Second visit in two years… The park had just changed management and there was a high level of turmoil in the office and in the park… Seems old management did not believe in empowering employees to make decisions and all decisions had to be run by one person… not very effective nor conducive to good customer service. New manager appears... More

The staff was very nice. The wifi was hit or miss...mostly miss. I didn't have anything stolen but campers around me did. (coolers was what i heard) It is possible that i would go back if i were given another chance. The person that camped next to me was very rude to me. I'm trying not to base my opinion... More

Our camp space had no water and electricity; no sewer connection or cable which was OK because our rate was less expensive; however, it was not easy to dump when we left Happy Holiday this Morning. There are two dump stations. To use one of them requires blocking the road. The other dump was impossible to use because a Happy... More

We camped here over Labor Day weekend in 2012 and 2013. We enjoyed our stay both times! The campground was very busy, with lots of other families and pets. This year, they were also hosting a fundraiser for the Shriners, which provided music, food, raffles, etc. for the entire weekend. They do have a pool, but our kids didn't use... More

This campsite is very crowded and very active. They did give us the option of 3 spots when I said I didn't think the original one they gave us would work with our dogs (by the entrance and lots of traffic/cars, campers and walkers). We just returned home today. Unfortunately, Ga and SC were playing football on Saturday and there... More

I like this campground very much with just a couple of suggestions. We stayed out by the frisbee golf course right on the stream. This is away from most of the other sites with bad wifi and no cable. I wouldn't have had it any other way. Very peaceful. Very well maintained park with good live music some nights. The... More

We stayed at Happy Holiday Campground for four nights at the end of June. From the moment we set foot on the property all staff members were polite and extremely helpful. Our site was excellent and the views were exceptional. There were activities for the kids to do daily, and the pool/splash pad was clean and well kept. The live... More

Not sure how I feel, I do know if it weren't for Tim my husband may have lost his mind, this place is ok, its prices are what they are, you are paying for what you get. If you want to be entertained and have lots of things to do , want to wash or dry you clothes, this place... More

Be aware that if you are handicapped that you will be discriminated against in this campground. The management is extremely rude and very unprofessional. After many years of coming to the yearly Bluegrass Festival held each June and having the same camping site I am now being denied this site. The management refuses to take my deposit for next year...
