Ft Tatham has really improved since the last time I was here. I got a pull through, because on my first stop I found backing into the site a real hassle. They have added room between the pond and sites and now there isn't a sight that would be hard to maneuver into. The pull through I had was not level and I wasn't able to get enough traction to pull the camper onto the pads, wound up jacking it up and putting pads under wheels, The WIFI is the best I've found at any campground. believe it is easily available at any sight. There is a little highway noise, but not enough to keep me from returning in the future. The restrooms and showers were well supplied and in good shape the pool was fun. I didn't see anyone fishing in the pond, but it still has the catch and release sign up.
We camped in a 27 ft. Fifth wheel with a slide out. This campground is park like, has creeks along two sides, convenient to the highway. There are a lot of seasonal residents. Run by a charming couple. But it is over 40 years old and the sites and roads are for smaller campers. Our assigned space was too narrow to get the slide out. However the managers found us a better one, though it was their day off and gave us the adjacent slot to park our vehicle. They are planning improvements over the winter, taking out trees and slanting spaces. Maybe making some wider.
This is an older campground with a lot of older permanent units, but all were clean and neat. Very friendly managers and residents with lots of activities. Small playground area for children. Spots were gravel and mostly level. Road getting into the campground was a bit steep and windy but doable with out 34' motorhome.
