I just stayed at this campground for the third year in a row. The area is beautiful, and it is a convenient drive from my house. My first stay was wonderful. Great campsites, friendly staff, good facilities. Last year, the price doubled, supposedly to make improvements. Our “full hookup “ site didn’t include CATV, and a minor rainstorm caused the sewage system to overflow, soaking all of my gear in waste water. When I spoke to the staff, the only comment was “We’re working on that” Well, this year there was another price increase. The improvements were building a giant, expensive water park. The sites are now smaller, the roads are rutted and hard to tow through. Although the sites do now have CATV, our site only had a male connector, and three calls to the office proved ineffective. I found a Dish Network tech working in another part of the park and told him. He immediately came to our site and it took him 30 seconds to fix the problem. They do seem to have fixed the sewage problem. It’s a shame what has happened here. A great campground has fallen to greed. The staff, if you can find them, is indifferent. The prices are up in the hotel range, the water park looks nice if that is what you are looking for (I wasn’t). This will probably be my last stay here.
Great family campground, but that is what we expect from. KOA and this KOA keeps those standards high.
Small and crowded pool; campground layout is very basic and not aesthetically appealing (almost like an open field with a few trees scattered throughout to provide shade); nice camp store; not too many amenities to brag about.
Not related to the campground, but mosquitos in this area are absolutely ridiculous. Make sure you are covered in repellant before you arrive because otherwise, as soon as you open car doors, you are COVERED in mosquitos. The town sprays daily, but the solution obviously doesn't provide sustained relief.
Even for a KOA, this was bad. The sites were way too close together. The bathroom/shower house was filthy. When we told the people in the office about the problem they said they couldn’t do anything till the next day. The guy at the site across the road had a pit bull off lead. Security said they would watch him in case he got aggressive. (When it would be too late!)
A good campground if you plan to go around the island but not to much to do right there. Clean, descent size lots
Camped here several times and we love this place. Facilities and the grounds are always clean. The staff is very friendly, when purchasing ice or wood from camp store they try to get someone to deliver to your site.
This campground is super clean, has nice sized sites, everyone is friendly and helpful. It’s our favorite campground.
This was the second time we went here. Last year, we really enjoyed our stay. Chincoteague is a beautiful area, with lots to do. This year, the price has more than doubled. Their excuse is that now that they have a Waterpark, they are now a KOA Resort. All well and good if you are looking for that type of thing, but the campground has changed as well. The sites are smaller and closer together. Full hookup only means electric, water and sewer. Although many sites have CATV, not all do. Speaking of sewer, a mild rainstorm during the night caused the septic system to overflow, inundating many of the campsites with black water. When I spoke to one of the camp employees, his reply was that the storm water runs into the septic system, and there isn’t anything they can do about it. I have never experienced this in any other campground. Most of the camp employees are very kind and helpful, but the office staff is indifferent. If you go, check your site before accepting it - most RV/trailer sites are fine unless it storms. There is lots to do in the area, and many great restaurants on the island. Be sure to check out Mr. Whippys! Restrooms and laundry are well maintained.
The sites are very close together. There was several times during our stay that the bathroom was out of toilet paper. The staff was friendly. There are lots for the kids to do, jump pillow, playground, camp activities, pool and there is a water park for an additional fee. Plus it is close to the beach and you can bike ride to everything in the area. Also there are no campsite grills at this campground at all so make sure you bring your own!
