I gave this campground a 3 only because of the location, which is an easy drive to downtown St. Louis. Everything on the site worked except the WiFi. The campground itself was in the middle of an industrial area near busy railroad tracks, and there was a dirt bike track nearby that ran, loudly, until midnight. It also had a dirty, run down look to it. I believe the owner's residence is a trailer right next to the office, and it is dirty, overgrown, run down, and the first thing you see when you drive in. There was a bouncing pillow that looked like it had not been cleaned since it was installed, and the bathrooms, while they seemed clean, stunk of sewage, like there was a serious ventilation problem. They also stunk up the entire office. This KOA is OK for an overnight, but I would not recommend it for a longer stay.
Excellent small campground. Mostly friendly long term campers staying here. Clean facilities, full hook-ups at every site, paved roads and sites with cut grass between. Long back-ins and decent sized pull-throughs. Sites are close together, but no more then at other private campgrounds. Very friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Park office is only open until 4:30, but there is a camp host to take care of late arrivals. Rate reflects a Passport America discount, which is good for just one night and cannot be reserved.
Stayed here as an overnight stop while passing through. Campground is a mixture of tight pull-throughs on grass or gravel, shaded or in the open, along with tons of cabins and tenting sites. A few seasonals, but sites were clean looking. Staff was friendly, as were other campers. Restrooms and showers were clean, plenty of hot water, though the shower house in the back of the campground that I used was in a trailer with individual showers that could not be locked. Lots of amenities, nice pool, playground, shuffle board, game room, bouncing pillow, as well as planned activities for campers. Electric was good, water had a mineral taste to it, but Wi-Fi was terrible. It was slow and you could only connect one device per access code. Expensive for a stop over, but not far from the highway.
Stayed here as a quick overnight. Park is just off I-74, and there is some road noise, but not terrible. Park has all gravel interior roads, which were rutted and full of water after a recent rain. Was given a "pull through" site, but was told I may want to back out as the field that you pull into is also soft from the recent rain. The site, however; is set up like a back in, with full hook-ups. It was fairly level but many of the sites were not level at all. Most sites had some shade. There are some very long pull-throughs. Power was good, did not connect to water; no Wi-Fi, but did get Verizon 4G. Looks like some migrant workers living here, but all were friendly, as was the owner. Sites were kept clean, and was the rest of the park. There was a dated playground and a driving range on site. Bath house was also dated but clean and well kept. Average campground, good for an overnight, would not be interested in staying longer.
Fairly nice campground with a lot of activities. We camped Easter weekend and they had Easter egg hunts, a DJ, a dance of Saturday night, and a hay ride with the Easter bunny. Several playgrounds, a couple of ponds for fishing, shuffle board, paddle boats, and mini golf are all available. The sites themselves are OK. We were at first placed on a site that was pretty much in the grass on the side of a hill where there was no way to get the trailer level. We asked to move to a nice site that we saw open that was wooded and level. Were moved with no problem at all. The campground facilities feel mature. The store was nice and well stocked, but looked like it could use some work. Same with the bath house. It was clean and well stocked but showing its age. WiFi was only available near the camp office. It is free but weak. I could not upload several photos over it. Electric and water at site were good. Overall a good campground and I would stay again.
This campground is in the midst of a renovation, with a well stocked, renovated camp store, newly renovated bathrooms and showers, freshly paved interior roads and renovated big rig pull-throughs. Brand new cabins were being installed toward the back of the campground. With that said, we stayed in the water and electric sites that have not yet been renovated, though work has begun there. Site had a level concrete pad, water and electric worked find, though pedestal was old. Nice pool, free Wi-Fi throughout the campground that was strong enough to upload photos, and a free regular shuttle to Kings Dominion. Close to I-95, with little road noise, but an occasional train coming down the nearby rail line did wake me up at night. Very good for an overnight stay off the highway or if you are going to the park. Price reflects a 10% AAA discount, they also take Good Sam or discount if you have a Cedar Fair season pass.
