This is one of the finest campgrounds that I have ever stayed at. The grounds are clean and well kept, the staff is friendly and accommodating,and the bathrooms and showers are the cleanest I have ever experienced. I love the way they have terraced the grounds in such a way as to make every site as flat as possible.

I was not happy with the service, the campground manager was the most unhelpful, rude person I every had at a campground in the 15 years I've been Rving. The entire place was gravel and very dusty to the point you could not open the door/windows the water had no pressure ( that was the issue I needed management help for ) and the dumpsters were overflowing I had to take my trash home with me. On a good note the bathrooms were very nice and the permanent residents were nice

Thank you for taking time to review us. We are sorry you did not have a good stay. I am not sure who you had talked to with the water issue but we always check out complaints and do our best to resolve the issue. I do admit it was a dusty year but we have put millings down through the entire park to cut down on the dust and we have been told by numerous customer that is has helped. We do our best with the trash and if it is overflowing please know that if you come again put it on the side and it will be taken care of. Glad you enjoyed the bath house, it was a very long winter project to get them completed!
