“Amazing owners, Old-fashioned family fun”

Reviewed Oct 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground has 3 distinct areas: nightly camping, seasonal sites, and monthly sites (where we stayed). All are very nice in their own way, and mutually welcoming. The owners live on site and have taken great care to revive and expand on a traditional family-oriented camping experience. When we called to book 10 days in October, we were told about their two traditional Halloween weekends, which were fully booked. However, space was still available in the monthly rental section, so we opted to do that.

What we loved: Warm welcome, escort to site, super friendly staff and neighbors, great care in maintaining a family atmosphere--no open drinking, excessive noise or rowdiness, reasonably priced food options on site (Friday night outdoor buffet, Tie Dye Wagon for weekend light meals, and The Eatery with a great Sunday brunch). Camping and food/beverage are reasonably priced. Creative activities like a well-attended chili cook-off were fun. It felt like an oasis to us and we enjoyed the ebb and flow of busy weekends and peaceful quiet weekdays. Daily trash pickup at each site, wood delivery service. Fabulous location for exploring the Shenandoah Valley area; we hiked, biked, went to festivals, visited museums, and ate well.

Cons: Very few, frankly. The sites are a little close together. It's not a ritzy place. It is a very comfortable restored and expanded local treasure.

We will be back. 40' Class A + toad

“Noisy and a hassle. Avoid this place!!!”

Reviewed Oct 28, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at this campground and really disliked it. It was crowded with little room between sites. It was noisy all weekend long with loud music playing until quiet hours began at 11pm. We like quiet and peaceful and if that's your thing too, then don't bother with this place. Because of our experience, we would not recommend this place to anyone nor will we come back.
We happened to be staying over the Halloween weekend and we were not warned or told that they invite the neighboring community to come trick or treating on Saturday evening. Because of the crowds and I do mean CROWDS of people, they close down the campground to traffic. We returned from an afternoon out with groceries and were told we couldn't drive to our home. Let's just say this was surprising to us and we were very angry at the no warning of the closure. After having words with the management we were allowed to drive to our home. To top it all off after the trick or treating ended, loud music went until 11 pm. The thumping was unpleasant when all we wanted was a nice quiet Saturday evening at home.
It is my understanding they have parties here every weekend as they gave us the 2019 schedule of weekend events. Definitely not our scene and we would like to warn others about this noisy and annoying place.
In addition to the noise and crowds, the dog run is a joke. It's a small fenced in area with trees all over and not any room for the dogs to actually run. There is also a sign that states no toys allowed. Our pup enjoys playing fetch and this dog run was too small with too many obstacles to do that. Why bother even having a dog run if my dog can't bring a toy in and there's little room to actually run around off leash?
If you're looking for noise, loud music and crowds, then this is the place for you. Otherwise, stay away.
