Wow, just wow. We were here four days (Aug 27-31 2016) and although the kids enjoyed it, my bank account certainly didn't. Full hookups are something we seldom get, and I'd never get again, not here at least. RV's are soooo crammed together it's shameful, zero privacy. Hopefully you get along well with those around you, as you'll literally be...

Its a lil expensive to do everything but kids would enjoy it. Also buy wood from somewhere else if u can its really expensive. For 6...

We came for the weekend with our 4 year old son and friends with small kids. There were many activities that the kids loved! The beach was the best, the weather was only borderline warm, but they played in the sand for hours and could wade into the water a long way before it got deep. Bathrooms and showers clean...

My 9 year old daughter, our dog and I spent 5 nights at Ol' MacDonald's Resort and had a fantastic time. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. About 15 years ago I used to go on day trips with a summer children's program I operated in a local community so it had been a while since I had been there...

This place has gotten so bad over the years. They continue to raise prices on everything but don't maintain anything. Some of the bathrooms and showers are disgusting. They charge a fortune for firewood and now don't allow you to bring any in. I am pretty fed up with this place!!

Lady at the check in office was very rude, we didn't end up staying because it was pouring rain, they don't give refunds due to weather which is understandable however her attitude was disgusting, I wouldn't go back and have let others know my experience at this campground.

We stayed with a group of family and friends in a group site for 3 nights. We each had power outlets that continously blew and one water tap to share (and we weren't overloading the 15 amp either). The tent structure in the group site had left over birthday streamers, ribbons and freezie packs all over the tables, on the...

Great place to take young kids, lots to do for them. It really needs a make-over as it hasn't been done in many years but still a very nice place to stay. We stayed in our travel trailer and the power kept going off because too many people were using AC on a 15 amps. So the power grid could...

So my family of 5 - 3 kids ages 11, 14 & 17 - and then my parents and my sister all went camping here. We were in the full service sites. None of this enjoyed this at all. My husband made reference that he felt like he was in a trailer park, because the full service sites have no...

We come here for a week every year. We are never disappointed. They are a family run campground and they always have lots to do, and if don't want to do anything, you can just sit back and relax. They have many things for the kids, there is several playgrounds, a swing ride (like the one at the fair but...
