Date of Stay: July, 2006
All and all, my family had fun here. Here are some pros and cons as I saw them: Pros: FREE BBQ dinner Saturday night, and continental B’fast Monday morning, (4th of July Weekend). Very nice! Also, some pretty views of the river and some mountains, but not at my site. We enjoyed the free arts and crafts for the kids, hayrides, dance party with live entertainment, bonfire, & bingo (small fee). Small playground area that my kids liked. There was a nice, little stream in which my kids went looking for (and finding) frogs. Newspaper delivered on site each morning, and garbage pick up each afternoon. Cons: Tiny pool in which it felt like the entire campground wanted to squeeze into. Way too much chlorine, yuck. And speaking of yuck, the bathrooms were just horrible. I don’t think the floors have seen a mop in months, and don’t get me started on the showers... (Just don’t forget your flip-flops!) Also, the toilet paper ran out consistently all weekend. Overall, a good time was had by all, and if you have an RV with the built in bathroom, you won’t have much to worry about.

This campground was great for my kids, (9, 6, and 4), who all enjoyed the amenities – including the arts and crafts, fire truck rides, game room, mini-golf, fishing pond, and the freezing cold pools. (We camped on Memorial Day weekend, and while we were lucky enough to have nice weather, those pools were cold!!) I was not happy with the site that I was assigned, and since they were booked up for the weekend, the location could not be changed. I was basically in a open parking lot, and we had a small pop-up among the rows of highly sophisticated RVs. (We called it the millionaires’ row!) There were much better sites, with trees for shade, and some feeling of camaraderie between the campers – alas – they were not to be for my family this time. I couldn’t escape the feeling that this was like camping in the city. There were actually street lights on at night, which did help guide my way to the restrooms, but also obstructed my view of the stars at night. A plus for some, a negative for others. A few positives – on site garbage pickup, very nice and I appreciated the private showers. The store had lots of cool gadgets, and was not unreasonably priced. The restrooms started out clean, but by the early evening, they could have been cleaned again. The paper towels and soap dispensers were depleted often. All and all, a nice place for the kids, and I would return if I could be guaranteed the type of site that I was hoping for.
