Campground Review - North Fork Resort

We stayed at the North Fork Resort in Front Royal, Virginia while we explored the Shenandoah National Park. You need to belong to one of their clubs to stay more than one night, we belong to Passport America.

Staff - 8 - Twenty-four hour gated resort is where you meet most of the staff. They guards were all friendly and helped us with our questions.

Natural surroundings - 8 - Park sits on the Shenandoah River and has several ponds along with lots of trees. Right next to train tracks but we never heard any trains.

Roominess - 5 - Sites are under sized.

Facility Fun - 9 - Lots to do here in warmer months, most of it closed up during our stay. Playgrounds, horse shoes,  tennis court, and basketball court were open. Pool, mini-putt, game room and snack shop were closed.

Facility usefulness - 9 - Free and fast wifi, camp store has a few items, exchange library, laundry, propane for detached tanks, picnic tables at each site.

Bathrooms - 8 - Showers are hot and numerous. Bathrooms were clean.

Cleanliness - 8 - The place needed a little TLC for a resort, but is was clean.

Nearby attractions - 8 - Close to Shenandoah NP and several battle sites. Within striking distance to Washington DC.

Value - 8 - Paid $26 a night for a pull-through graveled site with full-hook-ups including cable. This was with Passport America.
Overall - 8 - OK but sites were pretty small for a resort.
