We Reserved a Full hook-up 50 amp pull through for an overnight. Cost was $58. This park has a LOT of potential. Currently it is under construction, After being lead to 3 spots, we had to settle for NO sewer hook up. We were told they were full--that they were expecting an influx of many people tonight. AH, not quite. The have about 150 spots. There are a handful that appear to be full-time. It's mostly empty, one class C came in after us and we saw them go through the same drive from spot to spot dance. It's never OK to accept a full hook-up reservation and then not have it. Of course after they did not have a working 50 amp full hook up site for us they immediately told us that ALL sites were the same price. I'm fuming. They are using bait and switch. I don't like being treated this way. I will NEVER Stay here again. It is a slimy thing to do. Be honest with folks as to what the situation is and don't charge top dollar for such shoddy offerings.

Had a great week, relaxing with friends we met at he campground. Child friendly. Area for the children to play and enjoy themselves. The lake was the high point for us. We enjoyed fishing off the pier, and the sunsets were terrific to watch. The pool was well used by everyone, but I think some parents used it as a baby sitter. Little supervision. Our overall stay was great. We will absolutely be back.

Such a disappointment. The pool was filthy, green. The bathhouses were dirty and no hot water. Dead bugs in cobwebs. Many permanent campers with cluttered sites. Would not go back.

Will never return. Campground is a trailer park with partial hookups for weekenders or vacationers. The permanent campers have priority over everything, their lots are filthy, rundown golf carts, grills litter their lots and they are on the larger lots. Even have added indoor porches and screened in porches and decks onto their campers. Bones from cookouts are all over the roads, where you can see the roads. They are not too defined other than in the permanent sites. Plus they are so uneven, I felt like everything stowed in the camper was going to be on the floor. Same with the sites. Uneven and tricky with the trees, I don't know how some perm campers were able to set up. Cinder blocks required to level up several of the campers and in many places under the campers. Parking, where ever you want pretty much, I saw campers parking their boats, jet skis. vehicles on empty lots so nothing is defined. The pool, forget it. Green water and sandy bottom and for the several days we were there it only opened on the weekend, the weekdays it was being "treated" shocked to get rid of the algae, not cleaned just shocked. The beach area had fish bones/skeletons on it. Felt unsanitary, would not even do the laundry for return trip. Based on camp sites we did not go into the bath house or laundry. Stray cats running around and not all dogs were on leashes or if they were they were not supervised or could reach the road or other lots. Extremely disappointed.
