My wife and I camped here in our diesel pusher motor home for 5 nights during the first week of May. This is a fabulous campground. Large spacious camp sites with W-E-S located close for easy hook-ups. Several outdoor pools and an indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna, which is great for the colder weather. Nice snack bar & ice cream location with plenty of under-tent seating. Well stocked camp store located at the office, beautiful basketball court and playgrounds with plenty to do for kids.
The "Pros" are plentiful in this beautifully maintained campground. Too many to list, but take my word this is a truly nice camping location. The only "Con" that I feel is necessary to mention is: "the road situation around the campground." Other than the entry area being paved roads, the rest of the campground roads are gravel & dirt. The main roads that go through the campground are unfortunately more dirt than gravel. The side roads that give you direct access to the camp sites are less traveled and tend to have somewhat more gravel. Our campsite was located on the corner of one of the main roads and side road. The main road is busy with Rv's coming and going, plus trucks, cars, etc. Even a vehicle driving slowly would raise a dust storm that would blow every direction at the mercy of the wind. We had to keep our windows in the motorhome shut for this reason. Worse yet was being outside and walking on this road. The dust from passing vehicles would choke you and burn your eyes, not to mention covering your clothes with enough dust you had to brush yourself off. This was not a good experience to say the least. Travel on the side roads leading to your camp site was also dusty, but less vehicles on these roads made it more bearable. Our humble recommendation would be to pave at least the main roads cutting through the campground and also the perimeter roads as well. Paving the side roads would also be great, but I know paving is expensive and at least the main roads would be a tremendous improvement. Mothers pushing babies and walking with youngsters were literally being crop-dusted by passing vehicles. Many folks complained in conversations about this very problem, but this is normally as far as it goes. Many folks also said, "this is a resort style campground and they charge a resort price for camping here, they should at least improve these roads so we can stop eating & breathing road dust." I agree with this logic !!!!!
Overall this is a truly nice campground with the availability for both adults & kids to have fun and enjoy themselves. Upgrade improvements to the roads would eliminate the airborne dust problem and rectify this situation. Otherwise, a truly nice camping experience.
