What a great find! Small campground, check-in is a bit hard to find (is in the mining exhibit office) but worth the effort! They have a fantastic exercise trail that is wonderful to walk if you are neither young nor fit ; ) There is a great water park adjacent and a nice little playground. The sites are back in, but easy, level and up in the trees. Great value, quiet and lovely. What more could you ask for?
Fantastic little place! Yes it is close to the road and you can hear the road noise; but that's the price you pay for convenience. At night, the "night sounds" drown it out. I sat outside under a huge tree and watched deer nibble about in the field amidst the fire flies...magical. Loads of lovely trees and grass. Yes, it's been there awhile, but it is nicely kept. The cabins are all along a very pretty little pond (not for swimming), and there is a swimming hole for the kiddos with loads of floaties. No more murky than most ponds I've seen. Staff is friendly and helpful. They could use a folding table in the laundry room. That's about all I could fault them for. The difficulty of the turn in is highly over-rated. I'm a middle aged woman hauling a 23' travel trailer with no particular skill and it was easy. Go slow. If you're going fast you deserve to have problems with the turn. It is easy to miss the first time, but go just .1 miles on down the road and there are loads of easy places to turn around. I have made something of a ritual of missing the campground driveways the first time. I'm sure I'm not alone there.
