We stayed at Twin Shores this weekend for 2 nights. It was our first, and last visit, to this campground. Although the grounds are beautifully maintained, there were a lot of surprising downfalls.
The people working at the registration were not very friendly or informative upon check in- took my money, handed me a map, and said no more than "this is your site, straight down the road".
The site was a 3-way 50 amp site ($57 a night!!!), apparently meant for travel trailers up to 30 ft. Our trailer is 30 feet long with a slide-out and this site was barely large enough for it. We had just enough space to park our truck and the area that was left for a bonfire was much too close to the trailer for comfort. Most of the sites that were good sized seemed to be occupied by seasonal campers. I guess everyone else just has to be crammed together as tight as possible without much privacy or space.
The roads that branch off the main road are lined with trees that crowd the road and hang over in spots that would be too tight for a trailer of any size to squeeze under, unless you didn't mind tear off the vents and other gear on the top. Some spots were so tight that our truck without the trailer almost could not clear.
The beach was beautiful. The playground was really nice for the kids. There seemed to be lots of areas for sports. We looked at the list of activities and everything seemed to have an additional cost. The showers are coin operated (50 cents gives you a decent shower). Any more than 2 adults on the site will cost you additional.
Check-out time is 11am....and that means you have to be completely off the grounds, not just your site. We have been to other campgrounds that will allow you to move your trailer off the site, but stay to enjoy the facilities for a while longer......NOT HERE! They were quite rude and told us to leave because they had 170 campers coming in today and not enough time or space to let us stay for 20 minutes to let the kids play at the playground.
All in all, we were disappointed by this campground and feel that when you pay $130 for a weekend stay, you should be treated with a little more respect.
