This is my go to campground locally. Grew up going to this campground as a.kid. the lighting in their parking lots needs improved or actual lights put in the lamps for various reasons. Hosts seem nice but the new ones have a different set of rules for the campers especially when it comes to where you can park a golfcart on your pad. They made me move one I rented and that caused an accident and I had it originally in the gravel to begin with. Need to improve fixtures in bathrooms as.well..some fall off in your hand. Water temp improvement and fans in summer and heater in colder weather would be a great asset as well. Their roads could also use patched especially in the Wooda section...makes ot rough taking the honey pot on its wheels on going to dump it. People reserve and dont show up and it knocks others out of camping. Have seen people moving equipment to the first come prior to renting the actual spot. Which is not fair to other guests. Hosts could be a little more customer friendly. Should be rules in place for noise and music on the golfcart and age restrictions for who drives them. Skunks are horrible in this campground and seem to multiply more each year!

Lots are fairly level and shaded. Backing a 30' travel trailer into space was challenging as there's not much space to maneuver. Bathrooms were so old and worn I didn't use. Noisy vehicles after midnight we're a nuisance. Seemed better suited for guys fishing.
