The tent camping area was relatively empty. Sites are right next to each other, with no seclusion. Since it was midweek, we had 3 empty sites on each side. We were right on the river which is nice, and they river is named appropriately, definitely lazy. We had the electric hook up and running water ($132 2 nights), worth it.
There are 2 pools, which were crowded when we arrived Sunday, however the one is the back was empty at 11am in the morning Monday. Bathrooms were close, there is only one shower area, maybe 8 showers, which is centrally located. Bathrooms were clean, however of the 2 women's stalls one was broken and the other was clogged up. But for the most part, we were able to find a clean bathroom if we needed one.
There's a game room and a store, which has everything you would need for camping and more. Wood is $7 a bag and Ice maybe $3. The place is kid friendly, although we were a couple, we did enjoy ourselves. Some people had kayak and bikes, and every other person had a golf cart. The majority of the sites, which are on the other side, are rv/trailer friendly. It seems like people set up shop from the summer.
I wouldn't tent camp here on the weekend as a couple, maybe if I had kids.
If you see the attached photo, you can see the different sites marked off (remember tent camping). They are close and there is no barrier. Good times..
