I normally avoid KOA since having a bad experience with children running wild all through the night at a park in another state. Chose this park for location as we're in area visiting civil war sites. Stayed 3 nights and would like to have stayed longer but schedule didn't allow. Great people on staff, wonderful clean hot showers, nice pool, clean and reasonably priced laundry. And while we saw children in a few areas we never heard or saw them out after hours. This was one of our best stops on the trip. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed overnight heading north (April) and again heading south (May). This is a very nice campground with shaded sites and very peaceful. Both our sites were relatively level but we saw some that seemed at an incline. The hookups were well placed. The drawback, especially for an overnight stay, is how far it is from the highway. The roads are somewhat confusing and our GPS never did "find" it. Fortunately, coming from the south, the signs kept us going in the right direction. By the time we were heading south, we knew where we were going. Because of the distance from the highway, I looked for another option, but this still seemed like the best in the area. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here April 22-26. This was our second stay. We where here in February, 2019 which was our first stop on our very FIRST trip in our fifth wheel. Sites range from very shady to open. We were on Site #95 which was perfect. We love it here, it's nestled in a valley away from any road noise. All facilities were very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Cable and WiFi were good. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here for 16 nights in a patio site that overlooked the pond. We're generally here about once a year and have been coming here since 2010. Lots of improvements since our first visit. Interior roads are paved with gravel sites. Plan on needing to level. New management this year, but customer service is as good as it was with the previous management. We found the WiFi usable unless the campground was full. Verizon Wireless OK for talk & text, but struggled with data. There still appears to be some water drainage issues in the middle of the park which left the main cabin area muddy during our visit. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Internet service via WiFi or Verizon Wireless was spotty at times and generally unreliable for heavy data use. Better to travel north on US 1 to Cosner's Corner to Panera Bread or Starbucks for reliable data.

Campground is small and quiet, which is what we enjoy. Come here every year because it is close to home for our first excursion of the season. The entire grounds are very clean, staff was constantly riding around checking all areas. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice camp store for any basic necessities you may have forgotten. We will surely return. Surprising full for what I thought would be an early weekend, but since it is right off I-95, there were a lot of 1 nighters passing though the area. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Motorhome.

This little gem was a great stop. The camp itself is small, but very well kept. It was not too far off the beaten path to get to. My site was level and had excellent sat reception. Power was good and the water pressure was adequate. The only reason I did not give it a full five start rating was the fact we started hearing the train whistle at 4am and every hour after, but was far enough off in the distant, that a sound sleeper probably would not hear it. This is a great lace to stay. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Really nice CG. Like all KOA's they are overpriced. The owner was really nice in helping me get another reservation at a different KOA that was not answering there phone. The biggest complaint was the mosquitoes. Even this late in the season there were a lot. Could not enjoy sitting outside. Would not stay again because of that.

As KOA's go, this one is relatively small and quiet. Located about 10 miles south of Fredericksburg, which itself is 40 miles each way from Washington DC and Richmond. The park is mostly wooded, with the majority of the sites in heavy shade. The main roads are paved, but the sites are gravel and grass. I had asked for a satellite friendly site and our pull thru site (#93) was located in the middle of the park next to the pond, with no one behind us. Very nice view out the back window. Utilities are quite far from the pad and I stretched every bit of 20' of sewer hose to reach the drain. Wifi is pretty good, even with a full park. Park has only one bathhouse, located at the main office and quite a walk from the back forty. Medium sized pool with only one table and a few chairs which were crowded on the holiday weekend. Small playground and a few riding toys for the kids. Medium sized pond on site that allows fishing and saw a couple of large fish caught. Nice enough park but over priced. Good location for day trips. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Fredericksburg is quaint and historic tracing its lineage to colonial times with George Washington growing up across the Rappahannock river and his mother, Mary, living in town in her later years. Many civil war battles were fought in and around the town, including Chancellorsville, Wilderness and Spotsylvania Courthouse.

We had a reservation for a FHU pull through site for an overnight stay. Check in went smoothly and we were given an escort to our site. Unfortunately, someone was already parked on the site the young woman was told to bring us to. We waited while she contacted the office. The camper that was there was locked up and the tow dolly was empty...car gone. The office said they had no idea who was on the site and therefore, had no way of contacting them. I find this bizarre. We were attempting to check in and get on this reserved site at 3:00 in the afternoon. Are you telling me that not one employee noticed this supposedly unregistered vehicle on a site in their park all day? We were told the only other FHU 50 amp site available was a back in. Fine, we'll take it. The site was long enough for our 40 foot coach, but not for our tow car, which I had to park on an adjacent empty site. We were having some trouble leveling the coach....no wonder, the rear jacks and wood supports we use had sunk about a foot into the ground. Along with straws, plastic lids, wrappers, and the other trash on the site were some pieces of wood. We were able to pull the coach forward and utilize the trash planks to help keep the rear jacks from sinking again. It wasn't until we pulled into this park that I remembered staying here before...on that visit we had issues with the power hook up. It is unfortunate that there isn't much competition nearby, perhaps that would keep the owners/management a little more on their game. I will say that the young woman who was escorting us to our site was extremely apologetic about the situation and was very polite. The pool was in use and looked clean. The store had a lot of gift items, a few grocery items and some camping/RV supplies. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Motorhome.

We reserved an overnight stop weeks ago, with full hookups, for our 40' MH with 4 slides. We were coming in after a week at a state park with only electric, thus needed to tend to tanks. We left that campground with enough time to roll into this one around 4, so that we could enjoy our evening. Our sire, #100, was so narrow that our curbside slide was about 2' from the neighboring sites sewer. It was so narrow we couldn't even site outside in chairs, there was simply no room. We paid the same price as others camping, and feel this narrow site should only be used in desperation of the campground is full. We spent the night indoors, something we rarely do when camping. The campground is pretty, but this bargain basement site wasn't worth the full price charged. Overnighters or not, no one should be given this site. I've enclosed a picture of outside our door. Do not give this site to people claiming "it's the most requested site". Even if a camper is in for one night, they should be given the same quality/size site as others for the price. If you must use this site is should be as a last resort and extremely discounted. We camped at Fredericksburg / Washington DC South KOA in a Motorhome.

Great shade trees, spacious lots; friendly, helpful staff, solid 50 Amp service, WiFi, dog friendly but good grief, the place is covered in goose @*&!#. We picked up after our dogs but wondered why. Got goose crap on the shoes, hose, entrance mat. I think the campground should consider having a small crew pick-up daily. Otherwise, good location, easy off Interstate 95 and very nice country ambiance. Beautiful ducks and geese and plenty of goose poop to go around.
