We brought our 4 year old grand daughter for the weekend and it was just perfect for her. Even the adults enjoyed themselves. Very clean and staff was nice. We will be back

Place needs updating, but it's not that bad. Very quiet resort. Our room was not bad. Our kids had a blast.

It is more run down from when I was there last summer. Moldy smell in the locker rooms. Rust around the intake vents. Many areas needed painting.
