Staff very helpful and friendly, close to everything. Very quiet and peaceful. Outside sites seem more private. We will definately be back. Bathhouses are adequate, pool is small... More

I typically am a little leery of staying at KOA's but this one we were very pleased with. I called to make a reservation for 2 days and 3 nights and spoke with Maddie. She was very helpful and made sure the site we were in was big enough for our 32'fith wheel and private which it was! It was... More

We had a great weekend here! The kids loved the amenities - the jumping pad, giant jenga, giant chess, mini golf, the swimming pool. A lot of things to keep them entertained. The adults enjoyed the entertainment on Saturday night also - 2 Men and the Machine put on a nice concert! We loved the large boulders and the shade,... More

It's a little bit on a back road away from town but very nice and clean we had a great shady lot. The staff were friendly. Only thing that stinks are the shop hours close at 8 pm but other than that great campground would definitely recommend it to anyone staying there.

KoA campgrounds invariably mean paying a premium but we opted to do that so we could stay a couple of days and tour the battlefields. Shoulda saved our $$.

We needed a place to relax and camp for one night on the way to Virginia Beach. We arrived at this KOA at 2 in the afternoon and was pleased to be greeted and ushered to our site.

Had a happy week immersed in Civil War history and camping at the local KOA. Same high standard of campground that most KOA's are, with the only problem being it is very noisy during the day. One of the workers runs the leaf blower for hours every day shattering the peace and quiet...no napping around the pool for me!

The staff were great and the facilities were wonderful. It was a pretty full campground and we could see why. Plenty to do when you're not out sightseeing. The laundry room was one of the better ones we have seen at KOAs we visited during our 5-week trip.

When rating a campground I ask myself: would I go here again? My daughter has a power wheelchair and it was difficult to use on the ground surface here, and we had to use the wheelchair-stroller instead. Therefore I would not go back here for this reason. Even the stroller was difficult in some areas to push, doable but where... More
