Of the campgrounds we stayed at, some were hits and some were misses. I'm attaching a short review on them in this post.
HARRISONBURG/SHENANDOAH VALLEY KOA
Our stay here was brief - one night only. 71 sites and fairly nice. The campground was heavily wooded and it was obvious they tried to maintain a natural setting. Our site, 52, a pull through, did not have sewer, which wasn't a big deal for one night. The campground was quiet and wood was delivered to our site, to include kindling. The campground had several free-range chickens on site.
CATSKILL ADVENTURE RESORT
This was also a one night stay in NY. When I called to make a reservation, I requested a 50 am pull through, which he said was no problem. When we got there, the pull throughs were all 30 amp, which would have been a big issue if it had been any warmer out.
This is a large campground with a lot of improvements going on, to include a new clubhouse. The manager did try to sell me a timeshare program that I was not interested in. Also, be aware that on weekends there is a minimum two night stay.
STURBRIDGE RV RESORT
This was a Thousand Trails campground and if it had been our one and only experience with TT, we would have cancelled our membership immediately. The majority of campers are seasonal, with very few visitors. The sites were so packed together that many rvs could not extend their awnings. Permanent sites were not taken care of and the staff just looked at you with blank stares if you requested anything. For example, the first site they put us on was so uneven that we could not find a way to level our coach, so I went to the office to request another site. They had no clue what I was talking about. I also noticed that it was a "find your own campsite" type of resort. The staff did not help at all in finding sites, and the bigger rigs had a very difficult time maneuvering in such tight spaces and corners.
They did have a nice little pond for fishing and a nice indoor pool and hot tub. But the lack of space in the sites would stop me from ever going back.
This campground was very large with large sites. Again, the first come first serve, go find your own campsite. Many people may appreciate that but after driving all day, being led to our campsite would have been nice.
The campsites themselves were very large, but also very uneven. And, on our site, we couldn't walk until we had spent half an hour cleaning up all the dog poop that had been left behind.
They advertise that H Loop is free. However, other loops, you have to pay for 50 amp service. This was untrue. We paid over $50 a night for the campsite, an additional $3 per night for 50 amp as well as a couple of other fees that brought a two day stay to over $160. And again, it should have been free as a Thousand Trails member, but we got the runaround.
We've decided not to renew our Thousand TRails membership. Our experience has not made it worth the $400 per year. Not everyone may agree with us, but that was our experience.
This little jewel, nestled near Floyd, VA was an absolute dream! It was 25 miles off I-81, but worth every mile. Chantilly Farms is a destination for festivals and other venues. New is a small rv park perched on a hilltop. The sites include back in, pull through and tent sites and each one has a spectacular view of the rolling fields and forests. There was no traffic, only three neighbors and a view to die for. At only $30 a night, it was worth every penny we spent. We hated to leave the next morning and are looking forward to going back for a longer stay.
