September 2014
We stop by here every September on our way through. We often stay for two nights most places just to decompress before traveling again. There isn't much going on at this campground but the location has always been convenient for us. The rate for a 50 A site had been $40. We were prepared to pay for two nights until they told us that would be $110. The lady at the desk said they are under new management and the new owners raised the rates. I understand the cost of things goes up over time but $40 for one night was already too high for what this campground offers. This new owner is going to need to rebuild this place from the ground up to justify $55 a night. We stayed for one night only because we were already there and mentally I was done driving for the day. We would not pay that price for a second night and we will not be back unless that new owner reconsiders their ridiculous new pricing scheme. Now to detail the haves and have nots. I checked it as family friendly because over the years we have seen families with children. The only thing close to a playground are a few old pieces left over from what must have been a jellystone park many years ago. They did recently add cable TV. They only have a even dozen channels and no channel guide. This alone is not worth any extra money let alone the $15 per night increase. Some of the other sites throughout are closer to level but the three 50 A sites up front by the office pull in level but the front of the site falls off pretty good. This presented no difficulty to us in a motorhome but I mention it for those with fifth wheels as I have seen people hitching up at weird uphill angles. They do have a number of tent sites but these are across a public street from the bathhouse. There have been mentions of road noise in other reviews but we did not have any problem. If you stay closer to the office you should not hear the road noise from the interstate. Overall it is a pretty basic place but it always suited our purposes until they raised the price so high. Hopefully they will reevaluate before they lose so much business they end up closing the place. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Staff friendly and efficient. Sites level but not very wide. The biggest problem was the traffic noise since there was an interstate highway next to the campground so not very peaceful. Easy access in and out. Would stay here again but pick a site closer to the office and further from the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Old fixtures, but clean bath house. Low water pressure but very good shower heads. Wi-fi was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
