I stayed a night in "Cottage" 35 in early January. I put cottage in quotes, because these units were actually more like a motel than a cottage - there were 5 or so units in a row, all attached. Saying that, I didn't hear any noise from the unit next door. The cottage was quiet, dark and a good distance... More

I came very late during christmas time looking for a place for 3 days. I was lucky that they still had a cabin for me and i was very happy with the cabin. I didn't know this resort and i was surprise of what was on this large site. You have many options and all those options seems very good.... More

Stayed here over the long weekend. Was well worth the price! Had a lovely apartment- suite for a great price with all amenities. There's an onsite pool, playground, and mini golf for kids and adults to enjoy. The office has a well- stocked convenience store and is open reasonable hours. There's also and RV campground onsite. Clean, quiet, easy to... More

Right near the road, as long as you dont pay too much its good value for money. Pool and water slide for small children, OK rooms not fancy but suitable for a short stay, not for a full week. Very very friendly and informative staff.

The prices are reasonable and the staff was friendly. Our actual camping site was not like a camping site at all. It was more like a gravel parking lot. The pool and mini golf was fun for the kids, next year I plan on booking with the campground next door and possibly using the amenities here, much nicer grounds down... More

She made sure our family was happy and set our trip off on a great start. We don't go on many trips, so we really appreciate all the staff's service well we... More

I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance and understood it must be cancelled five day before the arrival date or payment in full would be charged. What I was not advised was that full payment was processed on my credit card at the time the reservation was made. This should have been explained. When our plans changed, sent an... More

Absolutely disgraceful, smelly recycled dump. Paid over $200 for mid week stay. Oh but it has water slides and mini golf. Yup, more run down, dilapidated attractions. I have paid less for substantially more. This place is a disgrace and appalling to stay at. The extras don't come for free with the $200 room, thats more money. Are you kidding... More
