Lots of level sites except the one we got along the road. We could not get our Motor Home level but it was fine for one night. Very slow check in. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Ask to see your site before you try to set up. They have lots of level sites but quite a few unleveled ones also. Nice sites on the banks of the river. Tube and raft rentals. Fishing pond catch and release.

This campground appears to be a great family place with lots of activities in the summer. We were there early in the season so most of the amenities were not open. The route to the campground from I-81 is winding. Our primary focus was Shenandoah National Park (SNP). The location of the campground is okay for exploring the southern-most section of SNP and the valley. The RV site was adequate in size, but navigating into and out of the site was very difficult because of the trees...way too tight. We were lucky that there were not many RVs in the park during April as we were able to exit thru a vacant site. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed walking along the river, although in high season this would be filled with tent campers. There were small bits of trash around, echoing the family use, e.g. candy wrappers. In hindsight, it wasn't the best park for a short stay. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you haven't explored Shenandoah National Park, please know that you can't comfortably drive it in one day. It can be done in thirds. A pleasant driving trip for one day from this campground, would be to start at southern Rockfish Gap entrance and head north for about 30 miles. Then head back south on the highway or through the valley.

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. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

It poured the entire time we camped - BUT - the sites were very close, they are pull-thru, but very tight. We have a 35' TT and the rear corner was hanging out on the back road, and the front of my truck was on the front road (still hooked up). The sites were a swamp, so did not drain well at all. The sewer caps were in the front of the sites, so unless you carry 50 feet of sewer hose there was no way to dump. When we left I pulled up to the dump cap and blocked the whole road while I dumped, or I would not have been able to use it. The camp store was ok. The hot tub room was very odd - it stank of a dirty mop bucket and was musty. The roads leading to the place from I-81 are narrow with some sharp turns. The pond is advertised as stocked every weekend, yet we caught no fish or got a bite. They have rabbits EVERYWHERE - which is cute, until you want to walk thru the grass and there is rabbit crap everywhere. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park should stop advertising Internet. We camped here for a week and could not pull up a web site. Got a few emails but could not open any pictures or website such as YouTube or Facebook. The park is very clean but the maintenance people speed around in golf carts and tractors all day. People walk through campsites on a regular basis to get to office or river. A few miles off the highway so no road noise. Will not stay here again. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites are hard dirt/gravel. There are lots of trees and roads are narrow. Water/electric/sewer were fine. We had to back out of our pull-through to make the turns/hills to leave. There were tons of rabbits and many more flies, which made it difficult to sit outside. The road to get to the campground is narrow and winding. The river is pretty, and our Golden Retriever enjoyed swimming and tubing the river. We will not return. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is not worth the charge. The $43 includes Good Sam discount. Sites are extremely tight and even the "Big Rig" full service sites are very tricky to maneuver. The cable TV is not good. The 50 amp electric is iffy. The grounds are spotlessly clean with a river nearby that kids innertube in. The pool looks lovely even though we did not go into it. There are a lot of things for kids to do including nightly PG rated movies and other activities on the weekend. Mini Golf. We would not stay here again.

This campground is nicely kept, sites are close together and gravel and stone. My gripe is with the price. I think that $44/night for a 30 amp, W & S site is excessive. The road in from the highway is tight but doable. The staff is pleasant. We'll probably stay here again as we have family in nearby Harrisonburg. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Cable at our site was terrible. Showers were filthy. Bathrooms were ok. Cell service is spotty. Nice setting next to a small river. If you are in the area, this is an ok place for the night. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Bristol, TN. The motorhome sites are tight, don't expect to be lounging around at your campsite. The tent sites near the river and waterfall are muddy and will flood if it rains - so tent campers beware! There are also sites (the pull-thrus without sewer) that looked liked they flooded when it rained as well. There are domestic bunnies everywhere which people seemed to enjoy, but I'm not all that keen on having domestic animals wandering around in the "wild". The hot tubs were nice (there are 4), but you cannot adjust the temperature - it is set at around 95 degrees. You must shower before using them, and the showers were pretty scary. Just... not all that clean. A good bottle of Clorox would do a lot of good in there. That and a 100 watt light bulb overhead. The pool was clean and was large and there were chairs provided. The miniature golf course was a joke, but we did play and enjoyed it despite it being rather hokey. I would not recommend this campground for a long stay but for an overnight or perhaps a weekend, it will work okay. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a river-front site that had a sharp drop-off to the river, which was disappointing because we were hoping to fish just behind our campsite. This site was not full hook-up. I recommend you go ahead and stay in a full hook-up site. The sites are a little close together but overall the park is nice. The waterfalls are pretty. If I were attending events in that area of the state I would probably stay there again, but if you are looking for peace and quite and to be spread out with a little privacy then I would not recommend this CG.

This campground is very crowded and difficult to find enough room to park tow vehicle with larger rigs. If the park has WiFi, they keep it a secret because on the information given to us by the office, they only have dial-up in the office. The sites were too close together for our preference and I didn't feel safe with the fire rings so close to the rigs. Another problem was that you lose cell phone service once you enter the park. The pay phone was out of order, so the only option was to drive to higher ground. This is definitely a family campground because there were many children running all over the place. This park is perfect for pop-ups and tents. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great park for kids. There are many activities to keep them occupied. We didnt see any bored kids around. It's also a great park for people who love to tube. The river is right there and is shallow and has a gorgeous waterfall you can stand under. The downside of this park is that its built with way to many sites. They are extremely small and they pack them in there like sardines. They would do well to remove a few sites and expand the existing sites outward. This is basically a tenters, pop up and travel trailers park. Because we have a motorhome, we won't be going back. It's simply to hard to navigate and the sites are so small that it makes it a chore to try and squeeze into one. Its a shame as this park has great staff and lovely grounds. Word to the wise, if its raining be prepared to get flooded. There is little gravel in the parking spaces and because this area sits in a low section it will get extremely wet and muddy. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground located in Verona, VA officially calls itself Shenandoah Valley KOA. We called ahead to check on site availability for a long pull-through with 50amp service for at least 3 nights and we asked about an option to stay as long as 6 nights. We were told that a site meeting our requirements was not a problem. When we arrived a couple of hours later, the only site that they could offer us was a site that did not comfortably fit our truck and 38'RV, it was only 30amp and, in order to get a site for 6 nights we would have had to change sites in the middle of our stay. We decided to leave after 3 nights instead. While there, we found this to be an old-fashioned, old-type, family-oriented campground that is very popular with fishermen/women/children who all liked to take advantage of the river that runs behind the place. There are picnic tables, fire rings that get lots of use and plenty of tall pines for shade. They claim they removed 600 trees, but the trees are still very plentiful and, if you have a long rig like we do, you will still need to be somewhat cautious coming and going. Besides the fishing, a pool and hot tubs, they offer other activities. They offer a form of cable which they refer to as Satellite TV and they make 12 stations available. We were only able to pick up about half of them without using our own dish and, because the campground sits so low compared to the surrounding countryside, I'm sure an antenna would have been of little value. Cell phone service was also all but impossible. They do offer free WiFi. Staff are pleasant if not inefficient about getting the proper site info reserved. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
