Four families went to this campground for a family weekend. One family planning to stay in a cabin. At the peak of the cabin there was a large hornet nest and three members of our group were stung, two children. No one checked to see if we were okay. There were mice in the cabin and it was not clean....

We were not impressed to say the least on our Memorial Day retreat.We were in a group of 4 families in the new area which was unimpressive. The only restrooms were a far walk away with only 3 toilets & 2 showers! The trains in the middle of the night blasting their horn 4 times every 30-45 minutes was extremely...

You cannot always believe websites, or reviews. The campground seems to be rather unkept to say the least. We arrived at the campground around 4;00 P.M. Office was closed with no one around.

We travel for a living and therefore are very experienced with campgrounds and RV parks. This is TOP notch to say the least. Onsite amenities are great, staff is beyond helpful, and park is beautiful. So much to do here for the kids from volleyball, basketball, fishing, campfires, a pool, laundry on site, all make this a must for anyone...

This place has everything. Sand volleyball, a pool, family oriented camping. Many weekends through out the summer are themed weekends, there are volleyball tournaments, bag tournaments, kids parades, fireworks. On Saturday mornings they have crafts for the kids. The camp hosts are great!

If you camp you must stay here! The current owner has completely remodeled the campground! Crafts for kids on Sat. mornings, Cabins to rent, swimming pool, and a large blow up slide! The owners and camp hosts are so GREAT! Once you come you will want to stay!
