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.

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.

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 The bathrooms are old and outdated.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. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice, clean campground. Many sites are very unlevel and small. Cable TV is terrible, so snowy you can barely watch it. For the price WiFi should not be an extra charge. Pricier than most campgrounds we've stayed. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I understand that winter camping is different, but if you offer it, at least plow out some area. We could not get out of our camper with out stepping into a snow bank.They only remove the snow where the camper sits and then pile the snow all around the site. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Been a few years since here. CG still well maintained and well staffed. Everyone is most helpful. Pride is evident. Led to site, with help in backing in. Interior roads are paved, then gravel. Site is gravel and level. Utilities are good. Lots of room to walk the dog. Would stay here again. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Wi-Fi was only free for a short while then you had to pay a fee to stay connected. Restrooms in bad need of updating. Would not feel secure using the shower as there was no way to lock the door. Cable service very poor. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Winchester. The site was very accessible and we were shown our site via golf cart. I had some problems with the cable hookup, and they came promptly and checked the post with a monitor which showed that I had an internal problem which I resolved. The cable itself is very basic with little on it but it provided our dogs with something to watch. The WiFi is Tengo Net and cost $10 for 4 days. It was OK but when I got my MiFi going it was much faster than the campground WiFi. The cost seems excessive for those of us who don't use the game room or other activities available. The campground is very clean. and the staff is very dependable and we would stay here again. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.
