This campground is great for a stopover while traveling. It’s a mile or two off of I-95, about 12 miles north of Richmond. There are only 17 sites here just off of Route 1, with 11 of them being pull-throughs. Behind the campground is the mobile home park, also Kosmo Village. There are no bathroom/shower facilities and no one at the office. We made a reservation by phone, and a traffic cone was left in our site marking it as reserved. If you drive in, there is an area to fill out an envelope with info and drop into a slot with your cash. The sites are gravel & level. I didn’t need to unhitch because the pull-through was plenty long. Received several on-air TV stations with the use of antennae. The only negatives are that it’s very close to Route 1 where the traffic is 24/7 and there was a very bright parking lot light which shown into our bedroom. No tents allowed.

Very clean campground. Great pool. At least two children's playgrounds. Newer and clean bath house, laundry building. Plenty of activities. Internet is very slow and during evenings, probably when most are using it, it gets pretty much impossible to use. It appeared to me that the nice wooded sites are held for seasonal use. We were in an open area with direct sunlight during the evening hours, even with the awning down.

We happened to get in here just before the rate goes up for summer. On June 20th, the same site goes for $69/night! This campground is set back a bit from the road and seems to have it all. I can see why it’s so popular with families in the summer. Only a few miles from the beach, it has a lake for swimming and a pool. There are many permanent sites around the campground. There is an Arcade on the property with about 6 pool tables, 4 ski-ball machines and many other games for the kids. Since my wife and I camp alone and are older, it probably wouldn’t be for us in mid-summer…I can only imagine all the kids and families here! But for young families, this is the place to be, I’m sure. I didn’t find the employees here to be very friendly. I asked one employee a question and she told me to go stand by the counter and someone would be out soon. For the most part the property is clean and neat, but a few of the older permanent trailers are in need of cleaning and maintenance. I visited only one of the bath houses and it looked like new. Very clean. They do charge to take a shower, which I find a negative because of the high cost of rent.

This campground is set back about a mile from the main highway. The road from the main highway is in poor condition with many potholes. When arriving at the entrance, there is an unmanned booth and no security gates. The office/store is located halfway around the main CG road. We arrived late, drove around to the office, which was closed, as we expected, to get our site info which they said they would leave for us, and then discovered that our site was located back near the entrance. Our site was level. In the morning, I noticed that although the CG was practically empty, our site was located adjacent to their storage area where 4 or 5 old dirty trailers sat in weeds (not a pretty sight). I went over the office at 9am and the store was closed and had no posted hours. After lunch, we left for a few hours and while we were out, I received an email welcoming us to the CG and to “come down to the office to check in as soon as possible and pay your remaining balance.” Sometime during the late afternoon, I did just that, but the office was once again closed. I returned at 5:45pm and this time was greeted by a CG employee. I was not impressed with customer service after receiving that email. The public restrooms are clean but very dated. Had to hold shower valve open for shower. There is a lake with a swimming area on the property and the beach has several covered picnic tables. There are a couple of pavilions on the property, a volleyball court, softball field and game room. There is also a “barn” on the property. At least that’s what it’s called on the CG map. The barn is a small 2 story building that is located in the middle of a row of campsites. It really should be torn down because it’s about to fall down. It appears to me that this property may double as a swim club in the summer months (or did at some point in time). If we return here, it is only because we have family in the area and this most accessible CG to them. The campground as a whole seemed to need much cleanup and work.

Quirky campground set in rural PA just near a beautiful covered bridge (clearance 12’-1”). Appears to be several permanent or seasonal campers on the “hill” area of the CG. Many in need of work and a good cleaning. We were on the lower, more level area. Did not need to level at this site. Store and office were closed by 6pm when we arrived. The next day we went to square up and found that even though it was 2 weeks before Halloween, because it was a “holiday” weekend, that we could not get discount as Good Sam members. We did, however, get a discount for Thursday night and Sunday night. We were also told that they held THREE Halloween weekends in October, all considered “holidays”. Apparently campgrounds can call any weekend a “holiday” and not give discounts. We were not happy about that, especially since we didn’t see this info on the website, or on any of the paperwork. Internet reception is not so good. Bathrooms were clean.

This campground apparently has recently changed names. It was Travel Trailer Village. Certainly not a bad place for an overnight stay. About 3 or 4 miles from I-95. Most sites are pull throughs and about 40% have water, electric and sewer. There is also free Wi-Fi (which works very well). This campground is 32 miles from the White House, if you’re in the area to tour DC, and just a few miles from Quantico. They use a code for the bathing house. Not sure why. We were only there for one night, but the place was busy, especially for a Monday night.

Most state campgrounds don’t offer E, W & S but this one does. However, even though I made reservations a couple of months ago, there were no sewer sites available that my 31’ trailer would fit. However they put us near the office where we could still get internet reception. Internet is only available in and around the office/store. The site was a bit skinny, and needed some pruning to give us a little room. Since it’s a state park there is an ordinance against cutting plant life, etc., but thankfully a Ranger came out to the site and did a lot of trimming to give us some extra space on our first day. Sandy soil and a short walk to the beach. Campsites are level. After campers check out, I noticed a guy comes to site and cleans out ashes from fire ring, rakes and straightens up picnic table to make it good for the next campers.

Great stop for an overnight while on the way up or down I-95. Arrived after 6 pm which gives us the $25.00 special. With that, there is no cable TV. Most other sites at the resort do have cable. All sites have E/W/S. The resort has free internet and I was able to connect easily. The best thing was that the site was right on level. All I did was drop my corner jacks. Didn’t even have to unhitch from the truck. But I must give an 8 only because I love to have an evening campfire and only a small percentage of the sites included a fire ring and I believe none of those were available.

After a long day on the road, there was a bit of a mix-up while checking in. However, the new owners were apologetic, very friendly, and helpful. Wooded campground with plenty of pull through sites with concrete pads, including ours. Beautiful pond with ducks looking for a hand-out! On the weekend, a couple times a day, the owner drove the kiddies (and some parents) around the park on the “train” ride which is a tractor with 3 trailers decorated like a circus train. The owner was quite helpful and answered all of my questions, and then some. We will be back! Facilities include the old bath house with 2 toilets and 2 showers in each and a new bath house which has four separate doors. Each has a shower, toilet and dressing area.

We just bought our first trailer and decided on this campground because of its close proximity to our home. Staff was friendly. Clean restrooms. Thankfully, our neighbor was very helpful in helping us back in to our site. I still need much practice in this area. I mentioned that this was our first trip to the office staff and thought they’d send out a staff member to help with that, so this was a bit disappointing. The Wi-Fi was not bad, but couldn’t connect every time I tried. Cable TV only had 11 channels. Enjoyed a couple of the activities they hosted. Did not use the pool, but it appeared to be crystal clear. Site was level, with plenty of space. Campground is well maintained. Had a great time and will return here.
