What a wonderful RV Park! It has everything for the RVer and Family. Plus they are spending money on things to make it better, including tree removal and adding paving to all the main roads. Its quite a change since we were here three years ago. It, in my opinion, should rate a 12 on a scale of 1 to 10! BUT - -Two problems - - Dogs rule. Small dogs are continuously barking when they are tied out and left alone, or left in a camper with the windows open while the family is out and about and one rather large dog, a Mastiff, with a leash being held by a 9 year old (about 70 pounds) attacked a minature poodle during a large gathering in the park. Second problem I see is a large number of golf carts and electric scooters being operated by 7 to 10 year olds with not a clue about safety or other traffic. When they get these problems solved, their rating will be a 10+
I'm not sure what park was covered by the last two reviews, but it sure wasn't Thousand Trails Indian Lakes. We've been here 5 days so far and there is no water at the sites from 6:00AM until after midnight. Park maintenance is an afterthought. Granted, it had rained hard just before we arrived, but the rain doesn't make the pot holes the size they are. BUT: it doesn't help any one when the members park in the grass areas, now mud and have to get pulled out. The rest rooms were also a disaster, due to lack of water for the sanitary system. When I asked for the manager Monday AM, I was informed she was off for the Holiday. You might just think: a Holiday Weekend. The manager should take a day off when they were not so busy!
What a great RV Park. This is the fourth year we have stayed, while visiting family in the area. We've looked at several other RV Parks in the area and none compare to this one. Owner/manager is a super gal, who won't put up with any guff. Many will appreciate the fact that if people have a dog traveling with them, they can't leave it tied out, and left to bark all day. Park is dog friendly, just obey the rules. Pool wasn't open yet, but they were getting it ready for the season. Rate is based on the weekly rate. Park would be a 10, but for no Cable TV or WiFi
This RV Park (A resort it ain't) has gone down hill in the last year. Holes in the roads a VW could get lost in, rest rooms are not taking care of, washers loosing water on floor. Yes they had tornado damage, but that was last year (May 2010) and the damage still evident. Broken water outlets, electric boxes laying on ground, etc. This was a GREAT park at one time and can be again with a little attention to fixing stuff. Rate reflect a weekly stay.
Nice older park very well maintained. It an old Methodist Church Meeting Camp. (No alcohol in this RV Park and no smoking outside of your RV.) It has many cabins and meeting halls. A big old fashioned play ground for kids, and a large community fire ring are across the main drive. Gravel road and sites in campground were level and well maintained. Electric post had both 30 amp and 50 amp service. Be sure you use a pressure regulator, as the static water pressure is 90#. Over all a nice quiet place to overnight or stay a couple of days. The rate reflects the P.A. discount. I would have given this park a 10 if it had sewer connections at each site. It does have a large dump station at the exit that is easy to get into and use.
Last post covered most of the problems in this older park. The Good - most sites are level but short. There are some pull-throughs. Both shaded and sunny sites available. Most sites have fire rings. Some of the park is easy to move through, but low hanging trees are starting to be a problem. The Bad - Very low water pressure <15 psig in AM and PM. Voltage was low in the evening, 111 volts. Dogs rule, many large dogs, including Pit Bulls, even in the bathrooms. Bath rooms are cleaned with a hose down, when they are done, leaving toilet seats and tissue holders dripping, and muddy foot prints on floor. Roads all dirt, and they try to keep them graded. Laundry facilities are out dated, cold water only and very expensive. Most of the campers are seasonal, with many very old motor homes and old school buses. Some of the sites have old trucks and work trailers sitting on them. Although reasonably priced for the area, it is still overpriced for what is provided. We have been here before, but will not be back.
Rate reflects Coast to Coast member rate. Park is decent, with a lot of yearly and seasonal residents, but there are a number of pull throughs at the top of the hill, and all are gravel and level. We were able to stay hooked up for this over night stop. Office staff was in new work camper training mode, so getting checked in took a little longer than normal - - BUT - - we really had a good time visiting, yakking, and confusing the new lady. We look forward to coming back to this park. There is much to do in the area - - Hartsville is just down the road with a huge weekend Flea Market and a great Amish Restaurant, along with the best hardware store in the Eastern US. Just to the West is Akron, home of Goodyear with an interesting museum about manufacturing rubber and tires, and just south is the Goodyear Blimp Base on Wing Foot Lake - - check in the Base office about a Blimp Ride. Best of all, just North of Mogodore is the home of Summit Racing, (big boys toy shop)with all kinds of car and truck goodies.
