I had visited Nelson's for several years. Last year,I decided to become seasonal. I am happy to say that I love it here. My children and my grandkids love it as well. The staff is great,service is terrific and Michelle has been a great and polite person since my arrival. She and her staff have made our stay very pleasant.... More

The camp ground staff was great. Don't feel the bathrooms/ showers are adequate for the number of sites. Even though it was early in the season had to wait several times. Pond is a body of water full of plant life....fishing may be ok but no good for swimming and no shade to speak of. Kids activities leave a lot... More

We rented a trailer at Nelson's for our first weekend in a trailer camp to see what it was like. Well it wasn't good. As soon as you open the door to the trailer you could smell mold. When we went inside we found a big wet stain on the carpet and big black ants in the refrigerator. That was... More

We have been seasonal campers at Nelsons Campground for 8 years and couldn't be happier. Our grandchildren have "grown up" here and our children have been coming here for over 20 years. The campground is clean with lots for the kids to do on the weekends. To anyone out there that thinks running a place this size is easy I... More

We live locally but camp here on the weekends. We have been very pleased by all aspects of this campground. Sites and grounds are clean, level and fairly large. Staff is polite and helpful. Activities are frequent on the weekend for the kids. . See you soon!

So Far.....So Good.... Staff seems great, Michelle seems great, people seem great. I think there was a group of unhappy seasonals that trashed the place online, not fair... I will follow up at the end of the season. I must say, Michelle is all business and with A campground of this size you have to be, and that's what we... More

We were at this campground for only one night, just traveling through. Not crowded in September. Huge park with lots of grass and trees, level site, plenty of room to maneuver a motorhome with a tow vehicle. Sites were roomy enough and we have fencing and dogs. It was late so we ordered pizza delivery and it was the best... More

Gustines RV rip off the seasonal Campers and weekenders, and are the rudest people. Not worth coming to this campground. Michelle and Bruce are just plain rude to you even if you camp there for years!!! They do not care about anyone, just money hungry people!!! Very sad really, it used to be a nice place to camp !!

My fellow RVers, The campground has become nasty!, Recreation activities are below average, the clientele is substandard, The pool is extremely dirty, you cannot take a swim without having an enormous amount of someone else’s hair being all over you! ( Disgusting !) If you want to torture your family, be humiliated, demeaned, swim is a unsanitary pool and have... More

We recently bought a 5th wheel from their RV store knowing it was “AS IS” but we had a few problems with it and their staff took care of everything without a complaint. I back this statement upon the fact that in every case no matter where the location, every Nelson’s employee we had contact with displayed the single-minded philosophy... More
