Hickory Shores "Resort" -- definitely need to remove the last part of the campground name. This park is a far from being a "Resort" in any context of the word -- bluntly, this "place" is a dump!! We were in the parking lot (by choice) as there was a 50 AMP connection -- one of the few in the "place". The Host was extremely helpful and apologized for the condition of the "place" -- owner appears reluctant to invest in updating all the known issues/deficiencies. We last stayed here in the early '90s and it's not been updated/maintained for years. Mostly folks living here are on a yearly basis -- projects a neglected "trailer park" appearance. We camped at Hickory Shores Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground sites were very small. I have a 31 foot motorhome, we could not put up our awning due to a tree in the way. My slideout was about 1 to 2 inches from another tree on other side. The water & electric hook up was on other side of camper so we had to get out a garden hose for water. They had a very nice pool. The office/store closed by 3pm most time sooner than that. There was a pond with no fish in it one of the permanents said he there was fish in there but he had not seen anyone pull any out in a long time. Carlyle lake is near by its a huge man made lake looks like a smaller lake Michigan. There are lots of water things to do there. The campground was loud at night because cars and trucks. All in all this was a no thrills campground I would not drive out of my way to stay here. Lake Carlyle cool, Hickory shores resort not cool. We will not be going back. We camped at Hickory Shores Resort in a Motorhome.

Very pretty camp with lots of shade trees. The big draw back is it's distance from main highways. Park needs some restoration. They did have WiFi but the modem broke and they did not repair or replace it. I was directed to a site which was a nice choice but narrow on a winding road. The manager did not follow me or show me the site or help with my backing up. I was traveling alone so had to get in and out of the truck to check distances and obstructions. They need a lesson in park management. I just stayed over night and left the next day instead of staying longer. Park was empty except for two of us. Getting out of the site next day was fun due to the close confines and 360 degree tight turn to exit the area. We camped at Hickory Shores Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Lovely park with lots of amenities. Swimming Pool, putt putt gold, tennis, basketball courts, horseshoes, shuffleboard, fishing, hicking, biking, and many more. Lots of room on each site with fire ring and picnic table. Laundry facilities, clean bath houses, special events, restraurant and a good clean family atmosphere. We camped at Hickory Shores Resort in a camper.
