“I agree with "Hensens Please hear my Plea"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

I agree completely with the review mentioned in the title (that review was written 12July).

Our stay there was 6 nights and was marred by the “crankiness” of the cafeteria staff. Especially the “Master at Arms” fellow at breakfast, hopefully he was not a manager . . . I felt like I was in Navy Boot camp again.

Also, if you need to think a bit about your space number to pay, the cashier does an “eye roll” and scowls, even when the line is empty.

In short, the bulk of the cafeteria staff needs some re-training or replacement. I think the Asian girls need to be promoted, given a pay raise and assigned as trainers how to deal with and respect elderly customers.

AND the internet is awful. Don't expect to communicate effectively for work. (Yes some people work on vacation.)

We enjoyed the visit to Fun Valley. If we had our grandkids with us they would have enjoyed it more. We had an end site and had had room to enjoy. Those in other sites were crowded with little room to set up between campers.The worst thing was the electricity. There is a restaurant on site; a store; and entertainment for all ages. I will come back when the replace and upgrade the electricity. My surge protector went off a few times.

I've been to Fun Valley a jillion times over the last 30 years. This was probably my last trip. Nearly every time we go, there are hateful people working in the serving line in the restaurant, and sometimes in the office. Last week, a lady working behind the lunch counter told me very grouchily "Hold your plate up there! You're going to dribble!!!" There was one lady and the teenagers that are nice in the restaurant, otherwise, the rest are rude. We even heard one bragging to the other about how she "told" some customer off who'd made a mess. The folks working the Snack Shack were nice however, and I felt like telling them that their sweet dispositions need to rub off on the grouchy people in the restaurant. Don't park your RV too long in the entrance or the old man will grouch at you there too, and watch out for more grouches in the grocery store. The place needs new paint, and sprucing up desperately. The concrete is peeling up in patches outside the restaurant, the bath houses need updating, and the Funatorium for the kids was only fun when I was a kid. What kid today wants to play foosball? It needs to be revamped and some money spent or they might as well lock the doors and turn out the lights. With all the campers in there, Mack's family needs to start putting back some of the money they're bringing in and make this place as wonderful as it could be. Rustic, yes, falling down -- uh, no. The golf course was falling apart until the boulders fell from the mountain and totally demolished the rest of the sorry thing. At least they replaced it with a decent course. One thing I'd bet money on -- 20 years from now, the new golf course will look run down just like the rest of the place. This was my family's treasured vacation spot. Somebody in the family please work this place. It hurts my heart to see it look so bad.

Room Tip: Go before July. It gets packed like sardines in a can.

I have only missed a handfull of years since the late 70's when I was a young kid. I have been taking my wife and kids every year. I have camped all over the place and have found nothing equal to Fun Valley. Sure the camp spots are extremely tight and you wil track ash and dirt in your trailer and your trailer will smell like a campfire for months to follow. But in my opinion there is no other place where you can camp and let your kids explore and play from sun up till sun down without worrying about thier saftey. I have always stayed in the 600's camp spots just because I always have and we get to meet the same people every year. The newer camp spots at the West end are larger if you need elbow room. The facility maintenance has gone down over the past several years but the atmosphere is still the same and can't be beat. We spend 3 weeks in Coloradro each summer and have tried several other campgrounds for a few night either coming or going to Fun Valley and have found nothing that compares. My family will be coming back for years I can't get my kids to go any other place

I have been taking my family here for many years... Never again! Since Mack passed away the family has not kept the place up and all the old crew that have helped run it are getting old and grouchy. In fairness, most of the workers are nice and helpful but those in the office are not.

Fun Valley is in a beautiful natural setting but has seen little in capital improvements for many years. The bath houses are horrible.
