Wife and I been coming here 8yrs. Always a great experience, staff are pleasant and management are on the ball with any trouble. Facilities are nothing flash but perfectly adequate, but that's camping, a concept many negative reviewers here just don't seem to get. Oh and the coffee is surprisingly good, well done. Also great to see a slight improvement in the shop selection. $1 for a shower is fine, however they need some work - those drains are ridiculously dangerous when you're trying to shower your kids.
We camp just outside the powered sites, so considering we pay the same on a non-powered site it begs the question - any chance of extending the reach of power someday? Just a magic spot.
