Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

We really enjoyed this place for early spring. Lots of young families. Quiet at night, clean bathrooms. It could use a couple more though. Pool looks a little small for summer plus they sell memberships. Store is well stocked. I can't can't enough how clean and nice it is.

The facilities were in excellent shape, and it was obvious a great deal of care is put into the property regularly. The dog park was large and had a few benches. The entire camp was very clean, and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our stay.

This was our first trip to this KOA and we will definitely be back. The bathhouse and store were very nice and clean. The staff were very nice and friendly. We look forward to going back when we can use the pool. The only downside is the location of he entrance. The roads are a little tight right before getting...

We enjoyed our stay at this park. The site was very good. We arrived after the office closed and they had left a package with our information and a map to our site. They had Halloween Parties on Friday and Saturday nights for the kids. The bathrooms were clean and they picked up the garbage daily. The park is located...

We stayed at this campground in a travel trailer. This is a very beautiful and well maintained campground. The staff is very nice and you constantly see them around cutting grass,cleaning the bathrooms,picking up trash,etc. I would have given it 5 stars but we weren't too thrilled with the particular site we were given. It wasn't very level and was...

This is a great campground. They have a lot to offer. It is beautifully maintained. The staff is very attentive and friendly. My only word of advice is be cautious when coming to this campground. The one town closest to the campground has a lot of tunnel and underpasses that do not accomodate larger rigs (such as ours). The campground...

We had arranged a visit to Longwood Gardens and wanted something a little different for our overnight stay. We are on a strict budget right now and the local hotels were a bit over our budget so I took a chance and inquired with the KOA that came up in my google search. Very friendly and pleasant experience over the...

This campground is clean, always has fun activities for the kids and is right on the Brandywine river. The pool is awesome and the cabins are the nicest I have seen yet. The new bathroom in the front has continuous hot water and the shop in the office has everything you need, especially if you forgot something. The only complaint...

The staff was super friendly and very accommodating with my scheduling error! However, this was a very expensive campground and very difficult to navigate with an RV. Make sure you have 4 wheel drive to get up the very steep mountain. Never mind the winding roads leading up to the KOA. Our campsite was on a cliff and after being...

Reviewed 26 August 2016

I avoid KOA for their anti-family pricing, bur this looked convenient for the historic sites we wanted to visit. It is located in a very remote place. Narrow roads and low-hanging limbs are something you encounter from every road in. The place is very hilly but well-kept. Nice facility but very short on showers, so plan to use your rv...
