This was my worst camping experience in over 50 years. We arrived on Sunday noon to learn that no one was really on duty and the office was closed. We had phoned for a reservation and were told it was not needed. We had plenty of open campsites to choose from since they are all in the open and you can see what is unoccupied. We attempted to hook up the TV but it wouldn't work. I went to the golf pro shop, which was open, and asked for help. The golf ranger/handiman was called and he arrived soon only to jump all over me since I had told the pro shop I was in site 136 when he said I was really in 135. (It was actually 136A and 135 was clear at the end of the row and 136 was also vacant.) He had a small TV that he attempted to use to check reception. He also told me that he had a lot of golf carts to look after and didn't have time to do this. Since he couldn't get any power from the box, he couldn't check the reception. The next morning, when we checked out, the manager/owner or whoever he was, reduced my wife to tears when he jumped all over her claiming I had "cussed out" the ranger. I did fuss for having no cable and the fact that they were closed tight on Sunday. The manager/owner told my wife that nothing was wrong with the TV and it was my rig that was wrong. She indicated we were hoping this would be a place where we could stay several months next year. He made some comment to the effect that we weren't the type of people he wanted there. My TV worked fine at the next campground. I'm uncertain how this park maintains its 10/10/10 and 55555 ratings. They obviously never visited with the manager/owner. We camped at Grand Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.
