There are so many reasons for there being numerous vacancies while other campgrounds are full but the # 1 reason would be the owners. They can’t separate business from their personal lives. They set rules and regulations and they exempt themselves and campground employees. Billing is always an issue with them over charging and refusing to remove charges. They say they are always open to discuss problems then walk away, hang up on you or not answer door when you try. They think they can tell those using the campground what they can talk about, who they can talk to, who they can do things for or help, who they can hang out with, right down to what they can even think. This creates a dictatorship like atmosphere with people being afraid to breathe. They evict people, publish their names and warn people that they hope others learn from this. They think they can speak to campers rudely even cussing and swearing and yelling at them in front of others and even at your guests. There is such an undercurrent of fear and unrest that I could not feel comfortable or relax when I was there. The straw that broke the camel’s back was on July 11, 2013, Consumers pulled all main electrical meters in the campground. Owners brought in generators and informed all (except a select few) they could not run air conditioners, making it so many could not use their campers due to health issues or high uncomfortable temps. On the 1st morning of generator power, one generator ran out of gas. Thus single phasing power to several campers doing extensive damage, and to this day they have never admitted responsibility. The outage lasted for a good part of 2 months of the summer. Sad to see what was a really lovely campground destroyed by the owners. You can be a good guy one moment and a bad guy the next depending on which way the owner’s mood is swinging and that’s a constant pendulum. The injustices I witnessed and was put through myself by the owners is unbelievable. It sickened me to see the owners bullying people. I even witnessed their child telling other children that if they didn’t do as they said,they’d have them kicked out. I could go on and on, but will end now with hopes that this will save many others from going through the nightmare we were put through. We did our time, sorry to say. We camped at Genesee Otter Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Terrible campground. Nothing was the same as what they advertised on the web site. Wi-Fi was turned off; the lakefront site was on a swamp/marsh; the activities were cancelled at the last minute because there were no 'volunteers' to do them (they rely on seasonals to organize their activities); and the site we booked (and paid for in advance) was not reserved for us. Phone calls not returned. Low voltage power through July/August (ran on generators). The list goes on. Beautiful property but terrible management. We camped at Genesee Otter Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Most are seasonal sites. Golf carts were everywhere. Some neighbors were nice but felt out of place there. They had really nice fireworks for the 4th. They seem family friendly if you are one of the seasonal people. Sites are really close together. Probably wouldn't stay there again but it served its purpose for us. We camped at Genesee Otter Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.
