This is our second stay at Granite Hill, and the second time we were diappointed. Overall, the camp GROUND is nice... but many of the camp SITES leave a lot to be desired. This first trip, 4 July 2010, we had one of the 'Post Sites'. This amounted to 4 to 6 electric hook ups on a post... literally. Luckily, we were close enough that our cord reached... not so lucky for some of our neighbors, but it forced neighors to get real close so their cords could reach, making it really cramp. The ground was sparse grass, but mostly dirt. Luckily it didn't rain!
The second trip was Memorial Day 2012. This time we stayed in the 'Main Camp Ground'. Sites were cramped and the roads are very uneven/briken gravel. They had an underground leak somewhere oir it is naturally a marsh area because the ground was continually muddy. Before we got there, it looked like they spread stone in an attempt to cover the mud, but only about 2 inches worth of stone. Our RV sunk, I sunk, the dog sunk... it was a mess. Additionally, poison ivy was everywhere! As I type, I am starting to notice bumps on my finger. The RV area was light stone and mud, the awning area was mudd and weeds... about 6 inches high. We found several ticks on the the kids and ourselves just from walking through the awning area. Not a pleasant experience.
Trip 3 will NOT be at Granite Hill.
