About pyrlover

We camp frequently and enjoy trying new campgrounds, especially ones that are dog friendly. We camp as a way to avoid hotel rooms, not just to enjoy nature. We have made so many new friends and been to so many wonderful places. What a great life!

We stayed here for just a few nights because our trip got aborted. The grounds were nice enough, although there were people that appeared to be full time residents. Our site was grassy, large and had the basics. What I really like about this place was how lovely the staff was when we had a problem and how accommodating they were when we had to leave suddenly. This is pretty much a basic campground with a tiny store, a clean, average sized pool and grassy areas, BUT the price can't be beat for an area that is full of great shopping and conveniences and so close to Disney Parks (22 mins approx). We will become regulars for those reasons and the great value.

The lake has fish or something that will bite your legs and the worst of it all is the boredom! You could rip your hair out for an activity. Unless you are into watching your coffee pot perk, you had better bring lots of things for yourself to do. There is NOTHING within miles and miles to do. Pool is nice enough but other than that, its like a cometary. We were welcomed but we ran into people that had a 2 week reservation that were so bored they were leaving early and losing their money rather than staying and losing their minds!

This park had JUST become KOA when we got here. The showers went from pay to free and everything was very clean in the bathroom, maybe because things were newly replaced for KOA approval. The people at the office were friendly, but they gave us a big sheet of campground regulations and we never saw anyone again. Our site was on the top of a hill, a very long walk from the showers and the pool and there was really no place to park if you wanted to drive there instead of walk. There are 2 dog walk areas and they are not necessarily near where your campsite is located. They were accommodating when I asked to change my date of arrival and delay it 2 days but they told me they were totally full. When I arrived I saw that there were many, many empty sites so that wasn't really true. However, they did accommodate me and I was grateful. It was ok for adults, but it would have been painfully boring for children. The sites were close, wooded and there was no place for children to play where my site was.

If you have a dog (or a few) this is the most welcoming campground you could ever find! We extended our trip to stay here several more days. There is a communal fire in the evening where ever one sits around with their dog and talks and welcomes newbies and just generally enjoys the evening. It's clean and wonderful and a lovely place to camp. I would enjoy a shower that had more room and wasn't operated with a quarter, but that's a minor inconvenience compared to how much we like it here. Weekend activities are fun also. Feels like the best of family and home.

This campground USED to welcome us with our 3 dogs, but they changed policy and went to a 2 dog policy and we had to get a doggy sitter for our third dog. We used to love it there but they are no longer dog friendly in our book so we won't be returning.

Very lovely people, a 'homey' atmosphere. Clean, clean, clean place. Lake is pretty but it was too cold to swim the week we were there. Nestled in a mountain the sites are big and the place is very well taken care of. The owners really care that you are happy. There is a clubhouse of sorts where you can sit and read or relax. Place to do dishes in a gameroom. Free showers with lots of room. Bathrooms have soap and hot air drying. Very nice place and a place that is easy to recommend.

Only campground we ever went to, where they had no provision for our trash (told us to take it with us)! You could pay $4 a bag to have your trash taken. They also told us not to pick up our dog waste (we did anyway). Bathrooms dirty. If you stay one night you pay extra to dump. No chairs by the pool. No recreation facilities. Everything was for the convenience of the owners. We have NEVER felt so unwelcome. We were only one of 4 campers at the campground and we quickly found out why it was so empty. Large grassy sites, though. They do keep it mowed. Its a passion of the owner, he mows all day! That's all he does. I don't think they ever clean the bathrooms. Extra for A/C.
