Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA

Campground Rules


State regulations allow for the quiet enjoyment and consumption of alcohol at a camper's site only. Obviously intoxicated guests will be asked to return to their sites immediatly and may be required to vacate the premises.

Check-In and Check-Out

Check-in is 1pm for RV and tent sites and 3pm for lodgings. Early check-in may be available upon request and starts as early as 9am (fees apply). Check-out for all sites is 12pm. Late check-out enables you to stay until 6pm and may be available upon request for a fee.

Campers who choose to check out early will not receive a refund for the unused portion of their stay.


Damage made by campers to their site or the facilities is their responsibility, and there may be fees incurred. Please do not use outdoor carpets on your site as they may kill the underlying grass within hours. Refrain from smoking in any buildings on the property, and do not cut or trim any trees. Please inform the office as soon as possible about any defective equipment or damage you may find on the campground so that we may repair it in a timely fashion.


Dishes may be washed on the upper level next to the ladies room and in the laundry at the lower bathhouse. Please do not wash dishes in the bathrooms.

Firearms, Fireworks, & Weapons

The display or use of fireworks, firearms, or other weapons are not permitted. Campers who break this rule will be required to leave and no refund will be given.

Fires and Firewood

Due to the prevalence of wood-boring insects in the area, we ask that campers do not bring their own firewood to the park. Firewood can be purchased at the store. Our trees are precious to us and our future. Please do not cut or trim any tree; we may levy a fine of up to $100 for any damage to trees. For safety, only make fires inside the firerings, and do not attempt to burn items such as cans or plastic wrap.

Gray Water and Dumping

Virginia State Law prohibits the drainage of sink or shower water onto the ground. Use a sewer donut when at sewer sites. No draining of tanks into an uncovered, unsealed container. Use an RV dump hose at the dump station.

Laundry and Clotheslines

We ask that campers not hang clotheslines on their sites but rather use the dryers available in the bathhouses.

Lake and Wildlife

The lake is for fishing only, no boating or swimming. There is no fishing license required but we ask that any fish caught are used for your personal consumption only, or returned immediately to the pond. Please do not allow children or pets to antagonize any of our wildlife.


Pets must be kept on a leash anytime they are outside your camper, even if you are with them, and must not be left unattended. Please be considerate of your fellow campers and travel prepared for "accidents" while walking your dog. For your convenience, pet waste stations (stocked with bags) are located throughout the park. Pet litter must be cleaned up immediately. Please do not allow your pets into the bathhouses, pavilion, playground, store or pool areas. Non-aggressive dogs may be allowed to run free at our new Kamp K-9.

Picnic Tables

All sites come with a picnic table. Please do not remove them from their sites. No grills or hibachis on tables.


Hours are 10am to 8pm daily, Memorial Day through Labor Day. Please, no cut-offs in the pool. Children under 18 years of age are not to use the pool without adult supervision. Health department regulations require that children in diapers not be allowed in the pool.

Quiet Hours

Quiet hours are between 10pm and 8am daily. All children (18 and under) are to be on their parents' site during this time.


Please display your parking pass on your rearview mirror. For your security, all vehicles without a pass will be stopped.

Smoking and Tobacco

While Virginia has a long and proud history with tobacco, state regulations prohibit smoking within any of the buildings on the property, including but not limited to: the bathhouses, camp store, pavilion and lodgings. This also includes the pool area. There are ashtrays located outside shared facilities for your convenience. Please do not leave your cigarette butts on the ground, and make sure to extinguish all smoking materials completely.


The trash dumpster is located at the exit to the park. On-site trash pick-up is between 10am and 11am. Please do not put trash out at night since it will attract unwanted wildlife.


All vehicles must display a parking pass at all times while within the park. Please park only one vehicle per site; additional vehicles must park in the designated parking areas and may pay additional fees. Please do not park on the grass or on other sites. No washing of RV's or vehicles within park, as our water supply can become critical during peak demand. Please no: vehicle maintenance, driving over 10 MPH, creating dust, unlicensed drivers, motorbikes, or unnecessary driving within the park.

Visitors of Campers

"Visitors" are defined as any persons not registered with your party at check-in. All visitors are charged a $5.00 per person/per day fee. Please have all visitors register at the office upon arrival whether in your vehicle or theirs. Campers are responsible for their guests. No visitors will be admitted after 9pm, and visiting hours end at 10pm. Visitor parking is provided in separate areas, so please ask your visitors not to park on the grass or another site. Visitor parking is provided next to the office.
