Huge campground with lots of great sites and some not so great sites. The sites toward the front of the campground are small and you feel like your sitting on top of your neighbor. The campground is located next to a toll road so you will get lots of highway noise. Lots and lots of stuff for kids to do. Three outdoor pools, one indoor pool, a kids splash park and water slides. There is a fee to play on the water slides. They have lots of planned activities. Most of those cost a small fee too. Several playgrounds are located throughout the campground and a new swinging bridge to the island. There is a small catch and release pond which was over crowded with tents, so there was really no place to fish without invading someone else's campsite. There were other places to fish on Barton Lake from the docks. The restrooms/showers were immaculate and very nice. The Ranger Station souvenir items were a bit over priced as most usually are. The game room didn't have much for the younger children but you could rent bikes from them and pay to play golf. They do have golf cart rentals and is recommended if can't walk or ride a bike any distance since the recreation room is located toward the back of the campground. For those who don't have a tent or camper they have some really nice cabins they rent out. I personally felt it was a bit expensive to stay here especially if your just looking for a weekend family fun camping trip. Overall it is a kid friendly place.
