Luray KOA is either a fairly new park or recently renovated. It is located a bit south of Washington DC on the Virginia side and makes a good jumping off place for exploring the city. We were here to explore Shenandoah national Park. Due to its location, it is a very expensive park, one of the priciest we’ve stayed at.
The grounds are very nice. The park is located amidst small farms and is surrounded by corn fields and meadows. We found it very bucolic and relaxing. Luray KOA’s best feature are its large and well-appointed parking spaces. They offer tons of room to get situated and every spot was well groomed with crushed gravel. Despite the hilly terrain, each spot had a good level area for parking.
The amenities, like the showers and bathrooms, were all in good shape. None of them were truly impressive, but they were all kept clean and supplied. The pool is fairly small, but again, it was clean and inviting. The furniture supplied at each site was some of the nicest we’ve seen. Glass tables at a campground!?
The only reservation is the price, which is huge and frankly, not entirely justified. Cherry Hill, our previous campground near DC was similarly priced, but its facilities and amenities were far more extensive than those at Luray. I’m giving them a recommendation for the quality of their sites, but if you want a bargain, this is not the place to stay.
