I am currently on a cycle tour in America, and choose this campsite as it was cheap and it was getting late. Out of the places i've stayed so far this is definitely the worst. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the bathhouse is unclean, the sites are very close together, and the owner not particularly helpful. When I read negative... More

This is a C- campground. Rated average above only because it is not necessarily poor. Not to say that it couldn’t be a very nice campground. As mentioned in the title, maintenance is an issue. This campground is close to Front Royal and to Shenandoah NP. There is easy access to the South Fork of the Shenandoah River with plenty... More

Stayed in July. We tent camped. Very few rvs. We did not stay on the creek but would reserve there if we go back. Mom and daughter were very nice and daughter Pamela was very kind and accommodating. Spaces were very close together and they kindly accommodated our request to move our space after we arrived and desired more shade.The... More

Nice campground by a bubbling creek. Slept very nicely next to the sound of the creek. A little road noise, but the sound of the running water drowned that out. Had a chat with the owner's daughter the next morning; very pleasant. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area of Shenandoah NP northern border. Price paid was a... More

We stayed there for 2 nights mid June. Only one planned, but we couldn't resist an extra day. If you are a 5 star type person, this is not the place for you. If you want a true camping experience, in a beautiful spot, with enough facilities to make the experience comfortable, then this is as good as it gets.... More

Great camping experience! Some of the sites are smaller but that didn't matter as it was just me and the dog. There is traffic noise but it fades into the background Don't know why the person from Fairfax thought the photos were fake, I had no trouble locating where the pictures were taken, they are definitely NOT fake. The creek... More

Love Gloria. 85 year young lady who is owner & caretaker. This is real camping folks. Take yourself to a motel if your expecting 5 star amenities. The owner is witty, friendly, wise & takes no nonsense. We love her and look forward to sharing a drink or two with Gloria every year. We also invite her to a real... More
