This is a well run park with many activities available. The main downfall for larger units are the narrow roads and steep hills. Much of this park is built on the side of a hill and the narrow roads and tight turns make for a harrowing experience. Once at our site we had a lovely, large and paved pull-thru with a beautiful view. We were in a 39ft motorhome and towing. We had just inches to spare on the turns and we would not recommend any thing larger. In fact, we would not try it again. Our other complaint was the wi-fi, which is offered through an outside vendor for a fee. We were never able to get connected and finally received our money back. For those with smaller units, this is a very nice park. Because of the turns and steep hills, we would not stay here again. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

There is no selection for my camper. It is an A-liner popup.

This park is very uphill. This means a fantastic view of the lake and surrounding hills. The flip side of this is a lot of exercise, some strenuous if you don't have some kind of transportation outside of your TV. There are of course gulf carts available for a fee.

If you don't want to cook you can go to the concession stand. Decent food reasonable prices. Loud music to go with that. Friendly staff too.

You may have noticed the comments about the tight turns. They are true, the camp provides assistance. We were guided by one of the staff who said he was one of the owners and he was very helpful.

One thing don't forget;

Silly me forgot to mention to the check in girl that we were G.S. card holders which would have reduced the cost of the campsite cost 10% This was the only thing that I would wish they might instruct their staff to ask as a small courtesy. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Tent.

As noted in other posts, great for the lake swimming, diving,
jumping and having fun for the kids. This was our second
visit, and we enjoy everything about this place.
I would not suggest going their in a motorhome over 40',
and you better be good at navigating very narrow passages.
For-purchase wifi was very good and reasonably priced.
Although we had a 50 amp site, any draw over 30 amps,
would drop the voltage below 105 and trip our master breaker.
We just managed our loads, and were OK. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

BAD experience. We entered the park and our first thought was beautiful place. We went to register and that's when the good thoughts stopped. They informed us we would have to unload our car before going up to our "PULL-THRU" spot because we couldn't fit it around the corners even though our RV was only 34 feet long towing a mini cooper on a dolly. Something that might have been mentioned when we booked our site. They didn't have a spot to pull over and unhook the car so there we were doing it in the main thoroughfare while other cars were trying to come in. Then they escorted us up to our "PULL-THRU" and made us pull up to the far side so that a tent camper could use the back portion of the site the next day. Now the hose wouldn't reach the hook-up. We let their management know this and said that the spigot was to be shared with the tent they sent someone up with an extension hose so it could reach the back of our RV. As he hands it to us, he tells us we should probably be storing water in our tanks because often on the weekends when they have a lot of people, they run out of water (LOVELY). We looked on the internet at reviews of this place and sure enough people had complained about them running out of water. Can you imagine? We then turned on our water and the pressure was almost nonexistent. We took our dogs for a short walk and there was hardly anywhere we could walk them. Not a dog friendly place at all. We started adding up the negatives about this place and decided to leave early especially because a Volley Ball tournament was scheduled on Saturday, our departure date, and the manager said we would be hard pressed to find a spot to hook the car up again because of the traffic jams foreseen. We told them about the problems and they just shrugged their shoulders and said: "Sorry." Totally not concerned we were unhappy in the slightest and wouldn't give us our money back. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

I liked this place. It is very clean and very beautiful here. There is lots to do here. They even had an awesome live band one night! Our campsite was a very large, level concrete pad, with plenty of nice grass for our dog. The campsites are up pretty steep hills which makes how your camper sits, pretty nice. Someone is in front below you, and in back above you. Makes for plenty of space and privacy.

NEGATIVES You can have a golf cart or rent one, which is fine, but idiot parents allow their children to drive these things all over, during all hours of the night, with headlights blaring at you while you are trying to sit outside and enjoy. These kids keep continuously going around in circles so it is constant! Management really needs to address this problem.

Other drawback is that the morning we were to leave, while cleaning out our black tank, we lost all water pressure for over an hour. We gave up and left. Seems to be a common problem here. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you tow vehicle can barely tow your camper, don't come here. Need power to get up the hills.

The first impression I had when I drove in was wow! When you come in there is a lake full of people. They have a zip line that goes around and through the park.
When you check in someone will take you to your site and make sure your happy.

The park is immaculate. We sent pictures to our daughter, so she can bring her family here. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground. Spectacular lake with all the toys for the kids to enjoy. Sites are tight but level, very picturesque setting on hilly terrain. All paved roads with concrete & gravel sites. Utilities all worked well. We only were there for an overnight, but would love to return and spend more time. Escort to sites, very helpful and friendly staff. We travel extensively, this is an extremely nice campground. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park with lots of amenities! There are basketball courts, a playground, putt-putt, swimming, paddle boats, fishing, a convenience store, and so much more. You don't have to leave the park to have lots to do. However, the vast majority of the sites are on a hill. We were assigned a spot on a steep hill for our 35' RV. We could not turn the corner to get into the spot due to the angle and the hillside. For this reason, I gave the park a 9. It's a nice park but the hillside is definitely a hindrance.

