A group of 3 families traveled to Duncans for the first time this weekend. I read the reviews before we left and I did notice some rough reviews. As we pulled into the front gates we noticed that the campground was clean and had a nice cheerful sign at the front entrance. We checked in and my family was given a discount for me being in the fire service as well as the other families in our group for having a military career. We had been handed a nice glossy map and directions to our site. Our site had a clean fire ring and a level lot. We had plenty of room for slide outs and awnings. Yes the sites are deeper than wide and yes the water and electric is a slight stretch but we made do. Activities had been planned for the weekend by the Duncan family and we noticed that trash pickup was being done all day. The red family Duncan truck made its rounds every couple of hours making sure things look tidy. The bathrooms are older but I didn’t come to a 4 star hotel. The bathrooms were cleaned daily at 11am every day. I would venture to say that at least 5 different staff members drove or walked by our camp every day and said hello. Marc Duncan stopped by on Saturday evening and asked if we are happy about the stay so far. He was very approachable. Our children had plenty of room for bike riding and baseball playing. The nature trail could use a little grooming and the pool was just opened so it needed a little time to get its spring legs again. The life guard at the pool was like any life guard at most pools. Young but did advise the horseplay to be at a minimum. We read some previous online reviews in reference to the life guards. We did not notice the life guards on the phone and we do not expect the life guard to be a baby sitter either. Overall I enjoyed the weekend and will return. The price was cheap compared to a lot of places. You are also close to a lot of attractions.
