This used to be our campground of choice in this beautiful area. Our children and grandchildren live near this campground so it was a great choice when it was owned by the Gabriels. Sandy always ran it with all children under control. Now under new ownership it has changed for the worse. Children are tolerated only . We did not in any way feel the grandchildren were welcomed there. We were forced to pay for an extra campsite even tho all non campers paid day use fees. Our older grandchildren were told they could not walk around the park unattended. They are 12. 14 and 15. This is an age where they do not need attending. The manager drove around constantly in a golf cart to make sure we adhered to all rules at all times. It was very clear he did not like any local person there. The manager also walked into our motor home with out knocking to inform us our granddaughter must be with an adult to walk around. She is 14. It was not a safety issue it was an issue of her being a local person as there were other children not attended and not being harassed. This is a camp ground in beautiful shade that is very old and thus has an appeal of an old resort. The sites are sometimes hard to get in and out of but the actual beauty of the place makes up for it. This was in the old days of the old owners. Now the place is looking more like a campground but the plumbing in the restrooms is bad . Toilets don't flush, showers don't work, or have such low flow it is hard to rinse soap out of hair. The restrooms were just plain dirty now. The live ins also made noise all night long. Cars going in and out all night long into the long term area. We left 3 days early. From this place we went to Benbow resort. There our grandchildren were welcomed even tho they were locals. No shade at all but a purely pleasant experience and modern restrooms and hookups that allowed our air in daytime and heat at night time. We will never go back to Dean creek again We camped at Dean Creek Resort in a Motorhome.
