“Cramped & Overpriced = will not be coming back.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

When my husband and I go camping, we always stay at KOAs. This one was the worst. The roads and sites were tiny (watched many people with campers struggling to get into the sites), as well as the bathroom stalls, the showers, pool, everything. 2 out of 4 showers for women at the whole site were too low, I guess they were made for kids yet kids can shower under regular showerheads so I'm not sure what the thought process was there. I am 5 ft 5 and I had to squat under the showerhead. There was much hype about the dog park, which in my opinion, was terrible - filled with random tubes cut off from a playground that none of the dogs wanted anything to do with. It was too small for dogs to actually run around. In our case, "pet friendly" meant paying $10 more for a cabin right next to the entrance, which was ok for our dog, but not for most dogs that bark at anyone that walks/drives by. The $15 deposit for a key was strange, the key is on a huge bright yellow keychain you would be hardpressed to lose it. Wireless internet does not work at most sites (didn't matter for us, but thought I would mention it). We paid $125 for 2 nights in a small cabin aka "shed" that did not even have A/C. However, considering the area, this may be the best, which is definitely not saying a lot. I would recommend checking into the other nearby KOA (think it was about 30 min. away) or one of the other campsites if you are coming to the attractions here for the day.

The KOA is right next to the drive-through safari (check it out - it was awesome) and close to the main Natural Bridge attractions.

We recently stayed three nights at this KOA. The June 29th storm knocked out power in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, etc. & was devastating!

We arrived late evening on July 1st & were notified upon check-in that our tent site had no electricity. I was disappointed that they didn't call us before hand... also, at check in one of the owners made a comment about my hyphenated last name which added insult to injury.

We paid the price for a tent site with no electric or water, and they did knock off an extra $11 for a reserved tent spot, so I was happy about that... Yes, we are frugal!

The owners of the campsite did the best they could under the circumstances... I think after this they're likely to invest in a generator.

If you like to camp at KOA's... this KOA is OK.

We choose to stay here so we could visit both the Shenandoah and Blue Ridge National Parks. That proved to be a good decision. The campground was nice, staff were very helpful and all the facilities were clean. I had only one complaint: the internet was very s-l-o-w.

We had a wonderful time!! The events for the kids were sooo enjoyable for them. We had Pirate theme and the Pirates were "attacking" us with super soakers, Pirate games, etc. Ice Cream Social.. AWESOME! and Karokee was probably the highlight of our trip. That was the 1st time my daughter got to do Karokee and she had a BLAST. There are not many "kid friendly" bars with karokee :) The staff was also very friendly! Arcade was great too.
Definitely will return!

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time. Our tent site was large and had a nice raised, level platform. The bath house was very clean. There was also a nice pool but we never used it. Each night they had a band playing and we were suprised at how good they were. There were also lots of activities for the kids. We participated in the glow stick parade, where the kids go on a wagon ride and yell until they are hoarse. It was a good way to settle them down in the evening. We also had fun at the flashlight candy hunt. The campground was right next to the Virginia Safari Park which I also highly recommend. We can not wait to go back here!

I stayed in a Kabin with 3 children for the weekend. The staff went above and beyond to help us and make our stay enjoyable. The kids loved the pool, giant checkers, train rides, and more... the facilities were clean and always available. They even delivered the firewood for us! The Kabin site was private and in a wooded area. The staff remembered our names and were always friendly and helpful. I was so very impressed with our stay, I would recommend this KOA to anyone!
