We were going to stay here and ended up not due to the creepiness of it. The beautiful pines that cover this campground are only beautiful on the road in. Once you get inside, they are all half dead and oozing sap on everyone's tents/campers. The seasonal campsites are cluttered with so many lawn ornaments they look like an episode of Hoarders! Creepy place. We camped at Pine View Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Unbelievable. Most terrible camping experience we've ever had. The owners were rude and belligerent. Do not come here and do not bring your children. The owners screamed and yelled at us and my children, threatening to throw us out of the campground for singing children songs on the hay ride. My 5 and 7 year old were in total fear...screaming, crying. I argued with the owner after we were threatened and accused of using profanity...something we never did, nor did anyone else on the hay ride. I cannot explain their behavior, but they did call the sheriff to have us thrown out. This is a place for regulars...yearly and seasonal guests. I suggest if you consider coming for a weekend stay, that you do not. You will be an outsider and they will throw you out for any reason they wish, truthful or not. The bathrooms and showers were disgusting. I felt that my family was in danger staying there. Signs all over the grounds read "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone". The playground sign reads "if you are older than 6 years old, and caught playing here, you will loose your playground privileges" How can they even prove age? Do they ask for the child's drivers license? The pond is considered "great for swimming". I wouldn't let my kids put one toe in that disgusting water. We camped at Pine View Campgrounds in a Tent.

This campground has no business letting "outsiders" in. This establishment only caters to the seasonal camper. Rules of the campground are not clearly posted anywhere. There did not seem to be any organized activities. There were no tents there at all when we camped. Staff was rude and refused our attendance on their "hayride". The only bath house was lacking attention and extremely dirty. Doors falling off of hinges and cobwebs everywhere. The swimming hole looked like a mucky swamp infested with bacteria. Fishing pond was also lacking attention. Not much in way of a store with camping supplies. Sites were tight for the more modern campers with slides. Only nice feature was the beautiful pine trees. I would not camp here again. We camped at Pine View Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

If you like quiet, this seems to be the place. The sites are shaded by tall pines. Some sites are a little tight. We have camped here three times now and it has never been crowded. They have a great park for little and big kids. They do have a swimming "hole" and a fishing pond. This park would be perfect if it had a pool. We camped here in '04, '05, and '06. We plan on coming back again. We camped at Pine View Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
