I was with a group of four families that camped here Memorial Day weekend, 2009. This facility appears to be entirely run by an older couple who are in over their heads. The campground itself is nice enough, but the infrastructure is crumbling around them. Our first problem was with the pressure relief valve on the water faucet. It leaked like a sieve on my site and an adjoining one, and when I reported it, the solution was to hook up a “Y” connection with another site that didn’t have a problem. Good thing the neighbor was accommodating! The next problem was with the power. One in our party has a 36 foot Class A motorhome and their site had only 15 amp service! The solution was to again swap with someone who had a 30 amp connection. We were on their safari field and there were hoses and cords running all over the place. The roads in the campground were in deplorable shape with deep ruts and washouts, so you had to move extremely slow in order not to bottom out your rig or tow vehicle. The area near the dumping station was extremely bad, where we actually backed up and turned around our units, rather than having to traverse the affected area. We had a minor problem with our billing because a child over 5 who was supposed to be with us when we booked the reservation wasn’t, so we had $12 coming back to us. Asking for our refund seemed to be an imposition, and the owner was indignant that one of our party couldn’t make it because of a medical condition and wanted to know how she was going to get the balance owed! On the plus side, they had activities like cards, bingo and a DJ, as well as horseshoes and bocci, although the latter two I think were mostly pick up games with a group that appeared to know each other. The hayride advertised in their flyer never materialized and the pool looked like it was not quite ready for prime time with algaecide foam floating on the top. A point of interest is that they actually have the remnants of an old sawmill within their office/store/game room complex. Also a plus is that their rates were a very reasonable $36 a night for a holiday weekend. So overall I’d say that we probably won’t return due to the poor condition of the facilities and the attitude of the two people we had to deal with, who I assume are the owners. The overall attitude can be described as grumpy. If what I have described would not be concerns to you, then this place can be considered a good value. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
