Date of Stay: May, 2011
We camped here for Memorial Day weekend. The kids were kept busy with tons of family friendly activities. The staff was constantly checking to make sure everyone was having a great time. Even when the power went out through no fault of the campground (an electric company issue), they went out of their way to be helpful to anyone affected by the power outage. I was amazed at how difficult some campers became and yet, the staff kept their cool and acted professionally at all times. We would absolutely camp here again.

We stayed here for Heroes Weekend and had a great time fishing in the lake and attending the activities that weekend. The only problem we ran into that weekend was that the site we were assigned was extremely difficult to get into with our trailer because of the trees in the site. It took some help from friends, but we were finally able to get into the site. The positive thing though was that the sites were "stone" so we didn't have a problem with mud after the rain that first evening.

This is our third year returning to this campground. Our family absolutely loves it there. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay with them comfortable and fun. Our 7 yr old absolutely loves this campground and the friends he makes when we stay there. There is a great winery right down the road too. We highly recommend this campground for a peaceful weekend - especially if you have young children.

The campground is beautiful and easy to get to. Unfortunately for us, it rained the entire weekend so our site was one giant puddle. However, the staff did ask if we wanted to move our trailer because of the puddle. We chose not to simply because it would have been more trouble to try to hook up in the rain just to move sites. The sites by the stream were very peaceful and relaxing. Some of the sites are small and they are very strict about rules such as "no alcoholic beverages" and "lights out" by midnight. However, there were other perks that were great such as dinner delivery from a local italian restaurant if you chose to participate, a pet playground for dogs, and also the bathrooms were some of the best we've seen camping. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed ourselves despite the miserable weather. We would definitely camp here again.

We camped here for Camp Clean-Up Weekend where they offer free camping for the weekend if you volunteer to help clean up the camp from the winter season. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and help with cleaning up the grounds. The jobs were easy - and my six year old even enjoyed helping to pitch in with washing the Yogi statue at the entrance. For less than 2 hours work, we received a completely free weekend and a free lunch on Saturday (hot dogs and chips) provided by the staff. You can't beat that deal! The rest of the weekend was full of activities for the kids and we had a great time. The only problem that we encountered was visitors who did not want to obey the speed limit rules. The campground cannot be faulted for that though as the staff did try to impose the speed limits whenever possible, including asking campers to leave if they could not follow the rules. They went above and beyond trying to keep our children safe even at the risk of losing future business by asking people to leave. We had an amazing time and will be back several more times this year.

We camped here several times in 2008, and each time it was a wonderful experience. I am shocked at some of the other reviews, especially with regards to the staff. As a Customer Service Manager, I tend to be a bit over-critical at times about the level of customer service that I expect. However, this campground has far exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at the dedication level of the owners and staff to insure that everyone is having a good time. They truly make you feel like you are a part of their extended family coming "home" for the weekend. The owners resolved any issues quickly, even when it was not their fault (such as non-campers causing problems in the campground). On one occasion, it was raining terribly and the owners drove through the campground asking if any of the families needed supplies from town as they were making a trip for themselves and were willing to pick up things for others. Of course, Yogi adds a unique atmosphere to the family camping experience, especially for young children. He just brings a smile to your face when he’s involved with an activity. Our six year old son is already asking when we can return this year to see Yogi! The camp store was fully stocked and prices were very reasonable. There is easy access to the creek for fishing, rafting, swimming, etc. I do agree that the road needs some work but it also prevents drivers from speeding which allows me to feel safer about my child. The bathrooms could use a bit of remodeling, but they certainly aren’t unusable. Perhaps it isn’t a 5 star resort, but who needs that when you are camping? The worst thing about the campground for us was that it isn’t closer to home so that we could go there more often.
