Our campsite was awesome, but there were power lines running right through the campground. It turned out not being a big deal, but definitely was something we were not used to seeing at a campground.
Margarita enjoyed walking around the campground with her cousin James. We bought James his own little “Rita leash” that we attach along with the leash I am holding so that he can feel like he is walking her.
We enjoyed the relaxing weekend with family. It was nice not to have to get up early, or have any set plans for the weekend!
Overall, despite the first impression we had with the power lines running through the campground, we had a great time playing miniature golf, taking a hay ride, exploring around the campground, and just relaxing!
Brian captured one of my most favorite shots of Margarita and me sitting at the campfire on our campsite:

Those of you who have been following our adventures from the start, know that we started out tent camping, moved on to a travel trailer, and then a 5th Wheel. Even though we enjoyed all of our camping methods, once we adopted Margarita, we discovered that we needed to travel in a way where all of us could be a little bit more comfortable while on the road. We decided to trade our 5th Wheel in for a Class-A RV!
We decided to take a break from dock diving, and visit Annapolis since we had never been there. We decided to stay at the Washington DC/Capitol KOA.
This campground was well taken care of, the bath house was super-clean, AND they had a great doggie play area with agility equipment!
The campground staff could not have been nicer – and every employee that rode by on a golf cart stopped to say hello to the dogs, and give them a treat! The friendliness towards dogs here is unbelievable! The drive to Annapolis was about 15-20 minutes.
Looking at the AAA magazine one evening, an article caught my eye about a small town in Virginia ranked one of the top 20 small towns in the United States…Staunton, VA. After doing some research, and having never stayed at a KOA before, we decided to give Staunton/Walnut Hills KOA a try for our annual Easter camping trip. Not only was Staunton/Walnut Hills KOA in close proximity to the town of Staunton, it is also located between the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountain ranges on the site of a former walnut plantation…pretty awesome!
Our campsite was right on the lake, and was spacious and clean.
Around the campground…
We are the third camper in from the left.
The campground had a fenced-in dog run, so of course we broke out the “Chuck-It,” and let Cello run like the wind!
The sunsets we saw from our campsite were amazing!
We got to see and do some really incredible in and around Staunton, which you will see in upcoming posts!
