Trees are low-hanging, but negotiable. Nice campground, but overpriced for an overnite... but...it is the only campground around. The office doesn't often answer their phone; left two messages but never got a return call. The office also was reluctant to offer any assistance to problems I was having after we got there. Also, closed the office before closing time. We probably would try to avoid coming here again. We camped at Pine Lakes Camping & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

Great campground, but holiday activities were not planned very well. It is a Jellystone park now and I was disappointed to find the new pool, just opened, was closed during certain hours over the holiday weekend for adult swim only. As a matter of fact, people with children were being turned away from the pool during these times even if the pool was completely empty. The alternative was the swimming area at the lake, which was nice, but one can only take so much lake water. Much of the staff didn't seem very friendly. We approached several staff during our stay for different reasons, and more often than not they seemed annoyed by our questions. With that said, the owner was awsome. She seemed to want to go out of her way to make sure her guests were happy. We will be back, but not during a holiday or themed weekend due to poor activity planning. Also, be advised you will pay 25 cents for every 6 minutes in the showers if you use the public bath house. I suggest the upper bathhouse over the lower, as the upper bathhouse has larger showers and the facilities are cleaner. We camped at Pine Lakes Camping & Fishing Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here Sun-Tues. It rained much of our visit, so the hiking paths were not useable. Boat rental was nice and 1/2 price during the weekdays. Full-hookup sites were narrow, not pull-throughs, gravel filled, (therefore muddy) and not level. Wi-Fi was only available at the lower campgrounds (#100-200), but those sites were swampy from the rain and not near the lake, beach or playground area. The bathhouse was clean: showers cost 25 cents for 6 minutes! Would visit again to see if we had a better impression when its not raining and muddy.

An older park, but nice with some full timers. Sites with full hookup are away from lake and small. We stayed four nights in 25' motorhome. The owners very helpful and friendly. The owners are still making improvements, but park in very good condition. Were there on weekend with Halloween activities for kids. The campground owners had a very good activity listing with fun for all. We will definitely return. We camped at Pine Lakes Camping & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

We made reservation here for three nights one month before the 4th of July for that weekend and were lucky to get it as we knew that it would be hard to get a campsite for the 4th. We were told at that time that their cancellation policy was NOT TO GIVE REFUNDS but to give campground credits to come back to the park. There were two sites left, 120 & 230. Checked reviews, and they were great. We ask for a level site with full hook ups. When we showed up the sites weren't level sites, but were close together and interior roads were in rough shape. Because of rain the park was flooded and just back to almost normal. The sites we saw on the lower level were in rough shape. We will never go back here. A big loss for us.

Visited park in 40' motorhome & rated it down as it was not big rig friendly. Roads were
narrow and trees needed trimming. There was even a power line in the campground that was only about 10' high. Sites were gravel & dirt that turned to
mud in rain. Very difficult to maneuver a big rig & stay on paved roads. Park was clean & had some nice sites but they only have 30 amp service. The 50
amp sites were away from the lake & had no sewer. Cable tv was limited. We felt $26 was overpriced. Park had a sandy beach for swimming, small boat
rentals and playgrounds for kids. Camp catered to the fisherman We camped at Pine Lakes Camping & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.
