Staff was very helpful and nice. (as always). Site was spacious and clean. Had plenty of activities to do for adults and children. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring everything you need when you come. There are no stores near by.

Once again promise service not available the on line reservation system not available as the manager said would be in operation May 1.

Will be interested to see if the septic revamp starts June 1. Septic hookups few, honey wagon 3X/weeks at a fee. Manager says too expensive to operate more often

Most sites are level but manager states can't level those which are not due to drainage, water still runs down hill. They are wide and easy to get into, even the back-ins. Roads are dirt and have pot holes but are wide and easy to navigate.

No cable. Satellite spotty due to many trees.

Have been a member for 6 years and have seen unneeded improvement and heard a lot of promises. Hard to get site even as a member. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Resorts of Distinction membership. Beware of the cons when going to this campground. In 15 years of camping, we have never had such a long list of rules (72). We found multiple staff members rude and unhelpful. We were told our site was a full hook up, and found out the site did not have sewer. The campground map shows most sites are full hook-up (although they are not). They have very few full hook-up sites. Their solution is a “honey wagon” that will come around a couple of times a week—for an additional charge. We called ahead to make sure they had a pool. We were told they did. When we got to campground we now were told, the pool was closed for work—not sure when it will open. They are less than honest, even when asked direct questions. Quiet hours start at 11pm, but organized activities cause it to be loud much later. Campground handles big rigs, but some sites are small and there are tight turns throughout, so it would be wise to scout the site before driving your RV through the campground. Sites are level and most have trees—great for shade. Very poor satellite and internet reception. Verizon cell coverage was spotty. The positives: laundry room was clean and air conditioned, shower and bathrooms were clean and trees are pretty and offer shade. We do not plan to return. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Fifth Wheel.

Like a previous reviewer stated, you will either love this place or hate it. We loved the remoteness of the place; we did NOT like the fact that they billed it as full hookups- electric, water, sewer- and when we got to the site found all the sewers in the area capped off. I asked for another site but was told that they had none available even though there was a row that would accommodate us with sewers. The price reflects C2C rate. AT&T, water pressure, and 50 amp were all good. I was surprised that my dome satellite got through the trees. Stayed here in a 40 footer which created some angst as the roads are a little narrow and the corners kind of sharp. We would return. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.

This is a campground that you will either love or hate mainly because of the location I think. You are a good 20 minutes from the closest big town with a grocery store, gas station, etc. So if, you like to be out in the country this is your place. The campground has potiential to be a really great place but needs a little work like the spot I was in was all sandy. There said they are working on making more spots with chat gravel and that would be a good improvement. There is plenty to do for a family with mini golf, pool, lake, horseshoes, basketball court, and acres to explore. My family and another was invited to stay for free if we would take a two hour tour for their timeshare program. We did the tour and just decided it wasn't right for us. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.

Stayed at the CG for two days with the free tour. Really nice, out-of-the-way CG. Staff became rude and crud when we declined to buy a time share. Will not return! We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.

This is one great campground...for families and 'empty-nesters' as well. There are planned activities, level (wheel-chair accessible) sites, well-maintained restrooms, showers and laundry, pull-throughs, and cabin accommodations. This is a popular campground any time of the year, particularly for Halloween when campers and RVers go all out decorating for the holiday. There are also some great, small community festivals in the area throughout the Fall. Staff is very friendly and helpful; there is Bingo on Friday nights and live music groups on Saturday evening. The only drawback is the distance to town (Aberdeen) if you need supplies that may not be carried by the camp store. Memberships are available to the public but no 'permanent' set ups are allowed. Flies and gnats can be bothersome at certain times of the year so having a screen-room for day-time use is helpful. We will return. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on Coast-to-Coast points. Paved interior roads, but a confusing layout and no security, can put you into a difficult "back out" hole before you find the office. Sales and marketing of spaces is a big part of this operation. Sewer service is very limited (12 out of 250?). Our space was large, level and covered with pine straw. It was set up for sewer, but the system was not yet in use. Due to the number of owner occupied sites, it was a little noisy. If you play golf, this is the place for you. We might stay here again in transit, but not for an extended stay. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Fifth Wheel.

Sycamore Lodge is our absolute favorite place to stay. We love the pine trees, and the fishing; and appreciate how clean everything's kept. It has all the amenities that you could as for; and it always has activities to involve the whole park. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

We have camped at Sycamore Lodge 3 times before this trip. When we got set up and turned on our AC after running a while it quit. After checking out the camper we tried again and the AC ran for awhile and quit again. We then got a staff member to check the electrical outlet and come to find out we only had 107 volts and that was not on the AC itself it was at a receptical. Most RV AC's are designed to run on 120 volts. We were then told that the park is at the end of the line for electricity from the power company. Needless to say our fan motor burned up and may have damaged the compressor. So if you are planning to go make sure that they have enough power so that you do not burn up your AC unit up. Also the campers next to us also had some problems with their breaker tripping. I wished that we could have been so lucky. We had no other choice, but to stay the night. But we did leave the next morning. I don't feel that the staff cared the we had burned our AC up they didn't even offer us a fan for the night and it was 91 degrees in our camper. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second stay here. Both stays were wonderful. We bought into the park after the presentation because we were so impressed with the place. It is a nice family friendly campground with two playgrounds, paddleboats, fishing, shuffleboard, minigolf, and horseshoes. My daughter loves the playground by the lake and she loves the waterfall and goldfish pond. The sites near the waterfall are rock and have cement pads. The wooded sites are sand and do not have a cement pad. Both sites were nice. We had full hookups both stays. Staff was super friendly and helped with getting us parked and setting up. One even drove around offering fresh homemade bread to campers. We already have reservations for Easter weekend. As members, we don't pay for our stay, we pay a yearly fee instead. Only downside (if this really is one) is there is not much near this place, ie: nearest anything is about 9 miles away according to GPS. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

We came here on a free pass that we received when we purchased our rig knowing that we were required to sit through a sales presentation. We had NO intention of buying, but we were soooo impressed with the CG that we did indeed buy into it. The presentation was not high pressure and we could have easily walked away, but we didn't. The park itself is beautifully landscaped, nice dog park, great lake sites and we love the lodge. It's a great place to sit in front of a fire and read or watch satellite TV and it has Wi-Fi connections. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the sites very large and well kept. We have already made reservations to spend the New Year's weekend here and were able to secure the same site we are currently in. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.

We visited this campground on our Coast to Coast membership and were very impressed with the property, staff and other campers. The large dog run is a huge selling point, and a nice way to meet other campers. Great general store and spotless bath house with individual rooms that contain a shower, toilet, dressing area and sink. We look forward to visiting again.

Since we stayed on Coast to Coast, we were not allowed "full hookups". Sewer was at the site, but was told the state had not given them permission for use yet. We stayed a week and had to have the honey wagon twice. Quite inconvenient. WiFi is ONLY at the lodge. Nice CG, but rather remote. Staff was not overly friendly. Probably would not stay here again on Coast to Coast. We camped at Sycamore Lodge in a Motorhome.
