“Overpriced and not camper friendly”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

Rates are a bit outrageous, and the store and recreation room close at 8 pm!? So much for customer service.

The woman proprietor seems to be bothered by those of us shelling out waaaayy too much for a campsite.

My third time to stay at this campground and I really enjoy it. Have been here with my grandchildren who enjoyed the pool and playground. Also travel with dogs and it is very pet friendly. I find the owners to be very helpful and pleasant and the other campers were friendly. Enjoyed walking around the campgrounds with my dogs and when the grandchildren were with me they were able to go around by themselves and feel safe. I will certainly stay at this campground every chance I can!

Room Tip: Great place and close to many things to see and do

this was the worst campground i have ever stayed at it is family run and the husband is ok but his wife was awful they like to make up the rules as the day goes by so if you call them they will tell you what you want to hear but when you get there your not going to be excited you are going to want to turn around and go home STAY AWAY THE SHOWERS ARE VERY UNSAFE and you cant even take a water bottle into the pool area also there is only one bathroom/shower house in the whole camp

We can accommodate the largest motor home or trailer on the road.The store/office area is well stocked with groceries, RV supplies, gifts and snacks! The laundry is located right next to the store, is open 24 hrs/day and has a change machine for the campers convenience.
