About GLPColorado

We travel full time in our Redwood 5th wheel. We jumped into the full time lifestyle in July 2013--and LOVE IT! We enjoy staying in campgrounds. We like to be around other people. We also enjoy the amenities. Getting cell phone and satellite are important to us, because this is our home. We like to primarily use our Coast to Coast and our Resorts of Distinction memberships.

Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was very easy to find. Sites are close together, but because there are trees throughout; the sites don't feel as close as they actually are. There was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. They easily handle big rigs. Gravel roads through the campground. Sites are all very level. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and grill. The campground is about 30 minutes from Myrtle Beach-but it is so quiet it is like being in a different world. Verizon coverage is ok, there were times throughout our visit that the signal was lost-but it was only temporary. We were able to get DirecTV satellite.

The last couple of roads getting into the campground were VERY narrow. The last 1½ miles is a 2 lane road with swamp on both sides for much of the length of the road. The lanes were only about 6 ft. wide, our 8 ft. wide 5th wheel took up part of the lane for on-coming traffic. Luckily we didn't meet other vehicles because one of us would have had to back out of the winding road. These roads leading into the campground are enough to make us very hesitant to return. We were there during December and the campground was nicely decorated. The campground was lovely. There were trees surrounding the campground, with a pond in the middle. Most of the campsites backed up to the pond. Sites are very reasonable in size. There was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. The campground easily handles big rigs. There are asphalt roads through the campground. Each camp site had gravel area for RV. Each site has a concrete patio with a nice picnic table. There is grass between the sites. Sites are all very level. Pool was closed because of the time of year-but it looked like a nice pool area. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. This campground offers a very quiet, pretty place to relax. If the road getting to the campground were better (wider) I would not hesitate recommending it.

Price reflects ROD membership. Campground was easy to find. (We followed directions on C2C website.) They have a "fun center" on site with bowling, exercise room and other activities. It is odd that the hot tub is in a different building than the indoor pool. There is a restaurant at the campground, but it is only open on a very limited basis. When checking into the campground, they direct campers through a very narrow drive with a fence on both sides. It was very challenging to maneuver through this area. While we were there, another camper ran into the fence causing damage to their camper and the fence. The fenced area is a very poor design; they need to find a different solution to put campers while waiting for registration. Because of the trees and the very narrow roads through the campground, the sites are hard to get into. Sites are close together, but there are enough trees that it makes it have a little separation. Campsites have a concrete pad to park the RV. The concrete pad helps the sites to be level. Each site had a wooden patio with a picnic table. There is also a charcoal grill at each site. Well maintained roads through the campground. Laundry Room is so small that the doors of the dryers don't fully open-they are stopped by the washers. We had to use our booster to get Verizon coverage. Not a prayer of getting DirecTV satellite in these trees.

This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they handle big rigs. Sites are VERY close together. Sites were not level, we saw campers with wheels off the ground to get level. They were full on the weekends and it felt like the campers were sitting on top of each other. Power was a significant issue. Our power went out several times; we had to find staff to flip the breaker. In talking with other campers, power fluctuation and loss is a normal occurrence. They were also working on the water lines throughout our 2 week stay. Multiple times our water was shut off-with NO NOTICE. Campground sponsored weekend activities-mostly for kids. We left to get groceries, when we came back they had the entrance blocked and we couldn't get into the campground. We told the staff member that was "guarding" the front entrance that we had been given no notice of the closure and had groceries that needed to get into freezer. His response: "Oh, Well. Bummer". Gravel roads through the campground, but they were well maintained. Each camp site is gravel. Some of the campsites had a small patch of grass. Sites are all very level. Each site had a fire ring and picnic table. Only 30 amps available. No sewer hookups, there is a dump station to use as you exit. They also have a honey wagon available for an additional cost. There is a nice laundry room, but it was more expensive than most we have seen. Good Verizon coverage. We had DirecTV satellite, but about ½ of the campsites could not have gotten satellite due to trees. Bottom line for us: communication between staff and campers is pitiful at best. We would stay here again, but understanding what we may experience. Know what to expect here: poor power, possible water issues, small sites, and rude staff.

Price reflects ROD membership. Campground was very easy to find. There still had weekend activities (potluck, etc.) even late in the season. The pool was open but very cold. They had a playground and other outside activities. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they can manage big rigs; but only a few of the sites will work for large RVs. Very tight getting into site-but it was workable. It was nice they had a parking area for the truck and the jeep, so we didn't need to keep those on our site. Gravel roads through the campground. Sites are level. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Good Verizon coverage. Spotty DirecTV satellite. Nice little campground. I would stay here again; just make sure to understand campground size; but no hesitations otherwise.

