Very quiet park. Too quiet for us. Mostly permanent/owners residents but their sites are super clean, for most. Beside the pool and a "home style spa" there is nothing to do. I have not seen any activities going on during the weekend. Not much for the kids either. Wi-fi was excellent. No cable but many tv stations with antenna. Sites that did not belong to residents needs tender loving care. Grass was long (to seeds!). Showers were ok but not impressive for a resort, very little water pressure. Travelers sites are very very near each other. I could see the inside of our neighbours easily during his meal time. So we had to shut our blinds to keep some privacy. They ate outside and were on our site due to space nearness. Site was level on gravel, very little grass, more like weeds. Not that many trees in the travelers. The pool area has no shade at all. So it can get pretty hot unless you find a regular chair to sit under the mini roof of the gym area. A few umbrellas would be welcomed for those who cannot tolerate sun for too long. Each site had a swing chair, nice real patio set and nice fire place with grill. I saw wood bundles at 9$. That is a lot in comparision to other places we go to. Staff was very very nice, so were the residents we talked to.

Premium sites are big enough. Neighbours are near but not that bad. We used the showers and they were 50 cents for 7 minutes. Hot water and enough time to shower. Old but does the job. Did not use other facilities as we were on our way next morning to our vacation destination and got there at dinner time and left for dinner and errands. My downside and the reason we will not return is that we had reserved stating we had dogs and they never told us there was a limit of 2. We had 3. On their website, there is nothing about quantity or size (mine are little ones). She barely told us to turn around and go... heuh.... it's because I was told I was ok and now I can't once I'm here. Anyway, she let me but told me next time to leave one at home. Not going to happen. I'll just go elsewhere. Too bad as this would be a favorite campground for us as transition and even for a 3 day weekend to go cycling, etc. Staff at front desk is ok but the person was alone, on a rush hour (arrivals early evening) so be prepared to wait. I had been told by regular it is often the case. But overall, nice campground, very clean, quiet. Yes you can hear the road traffic but not a show stopper to sleep as we had air conditionning on as our neighbours kept banging their doors at all hours and the neighbour was talking loud at 10:30pm on a business call and swearing, etc. outside! So much for courtesy to others.

Excellent stay as usual. Wi-fi was excellent. They had a new system in All was clean, staff very nice. Ample of activities to choose from.

We got there and they were closed (which we knew). But getting to our site was not easy when pitch black. If you are with a car only, it is not bad missing a turn, but when in motorhome and towing, it is not a piece of pie. Even getting to the campground can be pretty tricky. So slow down once you get in the lake area as curves are "risky". When making reservation, we asked for a pull through site as we were towing and did not want to unhook since we were arriving very late. We were told it would be fine. Surprise! Surprise! The site barely fits our 34’ motorhome. It was touching both ends of streets. We were lucky no tents or other cars were parked in front of us otherwise no clue how we would have been able to pull out easily. We got there after heavy rain. Our site was on grass, so very muddy and slippery = dirty to get inside. We could not find our sewer on the ground (rain, leaves on ground, mud). A post would have been a nice thing to have to avoid wasting 15 minutes in darkness with flashlight trying to find that sewer. It only had a red cap on it when we found it – lucky find. Showers!!! We went to take a shower after a long stressful drive. The men’s one had no hooks anywhere in the stall. Husband would have had to put clothes and bottles on the floor. I could hear him talk to me on his side and he said it was dirty and smelled so bad. I put my bathrobe on and crossed on the other side of the block. The smell was unbearable, and no hooks. So I told him to switch to women’s side since it was late and no one around. Outside it was around 6c and all the windows were opened. No way for us to close them as too high and of course, no heat on. Why were all windows opened at this time of year when it is very cold and rainy. And it was like this on the 2nd night so we showered in our motorhome, even if more complicated for us. It’s not because you are “camping” in "off-season" that you should freeze or be unable to use facilities because not many campers are there. We still paid for facilities. Put the heat on, and close the windows. Wi-fi is free and fast. But make sure you get your coupon codes every day as they are valid for 24hrs only. We did not know that. If you activate at night and you don’t know (as no message pops up saying you are activating for 24hrs), the office may be closed when those expire and you will be out of internet until the office reopens. To me, the campground is not as nice as what I would have thought from pictures. All seems crowded. We were there in the Fall when few people around. I don’t want to imagine the place when campground is full. Must be really crowded. But resort??? No. At least from others I have been to. Staff is very friendly. Campground was very clean in general (although bathhouses we used are really in need for an upgrade). Roads are narrow, but all paved. That is nice. We will not return as for us, too many negatives to enjoy our stay.

Wi-Fi and cable were excellent. Bathrooms were old but OK. Pull-through site was long enough to keep car tow attached. OK for a night stay (note that it is fall and no big activity going on so price it too high for what's it worth). I don't understand why prices are high when all is closed but mandatory facilities. Will not return unless for late in/early out.

We stayed there October 2012 and 2013 and very good campground. Shuttle tours right at your door. Everything is cleaned, staff friendly. We are always using the P section which gives you long and wide sites. For motorhomes (A). Nice small dog park where they can be off-leash a little bit. Near all attractions.

We were to stay here almost over a week as we are meeting friends that live in Smyrna. After a few days we moved out to a KOA where we were last year and enjoyed, although further away from friends and more expensive. I'll save money elsewhere. This place is a mess. The seasonal (or is it yearly) sites are falling apart for most. And it is mostly a campground of seasonal. We were put in-between two. Junk everywhere and nothing cleaned/maintained on their sites (all over campground). I can't believe this campground has not been shut down yet. Owners may be very nice but they have no pride in what they own for sure. Staff very polite and helpful. Showers are hot but old. Walls/ceiling paint is chipping, mildew, but clean. Wi-fi is excellent. The best I've seen in campgrounds. Pull-through sites???? Oh they have some. But you have to unhook your car or it won't fit for most anyway. Sites are glued almost together. I could read from the inside of the other RV what the person is reading. We will not return here and will not recommend either. For a night, if you ignore your surroundings, if you do not need to walk your dogs, do not need to get out you maybe fine. But other than that, not worth the detour.
