This was an ok campground, nothing extra special and the fact that they call themselves a "resort" baffles me. Sites were not well cared for, some mowed, some not. Ours had huge piles of hayed grass all over and a grill that was completely tipped forward and unusable. It looked as if it had been that way for years. Our cheaply built picnic table wobbled crazily and the one bench was completely sagging as if ready to break. We were going to trade, but the others were even worse! Sites are crazy close together with no trees or bushes to separate. The arcade is in a dank concrete basement with only a couple things to play, not what I would call an arcade. We were excited to use the pool to cool off after a hot day of hiking, but were shocked when we put our foot into this hot tub without bubbles! It had to have been over 100 degrees on an 80 degree day. Yuck! Bathrooms and showers were clean and roomy. My big beef is the complete lack of supervision by the owners. Radios were blasting and I do mean blasting well past the 10:00 quiet hours. Huge groups of local people were meeting each other at the campground for party central well past midnight at numerous campsites. Campsites had 5-6 cars pulled up all over the place with people drinking, screaming, yelling, and swearing all night with no one to tell them to break up the party. Rules said no clothing lines, yet they were everywhere and no one said a thing. Obviously, the locals know that rules are meaningless here so do whatever they want and invite all their friends to use the place too for free!
I find it odd that this is called a camping resort and that they charge you a resort fee. This is a mediocre campground, not a resort.