Price reflects C2C membership-Good Neighbor Park. Campground was very easy to find-although their signs were small. Check in is easy, as the gate guard/staff had all of our check in paperwork ready when we pulled in. We stayed here in September and so there were no activities and the pool was already closed. Sites are average to small in size. We were able to fit the truck, 5th wheel and jeep-but there was no room to spare. Campground can easily handle big rigs; but be aware that the trees can make maneuvering a challenge. Because some of the sites are smaller, there are boats, trucks and vehicles that extend into the road-adding to the already narrow roads. Sites are close together, but the trees bring some separation. Gravel, well maintained, roads through the campground. Each camp site is gravel. Sites are all very level. Each site has a picnic table. Good Verizon coverage. Because of the trees, we had no DirecTV satellite. We might have enjoyed the campground more if any of the amenities had been available. Also, we prefer to not have solid trees, someone else will appreciate all the trees. The campground was very clean and well taken care of. We would stay here again, just be aware of the campsite and the challenge getting into and out of site; and the thick trees. Loved the area and the campground has easy access to Cape Cod attractions.

Price reflects C2C (Good Neighbor) discount. Campground was very easy to find and easy to get into. We stayed here after Labor Day and so the pool was closed. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they very easily handle big rigs. Our site was large enough for the 5th wheel and jeep. We were able to park the truck at the office (which was very close to our site). All of the sites are very level. The sites are gravel with a grass area for the picnic table. Gravel roads through the campground, so there was a lot of dust-but the roads are in good shape. It is obvious they take a lot of pride in this resort-it is very clean and well kept. Campground is directly on the ocean, most sites have a view of the water. Campground is very close to Acadia National Park. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. We would definitely come here again. Pretty view and close to National park; as well as, close to town for shopping.

Price reflects C2C membership. We called ahead for better directions - GPS wanted us to go through a low covered bridge. Look closely at the map before going in. It was easier for us to unhook our toad on the road before getting to the office. The layout of this campground is like a maze with LOTS of trees. We knew we would have a very hard time getting a site with any sun, but we asked. We were told there were no sites available that were not deep in the trees and our site had already been assigned to us. Our friends came in after us and they were told to go pick a site and given several to choose from...several were sunny options. So it was frustrating to us to be told we had no options. There are quite a few permanent seasonal residents with a lot of yard decorations. Our site was large and had plenty of room for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. However, I would say the campground is a challenge for big rigs. Sites manage the rigs, but the roads and trees do not. I would say it is almost impossible to go in and out of this campground without scraping a tree branch. Gravel, well maintained, roads through the campground. Each camp site is gravel. Sites are level. Each site had a picnic table. There was a lovely little beach and swimming area on the lake that the campground maintained. Good Verizon coverage. NO satellite (at least in most of the campground). It is away from major roads, there is no road noise. For us there were too many trees, so it felt dark and overcast; additionally the trees meant no satellite. This a nice campground to get away and enjoy a quiet weekend - just drive carefully in the campground.

Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was very easy to find, however we thought we were lost because it seemed like we were driving down the country road forever. There are a ton of trees throughout the campground, although they said they continually thin them out. Our campsite had big tree roots all over, so we had to be very careful walking so we didn't twist an ankle. The campsites are average size-we were able to park the truck, 5th wheel and jeep in our site. The roads were a little challenging because of the trees, however there is definitely room for big rigs. Management is continuing to try to make it easier for the big rigs. Dirt roads through the campground. Camp sites are dirt and pine needles, some sites do have grass. The lack of grass is because of the trees-not the campgrounds fault. Only 30 amps available, but we had no power issues. Pool was very cold and closed for the season while we were there. Campground has river access and you could swim in the river-if you want. Good Verizon coverage. Because of the trees, DirecTV satellite was spotty at best.

Passport America-but only on weekdays. It is a narrow road leading up to the campground, but no problem. We came in a hour earlier than check in and the manager was very unhappy about this and made sure we knew it. The campground has several distinct areas for camping. Some areas are in the trees and the sites are very close together. The area we were in was more like an open field of grass. The sites around us were very large, definitely set up for the larger rigs. We were thankful to be in this area. There was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. There are gravel and dirt roads through the campground and they were not well maintained. Each site had a picnic table. Pool was cold and very small. We were able to get Verizon signal using a booster-nothing without the booster. Good DirecTV satellite signal because we were in the area outside the trees. Nothing great, but it is a fine place to stop and rest for a few days.

Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was very easy to find. The staff in this campground were all very friendly and helpful. We were there at the end of the season and so they were beginning to shut things down. They have a restaurant, but it is only open on weekends. (We were ok without a lot going on, so this isn't a negative... just a comment.) This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they easily handle big rigs. Sites are close together but manageable. The truck, 5th wheel and jeep all fit in the site-but very tight. Gravel roads through the campground; asphalt main campground roads. Camp sites are grass and each site has a picnic table. We struggled getting level in our site-there was a significant slope. They have a laundry room, machines were only $1. Campground is directly on the lake. There was a great deck overlooking the lake that we enjoyed while waiting for laundry. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. It is a nice clean, enjoyable campground. There seemed to be a lot for kids to do.

Price is ROD membership. Standard parking lot campground. They can manage big rigs. Each camp site is gravel and grass. Good Verizon coverage. Easy DirecTV satellite we were not parked in trees. This is where the good stops. We camped for a week & repeatedly heard staff screaming at campers. They have a 5 mph speed limit. Once we were following a vehicle (they absolutely were NOT speeding), maintenance man started yelling & waving his arms like they were going 100 mph. There are railroad ties outlining campsites. Several of the ties from our site were rotting and severely damaged-pieces were lying in our site. We didn't see all of the wood pieces-but I didn't inspect the campsite. Before coming to Lazy Lakes, we have never cleaned a campsite before pulling in. We got an immediate blowout on our truck. The hole was 1" in diameter. The 1st person that looked at the tire apologized and said they would make sure the tire was taken care of. The 2nd person didn't care about the problem-just wanted to make sure he could totally blame us. After multiple attempts we finally spoke to the manager. His only response was to tell us to "turn it into our insurance-it was not their problem". (Our deductible-not theirs) Originally we didn't expect them to pay for the tire-we wanted them to know they had an issue. It would have been nice for them to act like they cared or at least not blame us for the debris in their campground. It would have been great if they had been even a little professional. So our warning... "Camper Beware". If you have an issue, they very likely won't care. There are 2 pools; however 1 pool was closed. There is a pond with swim beach. No one was swimming; the swimming area was full of slime and trash. It was disgusting. Bottom line: Verizon & DirecTV coverage were good. The staff is hateful and power crazed. The amenities are there, but may be unusable. Carefully check your site for campground damage and debris.

They offer Passport America discounts, but only on select days of the week. Look closely at GPS, make sure to stay on main town streets (we went OH-534 to OH-531)-town streets are very narrow. There are many possible activities at the resort-miniature golf, fishing, playground and more. Easily handle big rigs. There are some full hookups, but there were no available full hookups when we called. There are several "Open" areas. The open areas are grass with some trees. There are electric poles for 30 amp and water spickets. There are picnic tables and fire rings throughout the area. If you can go without sewer hookup, the open area may allow a larger site. Lots of amenities to keep you as busy. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. Our negatives will be others' positives... there were a ton of kids. Adults AND Kids were speeding around on golf carts. Everyone seemed to have a dog, and most of them were barking. It was a nice place to hang out for a few days. It really was a lovely campground and we would definitely stay here again.

Price reflects Passport America membership. Campground had good signs to mark direction-3 miles off Hwy 2. This is campground is full of trees-so some of the sites could be very challenging getting into. However, we were able to get our truck and 5th wheel parked in our site and she told us to use the site beside us for extra parking. Sites are very close together-workable with some maneuvering. Campground is primarily dirt, gravel and trees. Sites are all very level. 30 and 50 amps available. Campground has an access to Lake Michigan (for viewing, not for swimming). Good Verizon coverage. We enjoyed going to the lighthouse about 15 miles up the road, easy access to Lake Michigan. It was a good overnight option.

This campground is a great hidden treasure. Campsites are large. We easily fit our truck, 5th wheel & jeep in our site. Other than small pads for camper, the campground is total grass. Each site has a picnic table. 30 & 50 amps available. Sites are electric only-no water or sewer at campsites. There is a dump station at the entrance of the campground. There are 2 water faucets to fill fresh water tank before pulling into site. We found the water faucets hard to get to, but not impossible. Lack of water and sewer would definitely NOT prevent us from coming back. Campground is directly on the Lake Superior. Asphalt roads through the campground. Some of the corners are tight, however we easily managed to get our Big Rig into a site. Suggest disconnecting toad vehicle and "scouting" sites & campground layout before taking RV in. There is a nice playground. There are picnic tables throughout the park. A large pavilion is available for an organized event/gathering. There is a boat dock, however, it needs some work-it appears to be unstable. Nice little beach (wish it were larger). There are a couple of places to get directly into Lake Superior from the campground. In addition to the regular campground, they have an overflow area. There are no hookups in the overflow, but it is nice to have that option. We were nervous about being able to get a site--they do not accept reservations. We came in mid-week & were able to get a great site. Campground is consistently full, so suggest not coming in on a Friday. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. Very strong Wi-Fi. We look forward to coming back! We loved the small town feeling, hope they don't change a thing.