Not a bad campground, but not great. We camped here next to friends in their pop-up as a shake down for the coming summer. The campground was clean and fairly quiet even though it is just off of Rte15 highway. There was some occasional road noise, but not too often. Lots of seasonal sites as well as an attached mobile home park. Other campers were friendly, as was the camp staff. The pool is large. The mini golf course was old but neat looking, though not yet open for the season. Large clubhouse was showing its age as well. Bathrooms and showers were clean. I could get WiFi at the site but it was an up charge. Would stay again. Rate reflects a free night's stay.
Very nice little campground. It is a Christian Retreat Center with some planned activities, a nice activity center (where you can connect to Wifi, none at the sites), hiking trails, disk golf, a large outdoor pavilion, and a fair sized swimming pool. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites are wooded and nicely spaced, with a bath house in the middle of the single loop along with a small pavilion, a playground and firewood available on an honor system. All sites are back in. Electric was good, did not hook up to the water. The bath house was nicely laid out and very clean. Rate reflects PA rate, which is good for two nights, any night but Friday.
Not a bad campground, with lots of activities and seasonal campers who were all very friendly. The owner just bought the campground in June, and was very friendly and seemed to be doing a fair job of keeping the place neat and clean. Electric and water was fine, but sewer hook-up as well as the dump station were above grade, and, well, water doesn't roll up hill. But, my main complaint is a biggie and a deal breaker for me, the showers were terrible! They were clean, but you had to pay for them, and if you get warm water, it is only just warm, never hot, and if someone else is using the shower closer to the water heater you will get freezing cold water. Other then that it was a nice stay.
While expensive, we had a free night's stay at a KOA so decided to try this campground out, and I think I will return. Very nice, well kept campground. Bath houses were always clean, as was the pool area and the grounds in general. We seemed to have the perfect site for our little trailer, backed up at the edge of the park, the site we had was nicely sized and always in the shade, though others were smaller and some tent sites were basically in a field. They did have nice group tenting sites, all with power. The campground is close to all the attractions but still away from the highway and peaceful. The staff was also excellent and very friendly. My only complaint was the spotty Wi-Fi. It would not work at all when the campground was busy, I guess too much traffic, but was still slow or stopped when the crowds had cleared out. Other then that, I would recommend the campground and stay here again.
This is a hidden gem of a campground near Busch Gardens and the Williamsburg attractions. Considering the cost to camp here, it is amazing how, on an August weekend, the campground could be nearly deserted. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are a mix of level and not so level sites, you have to look around to find a good one, but since the place was fairly empty there were plenty to choose from. They are well spaced, and some back right up to the lake, making easy access for kayaking or canoeing. The bath house was fairly clean, water was hot with decent pressure. We will camp here again when in Williamsburg.
As others have mentioned, this is a great campground if you are just passing through the area and need a place to stop the night. We arrived very late and I was surprised to find a very friendly gentleman waiting for us. He signed us in and guided us to our site, a pull through in a pretty much open field. We spent several days, visiting friends in the area, and all staff encounters were great, very nice people. The sites are mostly pull throughs in an open area. They are level, all have picnic tables, some have grills, but there are no fire rings and sites are close together. The highway is right next to the campground, and can be very noisy, though it did not bother us in the trailer with the A/C on. Bathhouses were nice, clean and well ventilated, with good lighting. The entire park was very clean and well kept. We would camp here again.
Very nice, level gravel sites, all pretty much shaded and for the most part nicely separated. The staff was very friendly, but the camp hosts not so much so. We were staying next to some friends and all gathered around the fire when, right at 10 pm, they came around and told us we had to quiet down, even though we were simply sitting talking to one another with no other campers anywhere near us. The actual park staff was excellent, however. The park itself is in a wonderful area with lots to do.
Nice shaded family campground. Site was graveled, but not level. Had to block the front of the trailer to get it level, but not overly so. Electric and water worked fine, but the power and water went out for the entire campground on the last night we were there. Lots of activities for the kids. A very nice pool and lodge, well stocked camp store and very friendly staff. Would visit again. The rate reflects a holiday rate.
