LOVE KOA. IT IS SAFE, FRIENDLY, 24 HOUR SECURITY, CLEAN GROUNDS, NICE POOL. LOVE THE TROLLEY U CAN IT FOR 2.OO
ALL DAY, THAT IS AWESOME. ALWAYS STAY AT THIS KOA AND I BEEN CAMPING THERE FOR YEARS. PEACE OF MIND, NO WORRIES. 2 MILES FOR SUPER WALMART. CONVIENCE!
this was not the place to come. no pools open. grounds still being worked on. eployees don't really seemed to be to worried about any of this. i guess they are being paid instead of like the rest of us who are doing the paying. i guess i would be a little less ruffled if someone offered an apology or it wouold really be nice for some type of refund or discount since it was avertised that there were 2 pools that would be open like the other campgrounds in the area.
overall the campground is good. We had a good time except when it was time to take showers. The showers were so disgusting and we went to each bath house looking for a clean one but they were all horrible. 2 nights we were there and one shower house didn't even work. Keep your flip flops on!! Stopped up showers, hair clumps floating around in the showers, totally gross. The rest of the grounds were kept up and were ok.
Checking in at the Rawlins, Wyo KOA gave a whole new meaning to waking on the wrong side of the bed. This manager really needs an attitude adjustment. Not only did we not feel the love he was down right curt, almost disgusted that he had to deal with you! Our experiences in the past couple of years have been excellent until we hit here.......we won't be back to this one........it's already voided in our book. He reminded me of why I had chosen to stay away from KOA's years ago.
The staff of this KOA doesn't care about its clients they just care about money and will charge you anything they can to make a buck with little regard to your camping or RVing experience.
VIiginia Beach is a nice place to stay but not at KOA.
I wouldn't stay there again. We weren't impressed
-Fun things for kids to do (As long as they don't cancel it)
-Pool (Could use some good scrubbing on the sides to get the brown stuff off)
-Trash pickup at 8am & 4pm
-Sites are not maintained. We were first put in a site with mud. We would have walked out of our camper and stepped right into the mud. It would be nice if they put more gravel on the sites. (They did move us to another site, which was nice but still no gravel, just dirt.)
-Family activities were canceled because someone rented the pavilion there. What about the campers? Why do we have to sacrifice?
-Actual staff was not very friendly (Summershiners were very friendly!)
-Pool does have brown grimy stuff on the sides. (But they do have a cute family of ducks that swims in one of the pools)
We were very much disappointed. We did go over to Holiday Trav-l Park and we will be staying there in the future. We booked a full hook-up pull through site. When we got to the site we were first assigned (with the mud) I went into the office and complained about the mud. They offered a site and we went to look at it. It wasn't full hook-up. I was getting irritated so my husband went in. We ended up getting a full hook-up back-in site. I have a feeling the pricing maybe different but we were never offered a refund. Activities were canceled because of a family reunion at the pavilion. The "roads" to get to the sites have many potholes and could use some serious fill dirt and raking.
I did not go into the bath houses so I can not say whether they were clean or not.
As far as the jet noise...you really can't get away from it if you're staying in VA Beach. Just an FYI - The latest we heard the jets was 11:30pm. And that was only one night.
Overall, if you're looking for a campground with no bells and whistles, stay at KOA.
I don't know if the owner(s) read the bad reviews, but I can confirm that this campground is one of the nicest I've been in the past 2 years. The laundromat area has over 15 machines, and are quite recent. Service was great, and help was readily available. I came in with a mangled RV, got the parts overnighted to the campground and some staff helped me fix my machine.
Be aware of the jet noise, as the campground is very close to the Oceana Naval Air Station, and there were F-18 Hornets taking and landing every 2 minutes, even at 9:30 PM. It might be a little less noisy at other campgrounds in the area, as this KOA is probably less than a couple miles from the runway at bird's view... But the view of these birds is fantastic!!!
