Bring plenty of insect repellent with you to this one. The mosquitoes will eat you alive if you don't. Also be prepared for side by side hookups and don't try to use any electrical appliances with your air conditioner running or you may end up without power. When we arrived on our site the trailer in the next site was plugged into our electrical receptacle. Found out later, after power failed twice, that his power had been going off all week and he had been resetting the breaker several times each day and night. I called the office right away and they promised to send someone. There was only one man on duty and he had to escort an unexpected 18 new arrivals to their sites so it took him about an hour to come over and replace the breaker. I will say that any campground can have a bad day, and we were only here for one night. On the plus side, there is a separated row of sites along the far side of the CG for seasonals, but this results in all the short timers staying in two long rows of sites with side by side hookups. As East Coast campers we are used to paying a lot for not much, but we were still surprised to pay $54 for shared hookups. We'll keep driving and pass this one by next time.

Close to highway but amazingly quiet. Courteous, welcoming staff. Level easy access sites. Clean and well maintained. Pool was clear and cool. We stopped here in the afternoon for an overnight stay. As "strangers" from out of state we were not expecting a big welcome, but the woman who checked us in made us feel like regulars. She offered us free pie from a local bakery and free tomatoes from her garden. She traded recipes with my wife and really made us sorry we were unable to stay longer. Will mark this in our journal as one of the good ones and include a stop here the next time we are in the area.

This is a nice, small campground with an old time feel to it. Some sites border an Amish farm, some of these sites are a little narrow, one is too narrow for slide outs. Base rate is for 3 way hookups, an additional $4 per day for air conditioning, another $4 per day for cable. Still a good value in this area. Sites are level, friendly, helpful staff, most sites were not seasonals. Amish farm store within 100 yards. Scooter and motorcycle rental less than one mile away. Some barking dogs from the farm, not from campers. We especially appreciate the no campfire rule, but know others may not share this preference, so be aware of this. Propane stoves and grills are allowed outdoors. Many sites have large shade trees, and others confirmed for us that satellite TV is hit or miss with tree cover. Also has full hookups in the winter. Staff informed us that winter availability depends on depth of any snow. All in all an unpretentious but nice, little campground. Staff told us sites are easy to book in the summer (we called two days before), but the place gets busy in the fall season. We plan to return when the leaves turn.

A clean, large campground, but not a 10. Sites were not level, this is a very hilly area and all the sites we observed slanted downhill. Trailers with tongue jacks will have an easier time leveling than will a motorhome. There are a dozen sites on a blacktop area near the East building. The trolley to town is a nice feature,, especially if you do not bring car. The office staff were helpful, and did not mind our attempts to find a level site, giving us several to try and just asking us to call them and tell them which one we chose. Our stay was Monday to Thursday, so they might not be able to offer so many site choices on the weekends. We stayed at this campground many years ago when it was much smaller. It is still a very nice campground. If we return we will just ask to be put "on the blacktop."

Level site, was wet when we arrived after a rainy night but quickly drained. Site was packed earth and gravel, very firm and easy to level. Friendly staff, good gate security. Small but well-stocked camp store. Easy hookups, well placed. The campground lost power for about an hour in the evening and the owner drove around informing campers of the situation (a general outage, not just the campground). A really nice, not frilly, basic old-style campground. We plan to return on our next trip in the area.

A very nice, quiet campground. We did not use the bathrooms but did look in and they were clean. We had a nice, level site in the upper section with tree shade for the afternoon sun. There were a few seasonal (actually seemed like "lifetime") sites that were a bit rundown, set back in the trees, but this section was almost all travelers. Lots of well cared for rigs, from tiny to huge. Hookups were well placed. A small ice cream truck came through each afternoon with goodies for sale. The camp store stocks many high-end items for campers who are caught short or forgot some gear at home. There are sleeping bags, tents, lanterns, etc. There was not much food and no perishables like bread or milk for sale. Big hills to climb up and down entering and exiting this upper area, but large motor homes and trailers were able to make it OK. Might be a little intimidating for a novice, but it is doable. We plan to return to this campground in the future.

