We have been RVer's for 7 years or so and this is an amazing KOA located close to I-81 in the western part of Virginia. The staff is amazing and even was willing to guide us to our site in a horrible down pour. We stayed on one of their deluxe sites at the top of the hill, which includes... More

Thank you Vancena for your review! We're so glad that you enjoyed our July 4th weekend on one of our patio sites - we worked hard to plan a lot of fun activities and (of course) our amazing fireworks show, and we're glad to hear our hard work paid off! We hope to see you again in the future. More

My family which included a 5 year had a nice time at this camp ground. We stayed in a deluxe cabin which was nicer than expected. It was clean, and with the loft for my sons sleeping quarters and toys there was plenty of room. Partial kitchen was stocked with dishes and pans but lacked things like measuring cup and... More

Joy - We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your recent stay with us! We try hard to plan fun activities and keep our facilities clean and well-maintained and are pleased that you found them overall satisfactory. I will mention the lack of measuring utensils to our head of housekeeping - this was something we hadn't considered! Thanks for... More

Well, I should have heeded the advice of a previous review re: "POOR Customer Service". My daughter and I just got done hiking the AT and thought a night in a "real" campground w/ amenities would be fun. We were on the road and called at 8:30 p.m. and were told if we registered by 9:00 the rate would be... More

I am so sorry about the experience you had recently attempting to camp with us. Unfortunately, we cannot stay open to wait for every single person who calls to say they are on their way, as many people are merely price-shopping and never show up. That said, the office should be open and the staff available to campers until our... More

We stayed at this KOA when our son graduated from JMU. We stayed in the larger cabin and was absolutely impressed with how clean it was, how we'll stocked it was, and very, very comfortable. This was a much better stay than going to a nearby hotel! All the comforts of home and very peaceful and quite. The folks who... More

I recently spent 3 nights at the Staunton / Walnut Hills Va KOA with a group of friends and wanted to share my experience. The campground and facilities are clean and well kept.

As I have said in response to your emails, on the phone, and in response to this review posted in other places, I feel that your party and our business have come to an impasse.

Nice quiet KOA that is far enough away from interstate to be generally free of road noise. We always try to get one of the full hookup back in sites on the small lake that is the centerpiece of this campground. You can sit in your camp and feed the ducks and just relax. One of our regular stops.

Reserved a site here to stop as a layover on the way home from camping in S.C. I haven't stayed at a KOA in a long time, but I may have to start giving them a chance again. This KOA was very well maintained, clean, friendly, and up to date. We were coming in late and we got a call... More

It's been a while since I visited, but I finally told myself I needed to leave a review. Firstly, the campground was absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained. We looked around in the area, and it was by far the most beautiful. My young children (under 8) begged me to take them tent camping for months, and I finally caved.... More

My husband and I wanted a nice little getaway, on a limited budget, for our 10th anniversary. We rented one of the deluxe cabins & it was the perfect place. Spacious enough that we weren't on top of each other every time we tried to move, yet had a very cozy atmosphere. Everything was very clean. Our view of the... More
