Just wanted to say "thank you" for a wonderful camping experience. This was our first time at your campground and it was a treat. We enjoyed the DJ on Saturday, the campsite was very nice, we enjoyed the river, but mostly enjoyed the beauty and sitting around the camp fire in the evenings! Your campground was recommended by a friend and I can say that we plan on returning!
Thanks again and see you soon!

I don't have a memory to share. Just wanted to share, though, how wonderful we think your campground is. We live in PA and wish it would be closer as to visit a lot more often. I took a college English class this fall, and your campground was my inspiration for a descriptive writing assignment. I attached it to share with you.

Spectacular Vacation Spot
My favorite vacation spot is a small campground in Staunton, Virginia. The campground is nestled in the Shenandoah Valley, at the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains, so named Shenandoah Valley KOA (Campgrounds of America). This campground is a spectacular place to spend a vacation.
Just less than fifteen minutes from the hustle and bustle of Interstate 81 lies this stunning campground, transporting someone to what feels like a world away. Coming off the Interstate highway, we travel through the rural town of Staunton. The town is rather small, having one grocery store, two gas stations, one hardware store, and two fast food restaurants. Just past the post office, we turn on to a small, windy road just large enough for two campers to pass each other carefully. The road winds its way to the top of the hill, entering a forest filled with everything nature has to offer.
An opening in the trees on the left leads to the road into the campground. The road is paved with blacktop, and is covered like an umbrella by long reaching tree branches and a multitude of leaves. Then, all of a sudden, the trees open up. To the left is a grassy, green hill. When the wind blows the grass on the hill bows to the breeze, resembling ripples on the ocean. From here on summer days, the rays of sunlight that glisten off the clear, refreshing water in the swimming pool can be seen. Also, the laughter of children either cooling off in the pool, or playing in the playground can be heard. The road continues to curve around the hill, past more trees, and on into the campground.
At the entrance to the campground lies a fishing lake. Surrounding the lake usually sits a father and son with fishing pole in hand, enjoying time together. Ducks float upon the lake without a care in the world. When they tire of the lake its amusing to watch them waddle back and forth as they cross the road on their way to the river, or into the campground looking for a handout of food.
Visitors do not have to go far to be greeted by some bunnies. There are tame, domesticated rabbits, almost every color of the rainbow and too numerous to count, that live at the campground. They can be found in the grass, in the road, under cars, and under the camping units. Just about anywhere someone will find a multi-color fuzz ball hopping around, followed very closely by a little child with food in hand.
The campground is not only nestled in this valley, it also sits snuggly in the horse shoe curve of the Middle River. This lazy river runs alongside the campground for a mile and a half. Many bring inner tubes, or rent one from the store, and enjoy a relaxing float on the tranquil river. At the upper end of the campground the river is only a few feet wide, and barely deep enough to float on. As the river winds its way alongside the campground, it gradually gets deeper and wider. The river is wide enough for someone to stand in the middle and cast out a fishing line. It is deep enough for that fishing line, but still shallow enough for young children to stand in the middle of the stream.
On the opposite bank of the river lies a rock cliff. The cliff is covered with lush greenery so thick that the rocks can barely be seen. At one point, through the wooded scenery flows a dazzling waterfall. The white, flowing water cascades from one rock to another getting stronger and wider on each rock it hits. What a breathtaking view this is. The sound of the rushing water is calming and peaceful. The streaming water eventually mixes with the laid-back water of the lazy river and flows off to a far away place.
This campground with its picturesque view is a wonderful spot. Visitors can leave their busy lives at home and feel as if they were transported to another world. It is a peaceful, tranquil place to enjoy the beauty of nature. It truly is a spectacular place to vacation."

We stayed on June 22-24th, 2007, with our two daughters and a friend of theirs. We stayed in a camper next to the camp store. We thought the foot traffic might be a problem but actually it was enjoyable meeting people walking by our site [13-A]. We stayed in a tent down by the waterfall two Octobers ago and had so much fun. We enjoyed ourselves just as much this time, too. Our girls even gathered up the courage to sing Karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights. The singing and dancing is so much fun to watch. God bless you for putting together such a great get-a-way for families! Well be back!

We weren't there for about five or six years came back in the beginning of October and it didn't change., still just as nice and clean.

For people who haven't been there the things to do there is fishing, swimming in the pool, karaoke, playing games in the game room, miniature golf, Hey Rides, and so many other things.

There is also a river behind the campsite which has a waterfall at the bottom.

We have been coming to your campground now for at least five years. We are always bringing our children and their friends. I feel so comfortable to let them ride their bikes and walk the campground at their leisure. They love to tube down the river and sit in the hot tubs. In july we got three tent sites and brought two whole familys with us and had a great time. even the big rain storm didnt stop us. we plan on making it an annual event from now on. we are planning to come in october for one of the halloween weekends too. so i guess we will see you all then. thanks for having us.
