What a great find! We are staying here a month while doing some work in the area. Monthly rate is $400, which includes all utilities. Weekly rate is $150 and not sure of nightly rate. It is an older mobile home park, and there are a few here but overall it's long-term RV campers. BUT they have great pull-throughs for people wanting to stay one night. Some very shaded (#25 is the best!) and some full sun. This park is probably more suited to overnighters or someone needing to stay a while. Everyone in the park has been very nice. It's quiet. The owner is great! Very friendly, very accommodating. He rides around checking the park numerous times each day. You're allowed to have packages and mail delivered to the front office. Laundry room and bathrooms are always clean. It's a very basic park, no frills, but a great value. It's situated in a neighborhood that seems to be safe. We've had no problems. Allowed us to park our 14' enclosed trailer on site at no extra charge. Worried me at first because no list of rules were given, no special instructions, just a warm welcome. And all the residents here have been great. We camped at Shady Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

It's actually a pretty nice KOA, tucked back in the woods, easy access down a paved county road but our stay wasn't without incident. It looks like the one-night stayers are at the very front of the park which was nice - easy in, easy out and mostly pull-through sites. We stayed in the upper level to the far right, back of the park. When you get assigned a "pull-through" or "back-in" site make sure it's actually full pull-through or single back-in, not pulling in to be bumper to bumper with an RV in front of you (site 74). That would have been fine but there was not enough room for our 40' MH and full size truck. When I made the reservation I was very specific about the size we needed but did not get what was promised. They did not charge extra to park our enclosed trailer, which was nice, but getting it parked in the spot they wanted it wasn't all that easy. When I complained about the site I was told there was a 30 amp site available but no 50s for our size. We expressed our displeasure with the arrangement seeing as I'd made reservations for 3 days and told them upfront what we needed. After a lengthy discussion they allowed us to park in site 83, which is 30 amp, but use the 50 amp service from site 82. It really wasn't big enough for our needs but was better than site 74. (And even though site 82 wouldn't be rented out they would not allow us to park the truck or trailer in that site). With all that being said, it is a nice park, they have lots to do, and we didn't have any trouble getting around with the MH. We talked with another camper who had the same problem we did - called ahead with specifics, told no problem, then got put in a site too small for their needs. They'd been there about a week and watched the site next to them be vacant most nights and it would have fit their rig. They asked to be moved and the park refused. Not sure if the person who makes campsite assignments knows how to fit people in or not. But we would not stay there again and the other campers said they would not return either. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Motorhome.

Great little park not too far off the interstate and easy access. Full hookups and numerous pull-through sites. Not a "resort" type or destination park but it has the basics, it's priced right, and it's clean. They accept Passport America - please pay with cash. Gravel, level sites. Strong Wi-Fi near the front of the park. We stayed one night in our 40' MH with truck pulling a 14' enclosed trailer. Since the park wasn't full they allowed us to park the truck and trailer in the site next door without charging extra. Would be excellent for a stop-over or visiting the area for a few days. We camped at Wills Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
