We usually stay here on our way to our son's home in southern Virginia. It is a wonderful campground for an overnight stay. We especially appreciate how clean this campground is. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. There is always an escort to your site. The store is well-stocked. There is also a large, fenced-in dog park. Poop bags are provided. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walking distance to a 7-11. Civil war museum in area.

Rate seems a bit high for what you get but this is the only game in town. Cable and Wifi available. Great location 3 miles out of historic Winchester and about 6 miles from I-81. Cacapon Resort State Park is 28 miles north on route 522. The quaint town of Berkley Springs is just 7 miles further north. Some sites are concrete slabs, some are gravel, both pull-thru and back-in sites available. Our pull through site allowed us to stay connected for an overnight. No leveling necessary on concrete pad. There are many shade trees next to the site. Campground has a nice pool, playground and lots of open space, rolling topography. The bathrooms are very outdated and need a serious update. Old wooden doors on the toilets but clean. Showers were roomy with a plastic shower curtain but dressing area was not private; consisted of a bench just outside the shower curtain, not enclosed. We will stay there again...great spot for overnight or for visiting interesting areas nearby. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Section F allowed us to stay connected to the trailer for an overnight.

Beautiful, well maintained park with gorgeous landscaping: no shortage of lush green grass and flowers. We stayed here for three nights and as we prepared to leave for our next destination, discovered a large slide would not retract! Park staff went beyond being courteous and helpful by recommending a repair company: they actually helped PUSH THE SLIDE IN. Beautiful grounds, friendly, caring people, we highly recommend. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the flea markets!

Convenience is the reason to use this park. It is on the bypass around Winchester. The utilities were fine. Wi-Fi is by contract with TengoInternet. The provide 1 hour free and/or 24 hours for 3.95. The Wi-Fi service was excellent.

There is road noise, which would be a nuisance if the windows are open. There are summer activities which might justify the price but in the off season it is a tad high. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Winchester is a lovely town with an overwhelming amount of history. Besides history the area is a major apple producer with the usual festivals, has wonderful scenery, and many activities and services. It is a good base for exploring the surrounding country.

We stayed in a 'luxury' pull thru spot. When I made the reservation on the phone they told me all about the concrete pad and patio with gas grill and patio furniture, but never mentioned that their 4 luxury sites are at extreme edge of the property within 50 feet of the highway. Noise level was high to say the least. The rest of the sites are a mixed bag. Some looked decent some not. Almost all larger pull thru sites are along the highway with smaller and permanent sites at the back where it was very quiet. If you will fit in the back save your money and get a quieter standard site. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

A beautiful campground with pleasant young people working at the counter and parking the units. We needed LP. An employee came to our site, picked up the tank, filled it and brought it back to us. The hook-ups are a tad weird. They are shared with side by side parking and you have to go under your unit with hoses and cords. Wonderful dog walk with a large fenced area for them to run and exercise. It's easy to find and easy to continue on the next morning. WalMart is close. We would stay here again. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam discount. Nice park with level site, but dribbling low-pressure shower-heads. Clean restrooms, but door hard to shut in the women's restroom. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Combination of some good and mostly bad left me with a poor opinion of this park. Good: Well kept facilities and easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Man who guided us to our site could not have been more helpful and friendly. Bad: Man at registration gave me the distinct impression that I was a barely tolerable nuisance necessary to endure in order to get to my wallet. Convinced me to pay extra for an upgraded site with concrete pad, then found upon arriving at site I had to be half off of the pad or not open any slides because of a tree immediately beside pad. Pull through was clearly an afterthought (read: chance to charge more for a badly designed site) requiring an exit through a grass yard - I'd have been reluctant to do so if ground were wet. No chance of satellite under the trees and cable was snowy and unwatchable. Campground directly adjacent to highway and train tracks. I doubt we would stay here again. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, but way over-priced for a 30-amp site with W/E. The bathroom's showerheads were the dribbling, low-pressure kind. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We've camped here twice this year. The campground is clean and well maintained. The staff is very helpful. They send an escort to help you park your rig. The bathrooms are old and outdated. The nights we used them they were none too clean. Kind of surprising for how meticulous the staff is about everything else. A nice campground that we will return to.

Camped in a 35 foot 5th wheel. Site A-13 is very tight for a rig of this length due to trees & hill. Owner was invaluable in assisting in & out. Site required two boards to level side to side; picnic table needed boards to level. Site is grass with shade. Campground has convenient access to highway, but is also noisy day & night. Laundry & shower houses need a face lift, but are clean. Showers have open & common bench & hooks. WiFi requires a fee. Staff are very friendly. Campground cable car ran two nights to a local yoghurt shop for $1.00 per person. Did not use pool, but it was busy & looked clean. Convenient to Winchester, Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.

Price reflects a Good Sam weekend with extra activities. The campground was well maintained with a lot of things for my kids to do. The bathrooms were clean but dated, but worked great. The site we stayed in was very small I wasn't able to park my truck at the site with my trailer I had to park in the grass across the street. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Cable was snowy and difficult to watch with limited channels. The extra activities that were included weren't worth the extra money, but that isn't totally the fault of the campground. I would stay here again just not for a Good Sam weekend. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Level backin with room to park across the street. Good water, elec, and sewer. Bathrooms are old but clean. WIFI is free for 1 hour, we did not try it. We were here with a group, and were further from the road noise. We have stayed before for one night traveling; it is expensive but convenient. We camped here in a fifth wheel.

This park is the only campground in Winchester…and that allows them to significantly overcharge for the services/amenities provided. You must pay to access Tango Internet Wi-Fi service and the campground cable TV is basically unusable, so snowy you can’t see the channels. Over-the-air TV only gets a couple of PBS stations. For the price Wi-Fi should not be an extra charge. Access to the campground is via a narrow city street. Once on the campground property, the road is paved asphalt, but very narrow (one-lane), winding and has pot holes. Turns are tight for motorhomes and long trailers. Only a few campsites are paved, the rest are grass or gravel. Many sites are not level and there is little elbow room between most sites. Not only are the rates high, but they will nickel and dime you with higher rates on numerous special event or holiday weekends, a $50 fee if you show up after the office is closed (8PM), $2/hour for early check-in (before 1PM) or late check-out (after 12 Noon), $4/day per extra person, a $4 charge for a visitor, and no refunds once you have checked-in. Bathrooms were clean, but need updating. There is an extensive RV storage area in the campground and there are also many long-termers. The park is simply overpriced and over managed. We stayed here only because we didn't know better, but will never return. The rate was with a Good Sam discount. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.
