We camped here for six nights with a national rally group. It was our first visit. We liked the shower/toilet combination since it also had a lavatory with it. The temperature of the water from the shower was bearable for the most part. The showers are free but push button. The lavatory on the other hand had a temperature control lever on the faucet. Free Wi-Fi is available at the complex and worked well. During the time we visited, the weather was very stormy. The lack of trees contributed to the high winds during the storms and the high humidity and temperature when the sun was out. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience. We would not return however, only because the complex is off the "beaten path".

We were here 4 nights with a group. There are 2 shower houses/rest rooms. One is older and requires the user to hold the handle to get water and the temperature cannot be changed. The second one is newer, is air conditioned and has faucets which can adjust the temperature. Showers in both are somewhat cramped for dressing. We got a downpour while we were gone and when we returned we had a "lake front site". I will say the management was helpful in delivering a couple of boards for us to use to get to our door. Because the group was a bunch of small travel trailers, we were placed on pull through sites back to back. That required a fair amount of work to make our electric and water hook ups, since each site had only a 50, 30, and 20 amp plug for a possible 4 trailers. Water hookups were equally scarce. While we did not mind the traffic noise, the campground does front directly on I-55. We would probably not stay here again unless it was with another group.

Only stayed 1 night. It is a beautiful setting and quiet. Park owner was extremely friendly and helpful even though we arrived after office hours. They were looking for us since I had called ahead and let them know we'd be late. Site was level, shaded and near to restrooms and showers which were the cleanest we've ever seen. We would stay here again when in the area.

Clean, beautiful setting for camping. Sites vary in shade from almost full day to morning or evening shade. Most pads require some side to side leveling. A picnic table and fire ring are at every site. Although we did not have a pull through site we did observe some rigs using them. At least one of them had the electrical box at the end of the site but on the wrong side. You may need an extension cord to connect. The campground is actually an island. The channels around it allow all types of watercraft from small one person kayaks to much larger pontoon or houseboats. The beach is small but easily accessible by walking or driving. We camped in a small trailer on site 157 right next to the restroom/shower house. There are both handicap toilets as well as showers. All facilities were clean and in good repair. The showers are large individual areas with a lavatory, bench and hooks for clothing. Each opens directly to the outside and have a sturdy door and lock. They are considered unisex on a first come first serve basis. On the end outside wall of the building is a large counter top on each side of a deep sink; a very nice feature for washing dishes. The handicap showers have a faucet which permits control of the water temperature. The regular showers are push button type that stay on for 30 seconds or so but have no temperature control. The store is small but seems to have most of the basics. They also have a few snacks and various ice cream treats. This is one of the best state campgrounds we've seen. We will definitely camp here again.

Sites are large and many are well shaded with mature trees. Pets are allowed on two of the three loops. If you don't have levelers take plenty of blocks since many sites, although paved, follow the contour of the ground. Our single axle trailer required about 1 1/2" to 2" under the one tire. The shade trees do not permit a good growth of sod. Straw was scattered over the dirt. Showers were clean, had hooks and a small bench in the private dressing area. The store was adequately stocked with basic canned goods and all types of snacks. The only things we did not find were milk and the wax cupcake like fire starters. This was a destination park for us. We stayed 3 nights on site 31 and would go again.

We camped here last year; this year we had site 157. The site is not level but is not bad. We had no trouble leveling front to back. The showers and rest rooms have had upgrades since last year's visit. The most obvious was new floors and shower stalls. They were also painted. The only problem with the new floor is that the toilets which are mounted on the wall are now at least an inch or two lower than before. My wife had knee replacement recently and found it somewhat difficult to get up and down because there are no grab bars to use for assistance. The camp store was having a sale both Saturday and Sunday. When we went there were a lot of buyers. We will return to this campground.
Date of Stay: August, 2008
There are new owners starting August 1. Check in was pretty smooth although there were a few minor glitches. Staff was friendly. Campground is very large. It has a number of permanent sites but they seemed to be well maintained. Most sites are grass. The restrooms and showers were clean but had no private dressing area. Some did not have seats or shelves on which to keep clean clothes. None had hooks or hangers of any kind to hang towels or clothing. Interior roads are asphalt and gravel but there were a number of pot holes in each.

