My concerns began back in January, when I booked our reservations (as I have done for the past 5 years) to ensure the best cabins possible are available to choose from. After sending multiple emails asking about details on the cabins (we have a very active 3 year old and last year we had a near miss with her and... More

This park could be so much more than it is. We started out with a great experience, we were traveling through the area without a reservation and they were able to immediately accommodate us, which was wonderful. Pulled in and registered, all went well. The campsites are kind of unlevel, and there is absolutely no privacy, no trees, just campers... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us. It is always disheartening when a camper has less than a great time staying at our camp-resort. To address some of your concerns, we apologize for the poor service you received at our Snack Bar. We recently had a complete change in staff and have had some growing pains... More

Had the opportunity to visit with 4 pre-teen girls. The lake swimming and crafts were great! Really fun restaurant. Friendly staff and really convenient to the Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge (where you can drive through and feed wild animals from your car!). Quiet and not too big. Nice tent spaces! We stayed in a cabin with ac!!

The park wasn't what we expected, considering that there are so many of them. The recreation area, which is the most unique part of this park was the most rundown--pool is small, lake area dirty, could use some nicer sitting areas. The pads were mostly grass covered but had gravel built in for sturdiness and leveling ability. There are many... More

We spent the last weekend in May here with Yogi, we had a great spot near the pool and bouncing pillows. The sites were good, just a little uneven. All the hookups worked great, the only fault with our site was the grill. It was bent up and not barely functional. Great staff, very helpful at the store and all... More

This place is so much fun! It is a large campground and consists of two sides, a quiet side and an active side. The quiet side has a playground, bathhouse and walking trails behind the cabins. It's excellent for a quieter camping experience that feels more nature oriented. The active side has the small pool, waterslide, kiddie splash area, jumping... More

It is always disheartening when a guests expectations have not been met. Myself and the managers were on premises during the holiday weekend and I apologize if we were not available at the time we were needed. Discourteous behavior from any staff member is unacceptable and we will be discussing this with all staff members to assure that it does... More

Our family had a great time here. All of the staff were very helpful and nice, especially the snack-bar staff. The four of us stayed in the largest cabin available for two nights and we were comfortable. All cooking utensils, pots, and pans were included, you just bring linens. The reason I rated three stars is because it was $200+... More

We stayed one night. This park was further off the interstate than we expected, about 4 miles, over plenty of winding narrow roads. Internal roads are gravel, sites are grass. Our pull-through was long and spacious. Very few trees were around. There was a rally going on so the park was full. Hookups are near the middle. Wi-Fi was weak... More
