Stayed here for an overnight, our first time. Was way off the interstate (didn't do my homework there). Once we got there, staff was good, nice and easy check in. Park is VERY large and has been there for a long time. Lots of construction going on right now. Many facilities for families that are staying longer. Great place to get OFF THE GRID: poor cell phone service, terrible wifi so communication is difficult. Hook-ups were ok, site where we stayed was adequate in size for our 27' Class C but...

Great place to get OFF THE GRID: poor cell phone service, terrible wifi so communication is difficult. Hook-ups were ok, site where we stayed was adequate in size for our 27' Class C but would be tight for anything larger. Sites are packed in pretty tight which works well for families traveling together in multiple vehicles. All in all, good park for families that want longer stays, not the best for overnight travelers.Didn't use any of the facilities so can't comment on them, just in and out !

$77.00 a night for a horrible experience. Stayed here over Labor Day weekend 2017. Had 2 sites. Sites were adequate but most sites took quite a bit of maneuvering for anything over 25 ft. Almost every activity you have to pay extra for. If you are looking for a nice place to get away from it all STAY AWAY from here. All the campers in our section (all visiting guests) were quiet and courteous. Quiet hours are from 11:00 pm to 7 am and everyone abided by those except the park itself. Saturday... Read More

Almost every activity you have to pay extra for. If you are looking for a nice place to get away from it all STAY AWAY from here. All the campers in our section (all visiting guests) were quiet and courteous. Quiet hours are from 11:00 pm to 7 am and everyone abided by those except the park itself. Saturday night they had a DJ that was suppose to perform from 7-10 pm. It was loud banging music and it didn't end at 10 he kept going until 11:30 and then we were all treated to the whooping and hollering by the people returning to there campsites. Finally quiet at midnight. With small children throughout the campground there were a lot of sleepless babies because of the loud noise. You would think it was an outdoor concert at Grant Park! Ridiculous. We tried to go swimming on Sunday but all 3 pools were so crowded you couldn't get in. Capacity says 60 but there was a lot more than that and no one to enforce the rules. The drunken adults took up the hot tubs staking out their territories with their coolers full of alcoholic drinks. So we decided to go to the beach. The ranger station backs right up to the beach. We were inundated with boom box music that was so loud you couldn't even carry on a conversation. No one from the staff came and asked them to turn it down. The rules state that you can't have music, tv etc that is so loud it can be heard in the site next to you at any time. HA! Walking 200 feet down the lakeshore by the rental cabins you could still hear it. Don't tell me those "rangers" couldn't hear it. We were willing to pay the outrageous site fees because we thought it would be like Yogi Bear in WI. Not even close. Way too many golf carts speeding around driven by kids-it is dangerous on the roads throughout the park. A very unpleasant weekend filled with noise. Not what you want while you are camping. Way too expensive for a rundown campground. Certainly NOT A RESORT experience.

We were just traveling through and wanted a nice place to stop for the night. We will not be coming back. Expensive for the ($65?) night. Good staff and checkin, but from there it lacked in my opinion. Very small pull through, had to unhook my toad, no wifi unless you wanted to pay from a private company, and no cable TV. Probably a good family stop. Looks fairly old. My sewer connection looks full, can see fluid near the top, going to CAUTIOUSLY empty my grey first.
