Very large campground but not much shade here. The hook ups are more to the middle of the pad than the rear so take lots of server hose. Reservation system needs to be revamped, needs to be site specific. When we arrived we were given site 61, went there and someone was already camped there. We also don't understand why campground guests have to pay $2 for pool access but cabin guests do not.
Sites here are VERY close together. When I put my slide and awning out I was just about, if not over into my neighbor's site. Bathrooms are in dire need of an upgrade: no A/C so sometimes the doors are left open to cool them, allowing roving eyes to look in. Showers are small and one cannot control the water temperature, nor the duration of the spray. Further, someone left human waste in the women's handicapped shower the day of our departure, not exactly a friendly, nor well-behaved crowd here. Pets are restricted to be walked in a small area at the front of the campground, not exactly what I would call pet friendly. As for sight seeing in Philadelphia, take the PATCO train at the Woodcrest station into Philadelphia to see the sights, $5.40 per round trip and parking at the station was free.
Very nice park, only wish (1) they had a shuttle to and from the commuter rail station and (2) the sites were a bit bigger. All sites and all roads are gravel, so tell your kids to be careful on their bikes. As for sightseeing, the concierge directs you to the green subway line, I would recommend the red. It's closer and less stops to get into downtown. Also, at some of the green stops, the engineer seemed to be collecting fares which slows you down even more. Further, if you have a high/tall profile vehicle make sure your vehicle can fit into the garage at the station, we went to Quincy North which had ground parking. They also have nice air-conditioned, clean restrooms.
Nice campground in a wooded setting, take your mosquito repellent. Bathrooms are closed for cleaning from 2:30 - 4:00 PM, plan accordingly. Had a problem here as they did not inform us with our reservation that we could not store our boat on our camp site, same is true for utility trailers, too. Also, they don't seem to enforce their rules except for boat & utility trailers, slight problem w/ quiet hours, people dumping their gray tanks on the ground, etc.
Nice waterfront setting on Lake Winnebago with a boat ramp and docking available. Restrooms are a bit small, only one shower in each. Beach is a bit small, but great access to the reefs along the west side of Lake Winnebago south of Oshkosh.
We were in Sandy Beach Campground, site D74, a group site with my brother and two nieces. Bathrooms are of the pit variety and were as clean as could be expected. No other facilities here. Nice view of the lake and of Laramie Peak. Beach close by for the kids and a few shelters. Man at the Sandy Beach gate has a screw loose.
We had some equipment problems that they pointed out upon our arrival. Fortunately my brother lives in Cheyenne and was able to help, although the campground offered. Good BBQ available right in the park. Sites would be a bit tight if the park would have been full. Showeres and stalls were a bit narrow for those of us that are "supersized". Nice dog park.
Pull Thru sites were not very long. We were towing our boat and wanted to take our camper off of our truck to tour the area. So we had to park the truck in the site next to us as did large motorhomes with a car in tow and fifth wheels. showers, while clean were not as functional as one might like, no bench or chair in the indivisual showers which were between the bathrooms. Road noise from SR 79 could be a problem for light sleepers.
How this park in Mt Eaton has a Dundee, OH address is beyond me. Very nice enclosed pool & hot tub area, all glass, water temperature of the pool was great. Only downside is that the sites are a bit close together.
We were in a pull through site, #161. Unfortunately that site floods when it rains hard, we had 2-1/2 to 3 inches of water under our camper. The ranger couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. He dug a hole, put a bucket and pump in the bucket and pumped the water across #160 to the drain. It took about 2-1/2 to 3 hours but our site no longer had standing water. I talked to him about the park. This park was re-done and re-opened in 2003. They raised the campground about 11 feet and the causeway to get to it to offset some problems they had with flooding. And, yes they had to remove all of the trees in the campground other than those just off of the beach otherwise the trees would have died raising the ground that far.
No sewer hook ups but they will pump your black & gray tank and NOT charge you. I've stayed here before and was a little disappointed the showers weren't cleaner this year, lots of dead mosquiotoes on the wall. Campground is owned & operated by the Breitung Twp. Usually on Friday afternnons they have special kid activities on their playgeound or beach. If reserving a specific site I'd send a confirmation letter or e-mail.
Stopped here on our way to FL from IN, very nice clean park. Staff was friendly, where else can you get free popcorn & slushie just for checking in. Plus they had cable TV for us to watch the NCAA Basketball Tournament and since I had forgotten our cable, they had some available to buy.
This a state park that is not overrun on the weekends. Even on Memorial Day weekend there were still a couple of sites available. And the sites are fairly large so that you are not on top of one another as you are in other Indiana State Parks such as Paynetown.
Nice place for an overnight stop, however the pull thru sites are extremely close together. When I put my jack down I was almost right beside the neighbor's campfire. Owner seems like a nice guy, waited up for us to arrive and led us to our spot plus told me my truck/truck camper & boat wouldn't fit on the end site as the were a bit smaller than the other pull thru's. Believe they need to take a pull thru site out to give everyone more room.
This park was sold about a year ago and they are going through some changes, the store is not open as one might like. However, this is a VERY nice campground with gated access & exit. Some of the sites are very deep to handle bigger motor homes. Quite a few sites are completely shaded and we hardly saw a mosquito. Lots of roads with lots of kids on bikes, etc so be careful. My 10 year old son loved riding his bike here.
These people like to nickel and dime you to death, extra for electricity, extra to run and A/C, extra to use the pool and extra to use the shower, but you can't control the water temperature. Some sites don't even have 30 amp hookup. Plus if you're towing a boat most sites off of the main drag do not have enough room to store your boat on site, that is if you can back it in. Bottom line, these people only care about green ($). Go to Tranquil Timbers in Sturgeon Bay.
