We planned a family camping trip to Camp Merryelande, and we never unpacked our gear. We drove the facility when we got there, and left in disgust.
A few of the highlights from our brief tour...
...the port o potty for the entire camp ground on the edge of our campsite.
...the garden hose run from the porta potty...traced back the pump IN OUR camp site.
...garbage every where. There were piles of garbage along the road and the entire loop in the camp ground. Next to our site was a pile of wood cover in rusty nails.
...the rental bikes covered in rust...no tires.
...the dumpster that had more garbage near it, then in it.
This place was like National Lampoon's Beach vacation. The conditions were beyond liveable. I am surprised the health department has not shut this place down.
The only way to describe this place is...a PIT. I've seen impoverished border downs in Mexico that were better cared for then this place.
