Wytheville KOA is your regular old KOA… clean, predictable clientele, and a friendly staff. Some poison ivy, so watch when you’re walking dogs or if the kids get into the underbrush.
The pull-throughs are a bit short (and not exactly contractor-level) but can easily accomodate 30 and above feet. Also, there are two clean, fenced-in pens: a small dog one and a large dog one, both of which are extremely large and make a nice touch for a couple of “no kids yuppies” like us. (Parents, these might be of some use for kids with attitudes after long drives.) For a workout, follow the marked hiking trail, which is wide, lengthy, well-marked, full of fauna, and hilly.
There’s a couple of gas stations at the exit, but they can be tricky for big rigs. Gas up before or after at another exit.
We remembered this as we drove by today: The management supplied a variety of dog toys for the two large dog pens. There was the predictable fire hydrant, but the other had a concrete tunnel, which, try as we might, we could not coax the brave dog through. There were frisbees and tennis balls, plus, apparently, a bouquet most delectable for the two fools. Adding toys is a nice touch and shows that the owners really consider their customers\’ needs and wants while they\’re away from home. The wife reminds me that the owners also supply thick blue dog poop bags, rather than the horrific pooper-scooper/rake implement that socially belittles any user.
