Our New Favorite Campground: KOA Luray Virginia

Our Favorite Campground So Far

On our recent 2017 Summer Road Trip, we found a new favorite campground. Our trip started in Luray, Virginia at the Luray KOA. From the time we drove into the entrance, we were amazed.

Our first impression was the beautiful rural scenery, and how well maintained the campground was. It is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and farm land. There is not a bad view anywhere you look. It was love at first site, lol. (Sorry couldn’t help myself.)

The Staff

When we arrived to check in, Jennifer was there to greet us with a smile. She didn’t like the site they had us at, so she changed it to another one. Our check in process was so smooth and easy. She gave us a map with the route to our spot highlighted and we located it with no problems.

The Campsites

The campsites have large level gravel pads. Deluxe sites also come with large concrete patios with either a patio table and 4 chairs or a picnic table. You also get two Adirondack chairs and lovely stone fire pits. Our site had a separate concrete patio with the chairs next to the fire pit. #25 is the best site in the campground in my opinion.

This campground is so well maintained. The grass is like gorgeous green carpet. The chairs and picnic tables all coordinate and look freshly painted. The campground is spotless. They have both pull through and back in sites with 20/30 or 30/50 amp service. All RV sites have water and sewer hook ups.

Conveniently Located

If by some chance you run out of things to do at the campground, they are close to so many great local activities! They are less than 5 miles away from lovely Luray, Virginia. It amazed me at how much the small town has to offer! You are also only about 20 minutes drive from Shenandoah National Park. We always encourage you to #FindYourPark! No visit to the area would be complete without stopping by Luray Caverns, a US Natural Landmark and geological wonder.
