Note: This campground is located on the banks of the James River, just across from Scottsville, VA. If you love kayaking or tubing, this is an EXCELLENT riverside campground; you can rent theirs, or use your own, and they offer a shuttle up the river for a modest charge. The campground has lots of tent sites and caters to large tent-group camping during the summer months. RV sites are limited and often filled with contract workers (traveling nurses, power line workers, etc.). I felt the price was very high, for what you got, but....did I mention the beautiful James River is in your back yard? - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

Sites and access roads are a bit tight but we had no problems safely moving our Class A to and from our site. Only issue was we had no Verizon reception, and the CG wifi was mostly worthless except when I walked to the office at 9 am to get minimal reception for accessing emails. - Mark 5

First Impression: Very small. Not the typical, large KOA format normally seen. Neat and clean. Tucked back in the woods. Safety: No concerns. Access: from I-64, exit 121, go south on route 20 (Scottsville Rd) about 9 miles to Red Hill Road, turn right. About 1½ miles on right, huge KOA sign. Municipal and CG road in good condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Token store with snacks, trinkets, and RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. My price reflects the KOA discount. Facilities: Pool. No spa or fitness room. Game room ($). Large, clean laundry room. Exceptional restrooms/showers, quite new, clean, no mold. Propane sales. Small playground. Off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are wide, packed gravel in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Tent areas, one "tee-pee", a few cabins. Sites are all nearby-to-spacious, sufficiently level, grass/gravel, pull-off, pull-through, and back-in, grass between. Pedestals at rear-to-middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate well-water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 4" above ground level. No patios (but 2 deluxe sites get a paver patio) with usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Marginal satellite views. Free cable TV. OTA TV found about 10 clear channels. Free Wi-Fi but only 1 antenna at office, poor coverage when distant. Verizon phone and 4G at 0-1 bar. Single stream recycle dumpster. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, traffic, or interstate noise. Bug Report (mid August): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: no good place for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Nice. - StephenK

Staff was extremely rude. No lights in campground. Bathhouse inconveniently located. - Shanm

Campground host sounded pleasant on the phone but assigned us a site directly across from the dumpsters. We objected then were given the option to choose from any other ORANGE site. All other sites were not very level, but we chose orange 7 and achieved level with four inches of blocking under both front wheels. Site was a bit trashy from previous occupants, but well-shaded under deciduous trees. Our site backed up to the inflatable bouncey pad - which the children loved - their screams and excited voices echoed throughout the day until nightfall. Easy walking along gravel roads; fellow campers and host not as friendly as in the South. Lake was more of a large, moldy puddle due to no rain for more than a month. Excellent electric service in spite of need for 40 feet of cord. Water pressure good, but spigot located at front of site - needed 40 feet of hose. Sewer available, but had to move coach off-level to access (needed 30 feet of sewer hose - only had 20 feet available). This was our second, and equally unsatisfying visit - we will not return. - D-S

We averaged $24 / night with Passport America ($46 without discount) for W / E50 / S / I. Our campsite was in a heavily wooded area with nice spacing between sites. Would definitely stay here again. - Teddi2

We stayed here on our way to Monticello. It looks like an old KOA campground. We have a 45' MH and are towing a Dodge 3500 truck. The roads getting to the campground are very narrow with no shoulder. It is a long drive from I-95.When we made our reservation, we asked for a pull-thru in the open. We were told we would have a pull-thru site that would fit our MH and truck. What we received was a back-to-back site. Upon check-in, we were given a map with directions to our site. There was no way we were going to get into our site because of parked cars all around our site. A man stopped us and told us to turn around and back in the other way. Another man stopped us and told us about a road that would get us to the back of our site so we could pull-thru. Luckily, the site behind us was empty or we would of never gotten into our site. They really need escorts AND better communication in the office. The park looks like an extended stay park and is not very appealing for the amount charged for the site. - Patdrin

Very nice sites with large concrete pads and attached patios. Each site includes a nice patio table and chairs. Gas grill available at each site. Variety of trees and shrubs at each site which provides some privacy. A few sites had hot tubs available. RV Park is part of a larger resort area with small lake, swimming pools, stables, mini-golf, and golf. Activities are very spread out and a long distance from campground. Golf carts are available to rent and may be a good idea.
Lots to do in the area. Various wineries nearby and President James Madison’s home is close. Charlottesville is about 30 miles away with plenty to do. Nearest grocery is about 6 miles. - glenthompson

Road going to RV area was on a hill; had a back-in site and the road went downhill and made it tough to back into. Had to put 3 blocks under tires on one side to make the trailer level side to side. Front to back is not too bad. The electric quality was good; electric good. Offered horseback riding; pontoon rides; mini golf. Three pools and hot tubs; general store; lots of walking trails and an abandoned golf course to walk on. Bluegreen Membership park; took the tour and got a prepaid MC and dollars to dough meal card. - Kerch Family

Interior roads are not marked properly and the directions that we were given to get to our site confused us so much that we had to go around twice to finally find our site. Interior roads were tight for our 39' 5th wheel. Cable TV did not work when we setup. Technician came out and added splitter to the site next to our site. Then later in the week the cable started going in and out with us for the last 3 days of our stay. Resort said that there was nothing that they could do about it Also some people were allowed to have more than two vehicles at their site and this caused problems when we went to leave making the interior roads even tighter. Also several campers had their dogs running loose and even one camper left their dog out all night causing the dog to bark a lot. Had to turn the TV up loud enough to cover the noise. Overall not a good camping trip. Probable will not camp here again. - dakota ev

Nice, quiet park about 15 miles west of Charlottesville. We stayed in the lower level, site #4, a pull thru. Although sites in this level tend to be fairly close together, our site was immediately adjacent to Stockton creek(with a wooded area across the creek) so there was no neighbors between us and the creek. Sites are gravel and somewhat level. Each site has a fire ring, wooden picnic table (in good shape - no splinters) and a small concrete patio. Interior roads (at least on the lower level) were paved with curves gentle enough for big rigs. We did not venture to the upper level, but have heard that interior roads there are more than tight for big rigs. Hook-up pedestals are conveniently placed for easy connections. Water pressure is about right; don't need a pressure reducer valve. Laundry facilities are a good ways from just about any camp site. There are four washers and dryers and the cost is $1.50/load for each. Laundry room is tight and not really set up to allow for folding clothes. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and constantly working to keep the park in good shape. The little store is well stocked with those items you didn't know you needed, but you don't want to take the the time to run up the road to Harris-Teeter (about 3 1/2 miles east). As others have mentioned, there is plenty to keep the kids busy, including fishing in Stockton creek. Suggest you check with folks in office on the need for state fishing license. We'll surely stay here again when we're in the area. - boardman

We only stayed one night. We had a pull-thru. Park was very nice. Very nice workers. I would stay again. WiFi was not very strong and very few people in the park. We also went through a strong rain storm and by the time we got to the RV park, the cable was out and did not get it back that night - pjstewart51
