I love the Luray KOA. Such a great location. We had another great trip here this year. Different camp hosts, but still awesome.
We arrived around 1:30 on Friday afternoon. We noticed that they didn't ask us about the pizza dinner like they have in the past, but since I'm gluten free, we had already planned on not eating pizza. We got all set up & took David (the dog) down to the dog park. Their dog park is fantastic! We met "Lily", the Great Dane. What a sight that was; David was so tiny next to her! They played so well together.
The Powells arrived while we were at the dog park. We greeted them as they set up (in the site next to us, yay!) and they were telling us that the pizza people apparently quit right around the 4th of July! They were banking on pizza for dinner, so they were scrambling to figure that out.
We realized at some point that we needed to go to WalMart for a couple of things, so we offered to take J with us if they needed a trip. They decided to order pizza instead. I made some very tasty mushroom steak burgers and sweet potato fries. We had a great campfire that night, complete with s'mores!
Saturday morning, we got up & took the dogs to the dog park. Score for the pups being tired! Our group went to Luray Caverns and did the whole tour. I piggybacked one of the Powell twins for most of the trip through the Caverns. Always fun! After the Caverns, we had lunch, did the ropes/high course thing, and then did the maze. That was a full day! We stopped by WalMart again on the way back to the campground. We forgot a couple of things the day before, so it was all good with us!

After the outing, we headed back to the trailer. Jon & David took a nap.

After nap time, we took David to meet Princess Grace. She's a camping Havanese. We met her (and her poppas) last year and she's the one who convinced Jon that the breed was a good size.
We did a combined dinner on Saturday night. I made pulled pork & the Powells did all sorts of fixins. We did a Chipotle burrito bowl type thing. Everything was great! The kids were so tired that they all missed dinner! Another campfire with great friends (and adult only s'mores!) was the perfect close to the evening.
Sunday was a sad day. Weekends are just too short! We took our time, packed up, and headed back to the lot to put the trailer away. It was supposed to be our last trip of the season, but the Powells talked us into one more trip this season. We'll be visiting another campground that we loved last year. YAY!
