Easy access and entrance is well marked; located near Old Town Roswell. Staff was very friendly and helpful in providing local information. Pull through sites very easy to access; all service and cable TV worked fine. Restroom was dated but very clean; laundry room was well maintained, grounds are well kept. We had enjoyable stay here and well return.

Easy access to interstate with entrance well marked. Check in was painless and staff was very courteous. Gravel sites with blacktop roads; Sites are head to toe so you are rather close to your neighbor on one side. No shade; it can get warm. Office area has small store and gift shop; There is a enclosed dog run area, and access to open field also used for pets. Overnight or short stay OK, but I would look else were for extended stay. Would use again.

This park is difficult to evaluate because of location (great) and pricing (fair for area), but park has numerous problems. Park was built in the 60's and shows its age. Restrooms are terrible, they should be torn down and replaced. Laundry room is OK but has limited number of machine's. The voltage was low the entire time we were there, in summer months I sure it will drop even more. The spaces are very, very small; When making reservations I kept telling the manager the size of our trailer and that we had slides on one side. He keep replying "no problem", once parked with slides out we completely filled our allotted space, there wasn't room for chairs or BBQ. Too Small. There are only a few pull throughs, and they are very short and small. It appears that many of the occupants have been here for some time, some of the trailers had trash/items under or near their trailers. Sea-Cliff State Beach Park is only one block away, if at all possible I would stay there, I don't believe we will return to this park.

Having spent 8 days here we got a good feel for the park. The owners have hired new managers and they are making great headway in correcting many of the problems pass management left them with. A large percentage of sites are annual but they are still some daily, weekly and monthly sites available. Reservations are a must during peak season (winter months). Pool and Spa are a little rough but repairs are planned for this summer. All public areas were well maintained. I believe this is a 55+ park, I have not seen one child. There is no play area so small children would be bored anyway. There are many activities in the surrounding area; Palm Springs, Tramway, theaters, and etc. We will return next winter for extend stay.

Greetings, We spent 4 evenings here and enjoy every minute of it. The majority of the sites were long term but the folks were very friendly and happily answered questions about the area/dining/points of interest. Pets are really welcome in this park, plenty of area for pet/nature walks. We saw wild turkeys, deer, and rabbits in the park. Restroom/laundry are dated but very clean and well cared for. Grounds were well care for, trash drop of area very clean and organized. Office hours are limited but park manager (Bonnie) and her assistant (Lynn) continually travel around the parks stopping to check on things and talk with folks (nice touch). Children are welcome but there is little to do for the younger ones and no local transportation for teens who may want to go to town. Spaces are very large with easy access. Satellite and Verizon reception were excellent. We will return for longer stay.

Web site stated gravel sites, this is correct. All sites are either gravel or asphalt. Entrance road is in construction area and is in really poor shape, slow down and watch for pot holes. Managers are very nice and helpful, computer in office area is available for use as WiFi was down for repairs while we were there. Restrooms and showers have just been remodeled and are very nice. They were well maintained and cleaned daily. There is a daily pet charge of $1 per day per pet but no pet run or play area. We walked our dogs to entrance where there is a larger dirt area. It looks as if a large percentage of park quests are long term quests but management keeps the park clean and well maintained. There is no grass and a few tree's, I did not see any play area for children. For a short stay or for long term employment stays this would be a nice park, if you are looking for grass, shade trees, sitting out and bbq'ing I would not recommend this park.

We arrived late in the season so the park was not crowed at all, hunting season had started and the gun noise was a wake up call every morning at first light. Our site was very nice but you should be aware that numerous water front and the better trailer sites are already reserved for the up coming season, seasonal rentals. Also be aware that site map does not accurately reflect the size nor the location of shore power and water hook-ups. Unless you are familiar with your site you may want to ensure you bring plenty of hose and extension cord for shore power. There are no sewer connections, dump station is at the very end of camp grounds so I recommend wheeled tote if stay is more than a day or two. Some sites are terraced and narrow, this will allow your neighbors to look right into your windows. OK, my big complaint, $2 per day per pet, there is no pet area or walk area, they just state to clean up after your pet. naturally. So why the cost? This cost is showing up more and more, possibly just a way to increase income. One last item; many back in sites will place you looking away from the lake and at your neighbors trailer wheels, think about this when making your site reservations. Happy Camping.

This is a very relaxing park, many trees with lots of shade and grass. All spaces have picnic table and cabana cover over them. This is our second visit and will use again. Camp hoist is very helpful and ensure that all follow the established rules. No cable TV but local reception with antenna is very good. Would have given 9 or 10 if the bathroom shower area was more user friendly. Presently this bathroom area is open to day picnickers and the boat ramp folks (both located away from overnight camping area)which means they are not really set up with chairs, hot/cold water at sinks, etc. Our last two stays we have had 30 amps, I do not know if 50 amps is available at other sites. Overnight or longer stay should be enjoyed by all.

First off, they do not have cable TV, they have a cable antenna system which receives a few local channels very poorly. I recommend coach antenna if TV is required, reception is very good. There are many newly planted trees and probably an equal number of old trees providing shade. Pull-through site sizes are fine, they have grass and cement pad for picnic table. Now the bad news. $45 per night for weekend is just way to high for this park. When I pay this kind of money, rest rooms should be top notch and up to date, WiFi should be in place, spa should be working all the time, etc. There is nothing in the area to deserve this cost (no Disney Land, water park, etc.) The golf course is currently 18 holes but I understand plans are in place to reduce to 9 holes so park size can be increased. The course is average in upkeep but fun to play, main reason we go there. This time we also had to pay for pets, $2 per dog per night, this is really a rip off. There is one dog run which is filled with pea gravel with a short fence around it. Nothing to warrant the additional charge. We most likely will return but will plan our visits Sunday through Thursday.

A nice family park, on weekends the management provide ice cream social and local musician to sing campfire songs. Small store in office with a few necessaries. A short walk to Columbia State Park, we saw a play at the local play house, it was very enjoyable and reasonably priced. A great place for breakfast or sandwich is Billy's Wiskers. A limited number of pull-through's for larger units, most spaces are back in. Get good directions, GPS will try to take you through the State Park roads which have no vehicle traffic. We will return next year.
