Wow, what a terrible park! Extremely deceptive advertising on website. We rented a cabin and it was awful. The grounds are horrible. I really can find nothing good to say about this campground. Very expensive store. Looks like part of the park has been abandoned...the water slide was closed and looked like it had been for years...could not see how it could be operational ever again without a huge overhaul. Lots of huge stuff/junk piles on the property..abandoned boats, machinery, etc. The "Marina" was scary. Many make-shift walkways...many abandoned boats...just terrible.

bass haven campground in defuniak springs is a hell hole. white trash trailer park with absolutely
nothing they advertise on their site. we stayed in the pull through and had several old nasty men walking around shirtless with their beer guts sticking out. the only person that was articulate
and educated enough to carry on a conversation was a gentlemen that owned his own cleaning business and had parked next to us and unloaded his truck. (I forget his name) a real nice guy that lived next to the pull through area. he actually told us that we could use his grill if we wanted to cook anything that day. walking around this abandoned site revealed plenty of safety concerns. dock was closed off ' traffic cones indicating trip hazards and vehicle hazards. what a disaster. avoid this bass haven (trash haven) campground. one more note..... the office where you check in was closed. the owners came later on and demanded money and told us not to use up much energy while attached to their precious outlet. we paid our few bucks for the night and got the hell out of their at the crack of dawn. horrible@@@@@@@@

This was the most miserable "Resort" i have ever stayed! after taxes we paid almost $500 for 2 nights in cabin 12. As soon as we got there my nephew picked up a clipped toenail and put it in his mouth, the dust on the furniture was so thick you could have grown plants on it. the "Jacuzzi" tub was a joke, the mminute we turned the water on the handle fell off, the shower has weak floors under it and a huge crack in it, my niece got locked in the bathroom because the knobs were not properly installed, we had to use a pocket knife to get her out, there is no cable, no dvd player and the "wifi" they advertise is impossible to pick up, the restaurant is closed so we had to find a town over 25 miles away to go to a grocery store to buy feed to cook, the water slide was closed, the pool reeked of too much chemicals, the "fishing pier" was out of order because the walkway going to it has washed away! there was a enormous amount of piled up junk right in the center of the "Resort" making me nervous for my own kids to play outside! the "resort" or lack thereof has made our family gathering one we will never forget, or repeat! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Room Tip: the only good room i can recommend is one at a different facility!

Do not waste your time or money. The pool was closed, the slide was closed, no cable and there is literally a trash dump right in the middle of it. This place is nothing like what is advertised on the website. The only reason I didn't give them the lowest rating is because they gave me my money back. I got the impression they are used to that. Save yourself a headache and find somewhere to stay on the Texas side.

We had a very nice time there. The food was great. Now granted one woman behind the front desk black hair she needs an attitude check but other than that it was awesome. I felt like I could be myself there. The hamburger have to rate a 20 the pool and waterslide was a bonus. I am very much going back every chance I get
