This is a tough one. This wasn't what most people (I would assume) consider "camping". This RV destination in sandwiched between a busy state road and an equally busy train track. Both may be heard throughout the night. There are many convenient paved and level pads on which to park. However, there are so few trees, that there isn't much reprieve from the heat - approx. 85 - 90 degrees F the days we stayed there. The lawns that they do have are meticulously taken care of, and there are several beautifully landscaped flower beds and gardens, they just aren't where the campers are staying. It is similar to camping in a busy strip mall parking lot. One of our children even exclaimed on the first morning that he could see the (insert name of giant fast food chain with golden "M") sign from our site. Not exactly what I call getting away from it all. On the other hand, the facilities that were there, were immaculately kept. The grounds, showers, laundry, etc, were very well maintained thanks to a very industrious owner who was always hard at work. In the same vein, the staff were very proficient and extremely friendly. The "lake" that this place offers is actually small pond decent enough for little ones who like to fish. I feel bad giving this place a 7 score, because I'm sure for some people, it's wonderful and the staff works so hard to make it a clean environment. I guess we were just looking for something a little more wooded. We camped at Poncho's Pond RV Park in a Motorhome.
