We stayed here for one night each on the way to Va. Beach and back the last of Sept and first days of Oct. The hosts/staff were very nice. The sites were clean and fairly level.. The campground itself was very well kept. The shower house was clean. They have very nice pond. If I had a negative, it would be that from our site(126/114), the shower house was a little far off. Since we only stayed for these two evenings, we didn't get a full fill of the campground, but our vote is it's very nice.

The camp grounds and facilities are very well maintained. We especially liked the campsite we were provided. It had it's own wooden deck and a great view of most of the site. Since we travel with our 4 legged family members, we made use of the dog park. The people utilizing the park took care not to leave poop and the area was well maintained. The staff was very attentive to our needs and we assume the rest of the campers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

We stayed for 2days, 3 nights while visiting family in the area. Large, level pull through, full hookup site. Had to disconnect water at night as the weather was below freezing, had 2" of snow the morning we left.

Staff was helpful, and kept checking that everything was ok. Restrooms clean and well stocked, Park was neat an clean, pool was not open due to the time of year.

Booked our next visit for during the summer, looking forward to it.

I tent camped here about 15 years ago. Took the RV here as part of a multi-day trip in VA. About 150 sites, nice fishing lake (I got some nibbles but did not catch anything), very friendly staff, all the typical KOA amenities. The only 2 short comings, in my opinion, were that the lower cable channels were fuzzy (I had this same issue at another KOA elsewhere in VA) and the sites around the lake were a bit tight. Other than that, I thought that this was a nice campground and will probably return some day.

We were very impressed with the campground. It is located relatively close to the Interstate but we never heard any highway noise. The layout of the campground is very unique and makes good use of the terrain. Our site was on the hill overlooking most of the campground and the lake. We had a very spacious, level site that was full hookup. There is a section of the park that is on the flat and intended as an overflow area or late arrival area as campers arriving after dark could have difficulty traversing the campground roads. The ducks and occasional heron make one realize he/she is truly out in the country. After checking in, we saw very little of the staff as we had no reason to seek them out. The restrooms were immaculate and obviously cleaned frequently. when we checked in, we noticed that the campstore appeared well-stocked. We would and will visit again.

We had a great time at this campground, located near Thomas Jefferson's Montpelier estate. The campground's highlight feature is its large lake, with several back-in sites along one side. We had one of those. Several other sites overlook the lake from a hillside. Fishing is permitted, and there is a bunch of ducks who will visit your site if you provide food, which the camp store sells. The only downside was a bit of duck poop that landed on our outdoor carpet! We visited on a weekend that provided funds for a charity that sends kids to camp. One of the fundraising activities was "candy bingo," which was a lot of fun. Additionally, the staff was very friendly.
