Just got in from camping over the weekend and I must say we all had a blast!!! When we reserved our cabin we were told check in time was at 4 but when we arrived an hour earlier to begin enjoying the activities while we waited, we were told our cabin was already ready. Pleasant surprise!! We were happy with the cabin (comfort cabin right in front of the jumping pillows, close to pool, other activities!!!)
They have an abundance of activities to keep the kids busy all day. Makes it hard to decide what to go do next and I am sure we missed some stuff. The crafts (we did ceramics) was a lot of fun, nice choices for the kids, and the staff was very friendly. Matter of fact, the staff was friendly all over the park and went out of their way to be very helpful.
We felt very comfortable with letting the kids run (an almost 4 yo, and a 13 yo), around close (between the jumping pillow, a neighboring cabin with newfound friends and the playground at the top of the grassy area). I found this campground to be a very family friendly place and a place to make friends easily! after being bugged by the 13 yo who was very obsessed with wanting to try out a golf cart, we caved and rented one for 2 days, and glad we did as some activities (laser tag for one) was pretty far up from where we were staying.
The campstore was well stocked, albeit the prices were a little steep. I agree with another reviewer, there is a Walmart within 7 miles and some fast food places as well as Luray caverns and the Luray Zoo. We went and toured the caverns after we left the campgrounds since they were so close.
The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Dont think we ran across anyone who was anything but that!!! I found the entire facility to be well kept and very clean!!
I gave the excellent rating because overall, 99% was AWESOME!! The 1% that wasn't was that our cabin had an overabundance of flies (we ended up buying a can of flying insect killer spray and spraying the room. And when my husband checked the smoke detectors, we found that one of them did not have a battery. He did complain and they said they'd send someone in to put a battery in, but they never showed up. :( Might not be a big thing to many but for someone who lived through a house fire, my husband was irritated over the lack of concern for the missing battery.
Overall, ready to go back for another visit this summer!
