We started our travels again today and drove all the way through SC and NC, finally stopping in Wytheville VA. As we were searching for a campsite, we decided we would cash in some of the gazillion KOA points we had accumulated and stay at the Wytheville KOA. Because of the points, our total cost for the night was only $11. Not too bad considering a KOA would normally cost around $35-40.
Wytheville KOA is an older park that had shorter than normal pull through sites for RV’s. We just barely fit in ours with the RV and the SUV on the tow dolly. I spoke with the owner the next day and found them to be former Floridians. Nice folks and I have to say that their KOA was one of the nicer ones we had stayed at so far. They did have one sign out that gave me pause…watch out for the bears. I guess they have had a little bear problem in the past due to campers leaving food and trash outside. But, the owners are pretty stringent about the campsites being clean and that seems to negate the bear problem. But, just to be safe, I limited my time outside after dark.
Overall, it was a nice place to spend the night.
