night stop for us so I requested a pull-thru so I wouldn't have to disconnect my toad. The pull thru sites are up on a hill over looking the camp sites below. The sites were very long, level, stone and among mature trees with lots of shade. While the pull thru certainly could accommodate my RV and toad, the connections were at the rear of the site so I had to disconnect the car and park it in front.

The 50amp was good but the water pressure was only 20 psi when I connected. During the evening and mornings, when others were using the water, there pressure was terrible.

Some of the inner roads were paved, some stone and the stone roads were not very dusty.

We'd stay here again but probably use our own water and pump. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

Overnighted at the campground. It is near the interstate, but far enough away that here is no traffic noise. A very nice park in a small valley between two ridge lines. Our site was located near the park entrance and was set up for overnight stays. Gravel, level and full hookup, with picnic table and fire ring. The major part of the campground had more picturesque sites; fishing pond, shade, views, etc. The staff was excellent and helpful. The swimming pool was larger than most KOA pools. We camped in a Motorhome and would camp here again. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely "destination" campground that is family oriented as most KOAs are. If you are wanting a "big rig" pull-thru site for an overnight stay, there are only a few on the left as you first enter the campground. Those sites fill up quickly, so call ahead to reserve one.

WiFi was poor. You are assigned two logins and they cannot be switched to another of your devices. So if you login with your phone and then want to switch that login to your tablet or laptop, you cannot do it. Once the login has been used, it's dead.

Pricing was extremely high for an overnight, but it was the only park in the area that the other reviewers on RVParkReviews suggested would be good for big rigs.

There was a storm threatening to hit the area, so we "bit the bullet" and paid the price but I would not under normal circumstances. This is not a resort or "big attraction" area that might justify the high price. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park. Nice sites, entertainment for the kids. On a pond with streams that run throughout the park. Need additional bath house near lower sites. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

At check in I was told the rate would be 31 (no sewer) and 33 (with sewer) I told the gal I'd take sewer. I was charged 45? I guess when I said I didn't want to renew my membership, they got the money anyway. Showers and restrooms clean but dated. The interior roads were gravel, dirt, ruts and more ruts. The site had no table and the neighbor's sewer hose connection was 8 feet from my front door. My sewer connection was too far away to use. I certainly would not stay again.

We stay here going to and returning from the beach. We always try and get a site adjacent to the lake so we can watch the ducks. Power was good and so was water pressure. They have basic cable service which is good. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
