We just returned home from a 5 day stay at this campground. We've stayed before out front in carousel circle, and this time "up the hill" and it was much more roomy up there. Shuttle service was great. Reading some of these reviews I'm surprised by peoples complaints about the train, it is CLEARLY stated in all the brochures I read, and the girl even pointed it out when I called to make a reservation. This should come as no surprise to anyone who takes a minute to read the campground info. My only complaint is the pool hours. I understand summer is "winding down". BUT, we stayed the last week of august. Before Labor Day, and the pool closed at 6 daily. We normally returned from the park about 5:30 or so and walking by the pool, it was quite crowded. So this can't be for lack of attendance at those hours. Yes, I read the hours beforehand, and yes I understand the staff is probably beginning to head back to college and so on. But it Would have been soo much nicer if we could have enjoyed the day at the park and followed it by a nice relaxing evening swim. This was our only let-down of the trip. Boo for closing the pool so early.
