The staff at check-in was helpful and courteous even though we disagreed on the type of site I had reserved (I later discovered they were correct). The site layout was interesting in that each site alternated in which direction it faced. There is a large area devoted to RV storage and there is some road noise. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times. Overnights only. Only real complaint is cable NEVER clear or works. They "tested" and said it was our coach not their cable. Cable worked that morning elsewhere. Others have reported same problem. Could be a deal changer. We paid for deluxe site. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at Candy Hill many times but this may be the last. Every time we stay here the park is a bit shabbier and the road a bit noisier. Candy Hill is very convenient from I-81 which must partly account for the fact that there are always lots of RVs here. (Short-term, long-term, and storage which really looks terrible.) The people who check you in are rude although the maintenance guys are nice. They charge an extra $10 if you want a premium site which has a grill and some cheap patio furniture. The large grassy areas which used to be immaculate are now ragged and weedy. The hook-ups work fine but the wi-fi is poor and the cable tv is terrible (it works but has few channels and the picture quality is poor). Really what used to be a pretty good rv campground is now a mediocre rv cg and they overcharge, IMHO. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy access. Nice big clean level site with concrete pad. Price was satisfactory for time and location. Receptionist worked hard accommodating our needs. Unfortunately, being near a busy highway, road noise is extreme. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here to be near our daughter in DC for a week. The person in the office looked up as I entered but did not greet me and looked back down. I cheerfully said hello and got a snort. We arrived on a rainy day so we would expect a little mud. However, they directed us to a site that we had to back over "grass/mud" for well over 80 feet, and up a slight incline, onto the cement pad. Even with our brand new Ford 350, we struggled to do this. Our rig is very heavy at over 16,000 pounds. The tires spun and dug huge tracks in the mud. The guy directing us did not seem to care that we were tearing up their grass. In 4-wheel drive we made it but what a mess! Our truck and 5th wheel were muddy. Why isn't there gravel? Why not direct us to an open site that was paved (there were plenty)? So, we spent a week walking carefully around mud. Yuck. It was not a pleasant stay. We did laundry but found an odor in the laundry area... musty moldy smell? The machines were clean. We were in an area where the sites are very close together. The picnic table was exceptionally small... maybe only 45 inches long. The bright spot was that they did have an old refurbished trolley that we took into town for the Apple Blossom Festival. The guy driving was fun and we really had a great day. However, we won't return. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stopped here twice on the way to and from Florida and Vermont. Convenient location, called same day. Nice dog park. Friendly folks. Got a back-in site for our Class B. Will stay again. Shower was NOT clean...nor was sink area. Other than that, great spot and we'll stay here again! We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for the first time on our way southbound on I-81, just for the night. We had a nice level pull-through site on an concrete pad. Some other reviewers complained about highway noise from Route 37. Maybe in spring, early summer with windows open, but if you are running AC or furnace, I don't think it's an issue. We had on the TV and furnace and didn't hear a thing. Even with TV off, slept the night just fine. Loved that after hours on the road, we could order food from local Pizza/Italian restaurant and they delivered right to our camper!

We had reservations, but the night we arrived they were closing early, so we kept them updated on our progress. Got in just under the wire and they were waiting for us. Check-in was easy. Definitely will stay here again when heading up or down I-81. Nice campground store as well. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Called an hour away to see if a site was available. Received good directions. Tho it is 3 miles off I-81, rt.37 circles back to 81 so no need to backtrack when leaving. Great, friendly customer service, and we were led to our site which is much appreciated. We are just passing thru, and serves our needs completely. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

This cg is right off a main artery (522, I think) and can be quite noisy. But it is convenient to I-80. Firewood can be purchased by the small bundle or wagon load. We bought the wagon load. What was delivered was not anywhere near the quality of the display load but it burned okay and we had fun. Our site was far from the main road and very nice. Office people are hit and miss for friendliness and helpfulness. Yard workers all seemed to like their jobs. Easy in and out and the cg roads are easy to navigate. Will stay again.

Park was small compared to some of the "resort" type parks, which is one of the reasons we tried it. We prefer smaller parks were you don't have to be worried about being run over by golf carts as you take a walk. CG property was very clean, all the employees we dealt with were very pleasant. The camp store is one of the best stocked that I've run across, especially for the size of the park. We stayed on one of the Luxury sites that included a long pull through site that feature a concrete pad, concrete patio, full hookups, 50 amp service, a custom built fire ring, patio furniture and a gas grill. The site itself was great, the only issue was these sites were the closest sites to Hwy 37, so there was some traffic noise while outside. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will return. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Visited Marker-Miller Orchards Farm Market, loved it. Went to Old Town Winchester, great walking town with plenty of restaurants and shops. Visited the Patsy Cline house, very interesting, not sure it was worth the $8 per person fee for the tour, but we did enjoy it.

We were coming home from a vacation and needed an overnight camping spot. I had decided on a campground, but when we arrived to a rather dirty, and to us, unsafe, spot, we decided to leave and hope for a better campground. I called Candy Hill, and the gentleman I spoke to said he would save us a site. We arrived and were thrilled at what we saw. A polite, helpful front desk and a clean campsite. We had a picnic table, and I requested a fire ring, which was delivered within five minutes. We didn't use the showers, so I can't address that concern that some reviewers had, but I did not think that the highway noise was an issue. Wifi was fine. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice grounds very well kept. Nice dog run. Very helpful and friendly staff. Roads to the campground and in the campground are paved but rather narrow - they are easy to navigate but only wide enough for 1 vehicle with some blind spots. Very close to the highway so it was noisy. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

It's a nice campground and easy to get to; however the restrooms/showers are a bit rundown and some of the staff are in need of some customer service training. It's pretty easy to navigate; however some of the spots they put people in is REALLY tight. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There's plenty of things close to there and they have a game room, laundry, activities and a pool (didn't use so not sure if it was clean). They tend to fill up pretty quick because of local activities - which I assume is why they are not the friendliest staff around (and why they are a bit more expensive than most we stay at). It's pretty enough there and we've stayed twice - the first visit was definitely better than the 2nd visit.

We've been stopping at Candy Hill for over twenty years and it doesn't appear to have changed. This is not a good thing. The general infrastructure is badly in need of upgrade to modern standards. The bathroom house is particularly a problem. It took me four flushes to almost empty to toilet. Showers are small, shower heads are high, and the floors are slippery. The dressing area is public and narrow. If two people were standing in the aisle, they could not pass without touching. My wife says the women's room smells mouldy. Since this campground is pricey, it appears to be acting as a cash cow, rather than provide a positive camping experience. Our highlight was the attendant who helped park us. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very convenient to gasoline and a shopping center with a large WalMart as well as several chain restaurants. Too close to I-81, making it convenient and noisy.

Have to get off I-81 S at exit 317 and turn onto Rt 37 for about 4 miles then turn right onto US 50 and make sure you get all the way over to the left hand turning lane at the red light otherwise you have to go down and turn around to turn onto Ward Ave. Didn't like the wi-fi as you had to set up an acct to even use it for the allowed free time. Didn't use it as they wanted too much info. We camped at Candy Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Just pay attention to making that right turn from Rt 37 onto US 50 and get all the way over to the left hand turning lane at that red light to turn onto Ward Ave.. when leaving to get back to I-81 S stay in the right hand lane after making your right hand turn from Ward and the next red light takes you back onto Rt 37 which take you to I-81...when you see the signs for I-81 be aware of traffic as there will be 2 merging lanes on your right
