We love this park, but the winter rates are ridiculous, hence the low rating. We were charged the daily rate to camp, plus $7 per person PER DAY for the activities fee. The big slide was open for 1 hour per day, and the pool was open for 2 hours per day. That, to me, does NOT justify $7 per day per person, which for a big family really adds up. Plus, our cousins wanted to come hang out with us for the day, and they charged us $15 per person for them and they couldn't even use any of the activities because they were closed! This park is nice, and fun for the kids, but the prices have gotten ridiculous. The staff were also hit or miss as far as helpful and kind. We will think twice before wasting our money here again.
We loved this park! There were plenty of things to do, and the kids had a great time playing in the pool and the beach area. The park was clean and well-maintained. My family was able to get 2 cabins right across from our RV site, so it worked out very well for all of us. We did book 3 months in advance, so that helped to be able to pick exactly which site we wanted. My only issue was that my sister has a boat and the boat launch was a little tough to navigate, but that wasn't my issue. Overall this park was great and we will certainly be back.
This park was okay, but I was expecting better from the previous reviews. First, the premium sites that were "on the lake" were not exactly so. Yes, some of them backed up to the lake, but there was a steep incline between us and the lake, and you could not swim in the area where we were at (It was a big wall, and you could fish, but it would have been nearly impossible to get in and out of the water to swim). In fact, there was no designated swimming area at all in the state park (they told me it was "swim at your own risk" so we didn't), and the pool cost $3 per person to get in (it's privately owned, not part of the state park). Also, the sites were very heavily wooded, so getting in and out of them (even with our just 29' trailer) was challenging. It was entertaining to watch a couple with about a 35' motor home try to manuever into one of the sites. All the sites are back in, and you really have to be careful of the trees. Overall this park was okay, but we will probably try somewhere else in the area next time.
We stayed here one night, and that was more than enough. The sites were extremely close together, and were very difficult to get in and out of. The hookups were all at the very front of the site, so we had to pull completely through the site, unhook our trailer, and then drive back around to park the suburban behind the trailer. Sites for daily use were all gravel and staggered so that they could fit more in. This was mostly a mobile home park with lots of permanent residents and very few day use people. We will not be staying here again.
My understanding was that the sites were right on the beach, but they were not. They were certainly within walking distance (over a bridge over some dunes), but they were not "on" the beach. Make sure that you bring LOTS of bug spray, as the mosquitos were horrible. The inner loop sites have the picnic tables on the back side of the rig, while the outer loop sites have them right out the door, so consider that when choosing a site. Restrooms were fairly clean, but there was a line for the showers in the evenings, since there are no sewer hookups and most everyone wants to conserve the space in their tanks. There was also a line at the dump station when we got ready to leave, so keep that in mind when deciding what time to load up. Overall a nice enough stay, but next time we will look for a place with full hookups.
First of all, the nightly rate is just the base rate. They also add on a $6 per person day use rate that really adds up for a big family. Overall, this was a good park. The kids had a blast (ages 3-11), and there were lots of activities for them to do while we were there. Beware of hidden costs that add up quickly (such as the arts and crafts projects, ice cream sundaes, etc.). The putt putt golf area was very rundown and had lots of dangerous areas, but still usable with close parental supervision. My 2 oldest kids loved that they could ride their bikes all over the campground. My 4 year old was upset that the roads were rocks and his training wheels wouldn't work on their roads so he couldn't ride his bike. The petting zoo was not as described. The door was locked, and all you could do was buy food from a little vending machine and then hold it through small holes in the fence. My kids were dissapointed because we assumed that "petting zoo" would mean you could actually PET the animals! Our fault for assuming. Also, there was always a line at the registration building which also doubled as the gift shop. The employees seemed to be in no particular hurry and not in a mood to help anyone. Overall this was a great weekend, but there are definitely things that could use improvement.
This was our first time out in our new travel trailer, and I think it was a good start. The park was clean, it was easy enough to hook everything up, and the staff seemed friendly. The playground area was somewhat old and in disrepair, but the rest of the park was fine. My kids loved fishing off the gazebo that was right behind our site, and my oldest caught 12 fish!! (It was a stocked pond, but he didn't care). We brought our dogs, and were happy that they had a "Kanine Kamp" area where the dogs could be off their leashes and just run around and play. But be careful, our dogs are small, and they figured out how to scoot under the gate and get out. The park is very large, so there were several empty sites near us for the kids to ride bikes on, etc. The price is a little high, but I am hoping it was because it was a holiday weekend. Overall we were very happy with this campground.
