One Of The Best
New cable and Wi-Fi are the best we’ve seen at any campground on our trip! Right near the highway so there is road noise but the great campsites, many trees, and great technology offset that.

Great Discovery
We were very pleased with the warm, friendly and helpful staff. The scenery was nice. It was clean and well maintained. We will stay there again.

Tent Camper
I came in after office hours. Picked a tent sight available according to their packages and set up. I had no power the first night due to no 30amp adapter. I had requested 3 nights. The next day I was at the sight till about 2 pm and left till 6. When I returned they told me I had to move. That sight was booked for the weekend. So, I moved everything. They also only registered me for 2 nights. Not the 3 I had requested. After moving everything, nobody ever showed up for the original site. REALLY! At least they didn't charge me for the 3rd night since I had to move. Other complaint was the restroom was 190°. Well, it felt like that anyway. The vent was not on and didn't stay on if it was turned on. I needed a shower from taking a shower. Also, people did not follow the quiet time rules. Loud all the way till midnight and after. Oh, and the boxelder bugs are rediculous! They need an exterminator. Otherwise, The park was clean and staff nice.

Not As Expected
Dead bird in the road going to the playground, pit bull running around off leash and came into my camp area around my 3 year old. Even off season the pool looked horrible with green water in it. WiFi is HORRENDOUSLY SLOW or I should say nonexistent even with full signal it did not function. Difficult to get rv level on the gravel pads, very uneven. Basketball was flat had to use my pump to air it up, volleyball was used for a dog toy. Spiders everywhere and mold on playground equipment. Beer bottle next to playground and dog droppings around camp site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A few abandoned trailers were on the far side of the park as you could tell they had been mowed around a lot. Playground is the only reason for return. One lane bridge to enter that had drop offs on both sides.

Good For Overnight
For an overnight stay this is a nice campground. Many pull through, full hookup sites. Clean restrooms and showers. There were several older RVs parked that looked like they had been there awhile. They have a terrible cable hookup system. I didn't bother with it the two times I've stayed here. It's convenient to shopping and restaurants.
