We chose this place as it would be close to the jobsite. We were told it was in good condition despite spring thaw and would have no trouble getting in an out. It was extremely muddy and required 4-wheel drive to negotiate. Also, you couldn't get to the RV without wading through mud. The job requires the boss be able to get in touch anytime. This was not possible even though the park personnel said AT&T would not work but that Verizon worked well. (We got a Verizon phone for this reason). Phone and computer access are required for the job as reports have to be submitted. The gentleman next door also could not use his phone or computer. There is virtually no lighting. The cable TV did not work. They knew that because the person before us also had problems with it. They did offer another site, but with the mud and no assurance that anything would be better, it seemed to be a lot of effort and muddy mess for little or no benefit. We were forced to move after 6 days so as not to jeopardize the job. We tried to work out a reasonable settlement with the owner for either the daily rate or 1/2 month to no avail. This disastrous park costs us $500.00 plus electricity for only 6 days. We felt that since the park did not live up to their end of the contract, there should be some refund. The owner was extremely rude and belligerent about the whole thing. We have stayed at many parks from rustic to elaborate and never had such poor conditions and service. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

I went to this campground because of good memories of camping there as a child. I wish I had gone to Little Pine State Park across the road. How much sense is it to charge $0.25 for a three minute shower? Especially since the showers lasted for only two minutes (this coming from more than one person). There are no temperature controls and sometimes the water is very hot, sometimes cold and rarely just right. There are also no changing areas with each shower stall so undressing and dressing takes place out in the common area with no privacy. The coin machines are also on the opposite wall from the showers so after putting a quarter in you have to cross the room to get into your shower. If the shower stops while you are halfway through with your shower you have to cross the room again and insert another quarter. After confronting the owners about paid showers, all they could say was "It has been that way for years". No explanations of conserving water or anything else. I require a breathing machine at night so we requested a tent site with electric and water service. Our so called tent site while big was all stone! The grass tent sites didn't have electric service. Some of these tent sites could only barely fit a two person tent and didn't have any fire rings or picnic tables. It seems they are concentrating on their cabins and yurts rather than their tent or RV sites. We stayed there for five nights no other tent or RV site was occupied except for the one next to ours which happened to be my parents! Only one or two of the cabins were filled during this time. For those of you with allergies to certain pool chemicals beware. They use Bromic acid in their pool. There aren't any signs stating this and my daughter got a rash from the pool chemicals. I would not recommend this campground to anyone and certainly will not go there again. We camped here in a Tent.
