It is a nice campground, with new owners who are very friendly and very visible. Pets are welcome. There is a nice pool. When the campground is full, it is very tight with cars and people. Pulling out on a Sunday morning took longer than expected. Townsend is great, never left--no need for Gatlinburg! Site 23 is amazing for popups! Nice people, my husbands cell/wallet ended up on the road and someone turned it into the office and they locked it up for us. People need to be very aware of the Little River, two drownings in July 2011. The ice cream place across the field next door was expensive and terrible! The Back Porch is a great place to eat. Carriage Hill has a very affordable buffet for families. Also be aware most businesses close very early in Townsend.
Nice stop for an overnight stay. Tons of shade, sites are slightly unmarked. Close to shopping/restaurants. Campground located inside nice city park. I would recommend, but not for a vacation--more for a pitstop.
Just returned from a week at Duck Creek. Pros: Beautiful campground, great pool, clean facilities, amazing campsites, utilities great, strong Wi-Fi, very quiet, great playground. Cons: RULES RULES RULES! Showed up 90 minutes before designated checkin, they charged me $4.50. Two very old angry men driving golf carts all day, working dawn to midnight. They need to be Wal-Mart greeters instead. Scolded about my daughter being at the pool with another family. They post rules and they mean it. They were friendly when our car broke down and needed repair, but it was rather chaotic for a few minutes while trying to please everyone. Another thing, beautiful check in building, but sells nothing worthwhile! Only mass amounts of junk candy. I need newspaper, coffee, MILK, the regular stuff. I was pleased to see tons of dogs, so very pet friendly. My final complaint: yesterday they had Public Safety Awareness. FIVE firetrucks, ambulances, etc., drove up and down the campground for 15 minutes lights/sirens BLAZING. It scared my dog to death. So unnecessary: at first I thought someone had drowned. I will go back, but beware of the angry old men workers. They will yell at your kids and like it.
Great place, super quiet, helpful and friendly park rangers. It is so quiet you feel bad making any noise at all! Be sure to check out The Love Shack for a great meal and don't forget Seaside or Grayton Beach! Also, a WalMart is buying built across the street from The Donut Hole.
Delightful park. Nice updated bathhouse with very clean shower. Nice amphitheater, hike/bike trails, views of lake. It is in the boonies, but worth the drive (Goshen is 6 miles away). Canoe/kayak rental available. Stonelick is very similar to Cowan Lake, just has more hills and elevation change which I feel makes it more interesting since the park isn't flat. Friends of Stonelick take very good care of the park. We will definitely come here again.
Delightful park. Great concrete sites with double parking on each site. We got over 30 channels on our digital TV. One of the nicest bathhouses I have seen and used, hot water all the time. Lots of maintenance folks keeping the park clean. Beautiful beach, stunned at how crowded it was. I feel paying an additional $10 entrance fee because we are out of state was silly, but for a park this nice, I'll pay it. Will definitely go here again! Beautiful trails and really nice playgrounds for the kids. Chesterton is 3 miles away, has everything you need. Also visit the official Visitor Center too! I would give this park a 10 if it was full hookup.
Huge campground, so big I never saw the entire property. Playgrounds were just okay. Our site was nice and paved. Half the campground was French. Great pools. The most well stocked camp store I have ever seen. WiFi was iffy at times. Bands and music until 11 pm every night. Jet noise was constant but not too annoying. Staff was very friendly and buying discounted tourist tickets at the office was a plus. Bathrooms were good but laundry facility needed a cleaning. The crowd was very diverse and ethnic. The supersites are awesome, get one if you can, well worth it. We would camp here again. We camp all summer and this is the first time I've ever locked our trailer when we were gone, just way too many people in the campground, especially when a city bus comes in. They need cable TV also. All in all, a good week and we enjoyed ourselves at Virginia Beach. This is the closest campground to the beach.
