We stayed here twice. We came back when we were nearby and wanted a reliably good campground. Staff was very helpful. They were building a new swimming pool. Nice store. Showers and laundry good. Lot spacing was nearby with some shade. Site surface was gravel. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy place to get to. I have a 39 ft 5th wheel and the entrance and exit seem pretty narrow, but really aren't. Inside roads are fine. Level site, and big enough for my truck to remain hooked up. Office staff helped me get in touch with a mobile RV repairman. Would stay again. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overnight park next to very loud, busy highway. Noise all night from trucks. Nice big dog park. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Well, what to say about this campground. It is really the only game in town and that means bad news for campers. They are some of the most unfriendly people I have ever met running the place. I will say they know how to park you but they do not have much in the way of people skills. If you come in to the park they chase you down to make sure you have your pass. It is silly but it is all about the money. It is 4 dollars a person and if you leave in an hour they will refund 3 of them to you. That is ok but still it is a pain to just drive in and pick up a friend for dinner. We were holding a rally there and it was raining and they would not open the door to the room even a min early. They said if we stay five mins of they will charge us 50 dollars. It is not a friendly place and I would recommend that you drive a bit further down I 81 and stop there. They have cable that works and they have internet but it is Tengointernet so it means you're always signing in and it is slow. They have well water too so the water pressure is just barely enough. They have lots of 30 amp sites that share a pole too so the hookups are on the wrong side of the unit. Thankfully they have the sewer on the proper side. The noise from 37 is as loud as staying in a rest area overnight. The sites are very tight and you have a few feet between sites. I think I have about 5 feet from my slide to my neighbors coach. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of things to do in Winchester. You can take a trolly tour of the town to hear about some of the sights and information to start. Patsy Clines home is in Winchester as is George Washington's Headquarters from when he was surveying. There are many great places to eat in downtown winchester too.

We stayed at Candy Hill for a rally. Hurricane Joaquin weekend - it was wet! Not a single employee waved at us as they golf-carted by, as we waited for events, etc. We had a room reserved for meals. Cold wet older folks waited outside the door - the employee walked by us many times, avoided our eyes, had been asked to let us in, and didn't open the door one minute early. 30 amp sites were all we were offered, but we saw empty 50 amp sites. Wifi very in-and-out and slowed to a standstill if you used too much. $4 charge for anyone to stop by and visit. Everything has a fee attached. We had a concrete site only partially grassed and completely muddy. Trash dumpster a distance away. The road noise was very loud. The picnic table was old and I wouldn't sit on it, and it was situated behind a raw dirt area. Site not large enough to easily park our car on the site.

It would have taken very little for the staff to have made us feel welcome. They made money from our rally. Would a few minutes in an empty meeting room, in from the rain, have hurt them? We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We ate at The Piccadilly and it was perfect - service and food.

Very nice place. Well kept, we have been stopping by for approx. 8 years, twice a year. It is a bit crazy on holiday weekends and you need to reserve well in advance but it is totally worth it.

Nice friendly people, clean open campground, nothing better in the area.

My only complain is that you get only 1 hr of free WiFi every 12 hrs, if you want more you have to pay 3.99$ for the 24 hrs, I have told them many times that it is being cheap! Especially considering the price to pay to stay there.

Other than that, perfect campground! We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Beautiful town of Winchester is 10 min away.

Shopping galore, antique stores, tons of restaurants.

Love to go there.

Museums, everything.

We stayed here for a rally in September. The folks were very accommodating and took our group around on the trolley. The sites were a bit close together, but we made it work and our group really enjoyed our time there. All utilities worked as they should and the only downside I see is that it is quite expensive for the sites given and we picked up some stink bugs while we were there (no fault of the campground!).

This is about the only place in town and we would definitely stop there again if in the area. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit old Winchester, some great historic buildings there. Also many good places to eat. Check with the campground, they can give you some great tips on dining and places to see!

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.

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.

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.

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.
