KOA North/Kings Dominion Review

KOA North/Kings Dominion Review

Fun fact about this campground… I worked next door for four years and and only stopped by a handful of times (shame on me!) but we finally had the chance to experience it as campers. It was fantastic. We highly recommend the KOA North/Kings Dominion (also known as Camp Wilderness) in Doswell if you’re visiting the adjacent amusement park or just passing through Virginia. This is also a unique KOA location because it is owned and operated by Kings Dominion, a Cedar Fair Amusement Park. It is meticulously run and you can tell the staff truly cares about the property.

A few of our favorite things about this KOA: 

    1. The location. If you’re a roller-coaster junkie or heading to the park with your family, it’s hands down the best place to stay near Kings Dominion. There is a FREE shuttle that runs between the campground and the park, saving you big bucks on parking.
    2. Cleanliness. Camp Wilderness has the most luxurious bathrooms we have seen so far at any campground. The newly renovated bath houses are cleaned and checked often. Big thumbs up to the staff for this!
    3. WiFi. If you work from the road like we do, you know how important a good internet connection is. Because KOA North/Kings Dominion is in such close proximity to the park, the WiFi here is very fast.. it’s actually been the BEST WiFi we’ve encountered at any RV park in our 2+ months on the road. 
    4. It’s very dog friendly. There is a small off-leash fenced area for your pup to get some of that energy out. If you’re visiting the amusement park, they will provide you with a voucher to re-enter the parking lot free of charge if you need to run back over and check on your furry friends or let them out for a walk.
    5. Variety of campsites. A few years ago, the campground invested a lot of money in some major upgrades, including adding level concrete pads to several of their sites. (One caveat is these sites tend to be pretty close to one another, so there isn’t a ton of privacy. We were in spot 179 which didn’t have any green space.) There are gravel and dirt sites that are more shaded and spread out if you want to be a little further from others and have some grass. Even if you aren’t an RV camper, they have 32 deluxe cabins that can sleep up to 10! They’re pretty cool. Check them out here.  
    6. Laundry. This is a big deal for me, because A. I love to do laundry. and B. You can use your credit card instead of counting coins! I haven’t seen this at any other campground yet, but I think it’s genius! You simply swipe your card, select your machine, load your clothes. And ta-da! It’s good to go.

KOA North/Kings Dominion also features a big swimming pool  with lifeguards on duty (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), a playground, cable tv, volleyball and a great camp store.

Overall, this is a fantastic campground whether you are looking for an RV park near Richmond, VA or visiting Kings Dominion. We definitely recommend a stay!

Best overnight stay ever!? 😍🦙

During our time in Bowling Green, Kentucky, we put our @harvesthosts membership to good use with a stay at Alive N' Fuzzy Alpaca Farm! 

We helped bring all the alpacas up to the barn for the evening and even got to take some on a walk. Just be careful... they spit! (ask Howard, he knows 🤣)

The farm is home to dozens of alpacas, gander geese, a retired mule, Peaches the dog, chickens and one llama! It was one of our favorite stays ever and very convenient to all the main attractions in Bowling Green! 🙌🥰🦙

We just hit 100,000 miles in the RV! 🎉🚐💨

Safe to say, we stopped to look around 😍 

Those 100,000 miles in our @winnebagorvs Navion = two driving trips to Alaska, all across Canada, mainland Mexico and back and forth across the lower 48 more times than we can count. It's been a good run 🥹❤️

There's so much to see & do in St. Augustine BUT

If you're short on time, these are our can't miss recommendations:

1. Stroll down Aviles Street, which just so happens to be the oldest street in the Nation! 

2. While you're on this historic side street, pop into @forgottentonic_sta for amazing craft cocktails and delicious food. The blackened chicken egg rolls are *chef's kiss* 👌

3. Take the @flaglercollege Historic Legacy Tour. It's $17 pp and lasts about an hour, but you get access to areas the general public can't go. You'll get to see the largest collection of Tiffany glass and 11 Tiffany chandeliers ✨

4. Step back in time at @castillonps where you can watch a cannon demonstration and learn from the amazing interpretative volunteers. The fort was constructed in the late 1600s 🤯

5. Visit @staugustinedistillery for a tasting & a tour. They have free options or different experiences you can book. It was so fun and we learned a lot about the distilling process!

6. If you're an RVer like us, try to snag a spot at @anastasiastatepark or just visit for the day! Easy beach access and beautiful campsites, what more do you need? 😍

Save this reel for your St. Augustine adventures!
