We camped here with friends for Labor Day Weekend. The park was very busy this weekend because of the holiday, but that really added to the fun. They had numerous activities for the children and it was also Christmas in September. Some of the campers really put up large displays and we had a lot of fun walking around the campground Saturday night looking at all of the lights. The staff was very friendly, the pool area was very nice including a splash park for the smaller kids. They have a nice, large playground for the kids that is kind of tucked away in the middle of the campground. We had a large pull through site. It was somewhat narrow but still provided a good amount of space between our neighbors. Our site was very long which was nice. They have a nice camp store with treats for the kids after swimming. Our site was also very level. Overall a very nice park: some areas need a little updating, but we will definitely be back.

This campground is located directly next door to Dutch Wonderland on a very busy, 4 lane road. The traffic on this road is extremely heavy and trying to get in and out was a pretty significant task. Once in the campground, the sites were relatively decent sized. There was no pool and a below average "playground" for the kids. The other campers were very nice. Although our electricity, and the electricity of the sites around us kept turning off. It would stay off for approximately 10-15 minutes and then come back on. This happened repeatedly during our stay. I'm not sure if it was caused by the excessive heat during our stay, or some other problem, but was inconvenient. We would probably look elsewhere in the future, but this campground was OK for an overnight stay in the area.

We upgraded to Premium site and it was great. It had a very nice, paver patio with a table and chairs (including umbrella), a paver wall and also a gas grill (provide your own gas). Our site was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful in recommending someone to do a little repair work on our motorhome and also recommending someone to wash and wax our motorhome during our stay. The remainder of the campground was just OK. It was extremely hot during our stay and the pool area was completely unshaded. No trees or other shade. The pool was a pretty basic pool. It did it's job for the kids as far as helping to cool them down: but was very average as far as pools go. There really is no playground to speak of. It also, was in the middle of a field with no shade or shelter from the sweltering heat. This was an OK place to stay, convenient for driving to Williamsburg and visiting the area. While I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to staying here in the future, we would probably look for something a little closer to the activities and with better amenities.

While many of the amenities were nice, including the pools, the cafe, the campground store; we weren't thrilled with our site. It was tight for our motorhome and not ideally situated. We never used the campfire ring, one of our favorite things when camping: because it was literally within 8 feet of our neighbors sewer. The smell was awful. Just space wise, we would have had to make a 3/4 circle around the fire or place a chair directly over their sewer. When I called back in February we had requested specific spots for our stay. Upon arriving we were told that specific sites cannot be reserved and the sites we had requested were not available. Although we noticed that the following day they were empty and remained empty for the remainder of our 1 week stay. Besides our site being very small for our 39' motorhome, the location of the site was excellent. It was directly across from the pool, which was ideal for us. We ate a couple of breakfasts in the cafe. The food was good and our kids really enjoyed it. We were a short drive away from the subway system, which was a great way to get around Washington D.C. I would highly recommend using the subway system. We would stay here again if visiting Washington. No, not everything was perfect, but overall it was a good experience.

This is our 4th stay at this campground and we really like it. There are activities for all ages, including a great swimming pool with children's area, shuffle board, miniature golf, lawn bowling, jumping pillow for the kids and many more. The staff is very friendly and helpful, as are the other campers. The best beach in the USA (Siesta Key) is only a 15 minute drive away, as well as the Mote Aquarium, Sarasota Children's Museum, movies and many restaurants. We love getting out of the Ohio winter and staying here whenever we can!

Overall a very nice campground. The pool is very small. The playground is very limited. We reserved early and had a great location with a very nice grassy area for our children to play in and to have a campfire. We did notice that many of the other sites did not have as much room. No cable, which would've been nice. Very close to historic Lebanon, which had many shops that my wife enjoyed. Very close (15 min drive) to King's Island, which was our main reason for camping here. Driving the motorhome and our tow vehicle around the pullout road for the office was very tight as was the entrance to the campground. We would stay here again. Staff was friendly.

We loved our stay at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground. We had a premium site and were very close to the pool and store. It was an easy bus or boat ride to all of the parks. Our family really enjoyed the nightly Sing Along with Chip and Dale, campfire and outdoor movies. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience!

We absolutely love this park! We chose to stay about half way back in the park and off the beach. Our space is directly across from a great pool (1 of 2), very level and very spacious. Nice cement pads with a great patio area. The beach is absolutely pristine! The staff is very friendly and everything has been perfect here. We will definitely be back!

The staff was very friendly from beginning to end which was really nice. They offered great advice about Mesa Verde National Park which was very helpful. The kids loved the pool and playground areas. The area we camped in was all gravel, no trees or grass, which is a negative for us. The sites were plenty big for our motorhome and tow car. We would stay here again if in the area.

This was a very nice campground. The grass in between the sites was a nice addition. Our family enjoys evening dinner outside, and our only complaint was the cottonwood trees which virtually made this impossible. At times it seemed it was snowing from all of the cottonwoods. Other than that it was a very nice park. The kids would have liked a pool, but there wasn't one. Very close to Arches National Park which we really enjoyed.

Our family absolutely loved this campground. The staff was always very friendly and very helpful. The paved roads and cement sites, along with the grass in between was beautiful. They have a great pool that the kids loved. Very close to Zion National Park. We are on a 3 week trip from Ohio to the southwest and this has been by far the best campground we stayed at. We would stay here again in a second!

We camped here over the Memorial Day weekend. The campground is split in half with a pretty busy road in the middle. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sign at the pool states "no sun tan preparations" and they want you to take a soap shower before entering the pool. I've never heard of a pool where you can't protect yourself from the damaging sun. Overall we had a great time and we would definitely return.

This campground was a very pleasant surprise for my family and me. We saw the other good reviews so we camped here 4th of July weekend. The campground was very well kept, and the staff was very friendly. They have Wi-fi that worked very well but no cable - which is the only reason I didn't give them a 10. There is a nice miniature golf course that is free, and a "farm" area with pheasants, bunnies, chickens, roosters and pheasants. At another area there are goats that the kids enjoyed feeding. The pool looked very nice, but we were busy doing other things and didn't get to swim. Our family had a lot of fun at this campground and after over 10 years of camping it is one of our favorites. We will definitely be back soon.

We stopped here as an overnight stay on the way home to Ohio. It has very easy access in and out and is very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free Wi-Fi didn't work very well and we were fairly close to the office. We would definitely stay here again for an overnight stop but not any longer.

We spent a week here and at first were worried about all of the golf carts and campers around. This is a huge campground. After setting up and looking around, however, we were pleasantly surprised. There definitely are a lot of golf carts and campers, but we will stay here again when returning to Myrtle Beach. The beach area is great, and we were a short 2 minute walk from the beach. The pool and lazy river were a lot of fun for the kids and adults alike. The campground store was well stocked and every staff member we came across was very friendly and helpful. The only reason for the downgrade to a 9 is the massive amount of campers here, but if you can overlook that and enjoy your stay you will have a lot of fun. We can't wait to return.
