Great people. Facilities dated. Indoor pool has a condensation problem, constantly dripping on your head. Also very noisy with just a moderate number of people. Would love to see an outdoor pool.

This location offers camping spots for individuals as well as groups. It is an older facility but still serves its purpose. The owners need to put more into keeping up the location. While it is run down, it is also a local favorite with its...More
