Date of Stay: July, 2010
My family planned to meet with my parents and siblings family at this campground. Once we started seeing some of the reviews, we got extremely nervous and ultimately decided to cancel and stay elsewhere. While we were in the area that week, we drove over to Sand Creek C.G. to see for ourselves how bad this place was. The campsites all seemed to be grassy, decent size and some shaded. None of us recall a playground. We did notice that there was alot of large recreational toys parked on a middle section (boats, older trailers, etc.) We walked into the bathhouse and pool area. This is where all the problems came in. The bathrooms are unbelievable. Tile was missing from the countertops, and from the floors. The ceiling had so many bugs and old water damage that they were bowed in and could collapse at any moment. The ceiling tiles were full of mold, where there was ceiling tile. There was black mold in the shower areas. I would be shocked if the bathhouse has had ANY maintenance OR cleaning in YEARS! It's not even really a matter of updating it, just a matter of upkeep. The pool area was empty. The pool water was not clear. It was very "foggy." The bottom of the pool had a crack across the bottom in need of maintenance.

We actually settled on this campground after we found our original choice had been unmaintained for quite some time. They worked very hard to shuffle incoming campers so that we could have 2 w/s/e beside each other and an additional electric site nearby. All of this on short notice too! The new addition was not impressive. It was a hunk of land that they bulldozed and added w/s/e sites. There were NO trees, it's RIGHT by the road and was gravel. The pond was more like a large puddle and we didn't see anyone pull a thing from it. The office and its staff was all very nice and helpful. The bathhouse was air conditioned They recently painted the shower bricks in a textured paint which looks really nice. The only complaint is that it's very confined and there's no bench. The pool is nice and well maintained. The campsites is where we had our problems. You park on gravel, there's a small slab of cement and even less grass. Our campsites were probably 40 feet long- barely enough to park a 30ft trailer and the tow truck. If you're wanting a lawn, don't expect it here. Shade is also something that was hard to come by. But our chief complaint would be the site sizes. They are tight to begin and then once you let out the slide outs and get stuff unpacked there's barely enough room for the neighbor to get through on their "grass". Due to the size, the fire pits are also very close to either the trailer of the car. I think we would definitely stay here again, but only because we are usually out seeing the sites. I cannot imagine being stuck on the tiny site with 12 people around a fire. Next time we would get reservations in early so we can get a shady grass spot where we can face the 2 trailers to each other and the tent on a site nearby.
