Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $22.00
Very crowded and un-level camping sites. Restrooms were filled with bugs (dead ones, and some still flying) and were not clean. Fishermen played radios (too loud) late into the night. We camped at MarDon Resort in a Motorhome.
Extremely tight spaces! 1st site (#165) we were assigned to, there was no way we could maneuver our 29' into it! There's a fairly steep bank opposite the site & cliff down to the beach on the other side. Don't have 18 year olds w/no experience parking rigs, assigning spaces! Ended up in site #117, along the row of permanent residents. Couldn't use our fire pit: there was a 10ft sloped space between back of our trailer & the fence along (busier than you would expect) Hwy 262. 1st private park we've maybe ever stayed in, w/no TV cable offering. No grassy, open areas to even go play games/catch/frisbee. To top if off, office claimed our site was right in middle of their 2 WiFi hot-spots so if we really needed access we could find an empty site and use the picnic table. We learned the hard way, if you don't have watercraft, don't come to MarDon. We camped at MarDon Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A decent park that is very popular with fishermen and boaters. We stayed at the end of the park, which was nice to be far away from the crowds. This is a gated park with several full-time/seasonal RV'ers who stay here (retirees), which is nice for keeping an eye on things. I have to say that I was skeptical about staying here after reading some of the past reviews, but we had no issues and our site was great (#165). The Potholes area is beautiful, we only wish that we had a fishing boat to get out on the water! We camped at MarDon Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here on the Passport America rate on a Sunday in a 35' motorhome. Although many sites were available, the site (149) we finally chose as the least of all evils wasn't level (our hydraulic jacks couldn't level our coach), although the setting was beautiful with the lake, the park looked very trashy. Their "best site" offered to us turned out to be behind the store/bar, next to the road, and next to the boat ramp, not our kind of site at all. Most sites are very small and pushed together. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped at MarDon Resort in a Motorhome.
This place is filthy. The Bathrooms and showers were disgusting, garbage cans dumped all over the floor and it was like that for 2 days. We pulled into a grassy site and there was dog dirt, fish heads and other debris, needless to say we moved and told the office about the sites. About three hours later someone came and cleaned up the dog dirt and that was it. It's to bad the place is such a mess as the lake is beautiful. We would never ever stay there again. We camped at MarDon Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the dirtiest most crammed in rv parks I have ever been to. We were warned it was a "dump" but way worse then we ever imagined. The staff was very friendly but it does not make up for everything else. The sights are so small even our tiny travel trailer had a problem getting in. Kids, pets, cars, bikes even adults are running loose around the park. I cant even begin to explain what a "pit hole" this place is. The bugs are horrible too. I would SO reccomend the state park over this place. We would never go back. We camped at MarDon Resort in a Travel Trailer.
