Date of Stay: November, 2016
We called the recording to find out when the office closed which said 5:00pm. We decided we didn't need to call ahead for a reservation but when we arrived at 4:30, the office was closed! We called the number on the door, nobody answered. Late arrival info told us to take a spot right behind the office. As we were staying for three nights, not just overnight, we decided to call the 2nd number in hopes of getting a spot. A man answered and told us that 5:00 was summer hours and they forgot to change the recording. This is November right? He came to help but said he had "No authorization to give us a spot". What? We came directly to the park before picking up our rig because we wanted to make it before closing so we were asked some strange questions about the shape of our rig and that he would have to inspect it before we could stay there. What? Not snobbish much are we? When he finally decided we were good enough to stay there, he told us to take one of the spots behind the office, and could move to another spot in the morning. That's not inconvenient at all! He then said we could stay there all 3 nights. We're not being difficult but we have a young dog in training and there is way too much commotion by the office, we didn't want her to bother everyone if she barked too much. When he refused to call someone to the office who could help and we realized we were getting no where, we decided to go to the other nice place and were checked-in, in less than 5 mins. Again, we're not being difficult, these spots are costly, you should be happy where you're at. We've been to Lakeside many many times, used to store our rig there too. I just hope management/ ownership hasn't changed for the worse. This used to be such a well managed and organized, friendly place. Not sure if we'll be back unless things improve. I sure hope so! If you are going to have someone answering calls, please provide contact information for someone who has authorization to rent out the sites. He was very nice and tried to help as much as possible. I don't place any blame on him, this was a very poor MANAGEMENT decision, he just lacked the required customer service skills.

We stayed here during this past Memorial Day Weekend and found this park to be extremely busy but well kept. The bathrooms were kept clean despite the volume of people using the facilities. The front gate personnel were always polite and happy to see you. I can recommend that campers with children stay here. The beach area is beautiful and plenty of things to do to keep the kids busy!

We have stayed at this RV Park several times over the past 4-5 years and I agree with the other posts that the place is very well kept. The problem I have with this RV Park is that the new managers and staff are not "kid friendly". Past managers and staff were extremely polite to our children. In fact, if you have kids with you, you are treated badly. We have stayed here without our kids and treated fine, but when we have our kids with us it is a different matter. I know the majority of the RV public are "seasoned" campers, but managers and staff should keep in mind that there are younger campers out there who like to stay at quiet campsites who have good kids. I suggest that if you have children, that you look elsewhere. We may not stay here again.

Camping area was dirty and some of the sites were permanent occupant and their campsites were not very well kept. Checked the area out for one night and moved on to another campground
