We arrived about 2:00 pm and no one was at the front office. The door was locked, and we didn't have a reservation. We called both phone numbers listed on their sign and had to leave messages because no one answered. About 15 minutes later, another camper pulled behind us, and he also tried calling with no avail. Eventually, an older gentleman showed up around an hour later to open the front office. I guess he must have been taking a nap. :-) We never did receive a phone call back. We paid and were assigned a site number. When we tried to park, someone was already there. The gentleman in the front office said that he shouldn't have been there because he was scheduled to leave that morning. We eventually got another site. Sites are pretty close to each other. We could hear the neighbor's generator running and their dogs barking (dogs were inside the RV). Hook ups were fine except the cable post was located towards the front of the site. We had a longer cable so it wasn't an issue for us. If you need to do laundry there, be prepared to walk up a hill. The boys looked forward to the game room, but it was locked and all you could see was a couple of video game units and beer cases. Looks like they were installing something in the room. We camped here because it was close to Wintergreen and Monticello. Also, it's easily accessible from I-64.
It's December so no one is here. Needless to say, we had all the space we needed. On the other hand, when we arrived, the park was very icy which equates to slippery surfaces and falling on your behind a lot. LOL Overall, I'm giving it a 9. Not because it's icy but rather that there aren't a lot of things for kids to do here. They have a playground but it's located at the front of the park which is closer to the main road. Also, we parked our car in the next site and if I'd imagined there was another RV parked there, it would have been pretty close to ours. Also, if it had been warmer, they don't have a lot of trees (for shade) but I guess this is what you'd expect from an RV park located right off the highway (which I can't complain because it's easy to get to). We would stay here again for an overnighter.
Very friendly staff. Check in was easy and sites are spacious. Plenty of pull-thru sites available. I read that some had issues with leveling, but we didn't have a problem. We stay at site A-4 right behind the flea market. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Location is ideal (easy access I-20 or I-26), not far from the zoo. We didn't get a chance to visit the flea market (bummer). The boys loved that they had a Christmas display of lights and inflatable characters. They had free hot chocolate and coffee -- they accepted donations for a charity. Overall, great for overnight parking or short term stays.
The KOA can't do much about the road leading into the campsite. It's a rural area and has some narrow spots, so just drive slowly. Also be cautious with the locals driving on that road. Some drive around those corners dangerously fast. The bridge coming into the campsite is narrow but we made it across without a problem (39' motorhome with a tow). The campsite greeted us with snow and the boys loved it. Large playground, good Wi-Fi connection, and we were able to get TV channels via antenna. I think the leafless trees helped. This is one of very few campsites open in December. The location worked out well because we were able to visit a couple of caverns, Route 11 Chips, and have fun at Massanutten. The only complaint we would have is that our assigned site was pretty small. We weren't allowed to park our car in the next site even though the campground was pretty empty. We could barely fit our car within our site.
It's December so the park is pretty empty. We chose a premium site (#903) but unfortunately, this particular row of sites face the interstate and you can hear the traffic. On the flip side, these premium sites are close to the Star Cafe (wasn't open) and the playground (great for our boys). The sites do seem a little close but thankfully we didn't have anyone around us. Overall, this park has a lot to offer. Quick access to I-495/I-95. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Transportation via bus and the metro. And they recycle! Would stay here again. We came here in 39' rig and a tow.
Easy to find. We came here because Anastasia State Park was full. Location close enough to historic St. Augustine. When we arrived, the clerk was a little snotty because apparently I didn't indicate that we were towing a vehicle. This was the first time I made a reservation on KOA's website and I didn't realize there was an option to check this. The clerk made a big deal about it to another clerk. Anyway, they put us right at the front of the campground. We have a 39' motorhome and it took some maneuvering to get it through the pull-thru. Dirty pond but the kids loved watching the ducks and turtles. Campground is good for overnight stays.
We stayed here overnight on our way back to Florida. Easy to find. Very nice staff. Assistance to site which was easy to find. We had a pull thru and had plenty of room with our 39' motorhome and a tow vehicle. My boys wanted to stay to go fishing but we needed to leave. Gave it a 9 because leaving the campground was a little challenging. We waited to attach our tow vehicle until we got to the front of the campground. I'm sure more experienced RVers could get out easily. Otherwise, it's a nice place and is on our list of campgrounds to stay at in the future.
Coming from Florida where we're used to flat land, this campsite was a real eye opener. Narrow roads, tight turns with a few blind curves, you just have to be careful and drive slowly. This was especially nerve-racking because we arrived pretty late (it was dark). Disconnected our tow vehicle before we proceeded any further. We camped at site #02. We have a 39' motorhome and we couldn't get it leveled. We adjusted. They provide free firewood. The boys loved exploring the woods/hills. Very friendly rangers. Great atmosphere. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. We stayed here 4 nights. Gave it a 7 because there is no Wi-Fi and no sewer at the sites. They have a dump station at entrance though. Better for smaller campers.
