Chose this site on-line as a place to visit on our way back home. It was wonderful!! The wooded lots are gorgeous and private. Sites and amenities were clean and well maintained. Unfortunately we could only stay two nights as big Halloween plans were taking over the park but we loved every moment we were there. Had a site way... More

Had a great time at Rip Van Winkle! From checkin to checkout everything was top notch! Robyn was very helpful. We stayed the end on August down on the River Edge. Clean bathrooms, awesome watering hole, bouncy slides (for adults too)! Nice size site right on the water. You are camping with RV's but you're not on top of each... More

This is the cleanest, friendliest and BEST campground we ever stayed at!! The staff was very friendly and the bathrooms and showers are superb. They also have a cute little decorated truck that delivers ice cream, ice and firewood right to your site!! Looking forward to our next visit there in the Fall:-))

Haven't been here in years but it was as nice as I remember. Very nice grounds, clean bathrooms and friendly staff. Grounds were peaceful after quiet hours and other campers were very friendly. Highly recommended campground, we will be back.

Lots of trees! Our site was back next to the creek which was an added treat! There are some full time residents in the front area scattered about which appeared to be fairly well maintained. All roads were gravel inside the camp so be prepared for so road dust. The 5mph speed limit helped to control any annoying clouds; not... More

We stayed for 4 nights and for the second time had a blast. Campgrounds are very clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist any way they can. The sites are very shaded by tall trees so there isn't much sunshine. The pool and arcade were a nice feature and the kids spent a lot... More

We liked it so much we've already booked another weekend. Bathrooms were spotless and far above the normal campground bathrooms/bathhouses. The grounds were very well maintained, the staff was very visible, helpful and nice. No noise issues at all. LOVED the truck that drove around with firewood! Our only "complaints", which were actually just minor inconveniences, were that the bathrooms... More

Definitely one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed at in 30 years of camping! Our site was large, wooded, and private, everything we had asked, check in was quick and the staff was friendly and well informed, the location was easy to find and close to the places we wanted to go, the campground was exceptionally clean and well...

We stayed in the group campsite over July 4th weekend. The site is clean, the staff is friendly. Our problem is that the neighboring group campsites were too loud after quiet hours. They blared music, talked and shouted at night, partied until after 12 every night that we stayed. We complained several times to the main office. Throughout the night... More