We were only here for one night but I felt it was important to give this campground a recommendation. Clean, level, spacious sites. Hookups placed properly. It was midweek so there were a lot of empty sites, but the way the sites are spaced, I think it would not seem crowded even if all the sites were full. We stopped here for our last night on our way home from Illinois and we have marked this campground as our first night stop the next time we head west. Friendly, helpful staff round out the list of good things here.

Hillside location. Sites may not look level at first glance but they are. Easy curves make big rig access a breeze. Nice little camp store with basic foods and some RV essentials available. Lots of collectible baskets for sale. Friendly, informative staff. We were fooled by a low-clearance sign (10'7") on the way to the campground, but realized the campground entrance was a mile before that bridge. This is a clean, well managed campground and we will definitely stay here again on our next trip through Ohio.

Adding my praise for this little campground to the other recent reviews. It is quiet and clean, with friendly helpful staff. Easy in and out level sites. Small but efficient and affordable laundry. Good paved access road and gravel site loop road. Rounded stone gravel on sites, no puddles even after four days of rain. All pull through sites face the pond except one (11A). Best on-line reservation system I have ever seen. Matches your needs to available sites and you pick and reserve your site directly on site map. Plan to stay here again next time we visit our son at University of Illinois. Guarantee you will not be disappointed by this campground.

This is usually our first overnight stop when we head south, and our last night stop on our way home. We used a back in site, and the rate was cheaper than the pull throughs. We also got a AAA discount. Sites are thick, packed, level gravel so our rig leveled firmly. Year round full hook ups with winter-proof water shut offs are a plus. Friendly staff and guide to site as noted by others. This campground is close to I-95 so you can hear some traffic, but the easy access to and from the campground saves time and miles when all you need is a clean, friendly place to stop for the night.

This park is immaculate and we found everyone to be very friendly and helpful, pointing us to several local attractions and good restaurants. The sites are spacious and level, all with mesmerizing views of the Lancaster countryside. We saw Amish buggies, horse drawn plows on working farms, and a five mile vista all from our premier campsite. All the sites have good views, but the few extra dollars for the front row sites is worth it, especially if it is your first time here. The first row are all back in sites, but there are pull through sites if you need one. Don't miss the Mennonite family bakery just across the road from the campground. Wonderful breads and breakfast pastries. This is hilly country and the roads have narrow shoulders, so if you plan to bicycle in the area, be aware of this in advance. Except for the bakery, none of the attractions are within easy walking distance. We will trailer our motorcycle next time and explore all the local attractions more fully than we could in our RV. As first timers to this campground, we felt very welcome. We plan to return again in the spring.

We stayed in this park in 1987 when our old motorhome was new. Then in a condo while our kids were school aged. Now with a new rig we tried the campground and found it to be just to our liking. Lots of long-term residents, all very friendly. Easy beach access about 2 minutes by bike. Helpful very responsive staff. I mentioned that our sewer hookup was a few inches below the surrounding soil and that the connection threads were clogged with soil and within an hour the staff installed an extender and politely knocked on our door to notify me that they had fixed the connection. The park is located close to several nice restaurants and everything else on the island is an easy, level bike ride away. Paved bike paths go everywhere on Sanibel. My only problem is that the park prioritizes its long-term regulars (as I would if I owned the place) so getting a site for one week is hit or miss. But we loved the park and will try for another week or two next year.

Friendly staff. Great camp store with many items. Lots of nice roads in the campground for walks. If you do not get a site near the office loop, you may end up on the side of a hill. We had to put our levelers out all the way, lifting the front wheels of our motorhome off the ground to level the coach. All the motorhomes in our section were in the same predicament. We also had to drive over a half buried telephone pole to get into our site. These are used for rain washout protection on the hillside. Otherwise the campground was fine but we probably won't return.
