We chose this campground because it belongs to Passport America, so we only paid $13 per night plus tax. For us price is more important that amenities. But we liked this place because it was out of the way (about 5 miles from the interstate) and because it was so peaceful, though we did stay here during the week. Would have been nice to have a laundry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I read the reviews, but the newest was three years old and I figured the campground would have taken the comments seriously; they didn't. For a "family friendly" campground I found some of the other campers were pretty loud and foul-mouthed, especially one unit camped right next to the pool. The dad was yelling four letter words at his kids. They have a pond and an algae covered lagoon; so there were quite a few mosquitoes. I asked for a site with water and electric, and fairly close to the bathrooms (health problem). I got put in between two permanently parked RV's; on a site that had a recent beer party if the beer bottle caps all over the ground were any hint. We had to clean these up so no one would get cut. Plus, the whole site smelled of vomit; someone apparently couldn't handle their beer. The picnic table was a splinter-generating nightmare, with warped seats and top. We put our tent near the edge of a cornfield as far from the smell as possible but even then it wasn't far enough away. The bathrooms had two, locker-room style showers for each gender; the shower curtains didn't even cover the doorways. The shower stalls were filthy, mildewed and stank. The toilets (3 in each bathroom) had overflowed at some point, the water was still on the floor (it was there when we arrived, and still there the morning we left). There was only one sink for the bathroom, with faucets you had to hold to keep them on. "Laundry" consisted of one washer and one dryer in a dark shed. I didn't even go in. Nothing cold was sold in the store; their coolers were torn apart and in pieces. There weren't many foodstuffs available at all, I was glad we stocked up before we arrived (this place is in the boonies, the nearest store is several miles away). I noticed RV supplies were in short supply too, but they had plenty of campground t-shirts and sweatshirts. They did have a Snack Shop open our last night but my son had to wait 40 minutes for his "personal" 4-slice pizza. The only thing going for it was the staff seemed friendly enough. One lady went out of her way to be welcoming; but she was older and was probably taught manners early in life. We won't stay here again. We camped here in a Tent.
Where to begin, this was actually our second trip to Funny Farm and again it was a horrible experience. Upon arrival the front desk personnel were unfriendly and did not seem like they wanted to help the customer. When the check-in was completed, I was not offered a map to my site until I asked; and again it seemed like I was putting the lady out. My site was surrounded by seasonal campers who's rigs were in disrepair and had their cars parked all over the place. My site was supposed to be a 30 amp site. The electrical box that supplied my site had 2 30 amp circuits and they were both taken; I had to stretch 2 extension cords over and hook up to another sites electrical. Now, that leads me to one of the big issues I have ranked this this a "1". We lost power at least every 30 minutes for the first two days. Finally on the second day the owner advised us that he thinks there is a bad breaker and that it will be replaced "tonight". The breaker was indeed replaced however it was not replaced until the next day. And the power continued to go out even after the circuit breaker was replaced. We lost water on Saturday morning and again on Sunday morning. The entire campground was without water for 30 minutes each day. There seemed to be 1 bath house to accommodate at least 100 sites and there was now pathway to the outhouse. The campers around us used our site as a thoroughfare. The dump station is is set up too narrow for some trailers. The swimming pool needed to be cleaned or shocked; the water was grey. I wouldn't put a toe in the swimming pond. To the defense of the campground, the grass was nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a park we'd been to in the past; but is now run by different family members. We planned a long weekend at this park and were so relieved to leave after just one night. The cost for our family of 6 was 31.00 per night, most of the the sites were horribly uneven and the electric service is substandard. We were told the electric at our site couldn't handle the use of a/c. The playground was dangerous; very old and falling apart. The swings weren't even usable, they consisted of tangled seats and old rusty chains hanging down. The "swimming pond" was overrun with "green", and our children smelled awful after attempting to swim in the little area that wasn't green. Let's not forget the flies. The flies alone were enough to make you want to leave. We resorted to purchasing some of those nasty fly strips, just to be rid of them within the trailer itself and even the purchase of yard guard didn't help outside. The place is truly horrible. Fortunately, due to error on their part in our reservation .. they did refund our money for the one night we had to bear there. We moved on to Harrison Lake State Park less than 30 miles away; where there were no flies, level sites, clean facilities and an enjoyable weekend awaiting us after all! We camped here in a camper.
I have stayed at a number of parks and this is the worst one ever. Check-in area was a cancer area with all the smoke. Restrooms were filthy. The whole park was a mess. I will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here with a large group over Labor Day weekend. This park could use a lot of TLC. The pool was cleaned while we were here but still not real clean. We would not come here again. If it had not been a group we would not have come in the first place. The rest rooms had mold on the walls when the first ones arrived. Not good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for one night in a self-contained motor home so we can't review many items. The park definitely caters to permanent or seasonal residents but there were quite a few pull through spaces available. The front desk personnel were very nice. We were given a great spot where our Direct TV worked and also had a decent Verizon mifi signal. The spot was pretty level also. It was very quiet at night. This campsite was not far off of I-80 and we drove to the supermarket in Pioneer which was about 3 miles away. Our rate reflects a Passport America discount. We would definitely camp here again when driving by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Glad we were here only overnight. Park not full. Park over 50% seasonal, and it appeared that each seasonal person was responsible for their own site maintenance (e.g. mowing the grass), so there was great variation in the level of maintenance provided. Very shabby--needs a lot of basic maintenance--paint and building repairs. Sites were level. Park was quiet, except for all the golf carts running around. The ponds were very low--swampy. The registration desk/store was like an old, well-used ashtray--the people working were smokers. It was OK for a quick overnight, but I wouldn't plan on staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
