I almost don't know where to begin describing this dump. To begin with, we made the mistake of "reserving" a site prior to arriving. Boy do I regret doing that now. First when I made the initial reservation, I was quoted a nightly price of $39 for up to 6 people per site. However when I submitted the request, I found I was charge an additional $11; $1 for 50 amp service, and then a further $5 for each person over 2 in the group. I called management, and asked why the additional $10 charge when there was only 4 in the group, (2 adults and 2 kids), all I was given was yes this was true and they do charge for up to 6 in a group. Sadly I accepted this and decided to press-on. Once I got to the "resort", the horrors only just begun. The first warning was trying to access the campground, which is set back in the mountains. You need to pass what looked to be a dump yard, before you reach the duct tape signage. The clubhouse was totally in bad shape. I walked in and the place looked like something out of an old western. Complete with dust and debris everywhere, a portion of the ceiling caving in from water damage. The online pictures of this place were very deceiving. The camp store is little more that 1 or 2 wire racks. Certainly not the full-on store we were lead to believe. If you don't like wild life, i.e., snakes, raccoons, and such, I suggest you keep looking. They posted signs everywhere about these being about. Especially the one about if you find a snake please report it to management. Considering the state of things in the campground, I fully expect many critters to roam freely. Cracked roads everywhere, cabins that look props for horror movie set. The mini-golf area that my kids wanted to use was pealing, overgrown with weeds and debris. I mean when you already know snakes and such are about, why leave the cabin doors open and inviting for animals to visit. The surrounding brush is excellent breeding and nesting areas. I mean this place really stunk and looked bad. If not for the lateness of the hour, we would have left immediately. I would not have cared if I wasted $50, there are much better places a few more miles down the road. Do yourselves a favor folks and just keep driving down the road.

I can rate this campground as useable and accessible since it's just off hwy 99. Check-in was fast and easy, though the sites were a bit far from the club house, spa and restaurant. Bathroom and laundry were clean, and the kids enjoyed the playground. For those seeking to improve their golf game, the links are fairly close to the sites. Though I did not use the facilities. My only complaints were with the spotty electric supply, large yellow boundary boulders to mark each site (caution when maneuvering in and out of the space) and trees too close in to deploy my slide and awning completely. When we were there management said their cable TV was not working, but they are trying to fix it. If you have satellite I don't think there would be a problem because the southern sky is most clear of obstructions. All in all it's a useful place to overnight or maybe base camp for the area. We will be back if in the area again.
