As my wife and I were discussing my review, I asked her what could we point to to take away from a 5-star rating. Neither of us could think of a single thing.
This campground (RV Resort) is simply beautiful. Wooded, stone borders, stone walls, and stone fire pits at every site, plus full hookup at each site. They cater nicely to big rigs, offering numerous pull-through sites as well as back-in sites, as your need exists. Small rigs down to tent trailers camp here as well. There are only two restroom locations (same with the dumpsters; guests do not leave trash near their sites, guests are expected to take care of their own trash), but they are clean, well cared for, and odor free. Showers are the same.
Most sites are spaced enough to give some feeling of privacy, some are fairly close together. A few sites are nicely secluded for those of us that crave privacy. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, and include a “Camp host” for after hours problems. Because of Virginia restrictions due to the current COVID situation, as of this writing the pool and spacious game room are not open. Check with them if that is a gamechanger for you. Their cavern tour (discounted for guests at the RV park) was lovely. Marked well, lighted, relaxed. Our tour guide, Haley, was a sweetheart, taking time for the two little kids, and still giving the information older people like. Plenty of things to do nearby, including museums, Civil War Battlefields, shopping, and Skyline Drive (fantastic).
This is a quiet campground, with no street lights, and quiet hours from 11PM to 8AM. Definitely not a party campground, which totally endeared this place to us. Roads are gravel and can be a bit steep, 4-wheel drive is helpful.
We thoroughly loved our stay here, and assuming we are back this way, we don’t even plan on looking at other locations to stay. Can not praise this campground (RV Resort) enough.
Had a wonderful time. Clean restroom and showers. Pretty level site. But, roads to your sites were extremely steep. We got there the day it rained all morning. Roads were washed out. Our rv was tossed around trying to get to our site. Kinda scary twice. Felt like we were going to topple over! Half hour later, they had trucks there putting in stones where the road had huge holes! Caverns were exquisite!
Sites were large and easy to level out at. Used to be a nascar resort, and they still have their signs up. Took off a star because the shower house wasn’t clean - not sure if/when they clean it because it was pretty much the same during our stay. We didn’t do the cavern tour, but did take advantage of their hiking trails onsite. It is well worth the effort to climb up to their sign to take in the views. There are picnic tables up there. We didn’t have enough time but going up there with a glass of local wine at sunset would be awesome. Great location to get to Shenandoah NP, Harrisonburg, Charlottesville, and wineries.
Had a great time here! The sites are all on the side of the mountain, and you can hike up to the sign similar to the Hollywood sign that can be seen from miles away. Side note- after hiking to top, we found that there is even 1 camping spot at the top under the sign with a CRAZY view of the valley below. There is even a pool here for swimming at the campground if you like. The caverns are super awesome as well, especially considering they have not been fully explored. It is not as crowded as some of the other caverns in the area which in my opinion is a plus. We only had 1 other family with us. The place has lots of old world charm.
Wonderful size lots. We were early in the camping season so we had no one around us. The size of the lots were amazing, plenty of room. We had so much fun, we didn’t even leave our camping sites the entire time!!! Wonderful place.
we Went in 8/2014. Very empty which was perfect for us. Large, clean bathhouse. Nice sites though all gravel. There was a pool at the campground but not much else to do. We visited the caverns which were nice and you get a discount for staying at he campground. While there, we went to a little Mexican restaurant in town which was good. Also went to Natural Bridge wildlife safari and zoo, mini golf on a rainy day, and hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Nice area, close to the blue ridge Mts. I’d return.
