Had an experience with the owners of this facility - their reception staff were courteous, helpful and due to a simple oversight - we were able to upgrade to a cabin, which unbeknownst to us, did not allow pets. Well into our 2nd day of our trip, putting our children to bed and 2 people on a golf cart paid a visit to our camp and berated, me while my husband was inside the cabin getting our 4 & 8 year old to bed. She was implying that I did not report our dog, which I was able to prove we did and make us feel so unwelcome with our pet that we ended up packing up at 10pm and heading home - completely ruined our first "family" camping experience. The owner even suggested that I tell her employee that she "was in big trouble" for letting our dog in this cabin. The owners never would call me to apologize for the mix-up and I had to go to the Attorney General for them to refund any our $$. Still to this day, the owner nor the wife have issued any sort of apology, written or otherwise. If you are taking your pet, be sure to check which cabins they are allowed to stay in. I would not recommend staying here, due to the unprofessional actions of the owners - Lorelle & John. - What may have been the perfect family get away turned into a true nightmare for our family!
