Overall Rating:

This park needs some work. The location is good, the views are excellent, but the park is crumbling. We were visiting friends close by and decided to make a night of it, making sure we didn't have to drive in the dark afterward. We made reservations online two days before our arrival and luckily there were two sites left. We chose one and made our reservation. When we arrived, the gate was open and the attendant missing, with a sign giving us the details: Ranger will return tomorrow at ten, all RV spots are full, and nothing else. We knew our site and rolled on in, pulling to the side of the road (but not off, you would sink) to drop our toad. After dropping the toad we surveyed our back in site: It was mostly paved but not anywhere close to level. We backed uphill and tested the levelers, extending the front wheels off the ground quite a bit. The site leveled off slightly as we pulled back further but it was still not level enough to keep the front wheels on the ground. We hooked up to decent water pressure, but the 30-amp power fluctuated down to 90 volts at one time or another, causing concern to me and no blow dryer for my wife. There is also a good sewer connection that we used to dump the next day. Make sure you bring a donut for the sewer. The site had a good covered picnic table and a charcoal grill but we used neither due to the wind and the cold. Looking over the rest of the park there is a lot of things that should be repaired. The dump station is closed, flower beds look to be full of weeds, and rotting wood on the bath house close to us. We did not inspect further. The views are splendid, and the sites spread out, so you don't really see your neighbors unless you go looking for them. Cocktail hour was in front of the large front windshield in the motor home and the sunset view over the lake was worth the trip. We camped at Lavonia COE in a Motorhome.

There is no WIFI at the park but a good WIFI booster will find a decent open guest access connection coming from a subdivision a half mile away.
