We planned to stay a few nights but left after one. Honestly, we would have left shortly after arrival but were too tired to look elsewhere. We were given a "pull through" site that was to accommodate our 40' coach and toad. It was 90 degrees off a narrow road and so we had to disconnect the toad in order to maneuver into it. Once there the leveling jacks punched through the thin layer of gravel and buried themselves into the soil. A small "swamp" lay across the site as well which looked to be the result of leaks in either the sewer or water system. As the site sloped too much we tried one across the road that was more level. No luck. There too the jacks went straight into the soil. Even after placing plywood under them. That folded up and went into the soil along with the jacks. Management finally brought us some 2x lumber and cement blocks which in combination solved the problem. Noise from barking dogs and speeding (yes speeding) cars and golf carts running past us until 11 pm dropped our evaluation of this place even further. At times the noise was so loud it drowned out the television (even with the windows all closed). We walked though nearly all of the park that evening and took in the sights. There were no other pedestrians. Everyone drove around on golf carts. None of the roadways are paved and the little remaining gravel is seriously pock-marked with deep pits and ruts. Made me wonder how folks would feel comfortable speeding on it but I could never answer that one. Bottom line is this park is well past its prime. Whoever owns it has got to be sucking the income and using it for other things. There is just too much "deferred maintenance" showing compared to the high number of guests (nearly all permanent homes) who must provide a positive cash flow. We will stay in a truck stop before we stay in this place again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice setting with a beautiful lake and walking path, but it needs to be maintained better! The bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities are so-so: especially the laundry facilities. They were never clean during our 2 month stay and pretty gross to use. The campsites are never cleaned after campers depart. I even spent time picking up litter after a storm: just because I didn't want to look at the mess! There's a restaurant/sports bar on site, but it has a very limited menu. Gravel roads and lots are often muddy after rain. We had a terrible time getting level: more so than anywhere else in 9 years of camping. Staff is pretty much hands off and it's a family run business. The best part about this park if their annual Halloween Party and haunted hayride. Well done and lots of fun. Maybe it's better in the summer, but we needed a short term (2 month) place to stay near Columbus and this was the most convenient spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground was well maintained, with pre-Memorial Day work still under way. There was a fairly steady procession of golf carts and other maintenance machines on the roadways while we were there. But they were not objectionably noisy and stopped before dinner time. Otherwise, this was a very quiet location, with no highway, train, or other noises to interrupt our sleep. The Wi-Fi here was one of the fastest connections we have ever experienced on the road! Verizon voice and data signals were strong as well. We would return here for an even longer stay than an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
