Stayed here to explore the area. Everything was a distance from campground. There were many seasonal campers. But the campground was well managed and clean. Owners live on site. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is nice but don't rely on your reservation. Reserved a full hookup pull thru and the owner gave it away, moved us to a second site and gave that away as well. After 9 hrs on the road we pull in and get a spot on the overflow gravel lot with 30 amp and water next to the porta potties. Never again, guess you need to stay more than 1 night or be a local. Charged us $35, could have stayed at Walmart. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful spot. We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Most spots are taken by seasonal campers, but every site I looked at was well cared for and neat. Spoke with the owner and they are very dedicated in keeping the camp nice and upgrading the facilities as necessary. WiFi was excellent.

Will stay there again if we are in the area. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Thought I had reviewed after stay, but can not find. It was OK for our 45 ft MH as a one nighter, but appears geared for families. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground was exactly what was advertised and what we were seeking: Nice sites, quiet and with a great beach. The owners/staff were friendly to the point of feeling like long-lost friends, guiding each rig to their site and answering any requests on the spot. Sites were rather large and most are quite well shaded. Hookups were clean. The beach is inconveniently (and oddly) quite a ways from the main campground, so don't expect to walk there with all your gear on a hot day. Many campers drove their vehicles to the beach, crowding around the sites that are there. The min-golf course was very run down, and the owner indicated it would be re-built next year. The sites in our area had the fire ring located at the far end of the site, which we found odd. Kids and adults had a fun, relaxing time and we found ourselves wishing we'd been able to stay another day. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

This is mostly wooded beautiful setting (wooded and on a lake) and clean campground. 65 of the 110 sites are permanent (at least spring through fall) sites and many more are customers who come here frequently with their groups. The owners / staff that we met are great people and there are many activities. WiFi is just ok. TV is a couple of channels by antenna and you might have sat issues due to trees. Many of the residents have an “ownership” attitude. Some of the sites get so crowded that things like people, dogs, ATV’s, bikes, golf carts, etc., spill over onto the narrow roads. Not very welcoming to “short timers.” If you have any sort of smoke issues / allergies I would highly recommend you look elsewhere. Lots of smoky fires go all the time to some degree and the air is really, really thick after about 4pm. People bring in pickups full of wood and have storage areas on their sites. But here is a first: there is a little mailbox in the laundry room with a sign, “Honor system - $1 per load.” And we felt it is pricey at $48 / night with no Good Sam or other discounts: only mid week and weekly discount. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

Flying Goose Campground is owned and operated by a friendly farm family with a hands-on attitude. The popular campground is located on the shores of Lake Imogene, a small spring fed lake. The campground is well maintained. The interior roads are blacktopped and the pads are gravel. There are large trees throughout the campground. The positive is there is lots of shade; the downside is the trees make it very difficult to enter some of the sites. I wouldn’t consider Flying Goose big rig friendly, but there were many larger rigs camping. Many of the sites were occupied by seasonal campers. Our site was not level. The restrooms were inspected frequently. As a result, they were very clean. The voltage was low with the air conditioner running. The drinking water had a unique odor. The owners are gradually updating the water, electricity, site size, etc. The OTA television reception was good. Twenty dollars is a group rate. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty pricey when we had to pay for extra people with us. We had various kinds of insects at our campsite the entire 4 days we camped here. The first 2 days we could not even sit at the picnic table, let alone put food on it! Some sort of little black bug was the very worst! Two perks were the daily trash pickup at your site--did not have to trek to a dumpster to dispose of trash. The other one was a nice little chapel with Sunday services which we enjoyed. Would be "iffy" if we stayed here again. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

Pulled off interstate due to a storm and found this gem. Very nice pave roads. We were led to our site and given information about the local area. We were in spot 72, a 100 foot pull through, and got satellite reception. We were too far from the clubhouse for the free Wi-Fi. Just stayed overnight so didn't use any facilities but if the check-in area is any indication, the whole place is nice. We would definitely stay again.

Very nice park, mostly well kept permanent sites. Most roads are paved, sites are grass or gravel. Lots of shade, so no satellite reception. No cable system. But a very nice stop. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Motorhome.

What a find! This place is a gem. I agree with everything the past post said. Clean, Clean, Clean. The owner's were so friendly and helpful. Drove you to your site, came by later in the day to make sure everything is OK, and to chat. I can't say enough about this place. I will be back again. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Wow, what a find. Beautiful and well maintained property. Large pull-through sites with ample space between units. Excellent walking and biking. Nice looking lake, but not here long enough to enjoy it. Clean bathrooms, but coin operated shower a bit unusual. Would definitely stay here again, but would stay more than one night to fully enjoy the surroundings. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for one night, but would stay there for longer. Nice, caring staff and nicely maintained throughout. Big rig sites have little shade but are over 100' long. Roads are paved and sites are grass or gravel. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
