A lot of full-timers in this park. And, many of them need to clean up their places! Many are very, very old and in disrepair. The office person was very friendly and professional. We had no problems. Our site was convenient, although not very big. Most have nice concrete patios. It is not exactly pet friendly. They allow dogs, but do not have a fenced dog park. And, they expect you to go out in the dirt and mud in the front of the park near the highway to walk your dog!! Most dog owners are responsible...perhaps the poop that is found sometimes...is from the bears! Bears appear often at night in this park, although no one mentioned any issues other than they get into garbage sometimes. I personally enjoy walking my dog on the paved roads throughout a campground. It has a laundry room and a swimming pool and community room. I discovered a nice building hidden in a storage area that has work-out equipment...don't know who gets to use it.

Wifi is supposed to be available, for a huge fee! None was available at our site. Free Wifi at the community building is very poor! Construction noise started at 7 am! Glad that is over! Electrical and water issues regularly. Few picnic tables. If you ask for one, they will "put you on the list" but none ever arrived. Snack bar is closed. Several bathrooms/laundry rooms are under renovation and closed. This park is busy in the winter...why didnt the construction work on the campsites and the buildings occur during the summer when they have very few campers? The fenced dog park is welcome. The childrens game room is gone. The "store" has very few items, mostly Thousand Trails promotion merchandise. The registration is a nightmare...having to drive around to find an available campsite. The most desired ones are not available, with signs and/or bags on the posts. The front-desk young lady was very kind, professional and friendly.

Stayed for one night on the way to Barber Vintage Motorcycle Festival. It is about a 25 minute drive to Barber Motorsports. The campsite was long enough for a pull through including the tow-dolly. Gravel and some grass. Some broken concrete "patios" WiFi was adequate. TV reception limited. Did not use any facilities. Rules were quite detailed and a big turn-off, as one did not feel that they could relax for fear of breaking a rule! Be sure to call for directions. Mapquest did not recognize County Road 33, and neither did Garmen. Keep windows closed and something running inside to drown out the train horn at 2:30 am...that sounded like it was coming right through the campground! The person I spoke with on the phone was very accomodating and gave good directions. Not fancy, but worked fine for us.

Immaculate grounds. Indoor pool, looked awesome. Easy reservation, with assigned site, great for late arrival. Easy access to the highway. Nice family restaurant adjacent, with huge parking lot. Large gravel drive-thru's No Problems! Will be back on next trip to the area.

Hard to find, as it is way out in the country. Very quiet. Small campground. Does have a few camping cabins and a 2 that have bathrooms. Has a playground and a pool. Has satellite tv hook-ups at each site, now. Offers a few pull-thru's and has tent sites. Has a nice small dog-park. Has a small supply store. There is free wi-fi.

Membership Park that does sell to the public, now. Difficult to select a site. Have to drive around this huge park in rig hoping to choose a site you like, then somehow claim it before someone else does. Limited 50 amp with extra fee. Scheduled activities including Bingo. Two swimming pools. Some campsite areas are remote and too small for most rigs. Some seasonal campsites in the D section are not well maintained by the campers. Does have a nice dog park, quite a hike from the campsites. For some reason, they permit RV dealer to sell RV's there. LP is only available at very limited times, so you would have to unhook and break camp to go up to get LP near the entrance. Garbage disposal is unreal. You must walk or drive all the way to the front of the campground to dispose of all waste. No dumpsters or garbage cans anywhere in the campground. (So, when you walk your dog, you have a long way to go to dispose of their waste!) How about some pet waste stations, or dumpsters at the shower houses? Has a little snack bar. Not great. Has a small supply store that sells wine and beer. Has free WiFi inside the building but very limited WiFi at campsites that requires a fee.

Nice location hidden from the highway, a short drive to town and the beach. Grocery and gasoline not far. Did not have laundromat, but it was under construction when we were there. WiFi is limited and there is a fee. Has a very tiny little amount of supplies for sale. There is a "bar" that sometimes has entertainment. There is a fenced dog park. Not well maintained, so watch your step. Some people live here full-time it appears. Some sites are configured in such a way that campers face each other. Made advance reservations, but they did not honor the price I was quoted and raised our rates, too late for us to make other arrangements.

Very large park. There are a variety of sites. Many of them are large and spacious, some are a little tight. Some are very remote and away from all the activity and some are within the lights of the activity center that includes two pools, miniature golf, tennis courts, etc. There is a fenced dog park that is nice to have, but deep sand. The trash has to be carried and/or driven all the way to the activity area. There are no dumpsters throughout the park. There were traffic jams sometimes at the central dumpster (that requires a combination when it is not broken) The onsite registration process is difficult. There is a map to choose your site that has magnets on it. It does not always reflect accurately which sites are actually vacant. We arrived at our site to find someone else had also been assigned the site. You cannot wait inside the registration lobby for your turn...they send you outside...even in the rain! There are several rules posted that threaten large monetary fines for violating rules such as not picking up after your dog, or leaving things outside the dumpster, or even hanging laundry at your campsite. We will return and there are many sites that are very spacious.

There are a lot of permanent residence here and a bar. We saw no problems or heard anything from the bar, as it seemed to also act as an activity center. After hours registration was confusing as the map is so small and there are no forms to fill out. We just parked and paid the next morning which did not seem to be a problem. We requested that we move to a site with cable and that was easily done. We stayed just two nights but plan to return for a week. Although it seems to be on a busy road, we were not bothered by any noise. The Tengo internet Wi-Fi signal seems to be only available at the activity signal and the office. There is a fee for Tengonet. The front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. There is a fenced dog park.