I would love to give this park a 10, but alas I cannot. My husband & I suggested this place for a family camping weekend because we had stayed there as an overnight stop while traveling and thought the park was beautiful, and clean. Built around a lake there were lots of things for the kids to do. Well, as they say, looks can be deceiving. Being a big holiday weekend, the place was full. I understand you are going to have stresses on the facilities when they're booked to the max, but if you want to expand your facility to have that big of a crowd you should make sure your infrastructure can handle it. We could live with the problems with the electric, but the water was another story. When we arrived they gave us a note saying they have well water, so fill your tank and work off that. But the pressure was so low, it took hours to fill the tank. It got progressively worse as the weekend progressed. It went from low pressure to no pressure to no water. And you'd never know when it was going to happen. they must have had 2 pumps because sometimes we'd have water on the RV side of the park, and sometime the kids would have it on the cabin side. Usually the cabin side had water - even if the pressure was super low. Then that side of the park lost water even in the public bath area. Women were seen leaving the shower area with shampoo or conditioner in their hair, and couldn't rinse because the water went out. The cabins our kids were staying in didn't have facilities, so they had to use the public areas. There were bathrooms at the concession area that worked. But the bathrooms in the public area, which by the way were spotless when we arrived, turned into bad versions of pit toilets. Our niece got up early Sunday morning and went to the public area - no water, and just a smelly, smelly mess, so she walked over to the concession area and THEY HAD LOCKED THE BATHROOMS!!! The only functioning public bathrooms in the place and they were locked! She was beyond furious; she was going to go and knock on the owners house and see if she could use their bathroom! They packed up and left. It ruined what was supposed to be a fun family get-together. They need to stop pouring cement and put their money into adequate water and electric services. We should have known when we saw the sign in the office that states: No refunds! I think they’ve expanded the park to get the money from the additional campers, but haven’t expanded their facilities to accommodate the crowd. They are at the top of my NEVER AGAIN list. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

I rated this same campground very high last year even though we had a reservation issue with our pull through. We ended up sharing it with a small camper. However, this year was unacceptable. I made reservations on 1.20.12 for July 3, 4 & 5th. 2-3 weeks before our visit, we received a call that said we could not have the site for the 5th and would have to move as someone else would be placed in that spot. Not sure why we were the ones that had to be moved, but we were told there was a huge mix-up with reservations for that weekend from the beginning of the year. They offered to place us in the "over flow" lot which I found out meant the parking lot. As we have an almost new 42 foot motorcoach I was not at all pleased with that arrangement. I told them to cancel our reservation and refund the money. That request had to be approved by someone else and we were finally told that could be done. One mix up I can understand but 2 in 2 years now places this campground on my "never visit again" list. Very sad. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

The nightly rate reflects a weekly rate. Although this is a very nice campground as described in the other reviews, I do have one complaint. This park is marginally big rig friendly. The campground is hilly with many turns. The turns are bordered with large flat sharp-edged rocks. If you hit a rock edge you will probably slice your tire or damage the side of your rig. When you get to the bottom of the hill to exit the park you have a right hand turn that has a cement fence on the left and wooden posts on the right. I'm sure the owner put the obstacles up so that people would not be putting ruts in the grass; however, rocks and cement fences are not very forgiving. We are 65 feet overall, and it took some maneuvering to get out without damage. Besides that, it is a very nice place that is great for kids and campfires. Because of our size we would probably not return. But if you have a smaller unit than ours, I would recommend this campground. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely loved this resort and wished we could stay longer. The playground is a real gem: well maintained, spacious and imaginative. Loved the porch swings for grown ups. We enjoyed our time swimming in the lake. The lifeguards are attentive and take their jobs seriously. Only complaint was the water pressure at our hookup. At times, nothing wanted to come out of the tap. I would definitely come back here. Great memories for our family. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.

27 Flavors of soft service ice cream! Need I say more? This is one beautiful campground. Fantastic swimming pond with 5 life guards. Landscaping is top notch. This is a place that wants you to have a great family experience at not a great cost and I give them a lot of credit for that. The consession stand was very low priced. We towed our truck and never left the grounds it was that fun. An older adult could not ride a bike here as the campsites are on a steep slope. We will return often.

This is a wonderful park set in the woods, and the owner is continually making improvements. Sites vary from quite small to larger pull throughs; however, most of the larger sites appeared to be used for seasonals. We were in site A6, which was a very nice, large, pull-through set up on the hill; however, maneuvering in and out with our 35ft fifth wheel was a bit difficult simply because of the slant of the hill. Would rate a 10 if there was wi-fi somewhere in the park, and if laundry facilities were expanded (there were only 2 washers and dryers, and the room was only open from 10am - 7pm). The staff and manager were awesome. When we arrived one of them drove my husband up to our site so he could see it before we went up to it with our trailer in tow; we also needed a mechanic because our truck died and they had someone come out to the campground, and he had it fixed within 24 hours! Since the lake is open to the public it does get pretty crowded, and it's a busy place on the weekends; however, noise was really not a problem. It's a great place to do a lot or just relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the campground. We also liked the close proximity to Amish country. There is a great mall nearby (that's where we hooked up to wi-fi) and Beuhler's grocery store. The "Lynn Drive-In" theater is about a 25 minute drive. We'll definitely return. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Since the new ownership, this is a beautiful place with LOTS to do. Clean, quiet, well thought out with concession stand and rentable pedal boats and putt putt. Many seasonal campers but they are friendly and clean. The sites are tight but I have seen much worse. I would come back for sure. We camped at Wood's Tall Timber Lake Resort in a Motorhome.
