My husband and I and our three-year-old daughter spent three nights and four days at the campground. We are big campers and opted for a tent site instead of one of the rental units. The tent site was large, shaded and private, so we were happy there. TENT CAMPERS: Be prepared to hear the rock quarry early in the morning on weekdays! It is close by and was a pretty rude awakening each morning!
The grounds are beautiful, and the pool area is perfect for small children. The playground rivals some of the best I've seen. The camp store, café, game room and mini golf were all above average for a campground. The grounds and facilities that we used were all clean.
As far as cons, I'll agree with some of the negative reviews that the employees could stand to learn a little customer service. There seemed to be a lot of odd rules (like children couldn't be in the deep end of the pool with life jackets or water wings on!!!!!), and the employees were quick to share those rules without being polite. The golf cart fees are outrageous, but everything else seemed to be pretty reasonably price IMO. The lake was in very rough shape when we were there, so we avoided that area. I know they are in the process of cleaning out the algae, but it was a disappointment. The biggest con: Both weeks before we arrived and when we arrived we asked if any rental units were available (we worried that 4 nights in a tent could be too much), and we were told "No." YET, we saw several empty units during our stay. We opted to leave a night early and get a hotel, but the day at the pool was worth the $.
All in all, we will consider another visit.
