Date of Stay: July, 2009
This park is dead. Nothing going on: no attractions, not even any attractions within 10 miles of the area. Every aspect of this park is out-dated: the laundry facilities, bathrooms, etc. Other campers seem to be quite different. Bathrooms were very unclean, the store was small, out-dated, and extremely under stocked and over priced. The staff has MUCH room for improvement, quite rude, not helpful, and *ahem* lazy. Skip this one, as there is nothing to see, and even less to be desired from the facilities and staff.

Unfortunately, I will never return to this campground. I would go here as a kid: I think I remember the lady that used to run it, and it was great. So, I decided to take my children here one summer for a week. I rented one of the "cabins", which is actually a trailer with faux cabin siding. The bed is actually a futon, and there was duct tape holding our fridge together. I booked about 3 weeks in advance, and mid-week into our trip, they asked us to move cabins! We said OK, and started moving our things. To make a long story short: the "manager" called me to the front office, saying one of my children had urinated on one of the chairs (my child was in diapers at this time), and that we bent the futon frame, (which had already been bent), and they knew this because there was a piece of plywood underneath the futon mattress to (I guess) prevent further bending, instead of just going to Wal-Mart, spending $100 on a new futon. That was the last straw, to be accused of breaking things, and letting my children urinate on furniture as if they were animals. The furniture by the way, is all really old, dumpster diving, furniture. The park attractions are dead. The mini-golf is useless, and scary to the children, as the statues look they were yanked from an abandoned amusement park. The arcade is out-dated, and barely working, the pond is DIRTY. (I know, its a pond but there was trash in it.) The staff was extremely rude. I could go on and on. Try Jellystone if you want a family-friendly vacation. Buena Vista should be crossed off the list for good. They also extort a nice amount of money from you for the water slide, as well. Not to mention that 16 year olds are the ones running the front office, and water slide. I have honestly, never been so insulted, and embarrassed in all my life. Not worth it.
