I agree with previous posts. Yes, roads are terrible; they do somewhat help to slow down the speed of the golf carts that run rampant. There doesn’t seem to be any funds being used to update the campground. The bathhouses are dirty and bug infested; the one by the river even had what looked to be human waste on the walls. It seems to be mainly used by the daily visitors who come to swim in the river. In my option this is a safety hazard to the children at the campground. These people drive up, pay the fee and have full access of the campground without any record of names or license numbers. My main complaint however was the raw sewage that covered the ground and was literally bubbling out of the drains. Initially we thought the problem was isolated to the campsite next to us but by the end of the weekend the problem was with most of the row of sites. By the second night our puppies started vomiting; by the third we were all nauseous. It rained the third night so it was impossible for us to leave and the rain water mixed in with the sewage; gross does not come close to describing it. Once the rain cleared out the humidity kicked in and the smell was unmistakable. Our camper and everything in it will be disinfected before we can use it again. We will definitely not be camping at Hidden Oaks in the future, and I do not recommend it.

Everything about this campground was top notch. I loved the security of the gate access & the fact that they designate someone to assist you to park (great for night arrivals). There are lots of rules, but I think that's a positive thing, and it shows the owners want this campground to be around and be in great shape for years to come. The pool area is unbelievable; it looks like something you'd see in the Caribbean. The weekend we camped there was a band and fun was had by young and old. However, when 10:30 rolled around there was a security guard riding around to ensure everyone had parked their golf carts and was actually quieting down. The Wi-Fi was strong (and free) and the store was fully stocked. The ladies at the reservation desk were very helpful. It could not have been a better experience. I highly recommend it, wait…I take that back, as reservations for the summer are filling up fast. You really shouldn’t go there. LOL
