Membership resort - stayed under ROD affiliation. Main roads paved, gravel site roads with long and wide, level gravel sites. Many of the sites have large trees and half with no trees for satellite signal. Grass between sites and large grass areas. Large heated pool, separate sauna and enclosed spa. New kids' playground. Nice lake with boat rentals. Lots of activities on weekends. Park well maintained. Usable WiFi signal at sites. 1 mile to large stores. Staff friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there again. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

We are long-time members of this resort. The overall rating reflects our experience over the 15+ years we have been members. 'Value' is rated satisfactory for the following reasons: 1-The location and proximity to shopping and work allows year-round use. 2-The property is beautiful, containing a good fishing lake, hiking trails, and a separation from the surrounding urban areas. 3-The resort is surrounded by an upscale 27-hole golf course that is buffered from the campground and lake by trees and natural terrain. 'Service' is rated terrible for the following reasons: 1-If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints that reflect negatively on the resort, your treatment by the resort management and staff may become adversarial. 2-The resort management is very legalistic. The default response to any incident or misfortune is the "member bears all responsibility". For instance, if a tree limb falls on your camper, the resort bears no responsibility. If the resort damages your camper while moving it to a site, the resort is not responsible. We've rated 'Cleanliness' as bad for these reasons: 1-The cleaning schedules for the facilities are set up for the convenience of the staff, not for the members. For instance, the main bathrooms/showers are cleaned during the busiest times in the morning when most members want to get ready for the day. 2-Even after 'cleaning', the results are substandard. As mentioned in other reviews, the sites are not level and do not drain properly. Some sites have been improved recently with crushed stone, but many others remain unimproved. The spring thaw is very messy! When our membership becomes due again, we will have to decide on whether the advantages outweigh the negatives. We have learned to keep a low profile and stay away from management and certain staff members. This privately-owned resort regularly bars members from using the campground as a tool to resolve disputes. Few people have the resources for legal battles. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Kept very clean, there are always rangers available for any questions you may have, free water park, free boats, free kayaks , brand new hot tub. Pool was clean and pleasant. Sauna was nice as well . We enjoyed a hike around the lake.... (don't forget the skeeter spray ). Small but nice general store. We like that we don't need a reservation. We will enjoy and get a lot of use out of our 5 year membership! The only bad thing is there seems to be a difference of past memberships and new ones, they need to merge and let past members aware of the changes. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Great park! We did the membership tour and our camping was free for three nights. Lots of activities for the family. This is a large park and security seemed pretty good. Very friendly and helpful staff. Sites were large and shady. Using sewer cost extra and though Wi-Fi has a strong signal through out the park, you have to pay extra to use it. We stayed here 3 nights. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The sites aren't level, soft (bring some wood)and flood in the rain. Lots of little pine trees, SAP! Had to patch my roof after catching tree branches. The lake is down. Hard to launch my boat. Lots of weeds. The buildings are old. Extra charges for kids activities, waterpark, Wi-Fi and there is a minimum charge on credit cards so bring cash. After a disappointing experience at the Bellringer I just eat in town. Walmart and other stores in town. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice Park, well laid out and very well managed. Restrooms and showers were clean. A lot of things for us and the kids to do. We will definitely return. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Motorhome.

We were non-members in this membership park, so our rate was pricey. This seems like a place that was once very pretty, but these days is feeling like it’s past its prime. Sites are unlevel and it can be a stretch to reach power and water hookups. Trees definitely need trimming. With some work, this could be a real gem. But, at this price, we likely will not return. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Motorhome.

Large membership campground. Older facility but well kept. Expect to see more than the usual number of kids...family oriented. $3/night charge for 50 amp for ROD (Resorts pf Distinction) members. Some sites require long hoses/cables due to location of hookups. Large lake, nice nature trail around lake. Good size sites on grass. We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a membership campground and is affiliated with Resorts of Distinction. There are plenty of activities for the kids all summer long. They have both lake and pool swimming available along with an indoor hot tub for the adults. There is a boat launch and a marina where you can rent paddle boats, rowboats, kayaks and sailboats. The lake has an electric motors only policy. The bathrooms are kept very clean. There are two playgrounds for the children, both are adequate but could use some updating. There are also cabins available for rent in addition to the campground. A nice trail surronds the lake and meanders through the adjacent golf course. Overall a nice place to camp! We camped at Waldenwoods Family Recreation Resort in a Travel Trailer.