Small but beautiful campground. Very friendly staff. Restrooms and showers are the best of any we've seen. Gravel interior roads, free firewood.

This campground is located in a rural setting in the Welsh Hills. There are a lot of seasonal sites, but we did not feel out of place. The showers were clean and worked well. There are actually two shower areas; one much more modern than the other. Staff was very helpful for any questions we had. Most of the sites are grass, and our site #15 was not very level. Otherwise it was an excellent site. There are a lot of things to do in the area. We stayed 4 nights.

We stayed in site 154 over Memorial Day in a small travel trailer. Our site was level enough but some we saw would have required a lot of blocks under the wheels to get the rig level. A lot of the sites have trees or shrubs as a buffer between them which is nice. Most have some shade during the day. Our site had the picnic table and fire ring down a steep incline. While it did not rain at all during our stay, it had rained a few days prior and the area was quite soggy albeit usable. Being downhill it was difficult to get to safely for anyone who might have trouble walking. The showers were very nice and clean with individual temperature control. Also, there are comfort stations located independently throughout the campground. The one near us was clean and odor free with flush toilets. Not sure if they have hot water available because even after letting it run a while it never seemed to get even warm. There is a free beach which was very nice but required driving to it. The bath houses were not clean but the season had not really started. Campers may swim at the lodge for a $5.00 daily fee. This also requires driving to it. There are 2 pools - indoor and outdoor. Despite being Memorial Day weekend neither of them were overly crowded. We appreciated a 10 am service in the outdoor shelter house on Sunday. They even had juice and donuts. The camp store has most everything but some things are limited quantity. Check in was very quick. If you have a large rig make sure to ask which direction you need to go to be able to back into your site. They sent us the wrong way but our rig is small enough that we could still manage. They do recycle and have a nice dump station near the entrance. There are bicycles of various types for rent as well as mini golf. One word of caution if you have the small scooters they may be used only if running on foot power. If they are motorized they are not legal unless licensed. We will stay here again.

Beautiful campground within an urban area. Majority of sites are well shaded with large pine trees. Staff extremely friendly. Road within campground is paved; most campsites are gravel. Most spaces between sites allow for slideouts or screen rooms/awnings. Although many sites are adequate for big rigs, because most are straight rather than angled, backing into them could be a challenge. There is one restroom-shower building. Men's shower does not provide a shelf for soap, shampoo, etc. Temperature of water is automatically controlled and can vary in temperature. Store has ice and firewood and a few other items such as insect repellant. A park pass is needed to enter but is only $5.00 for a year. Off site stores and restaurants are within 3-5 miles or less depending upon one's needs. There is a major construction project going on adjacent to the existing campground, but it was not noisy in the evenings or overnight. We were told it will be an addition to the campground providing sites and better access for big rigs. It is scheduled for completion in May, 2009. With a playground and other activities available, the campground is very much family oriented. We stayed on site 65 for 3 nights in a small non tent popup. We would definitely use this campground again if in the area.

Good paved bike trail about 5 miles total. Site was paved and level. Access to Bay and also a small man made lake is available for swimming. Garbage disposal is at entrance to campgrounds. Friendly and helpful staff. Some sites are shaded but the trees are mostly small because of ash borer problems. Showers were clean. Camp was quiet with friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice park. Our site was sod and level. Many permanent rigs. Owner said only about 80 sites are used for transients. Also store boats and RV's in one area. Speed limit within park was posted at 5mph and road had many pot holes that kept anyone from driving faster. Quiet, well landscaped. Showers and restrooms were immaculate. Friendly staff. We were camped, at our request, right next to a dump station. It was fine until an employee came to empty the large collection vat from all of the permanent RV's, then we wished we were a little farther away.

Site 128. Nice and shady. Quiet at night. Grandchildren, ages 17 to 5 all had things they could do. Camp store adequately supplied and staff very courteous and knowledgeable and helpful. Camp host very friendly and spent the evening with us on our last night when the park was virtually empty after Memorial Day. Showers did not seem to have adequate temperature control for each shower. Laundry facility OK.
