  • Lexington/Natural Bridge KOA -- Virginia

    This was pretty much a straight shot down I-81 from Cooperstown, NY. We left there just before 10:00 for our trip of about 230 miles. We arrived here at the Lex/NB KOA about 3:30. It is a nice campground. Once again, heavily treed, almost all sites are pull thru. With so many trees, I'm glad we got here early enough to get an escort to our site. There were a couple of tight places where we could have done damage to the rig if the escort were not here. This cg is built on a hill so nearly all sites are stair stepped into the hill.

    It includes 50 amp, water, sewer, and cable. No extra charge for cable. WIFI is free, but it only works at the sites by the office. With so many trees, satellite is not going to be able to find a signal. darn it.

    The weather has been perfect and this place only being a half mile or so off the freeway, you cannot hear any road noise. I kinda like it. However, it is $43 per night.

    We'll be here two nights. So tomorrow we will press on to Charlotte, NC.

    Picts are below.

    WE stayed there last month on the way home from CT. Not a bad park and quiet. We stayed there a couple of nights and took in the natural bridge and sites around there. Don't waste your time on the light show at the bridge at night...
    Only complaint I had about the KOA was that the owner would not let me take a newspaper(delivered at 5AM...office opens after 8AM) and pay her later...sort of ticked me off..like I would steal the damn paper..Got one at the end of the street instead..

      I did find cheap diesel in Roanoke today. $2.79 per gallon. I put 42 gallons in. I guess I needed it. ha.

        Things are bad when we think $2.79 is cheap. I chuckled the other day when I fueled at $2.78 (36 gals) and then 25 miles down the road it was $3.09. Wow, I "saved" $0.31 a gallon. ?

          After coming from Niagara Falls, NY area where diesel was $3.29 per gallon, I do believe $2.79 is indeed cheap. Hopefully it will be cheaper in Texas when we get back there in November.

          I am in North Carolina now just north of Charlotte. I just filled up for $2.94. A station right across the street was $3.09. Makes no sense!!!!:censored:

            Stayed here over Thanksgiving. New owner a few years ago has been doing upgrades to the campground. New area has been developed which is flat and tree-less, but is all gravel and no grass. I'm still not sure if satellite would work there since there is quite a hill near the sites (and I don't have satellite so did not test). As stated earlier in this thread, most of the sites are older and stair-stepped into the hill sides. Sites however are quite level for the RV's. They have added decks to many sites so that they have a nice level area out from the RV doors. We had a great site, very large area for the fire ring and picnic table. However, if our daughter's rig was not on the off-door side site from ours, it would not have been nice at all, since their site was narrow and the deck and picnic table was right against our rig and since they were up hill from us, looked right into our rig's windows. Our daughter would not have liked her site at all since it was so narrow, except she and her family were in our site 98% of the time, and did not really use her site. Bottom line is the site you are assigned will determine how happy you are with this campground. Owners are super nice. Lots of areas to walk, around pond, in woods - over 20 acres of land to use. Lots to do in the area (caverns, safari drive through, zoo, Natural Bridge, Lexington (VMI, Stonewall Jackson home), Blue Ridge, more). Don't forget the Pink Cadillac Restaurant near the campground entrance - very popular with the locals! And yes, there is a pink Cadillac out front.

                    ...but that is why I updated the thread. If I stayed somewhere else, I would have started a new thread.
