Cold Showers, Employee allowed cabin with dog but paying campers, Hit with a No Pets allowed policy. Dog owners disregard that canines should be kept on leash, supervised at all times, not restrained outside indefinately (30+ hours) or allowed to bark/howl incessently, clean up after their dog and to stay off the playground. Kids also running around unsupervised and getting into other peoples belongings. 5mph speed limit not enforced. Quiet hours from 10pm not enforced. Drivers of pick up trucks like to shine their vehicles bright lights from 4:30 am. Security employee complains that they havent had a day off that week!!!!! Their job is to provide 24/7 security?! Laundry facilities hit or miss if machines are working and sometimes only cold wash cycles available. Internet also hit or miss. Electric cut out the week I was staying there. Tree branch fell on someones vehicle, luckily no-one was hurt or damage done to the vehicle. Pot holes everywhere. Summary VERY, VERY, VERY poor site. 1 star rating because the office staff were friendly but wont be coming back....EVER.

Website claims extra long sites so you don’t need to unhook the tow car. The site was long but so pitched we had to detach or lift the car off the ground. Lots of blocks needed to level. The picnic table was broken with large nails exposed (not kid friendly). Sewer line not threaded so ballast needed to keep the hose in. Water pressure extremely high. Use a reducer to keep from blowing your lines. 81 degrees out but pool not opened yet. On the plus side, it is easy access to 95.

We made a trip to the Philly area and on the way up we used one campground and the television was only getting 4 channels, mostly children’s shows. We looked for a different place for the return trip and found this campground, when I called I was told that the cable was out but that we could probably get channels with the antenna on our unit. I checked in and the young lady in the office was very nice and gave me directions to the site. The entrance was very rough with numerous speed bumps, I hooked up and my wife and I took a nap, when we woke I saw that we had no water. My first thought was that I didn’t turn the water on, however when I went out there were people in the next row with bright lights looking at a hole. I went over and found out that someone had hit the water pipe. The maintenance man was there and informed us that he would be at Home Depot at 6:30 in the morning and that we would have water by 8AM. At 9 AM I went to the office only to learn that the guy couldn’t go earlier because he needed a check. I’ve been waiting for a call from the manager, Debbie about a refund and it still hasn’t been received, not very pleased with this campground and would strongly recommend looking for some where else in the area.

This is a great park and my wife and I really enjoy living here and would get 4+ stars.. However, there are some things you should be aware of. All of them regarding the Camp Host Supervisor (Bob Wagner) you have working for them. I have been in the Custer Service industries for 50 years and I have never seen anyone in the position he has treat people the way he does. Not only the volunteers he was working for him but the guests you have staying at your park. During my time here I have become good friends with the employees and Camp Hosts they have there. They have talked about the way he treats people, again both volunteers but guests. I have heard and seen him berate his volunteers publicly, in front of guests and fellow employees. When he does so he does not admonish them in a normal tone of voice but constantly raises his voice and he is never wrong. During my years in the industry anyone who behaved this way would not be working for me for very long. Another issue is that he has the same temperament and manner when dealing with the public, including guests, visitors and delivery people. If he catches anyone going the wrong way or “speeding” he doesn’t just advise them that they are going the wrong way or too fast. He is immediately confrontational and raises his voice, which usually results in arguments. I realize that there are rules that need to be obeyed for every bodies safety and there is not a problem with this. It is just the way he handles these matters. I have personally witnessed him confronting a long time 80 year old guest by getting into her face screaming at her and calling her a liar. This is totally unacceptable and uncalled for. A decent human would not treat a person this way much less an 80 year old woman. There are guests that are leaving and will not come back because of him. You also have some great volunteers that are quitting because of him. From what I have been told, heard and personally witnessed this man should not be employed in any position that deals with the public and especially in any kind of a supervisory position. He is just law suit waiting to happen. I don know why he acts this way but he has the classic characteristic a “Little Mans Syndrome”. Something needs to be done about him and soon before there are any law suits or physical altercations due to his actions.

Guy on mowwer broken our window on our 5th wheel and KNEW IT! He stopped and did not say a word. After getting the run around we were told to get 2 estimates for the window. I REALLY would stay somewhere else if I were you. Like someone else said, pictures look nice and it was a KOA .........over 10 years ago. The guy was using mowwer to mulch the leaves, which could have waited or put us somewhere else. ALSO internet sucks and so does TV reception. Maybe a good stop over but not to stay longer. we are here for a week and window got broke our second day here! NOT a resort at ALL!! Needs ALOT of updates and remodel.

We arrived at the campground on a Sunday September 22, 2019...it was fairly quiet but that would all change on Tuesday, we were woking to a backhoe 15 yards from our unit (to our surprise they are doing construction). A walk to the front desk to ask what was going on yielded a rude response, that went something like this. "He is the manager and he is not going to stop, we can move you" If you knew you would be doing construction right there why would you put us next to it, there must be other options since there is no one in this campground? So much for a relaxing week in Virginia. Avoid this place!!!

Woke this morning to the manager running a backhoe in the campsite in front of us. Went to office and was told he didn't care about the inconvenience to his guests. No notice of construction when booking site. Rude and inconsiderate staff. Would not recommend. It's a shame. Had promise.

We stay here a couple of times a year. It seems to be used primarily for those just passing through. The staff are friendly and they try their best to keep things clean. But the bath houses desperately need to be renovated and updated. The roads and sites in the campground need gravel at least. It is convenient to the Interstate for easy on and off

Don’t let the pics above deceive you , this camp ground is in need of some serious TLC !!! Finding the place was a nightmare , GPS first sent us in opposite direction of the camp ground ended up in a run down trailer park not the campground !! Then routed down another road with no where to turn around a 60 ft rig , had to drive for approximately 6 miles in a loop , stop to call for directions was told everyone was having trouble finding them !!! After finally getting there check in was ok but we had had a window in our RV get shattered on the road there and were in need of a ladder and we were told by owner he had nothing that would help us !!! Meanwhile a nice service man that was staying there over heard conversation and offered his help !!! We shortly had our window covered thanks to him before dark and the night temps of 20 . Next morning went for propane fill up and guess what no propane they were out and didn’t know when they would have but the Ace Hardware about 8 miles away had it and it was cheaper there anyway . I wasn’t worried about the cost we needed propane , one reason we made this stop !!! I just don’t understand not having propane available if you have signs that you sell it , this had just happened to us at a KOA in Lumberton NC !!! All in all I would pass this place up if more than one night stay !!!!
