Crabtree Falls Campground, Tyro, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed our stay at this campground-twice. This campground is a smaller campground located in woods. The road to get there is very winding and hilly. After checking in at a store that had very good inventory, parking, and even hot food available, we found that the level sites were a bit rougher than other campgrounds and although we had a 28ft. fifth-wheel, there was only one or two sites that could accommodate that size. Most were smaller campers. The sites were neither graveled nor paved, but each had a fire ring. Electrical hookups were 30-amp. There were a few pull-throughs. It was a very quiet campground with one clean bathhouse as well as an outdoor field hydrant-useful for cleaning feet or fish. One of the best features was a large pond/lake good for kayaking or canoeing. There is also a separate pond for fishing. The campground is close to Crabtree Falls, which is a wonderful nearby hike to beautiful waterfalls. Management was most helpful and a friendly camp host came by each day to make sure all was well and to help anyone needing it, as well as pick up trash. Our camping friends liked it and would go back again. We camped at Crabtree Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Endless Caverns Resort, New Market, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Please read the entire review before deciding to camp here. The gated campground was easy to find (adjacent to the Caverns) and well-marked with a beautiful approach toward the Massanutten mountain. The paved parking lot was spacious and fifth-wheel rigs and motorhomes would have no trouble parking while registering. It should be noted that payment for the ENTIRE stay is required UP FRONT. There are over 100 graveled sites here, all are perpendicular to the mountainside and level and roomy. Imagine a giant handprint on the side of mountain with fingers reaching up. There were loops that were roughly like each finger, so you can camp up high or down low. There is at least one hiking trail through the mountain. Each site, however, is lined with large rock and since the campground is in a wooded setting, the chance for seeing snakes is high, especially in summer. In fact, we experienced seeing a RATTLESNAKE that emerged from a site two away from our site; there were many children and a few dogs in the area at that time, so beware! The pool was clean and zero-entry, which was nice for handicapped people. It was adjacent to a sizable building that has a very large theater-type screen for watching sports. There was also a good-sized fish pond at the bottom of the mountain that was out of sight of the campground itself. There were plenty of 30 and 50-amp connections and water was easy to hook up to. There was no Wi-Fi available. Walking or motoring up and down the mountain to get from the sites to the amenities proved to be a problem for us. Also, we had to use 4WD to pull into our sites, but that is not required for most of the sites there. The pool house and the bathrooms were clean and on the whole, the campground was well looked-after. Trash pickup was a plus. Finally a word about the management. First, I asked about snakes before making two reservations-one for four days and one for a month. I was told they had seen no poisonous snakes that year. Since then I found out that that particular mountain is known for the large number of copperheads and rattlesnakes its habitat supports. Second, my husband was diagnosed with a terminal illness from which he died seven weeks later—during the month we were planning to camp. Soon after the diagnosis, I approached management in person to politely request a refund—at least a partial one—under the circumstances. Not only did they not refund a penny, but they never even communicated with me after my request-either by phone or in writing. The campsite is owned by a parent company out of New York, and the actions, or lack thereof, were their decision. Two other camping couples who came with us told us they’d never go back to this campground due to the snake problem. (They did not know about my husband at the time we camped). We camped at Endless Caverns Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
