Description

The name Heavenly Acres Campground says it all. A family-friendly, resort quality campground in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Stanardsville, Virginia, we are centrally located near I-64, I-6 and I-95, off of Hwy 29. Our 80 acres of wooded campground provide fresh air and first class amenities that make the campground a favorite destination for many. A large swimming pool, horseback riding and a game room keep campers busy on-site and a convenient online reservations system helps you plan your vacation with ease.

Nature lovers can find paradise fishing in the mountain creeks that wind throughout the property, and the area trails make mountain biking and hiking a joy. The Shenandoah National Park lies in close proximity to the camp as well, with over 500 miles of trails, including over 100 miles of the famous Appalachian Trail. The Skyline Drive, a 105 mile section of road that runs the length of the national park, gives travelers the perfect opportunity to see the spectacular mountain vistas that are spread throughout the region.

For a true taste of American history, a visit to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello must be on the agenda. Designed, redesigned, built and rebuilt over the course of forty years, this masterpiece of architecture is open for tours throughout the year, with Michie Tavern, another historic landmark circa 1784, located on a mountainside near Monticello. Whether shopping in the quaint towns, exploring the historical sites or communing with nature, the Heavenly Acres Campground is the ideal spot for a mountain vacation to remember.

I made reservations to stay at Heavenly Acres Campground over the 2014 Easter weekend. I chose this place based on the website for the campground itself, as well as the reviews--I found only one review that spoke negatively of the campground. Well, let me tell you, that should have been the one review that I listened to. To begin with, I reserved a small cabin, as well as a premium cabin. I'll start with the small cabin: It was spacious, clean, and cute. I really had no problems with this place. The premium cabin: the first one we were assigned to had only a double bed and futon. It was also called a "deluxe cabin," not a premium cabin, like the website and the reservations site called it. The reservation I made said that the cabin had two rooms, two double beds, and a set of bunk beds. So we went and spoke with the owner of the place, Gary. So Gary first denies that they even have premium cabins, so I show him the confirmation of the reservation--you know, the thing that confirms what you paid for. Then, when he can't deny that that's what I reserved, he says he'll go check his books. Which he keeps in his house. Because the so called "camp store" is no bigger than a shoe box, it stands to reason he couldn't conduct his business in there. He comes back out and tells me that when we reserved the cabin, we said we only had four people staying there, so he put us in a cabin that sleeps less people. So.....he took my money, which was for a cabin with two rooms, two beds, and bunk beds......and downgraded it? I guess I was mistaken in thinking that I would get what I paid for. He suggested we put the babies we had with us (all under the age where you get charged for them, so do they even count as guests?) on the floor. Yes. Put your babies on the floor. Okay, Gary. Great plan. But allow me to continue. The site advertises a basketball hoop, volley ball, winding streams to fish from, a pond to fish from, hiking trails, visitor parking, and two play areas for children. The basketball hoop was broken, and the pad where you would play on it was slowly being overcome by grass, and crumbling. There was no volley ball as far as I could see. There was one narrow stream, hardly wide enough to use to fish for minnows. The pond was scummy and stank, full of algae. There was a tiny sign with a hiker on it, but it didn't appear to lead to a hiking trail. The visitor parking was a small dirt patch. The plays areas for the children were full of what looked like old, scavenged play sets. There was a swing frame, but no swings on it. Weird glider things that seriously looked like they would fall apart if you so much as sat foot on them. There was garbage all over the campground. Old boards, two garbage cans laying on their sides, bottles, old Halloween decorations. I kid you not, there was an old air compressor in the woods beside our "premium cabin." Why? Your guess is as good as mine. The game room had all sorts of arcade games--that didn't work. They were unplugged, so it was a game of chance trying to figure out which ones worked and which ones didn't. The camp store was running a sale though--on two old bottles of spices. The highlight of this trip though? The roaches. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention there were some nice Virginia cock roaches in the cabin? We told Gary we were leaving a whole day early, because out of all the lies this place told, the cock roaches were really the thing we couldn't handle. So Gary says, "oh well now that I know I can bomb for them." What. The. F*ck. Call the exterminator maybe??? So, he says he sure wishes there was something he could do for us, and we suggest he give us our money back just for the one night we weren't staying. He says "oh I can't do that. Besides, you basically got a free night since I upgraded the cabin for you." SERIOUSLY??? I PAID for a cabin that we never even saw!!!! He took my money, downgraded me, and then acted like he did some favor for me. And his defense for the poor shape his place was in? "I'm just coming off my winter season." Then don't take people's money if you can't give them what they paid for! After delivering the news that he can't help us, he walked away. Listen to me. Listen to that other guy. I don't know who wrote the other reviews. But listen, listen, listen to me: don't give that place your money. Pay more and stay in a place that isn't built from scavenged crap, and doesn't have bugs. STAY AWAY FROM HEAVENLY ACRES CAMPGROUND.

UVA Graduation weekend!
0 % of users found this review helpful
We came into town for UVAs graduation, meeting our daughter from CA. Hotels were booked solid. Selected this campground & cabin. Our first impression was with the owners. They were friendly & extremely helpful. The cabin was exceptionally clean & had everything indicated on the website. The campground was quiet, very neat, and easy to navigate. Normally when camping you don't iron, but we traveled in from out of town (NC & CA)& had to go to various graduation functions, requiring clothes other than jeans & t-shirts. The owners let us use their personal iron & ironing board & delivered it to our cabin. WOW! that is going way beyond expectations! ...but this is a small example of the friendly & helpful nature of these folks. I would highly recommend this campground for families & I would gladly return.

This is an excellent place to stay! Campsites are all shaded and very spacious, with fire rings, picnic tables, and either a cooking grate for the fire, or a grill at every campsite. The owners are so friendly and are always around and willing to help out with anything they can! Shower house may be a little out-dated, but it's CLEAN, as are the restrooms throughout the campground. If you are looking for resort camping, might as well go somewhere else. But if you are a TRUE camper who loves being outdoors, then this is DEFINITELY the place to go!!!!
