We spent Labor Day weekend at Wading Pines and had a wonderful time! We went tubing 2-3 times every day. The campsite was very nice and clean. The weekend activities were a lot of fun. They have a "train" that takes you for a tour/ride around the campground. My kids absolutely loved it!! We stayed on an electric/water site as the sewer ones were taken. As a result, we used the camp showers. Unfortunately, these were our ONLY issue. The shower heads (front showers) had only cold water and the water that did come out was just a trickle or a single stream of water. We did alert the camp store, and they said they looked into it. We only used the shower once so I'm not sure if it was fixed. Although we did see someone go in with tools. The camp store is very well stocked, and the folks are very friendly. We'll definitely be camping here again. It's wonderful that you can walk a 1/4 mi up the road, jump in and tube for an hour before ending back up at the campsite!

We've been coming to this campground for the past 5 years and have watched them transition from a pool and mini-golf course to what it is now. My girls had a blast. However, as the previous reviewer mentioned, there were some issues that need to be addressed. The problem with the hornets, yes, paper nest hornets, and bees at the pool, pavilion and camp store needs to be addressed. My daughter was stung and thankfully didn't have a reaction. When I mentioned this to the camp store, I was told they had ice for sale in the freezer! I wasn't looking for a hand out, but, I certainly was looking for a little compassion for my 5 year old along with a promise to do something. We MUST have been at the pool the same week because there were many parents with non-potty trained kids in both the water park AND pool, sans swim diapers! The lifeguards refused to question the parents. Low and behold, for 3 days in a row, we had human waste in the pool AND waterpark! Once again, nothing done. The activities are wonderful as are the camp counselors. The girls had a wonderful time. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I didn't have to carry a fly swatter around to chase the bees!
