While the campground was very well kept, the sites were very tight. They were also not level. This mattered to us as we are a 5th wheel only spending the night so did not unhook. Everything was going down hill. The spaces had just enough room for the 36 foot 5th wheel and our long bed, double cab pickup. If... More

Showers were okay, but very little water pressure. Not very many items available in the "store", compared to most other RV parks. Wasp nest right beside the driver's door of our truck. We mentioned it to them but the wasps were still there when we left 2 or 3 days later. Not sure I would recommend.

The campground was very clean and nice. Not right on the highway so it was quiet and somewhat wooded. Had trouble getting a reservation due to the state fair, but they got us in. Didn't have the best site, but only because it was crowded. There were lots of nice spots and seemed to be a great family place. Nice... More

My husband and I stayed here August 10-14. I was leery about staying here because of the bad reviews. Although I do agree with some of the items in some of the reviews, I do think they are a bit harsh and by all means, would recommend this campground to anyone. Making the Reservation: When I made the reservation, the... More

I made our reservation before I read the other TA reviews. After reading them, I was very leery but we had a great experience. The campground was lovely, well maintained and Deb, our check-in person, was very nice. Sometimes, I think, people get what they expect. If you are looking for a good reception, you will get it and vice... More

I have only ever written two reviews, but this place was so AWFUL, I felt compelled to tell other helpless victims to stay away from this RV park! We have been Rving with a 38 foot 5th wheel for the past 3 years and have been to numerous parks across the US. That being said, I have NEVER had such... More

This campground looks great in the campground book (9/9.5/9), BUT the sites are really cramped, small and not very level. When we arrived about 3:00 in the afternoon there was a pre-printed sign on the office saying "back in 22 minutes or less." About 20 minutes later a woman arrived. There was no sorry to keep you waiting in the... More

We have been staying here three months now. After reading the reviews, I decided for the first time ever I would write my own.The negative reviews were very disheartening to me. But one comes to understand certain people cannot be made happy unless you toe very high line. These ones will continue to berate at the easiest opportunity. However, we... More

This place is a joke, sites to small and close together. Was told that I would have a level site long enough to accommodate my RV and car, wrong-wrong-wrong and the sites are not level. Don't waste your time or money.

We camped here for one night while on a road trip. The entire campground seemed to be partying aside from us. My kids heard more expletives in one night than they had in their lives. One camper set of a firework right by our site at 11:00 p.m. Staff came over to ask them to not set off fireworks but... More
