I have never been conflicted before when writing a review but this time I have struggled with what I am going to say. If I had to rate the park on facilities I would give it 5 stars. It is a beautiful park and very well maintained. As for our personal experience there I would have to give it a... More

This is an excellent RV park. The staff is very efficient. The grounds are in excellent condition. We were impressed with the overall operation. The facilities are well maintained and very clean. The location is great for exploring the adjacent cities. We will look forward to returning.

Been camping for 7 years as a family, and we had the worst experience last weekend at this "resort". I made my reservation and never got an email confirmation (they said one would be sent). I still arrived to check-in, but they were surprised I would check in "so late" - despite it being only 7pm. Then they would not... More

Pulling into this campground you would think it costs double what you are paying; it's so beautiful and clean. The office/store is well-equipped for those little things that you forgot to pack, and there is complimentary coffee and bottled water waiting for you. We booked for a week for two side-by-side sites, and our cost before discounts was under $250.... More

We stayed here for a long Memorial Day weekend . From the first time we just checked out the park 2 weeks previously til the day we left on Memorial Day , every staff member and the owner were consistantly kind and friendly. They had a wonderful Memorial Day cook out by the heated pool and everyone was absolutely the... More

Can't say enough about how great this resort is. From the time we entered until we left, we were treated more like friends than just another camper. This has to be one of the cleanest, friendliest and well cared for campground that I have experienced. It ranks right along side of one of my other favs. But this one has... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Everything is so nice and clean. Plenty of things to do in the campground and in the area. The workers are an excellent group of people. The owner visits with everyone. Very large sites, plenty of room between campers and what a view. If you're in the area, stop and stay awhile.

My first impression of this campsite is how well loved it is. The grounds are very well maintained and the mountain views are spectacular. My parents stayed in their RV and my husband and I stayed in the cabin and we all loved it! We had dinner on the huge porch every night and would take in the beautiful sunsets.... More

This is a very nice campground, which the owners are diligently working to further improve. Pool, restrooms/showers, and clubhouse are extremely clean and well maintained. Laundromat and restrooms were superb. The sites are close together and trees are not yet mature enough to provide shade. Our gravel surface site was almost level. Propane refill was quick. As the landscaping matures... More
