This is a nice regional park with spacious, well shaded sites and provides a great location from which to tour Mt. Vernon and other Washington D.C. attractions. Our site was somewhat unlevel and we had difficulty hooking up to water due to a broken faucet part on the park's hook-ups. The camp is very quiet at night and frequently patrolled by park staff. Some maintenance and cleaning seemed to be overlooked (trash left behind in some sites, soap dispenser empty over several days). One other nice benefit was the bike trail that connected the campground to Gunston Hall and Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge. Overall, we would definitely stay here again while touring in the area. Our rate reflects $2 per night surcharge because we are not residents of Northern Virginia.
This is a small, older park located very close to Mammoth Cave National Park. Sites are packed gravel and mostly level; many are pull-through and the hook-ups were in good working order. Lots of very large motorhomes and 5th wheels stayed here on what appeared to be a Fall migration to points south. There did not appear to be any permanent sites. The small pond was nice to look out over and we enjoyed almost everything about our stay. The exception was several barking dogs that seemed to go on for hours and a group of weekenders who came in Friday night and loudly debated every topic from sports to religion; the owners should monitor camp noise more closely. Other than a few noisy campers which may have been an anomaly, this is a friendly, relaxing place to stay when visiting the area.
This campground bills itself as an adult park since it has no playground, pool, gameroom or anything else to entertain kids. If what you are looking for is a quiet, scenic setting, centrally located to many of the attractions in Lancaster County: you will love this place. Amish horse drawn buggys clattered up and down the road behind our site during the day and at night all was quiet. The owners were very friendly offering advice and literature on what to see in the area as well as hosting a free ice cream social on Saturday evening. We met RVers from all over the US, many of whom had been on the road for months. The campground does have two distinct halves, one completely shaded by tall oak trees and the other more open and grassy. The open area had slightly larger sites and 50 amp service while the shaded part had sites that were shorter but still had 30 amp plus water and sewer. The tight site which required some manuvering even to get our 23 ft trailer into, is the only reason I didn't give this campground a 10.
This is an OK campground but not great. We spent a weekend here so we could kayak at Blue Marsh Lake nearby. The sites were fairly tight and not very private, hookups were oddly placed and required us to borrow a 30 amp extension cord from the office. Also, the road noise mentioned in other reviews was always present and quite loud at times. We'll probably look elsewhere when heading to this area again.
Canyon Country Campground is our idea of an ideal campground. The staff was very helpful when making my reservation as well as upon arrival. We were directed to our site by the owner who also helped us position the trailer in our site. Water and electric hookups were top quality and looked almost new. Our site was wooded and fairly private, campground noise was minimal and both the staff as well as other campers were friendly. Wood, when bought at the store was delivered directly to our site. We enjoyed the hiking trail which leads from the campground over to Leonard Harrison State Park and the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. We spent 4 days here and would have loved to have a whole week. The area is a goldmine for outdoor activities.
