Campgrounds near Monticello

We plan on stopping at Jefferson's Monticello on our way to Maine next month. I noticed that there is a KOA close by and was wondering if any Forum members have stayed here or anyone who is familiar with this campground or who would recommend another campground in the area. We really don't prefer KOA campgrounds if there are others in the area.

Thanks, Bronk

This is a great resource for finding RV parks and campgrounds:

We're going to be traveling from Arizona to West Virginia in mid July and then to Seattle before we head home in mid August. I plan to use Allstays extensively.

We stayed at the KOA last fall. It was OK, not special, but also not too far away. I would stay there again, but only because I don't know of a better place. It's actually a beautiful place out in the woods and trees. You might like it.

I live west of Charlottesville in Greenwood - the KOA is not a typical KOA as it is wooded.

Check out Misty mountain camp resort virginia camping, waltons mountain, - it's not too far from Monticello and it is closer to the Brew Ridge Trail area - BrewRidgeTrail.com | Brew Ridge Trail. There are a few country stores close by and you're close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive.

Enjoy my neck of the woods! It's a great place to be.

Charlottesville KOA

I stayed there earlier this year. I found it to be decent. If you like nature, you can watch beavers in the pond about sundown. I will also recommend lunch in the Michie Tavern just below Monticello.

KOA in Charlottesville

We are actually there right now! We like it, the folks are friendly and while we are new to RVing, we have been happy there. It is WAY closer to Monticello than any of the other area places.
