Luray Virginia KOA bad management.

Made a reservation in early March for Memorial weekend and received confirmation the next day.
Over two weeks later the manager calls me to inform me that the owners want a three day reservation and she didn't know about this policy therefore they were cancelling my reservation.
One of the signs of really bad management is when they don't stand behind their employees or have documented policies. Feel sorry for this manager as she is working people who lack any integrity.
I would stay away from this campground as my experience is a sign to believe they aren't going to deal honestly with campers.

You'll have a much better experience at Shenandoah River State Park for a fraction of the price.

we spent a week at the Yogi park in Luray last July. Awesome place. Wonderful staff. Right between town and Skyline Drive so the view was great.

We love this place:

Shenandoah Valley Campground Staunton/Verona I-81 Exit 227 - Verona, VA 24482 - 540-248-CAMP - 800-310-2580

They have bunny rabbits everywhere hopping around. Dogs are welcome, so are kids. Lots of family events going on. A big clean pool. Indoor hot tubs, too. Wifi.
We loved it there. Plan to go back this summer a few times.

I called there in January to make reservations for July 4th and already booked. Really wanted to go there. I'll have to try again some other time.

Their holiday weekends and special events book up quickly.
They do have a facebook page, and they will let folks know if they get cancellations.

I've seen that, but can't wait for that. We decided to go to Pigeon Forge instead. Staying at Ripplin Waters RV Park just several miles away.

I belive most KOAs are three night minimums on holiday weekends. We ran into that issue when traveling to yellowstone a couple of years ago. We were on our way home over the 4th of july and we only needed single night sites, we were out of luck there. And the few state parks I looked at had two night minimums for all the summer weekends. Makes it difficult when you are not there for the festivities being offered at the campground and are on a schedule to get home.
We have been to the Jellystone at Luray. It is good, we liked it but it was packed. Kids really liked it. They may also have three night minimums on holiday, other jellystones do.

a 2 or 3 night minimum on holiday weekends is pretty much the standard. Nobody should be surprised to find this out. It's a big weekend for the campgrounds, they put out money for festivities, they need to keep their sites full.
