Apr 2014 - $37.00
Nice long pull-through sites that are gravel next to cement pad. Friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Restrooms and showers were long walk. They were being renovated. Too far from the W sites. Feels safe. Pleasant campground. - Snooker2

If you ever find yourself even considering stopping here, pull to the side of the road and slap yourself as hard as you can. When you can see straight again, carefully reenter traffic and run, run like the wind. This is beyond a doubt the worst campground (I use the word campground for lack of a better word) that I have ever stayed at. Yes, they say they have 60 sites, I counted about eight that were not used for full timers. Most of these were water/electric situated in the middle of a field. Access for even medium sized rigs is iffy. We scraped several branches coming in with our 30 foot Class C. Average site width is about 12 feet, (I am being generous here), not enough if you have slide outs. The web site states the grounds have been restored to the same way they were 20 years ago. I think they mean they have done nothing to the place in 20 years. Avoid this place like the plague. - axtoncampers

Something has happened to this campground. Office had bags of stuff all over the floor.
We went to our site and phoned back asking about air tv, which is non existent. At the same time, we reported four bags of garbage in our fire pit that we didn't want to get blamed for. Said oh sorry, we will pick it up. Was still there the next morning.
No map of facilities was given.
Only good thing was the Internet was was satisfactory. Very nice picnic tables.
Feels like this place is on a slippery slide in my humble opinion. - Tworetired

Nice long pull-thru spaces in the open for big rigs, and plenty of wooded back--ins for those looking for shade. Campground has a lake, playground, dog run, and well stocked store. Friendly front desk. - User3710

This park is near the interstate with easy access via a mile or so of paved, but narrow, road that parallels the freeway. Considering its proximity to the highway, there is not a lot of noise. The first thing we noticed was all the green space, acres of grass, great place to run the dog. They only have a few pull-through transient sites, but when we were there during midweek, there was only one other coach. The sites are very large with a gravel/grass parking area. They were close to being level. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but almost all the RVs were in good condition and they didn't detract from the park. The park is old and this was shown in the utilities. The site we were assigned had a circuit breaker box that was just hanging from the end of plastic conduit for lack of a screw to affix it to the backing post. The threads on both water faucets were defective and we had to connect to water in an adjacent site. The ownership of the park changed recently and hopefully these problems will be repaired soon. The park has a lot of potential for one-night stays. There is no Wi-Fi and marginal service with Verizon. - ghatfield

I am the same reviewer who left the September, 2011 review. We stayed at Happy Acres over the Labor Day weekend 2012 (along with a couple of other times this past season). Happy to report that everything is as ship-shape as set forth in last year's review. This campground is under new ownership and the only thing different that we noticed is that the seasonal campers seem to be a LOT happier and welcoming to us "transients" (weekenders). We'd be sitting by our fire and they'd drive by on their golf carts just waving and smiling, yelling "hello," etc. This in sharp contrast to many other campgrounds where we're regarded as "outsiders." A couple of them stopped by and talked a few minutes, thanking us for spending the weekend, asking us where we were from, etc. And these are the SEASONAL CAMPERS, not the owners! The owner did indeed stop by a couple times wanting to make sure everything was OK. I don't want to overstate all of this: it wasn't like we were being bothered every few minutes. People were just very friendly without being overbearing. It was like they were genuinely concerned about the reputation of their campground. All of the transient sites, including a water/electric grass site section for groups were full and everyone seemed to be having a good time with the bingo, hayrides, etc. The pool is well maintained and spotless with lots of tables and chairs. Another pleasant trip to Happy Acres. - gomershad

Generally nice campground in a State Park with lots of family-oriented amenities and activities. Roads are paved. The gravel sites range from open and sunny to shaded with good privacy, and were mostly level. Note that not all loops have electric hookups, so pay attention when choosing your site. Only one modern bathhouse was open this early in the season. The restroom facilities were as clean as could be expected given their age, but the showers were rather grim with lukewarm water at best. The shower curtain appeared to be from last season, which is odd, as you would expect that to be one of the first things they would replace when preparing for the new year. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant, restful stay for one night. - A Frame

We were reserved in the 100 loop - (Site 111). The restrooms in this loop were sketchy. When we got to our site, we were only able to pull into our site by using the site across from us. Once we got into it, we discovered that the only electricity available was at either of the neighboring sites. Our cord needed to be three times longer, so we were in trouble, as the temperature was going to get down to 39 degrees that night. We left our site and went up to the check in. They sent up a DNR guy to help us. Meanwhile, the people in the site across from us arrived and had to use our site to pull in. The DNR saw all our problems and very nicely put us into the 500 loop. The 500 loop is flat and easy to get into and out of. The bathroom is clean and nice. The 100 loop was much more interesting and rustic, but we were just as happy to switch. All of the DNR people we spoke to were the nicest people. BUT there is no hot water in the showers. It would be better to install pay showers and get hot water. - User2011

We stayed in the 500 loop again. Fewer sites in this small loop so the restrooms stay cleaner. There was a NO hot water Saturday. But otherwise a great trip. We enjoyed the bike trail and nature center. - The Flying Dutchman
