We had booked another site closer to Luray but when we were 15 minutes out the camp hostess of that site realized we were gonna be too big (38ft) for her site.
After some calling around we were able to book this site. Was a great jumping off point to visit DC.
Only complaint is it was pricey but I imagine that ya to do with the proximity to DC?
Stayed here as a fiscal alternative to getting a hotel room for a friend's wedding. We stayed in winter. Water at the sites was shut off (as to be expected in the temperatures) and we were advised during the booking process. Seemed like a family farm that for some section aside for camping. Pool was closed as again we were out of season, but looked large. Nice time that they said we could fish in. Reserved a pair of "buddy sites" where our friends were able to camp with their trailer facing our pop-up which was a very cool experience. Stayed and people were friendly and very accommodating. We arrived early in the morning and since we arranged it that way with them they had our reservation all set for us.
This place is described as a family campground- quite accurately. There is a very nicely maintained (but not guarded) pool and locker room and there is an adequate playground. There was also a room with activities, but it appeared to close by 7pm. The pool hours were described as opening at "11ish".
The website advertises farm animals; but we never wandered far enough to see them.
There are a lot of sites for RV hookups but we camped in tents and know nothing about the needs of RVs or campers. The camp store is a bit dusty and bare, but the camp is super close to plenty of retail in Manassas or Gainesville. Perhaps too close; we could hear a few ambulance and fire sirens in the night.
Seems like a much quieter alternative to Bull Run. "Urban" camping with a bit more privacy.
The cost was high (approx. $80 for two nights) for both the tent and "primative" sites. Honestly, I didn't know the difference between them. Maybe the tent sites are closer to the bathhouse and have picnic tables? We did not have a water hook-up on our tent site as far as we could tell; couldn't figure out where they were, but since there weren't many other campers, we just used the ones we could find.
Plenty of tall trees, plenty of wood around, but you can also buy wood.
The tent sites aren't marked clearly, but we found one that worked and since we were the only tent campers- didn't seem to matter.
The tent sites are not seemed to be maintained a lot (there was a site with tons of trash that sat there all weekend), but the sites we had were clean and ready for us.
The other perks: this campground has some of the cleanest bathhouses I have ever seen. Showers had perfect water temperature. Sites are large. Our group were the only tent campers there for Friday and Saturday night. This is super close to 66 & 15- could be a great base for exploring Manassas Battelfield or even Washington DC.
We are locals and just wanted a quiet place for our kids to escape to and get comfortable camping. Fit the bill!
