You know, it really just depends what you want out of an RV park... If you are someone who just wants to park on a concrete pad and be crammed in between a ton of other RV's with no view of or sign of nature then this might be a great place for you. For my family though we would rather have a nice bit of space to ourselves with a view of something in some direction that isn't more RV's crammed onto a concrete lot. That said I get that they don't have a great location, they aren't on the lake they... Read More

You know, it really just depends what you want out of an RV park... If you are someone who just wants to park on a concrete pad and be crammed in between a ton of other RV's with no view of or sign of nature then this might be a great place for you. For my family though we would rather have a nice bit of space to ourselves with a view of something in some direction that isn't more RV's crammed onto a concrete lot. That said I get that they don't have a great location, they aren't on the lake they are nearby, you won't be able to see the lake either, but it's what they have. They take reasonably good care of the place too. The wifi isn't useable unfortunately in alot of spots it seems... I am not sure if that is because too many people are connected and it's not suited to the load, or because they are using too many wifi repeaters and it's causing packet loss... I don't know, but it doesn't work well. I would recommend planning to use your own or just go without. The staff are very kind and don't give you grief for showing up late which is nice. They also are responsive and answer the phone after hours. Again, If you don't mind the concrete life and don't need much space then this is not a bad pick, but if you are looking to connect with nature and like shade from trees then you might not be happy here, my wife sure wasn't... she said never again.

This was our first time ever to use our RV and camp in a travel trailer. met us as soon as we pulled into our spot & helped us hook everything up. He was so courteous & friendly & made us feel very welcome. We were in the best spot for our family across from the park & pool since we have 5 kids. They enjoyed all the amenities: pool, basketball courts, bikes, playground, etc. Saturday morning we all enjoyed the complimentary breakfast while the kids watched Sponge Bob on the clubhouse TV.

I saw that they also had complimentary DVD library which would be great for those rainy days. All the people we met staying at the park were so friendly & felt like such a great little community. We will be staying here again & again!

I stayed here for two back to back visits. I needed somewhere close by to camp by myself and then to take my Mum and Papa to. I enjoyed the time here by myself, so I just brought them back here. The people that run the park are very helpful and great to work with. I love the cleanness of the park... and the ease of pulling in and out...

The other people at the park were very pleasant and friendly. I am a cyclist and I enjoyed that this RV park was at the beginning of a golf cart trail that ran to the end of the island.... it is a 5.5 mile trail that is almost all concrete. I had to bike on the road for about 3/4 max. I have two sons that I will be bringing back here to enjoy the campground.

Excellent park and spotless facilities - including a doggy park. There are other parks in the area but they appear to be located on major roads and this park was tucked away from all the road noise and bother. Short drive to stores and restaurants and very close to a marina where you can fish or meet up with a fishing guide service. We had a wonderful stay here - AND - the staff is AWESOME!!

Stayed in a Class A Motorhome. Met members of a local club for our June Rally. Facility is wonderful. The full concrete sites/pads and club room are top notch. Pristine swimming pool is very inviting. A nice bark park also. Personnel are very friendly and willing to help. The club room was modern and updated with a full kitchen. Would definitely stay again.

Only situation, after mowing, please make sure when you move the dump hose, make sure they are at a slope and not on the ground in places causing dips in the hose. In addition, blow off cut grass so it is not tracked into rigs or vehicles. I know he is young, and will learn in time. Overall, a great stay.

Very nice park. Easy access and mostly level concrete pads. The road getting it could use a lot of work but that's not the parks issue. Nice pool and clubhouse, dvd/game checkout... 2 complaints which I brought to management attention after our 1st night: 1) when I went to dump waste tanks on pad C10 the ground sewer pipe was huge - nowhere near standard RV fitting and the campground did not/would not provide a reducer (easily bought at a hardware store and they admitted already knowing this issue)....

Nice pool and clubhouse, dvd/game checkout... 2 complaints which I brought to management attention after our 1st night: 1) when I went to dump waste tanks on pad C10 the ground sewer pipe was huge - nowhere near standard RV fitting and the campground did not/would not provide a reducer (easily bought at a hardware store and they admitted already knowing this issue). Every other site I looked at had a standard pipe. So it took 2 of us to dump tanks, 1 person holding the end down in the sewer and holding our nose. 2) WiFi is advertised, and it stinks. I was right near a repeater and could not keep a connection in a fiberglass trailer - not for netflix, not for a google search, not for a facebook chat... keeps dropping connection. Again mgmt said they would do something about it. These requests both were the 1st morning of our 3 night stay and nothing was improved during our stay. I did not ask for a $ credit as these were minor inconveniences and offset by the rest of the park quality, but for the price of a night and given what was advertised didn't work, a credit should have been offered if mgmt wasn't going to do anything about it.

The park is new and very clean. The pool was almost done. Trees were just planted so there was very little shade. The sights are long but not very level. The front wheels on the coach beside us were 4" off the ground. The sight was long which was nice except the electric and water was at the rear of the sight and the sewer was at the front. Had to use extensions for both. The staff was fantastic. The hostess was a lot of fun to talk to. We had a bad storm coming and the staff went to every... Read More

We had a bad storm coming and the staff went to every RV and gave warning and instructions if it hit us. Really awesome. We will definitely go back.

Excellent park, personnel are polite, friendly and go above and beyond what you expect at campgrounds, they meet all your needs and help out when emergencies occur.

This is a great park. Concrete roads and pads. Pads were level with a concrete patio and picnic tables at each. Nice laundry, showers, club house and store. Good wifi. We stayed there a week and found the park to be a great location for everything in the area. It is only about a 10 minute drive into Grove and located near several state parks on the lake. I have to highly recommend this park if you are going to be in the Afton/Grove area.