This was an interesting campground. It is very large but very nice. It was quiet, no problems with rowdy campers. The pool was nice and the camp store was adequate. They do offer discounts to the StarLine ferry to the island. I never saw allot of security or staff on the premises. I wasn't sure if I wanted this campground or Wilderness State Park and I was glad that we picked this campground. Tons of trees and adequate privacy/shade in the large rv section. The waterfront sites were super tight, more than I would prefer. Beware of tent/pop-up camping--no bathrooms except a main shower house in the middle of the property. We have discovered that we really enjoy Michigan and hope to visit again soon.
A lovely park...very small with just 3 full service sites. The most quiet place I've ever stayed. The Sauder Village is a great place for a long weekend and campers get free use of the village pool and game room which was very nice. I highly recommend!! The staff was the most friendly I have ever encountered--ever. The Barn was a great place to eat. The town of Archbold was much better than expected. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean. Will visit again.
Just returned from this park. Despite reading many poor reviews, I really liked this park and had an enjoyable visit. The staff is very nice. Yes, there are golf carts, but it wasn't overwhelming. The park is very hilly so be aware of that. The shuttle to Holiday World is great, and the pool was nice. We were there for July 4th so it was full. There is a full grocery store across the street (Holiday Foods). We also visited the Lincoln Memorial. We really enjoyed the campground along with some great family fun at Holiday World!
We just returned from this park. Many activities--caving, horseback riding, trails, mini-golf. Be prepared with extra hose and electric extensions because the water/electric is strange at best! And they do not sell these things at the camp store. We reserved a full hook up site, only to be very disappointed that the sewer hole was at the street-well my tank is at the back of my camper (like most). So we just dumped when we left. I complained to the store employee and her response was that it was new and that trees and roots dictated where the sewer holes were. Another thing that kept happening was we kept tripping the electric box, at least 7 times for no reason. Then one night the transformer above the mini-golf blew and out went the power! To my total surprise, the park workers had it fixed in 90 minutes! I was expecting no power for at least 24 hours. Go to Grayson for groceries, only 10 miles away. The park itself is gorgeous with many wonderful trails. The folks at the campground were all nice and polite. Make sure to pick up the weekly schedule on Sundays, many things to do for free. Very nice experience and we will go back. We ate a very good buffet at the lodge. Be aware of the sharp left turn uphill to get into the park. We were very surprised that there is NO signage warning you.
This is your typical Ohio state park. There is an area where the sites literally back into each other, but they do have full service sites that back into a tree line. The new 4 stall dump station is a real plus. I felt the beach was nasty, but my kids enjoyed it because it is mainly a huge sandbar and they could walk out really far and still be safe. Nice campstore.
We go here alot because it is close to home. The price creeps up every year but no improvements are made. The airplane traffic has gone down significantly since DHL has laid off the entire town of Wilmington. This place is alot of fun for the Halloween weekend. The same park ranger is always there but you don't see him much. Watch out for raccoons and skunks.
Absolutely fabulous...the nicest place we will probably ever stay at! Warning...site 10 has an electric pole which also has a huge light on it that will shine all night long. We seem to be the only site in the place that had this..other sites had a nice light pole at the end of the site at the street. No biggie, but a nuisance if you want darkness at night. The office was actually staffed with park rangers who were very nice...employees everywhere checking things out and cleaning up. Beautiful beach!
This was our stop on our way to Florida. The folks were nice on the phone when I made my reservation. The speed bump at the entrance is ridiculous, but they did have a very nice computer kiosk for check in. However, the site we reserved had someone already in it, so we looked for another site only to have someone then say that was their site. Mgmt could have helped, but they close at 5:30 pm on a Friday night! Sites were super tight and the rain had flooded the place. Too much noise since you are right under I-65. We were there for 8 hours and then took off. The office did reimburse me the full amount because the computer kiosk did not have my reservation so I paid twice. Go to Jellystone if you want to camp in Nashville.
