Stayed in a 43' class A DP. Not really a big rig friendly park. Narrow road getting to the park, no way two rigs could pass each other. Our site was in the open field up on the hil. Park is set on four levels with lots of elevation change in between. We generally ride bikes but way too steep for us so we rented a cart. First issue we had was leveling our coach. Ended up with the front wheels hanging 4" off the ground. But, shorter rigs would likely not have the same trouble. Next issue was power. The 50A breaker popped at least 10 times over the 4 days we were there. If we ran more than one a/c it popped. If we ran one a/c & the microwave, it popped. I called the front desk 9 separate times and not once did anyone answer. when I did get ahold of someone they said they would send a maintenance man out but he never came. Next issue was the golf cart I pre-paid for and was "promised" would be avaible after 12:00 on Saturday. When I showed up at 12:15 for it they said it had been turned in early and they had rented it to someone else. I asked to speak with a manager and they called a guy four separate times over the next 40 min's while I stood waiting for him but he never bothered to show up. He did get about 15' away from the building, looked over at us then turned and walk the other way... So, bottom line is the park gladly took my $400 for the weekend but couldn't bother to provide any customer service at all. There are other nicer parks in this area, don't waste your money here.
The first impression was nasty. we asked to be near the river we where a 37 ft mh with 14 ft trailer. Not a chance in hell would we fit near the river. so after the office staff complained that we came early for check in they gave us another spot up on the hill. ( we where early by 15 minutes and the site they where going to put us in they just came out of the lake.) Up on the hill is pretty with the mountain views. (that was the only nice thing) Laundry room and bathrooms where nasty and old. The kids went in the ponds and said they where filled with seaweed and the obstetrical course was ok as long as you didn't fall in the water and get trapped with what ever was in there. the mini golf was old and tethered from the distance we saw. The pool, splash pool and bounce thing where ok . If you have to go there ask for the upper hill area bigger sights and if you need a bath house you need to be upper area. The lower area had construction site quality porta potties or you had to walk to the club house up quite a few stairs if you have to go. We will not be back anytime soon.
