We just spent 4 nights at the LGRV park. It reminded me of a resort my family used to go to when I was little. You had that hometown feel, you didn’t have to leave the park to have fun.
They had fun “summer” things to do, Bingo, shows, softball, volleyball, swimming, a different movie each night. Two actually, there were two different theaters. The juggler and the magician we saw during the week we were there were amazing!
The sites were a bit small and really close together. We were on site 89 which was the corner of a loop. People constantly cut through our site to get to the bike path. We also had 6 yappy dogs next to us, which was a little annoying.
I didn’t really like the way, when booking you are told they will not assign you a specific site. They will take your request, though and make every effort to meet it. They said since it was so early, we shouldn’t have a problem, but still wouldn’t give me a site.
However when they sent the confirmation e-mail, it says this….
“A reservation guarantees a site, not a specific site. Sites are assigned based on when your deposit is received. We continue to encourage campsite requests and early reservations.”
I don’t know why they couldn’t give me a site when they took my $100 deposit by credit card back in March for an August reservation. Every other campsite I have ever booked with has allowed me to pick exactly what site I want when I book it.
Also it’s advertised as a family place but yet they charge $8 per kid per night. That seems a lot. I think it’s silly to have prices based on only 2 guests….they should base it on a family of 4. KOA’s also charge per kid, but they only charge 3 or 4 dollars.
The entire park has free wifi which is amazing. Other places we have been to has either spotty wifi or you have to pay for it. The bike trails are really cool, a bit hilly for me, but great for the kids. The trail that takes you to the village is a nice ride. Pretty much downhill the whole way in, but obviously then you must come back up!
They have a trolly that runs through the park constantly and will also take you to the outlet stores. There is also a trolly that will take you to the village. We did that one and it was great.
The bathrooms were small but very clean. The shower house was also nice and clean. I liked that they were small rooms with actual doors on them, instead of shower curtains. Gave you some privacy.
The people in the office were really helpful. We went in one morning and asked for some ideas for something to do. We didn’t want to go to Great Escape. The woman (I think her name was Mary Lisa?) gave us a bunch of brochures and suggestions. We decided on a white water rafting trip. She asked us to come back and tell her how it was, but we didn’t see her again….sorry, it was really fun by the way!
The grounds were kept very clean, the pools were nice, the theaters, and café were all nice.
I think we would stay there again, it was a great location and very easy to get around to see other things.
