I've been camping for almost 30 years and have seen my fair of awesome campgrounds and despicable campgrounds and this has one characteristic that makes it deplorable. But first an honest review
The good: since Sun RV has taken over they have paved the main road, installed a playground area and cleaned up the pool area. The campstore and office were still not completed as of July 4th which, but from the outside they look great!
The bad: The office staff are not friendly and downright rude, not just to me but to many of the guests.
Th downright ugly: Upon checkin, they promised that the bathrooms were kept immaculate! I'll be honest and say that was a boldface lie!! Towards the end of the trip my husband and I refused to use the bathrooms given their deplorable state and took cold showers from the hose at our campsite. It's not just that they are rundown, but the cleaning schedule was non-existent. They cleaned them 1x a day on the busy 4th of July week. They need to spend some of that money on upgrades to the bathrooms!! Get rid of the combo toilet/shower room as it makes it difficult for people who might just need to pee but can't , because there are 4 people in line waiting to shower.
Despite all the great upgrades they have done, it is all ruined by the conditions of the bathrooms...it's the whole putting lipstick on a pig saying. I'm not trying to be cruel, but just honest. Everyone that camps on a regular basis knows that a good bathroom cleaning schedule is paramount to everything else!! Fix this and you might bring back some visitors and make believers out of us.
