First vacation in years, went to this campground to tent camp for 4 nights. We left after 2. Upon entry, the girl at the desk had a nasty attitude. Our first site was nothing but sand. We asked for a shaded site, and found one in particular that seemed shaded. We asked to move, she said it is not a tent site, but no one else was coming in so we could have it. Moved there, set up the tent, no room for screen house, unable to use fire pit because it was so close to the tent we didn't want to burn it down. Unable to park on site without running over our tent, but all the tent sites were empty, so we used the one beside us to park our truck. First night there, all we heard was heavy traffic, noise from the employees at the strip mall just behind the fence at our campsite, at 6AM the trash truck came by for all the trash at the strip mall, the other side of the campground is a trailer park. Shower time in the AM, no hot water. We told mgmt, they attempted to fix it. 2nd shower next am- COLD shower again, went up to get coffee, was told they had no coffee, none in the store, so they were not making coffee for that day. We packed up and headed home. I am sure we'll not get a refund of our 2 nights not used, but that's ok. Sometimes it's better just to not be miserable.
The view from the tent sites is the rear of the strip mall, very dirty, vines growing on the buildings, the fence needs repair, the noise is horrible, The bath house was ok if you like cold showers. The coffee (1 day) was good, $1 for a very small cup, $1.50 for a larger cup. Firewood was 7 bucks a bundle, but if you're in a tent you cant use it without danger of burning down your tent. WILL NEVER GO BACK. HORRIBLE CONDITIONS FOR TENT CAMPERS.
