This campground is absolutely disgusting. It may seem like a good value but you are in for a nasty experience if you go here.
We rented a cabin which looked like it would be fine. When we arrived and opened up the cabin we were greeted by the smell of must and body odor. The mattresses smelled of old urine. There was dirt and grime all over the place, and graffiti on the table. The cabins are situated close enough to the highway that all you hear the entire time you are there is the sound of trucks barrelling down the freeway. The only thing that distracted from the noise were the too-close neighbors blaring music throughout the night (how about a quiet hours policy? apparently not here!)
This place will try to rip you off at every opportunity. They have an additional charge for gate access. They charge for showers. They charge for firewood they have obviously picked up from left over camping wood that has obvious burn marks on it (and may even be distributing illegal and/or invasive firewood, who knows where that wood came from?). They will try and charge you for an entire additional half-day (over $30) for staying over at their pool for just 30 minutes, even though it was rained out for the entire trip except the first day. If you make the unfortunate decision of going here, you should be on your guard and be extra careful.
By far the most exciting part about this place before we arrived was the pool. Turns out it is just as nasty as the rest of the place. The pool has a noticeable odor coming off of it. The reason, I think, is obvious. In their penny-pinching wisdom they have decided to charge for showers. Guess what that means? Probably all of the sweaty, filthy campers are just jumping in the pool to clean off instead of paying for a shower. Essentially, the pool is a giant dirty bath for the entire campground. They apparently try and make up for this by dumping chemicals in that are extremely irritating to the eyes. - leroyjones

Thought it was a great stay. It was really quiet and clean. Had a lot of kid activites going on as well. Would stay here anytime! - CAmpingNH

We reserved 2 sites side by side, one of our friends canceled, so we called and re booked the other site in the next couple of days, well before we left our friends called to see if they could leave a day earlier, they said they didn't even see the 2 sites.They only saw the one site reserved. They put us on a different site than what we originally wanted, and put our friends far away from us. The owner blamed it on his daughter and was a real jerk about the whole situation. We were down at the campground store and overheard another conversation with the owner with another couple who had the same problem with their site, and again, it was the daughter who took the reservation. This place has an old playground with old swings and hasn't been updated in a very long time, only riverfront sites are seasonal, there are NO activities for the kids to do. Only some video games which most of them are shut off during the day. The sites are decent, but we will never be going back again. - jackiechevy3
