If you find yourself in northern VA make sure you swing by and spend some time at Candy Hill Campground.
When we were getting ready to leave I was calling around looking for places in that area to stay for the night. Camping World was full and recommended Candy Hill. At that time, we decided that we were going to stay at the Flying J truck stop up the road. We made really good time that day and got into the area earlier than expected. I made a phone call to Candy Hill and they had some spots available so we headed over!
What a welcoming bunch! I’m sad that we didn’t have more time to spend there! From the minute we walked in the door we felt like family! They were going to give us a back-in, but I chose to go with a pull-through spot, despite their offer to help us back her in! The spot was very nice and tucked right behind the store and right next to the bathrooms and laundry facilities. We also had a nice view of the pool! The campground had a TON of campers for the Holiday weekend, but it was very quiet and relaxed. They even had a local pizza place that delivered! That was perfect for us since we were not prepared and only had beer and wine! I bet you’re not surprised about that, huh?
Once we settled into our spot I checked in on Facebook and we ordered our food. We decided to head over to the store to pick up some stickers and paper goods. As we walked in the store they greeted us as Pookie and the Bear! The gentleman behind the counter said he knew it was me because when I checked in I was so excited about it that I gave him a high five! That’s me! We told them all about our story and how this was our first day on the road! Everyone was so friendly and happy!
Candy Hill Campground is definitely on our list to stay a little longer next time we are in the area! They have events all year long and beautiful facility! The people were helpful, friendly and awesome! When we went to check out in the morning we were saying that we were going to go to Camping World so she set us up with a Good Sam membership which gave us 10% off our stay and we got discounts at Camping World! They really go the extra mile to help you!!! Thanks again for a great stay Candy Hill!!! See you again soon!!!
PS….a big thank you to the camp host that helped us out of our spot in the morning. We were certain we were going to crush that little car and he just laughed as we squealed and made funny faces from our seats!! He could see that we had plenty of room….but we weren’t so sure of that!
