This park has rapidly deteriorated over the last few years. Long-term campers have full sized refrigerators and even living room furniture outside making the entire place look trashy. The pit toilets weren't clean, were practically overflowing, and the stench was terrible. The beach has eroded and is becoming overgrown with weeds. The RV sites have become more and more unlevel. The only dump station is in an awkward place in the park where bigger rigs can't fit. Shore power from the pedestal is weak and erratic. A surge blew out one of my outlets and the power was so weak I couldn't run my AC. When I brought these issues to the owner's attention he immediately became very defensive and told me not to come back. Management is terrible! We won't be back to this park!

This park is really a mixed bag. The good are great views of Lake Alice from numerous sites and a nice swimming beach. There are boat docks and the fishing in excellent. Many mature trees also provide great shade. The bad is that there are no sites with sewer and the dump station is in a awkward place in the middle of the permanent campers sites. The pads are also extremely un-level (so bring extra boards or leveling blocks). The toilets are strictly "outhouse" style, dumping directly into the holding tank (so, it stinks). However, overall I do like this park since it offers access to beautiful Lake Alice. I'll stay here in the future. We camped at Sure-Wood Forest Campground Bar & Grill in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $21.00
We stayed in a campsite right along the water and rented a very nice pontoon boat. People were very friendly and helpful. Check in is at the bar and there's a new shower house with 3 mens and 3 womens showers with on demand hot water heaters--which worked great. Showers are coin operated and clean. My kids loved the beach and spent a lot of time fishing from the boat docks. I've already reserved a campsite for next year. We camped at Sure-Wood Forest Campground Bar & Grill in a Motorhome.
This is a very scenic little campground. Most of the sites have permanent campers installed. 12 sites are available for overnight. You check in at their bar. The restrooms were vault toilets that smelled pretty bad. I did not use their showers, but it was reported to me that they were not clean and cost to take a cold shower. They have electricity available, but my site shared a 20 amp breaker with the site next me. You could not run very many things with the camper next to you plugged in without blowing the breaker, and using the a/c is out of the question. Fortunatly, one of the employees showed me where the main breaker panel was so I could re-set it when needed. Our site was about 50 feet from a nice little swim beach, but it gets crowded on weekends from the locals coming there. Overall, I might stay there again if I'm in the area.
