Over priced, hidden costs, and bathroom facilities are rarely in usable conditions! Staff/security is not friendly at all! Highway noise all day and night from nearby four lane highway! Will not be returning!

Water service stopped and ran dry and no clean bathrooms were provided! Management is worthless and rude! Bathrooms were filthy and cleaning crews were just sitting around in golf carts doing nothing! Park needs updated and for the prices they charge it is ridiculous they haven't!!!!! Stay away from this park!!!!!

We stayed over July 4th weekend and enjoy it. We rented a cottage (2 adults and 3 children). The kids loved the bunk beds and swimming pool. However, it was too pricey...over $700 for 3 nights - too much. Prices did not match the website prices!! Investigate before booking!!

This was the worst experience I have had in the 5 years ive stayed here for the 4th of July holiday. First of all the bathrooms are disgusting. There was no water, poop, urine, blood, and everything else you could think of there. Second of all we got our golf cart confiscated without being carded or asked for our ID's so they had no idea what age I was. Third of all my aunt and uncle got kicked out for saying their bathrooms arent clean. Which they arent. There is hair all over the showers and only 2 lights out of the 5 work. The one bathroom stall hasnt worked the whole time I was here. The grass needs to be mowed and weeds are everywhere not even trimmed. The volleyball court was nice and the space we had was grand otherwise it was horrible and we are never coming again.
xoxo thanks for a bad trip

We just returned from a two night stay at this campground and will never return. This "resort" is overpriced with hidden costs. They advertise their activity pool but do not disclose that there is a pricey cost to ride the water slide. The campground is located right off of a very busy interstate, making the atmosphere noisy throughout the day and night. Fortunately we did not have to use the public bathrooms, as the showers appeared dark and dirty. The general store has very little. They advertise a snack bar but we made the mistake of buying breakfast sandwiches there one morning that ended up in the trash. They advertise a mini golf however it also appears run down and was unappealing to our two young children. The only positive was the pool, which was clean and fun for our family. I have never written a review about any other vacation experience but feel the need to inform others about our experience. Please do your research before booking a campsite here.

We stayed here on memorial weekend and rented a cottage. We were located up front by the front pool area and close to the snack bar and office. The campground is very large, we had to drive up to the other pool area where they had the slide. It was very nice that weekend and we enjoyed walking around and going to the pools and also snackbar. Our son loved getting Hershey ice cream cones everyday. Our cottage was nice and clean. We enjoyed making a fire in fire pit and roasting marshmallows and using the grill to make chicken kebobs for supper one night. We are locals and this was a 3-night "staycation" for us, it was fun because we had never been there. You do hear some road noise from route 15, but other than that it was pretty quiet.

We just got back from our fathers day weekend, we found that the campground was extremely nice we loved the privacy for each campsite. We did end up bringing our golf cart which is insured and was very upset about the hidden cost of a pass $25 that you must have in order to ride around on it, I guess it's because they offer rentals and if you don't rent one from them they find a different way to get a few bucks. The pools were nice as well as both of my boys had a wonderful time there but another hidden cost was the waterslide, my oldest son was so excited about the slide but he ran up to go down the slide (48" or taller) and was told he could go down one time for free and then had to purchase a $10 wristband for the day, I mean come on that's crazy it's just a slide and the water for pete's sake is pool water ! ! To be honest the reason we chose this campground for the weekend was because of the pool and being able to ride the golf cart.....none of these charges were mentioned during our reservation time nor online. Other than that I can't really complain, other than some of the nuts who drove passed our campsite going 50mph or more especially when our children were playing outside. We will definitely go back but next time the kids will have to visit the other pool and we will still pay the $25 for the golf cart fee because the campground is huge but we will still complain about it ;) Anyway I suggest to go and see for yourself ! !
