We were really looking forward to our stay after great recommendations from our extended family that had stayed here 2 years ago. We checked into Cabin #35, a 2-bedroom luxury cabin. It was dirty, but we didn't reaize how filthy it really was until later that evening. I did bring my usual lysol wipes and never mind doing some quick wipes before we settle in. Our cabin ( and I can't speak for the others) looked nothing like the 2-bedroom cabin on the website. There were no curtains or plaid bedspreads. In fact 5 of the window blinds were cracked and broken - not very welcoming. The mattress pads on the beds were full of crumbs. We brought our own sheets (thank goodness) and when making the beds, we found someone clothing under the mattress - so obviously whomever was to clean the cabin missed the bedding! The cabin has a beautiful wood laminate flooring, but it was so filthy dirty that everyones feet were black within the first hour of being there. The table with bench in the kitchen also looked nothing like the picture, and that too was dirty. Again, we don't mind wiping things down when we arrive...........it's a campground for goodness sake - but this place was just not clean and hardly worth $230. per night.
We love camping, and from what I could tell - those in RV's and tents probably fared better, just knowing they were using their own things, and if filthy it was from them and their family having a great time!
Pool was nice and we enjoyed our time there. Mini golf course could use some major work. Cindy's Pavillion was probably nice when you could find something happening there. We tired to attend the advertised "lunch with Cindy" and arrived 15 minutes into it only to find an empty pavillion and no staff in site. Golf Carts alittle expensive, but a favorite with our kids! We enjoyed riding around and seeing all of the neat RV's. The arcade/game room was unstaffed and most of the games were "out of order" and the same with the games in Cindy's Pavillion.
Returning to the cabin in the afternoon of our second day, we decided we just didn't want to spend another night - our choice, but certainly not a hard one to make based on the conditions of our cabin.
Maybe we just stayed at a wrong time of the year, but based on the emails that I continued to receive from them - they were not full. Maybe the cleaners were in a hurry?
Too many other choices for camping fun. We won't be returning.
