We liked this place however it does have it's flaws. The owner and his family are super friendly and if you learn the campgrounds history, when he bought it, it was in severe disrepair and he has busted his hump to make it better. There are kids movies, small and not so nice pool, lake looks clean but my kids... More

Where to start..... If you are expecting a campground to be wooded and a long curvy road back away from the main road this campground is not for you. We stayed in the redbud cabin and let's just say they twisted the truth so much online, I almost sucked up the $150 I spent for two nights and went to... More

I love it when people don't bring anything to our attention, but go out to a review site and twist the truth! If you truly felt the cabin was dirty, it should have brought it to our attention immediately and it would have been addressed. We would never want someone to have to sweep & Clorox our cabins after we... More

Took us about 40 min to get there; website showed good pictures of various activities. The pool needs cleaning, however We felt adventurous to try it. Beautiful view of the lake. Would not come again though. Will try to find another pool in logan area. By the way, pool was very cold.

My 3-year-old had such a wonderful time, he didn't want to leave. Even after checking out today, he wanted to run back into the store to tell Mr. Carlson that he had fun at his campground! We arrived just after a storm to a brilliant rainbow literally leading us to Happy Hills. What an omen. As we brought our toddler... More

We came to the area to ride ATV's in the national forest and stayed here. We have a camper and others in our party were in a tent. Campground is nice, well wooded and has gorgeous views down the mountain. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. There were many families staying in tents around us. The bathhouse is adequate, it... More

We stayed at Happy Hills this weekend and really enjoyed it. The facilities are clean and well-cared for. The owners/operators are always on the property, accessible, and friendly. The atmosphere is a family-friendly place, so I felt comfortable letting my kids do things like run to office by themselves to rent bikes and get ice cream. We enjoyed the swimming... More

We just stayed this past weekend. The owners were very friendly, nice, and customer service oriented. Friday night around 11:00pm they actually walked the campground to check up on things. We made some small talk and we mentioned that we were about to go to bed because we were running low on firewood. They told us to meet them at... More

We stayed here for Memorial Day weekend and the very next weekend too. Camp sites were nice and clean. There is a nice size lake (with crystal clear water) for swimming and fishing. They have built a man made beach in the lake. We did not use the bath houses as we have one in the camper, but what I... More

Outstanding place and owners. Family and friends stayed there last weekend and it was wonderful . We have owned several campers and have camped in numerous campgrounds and this is one of the best. The restrooms were nicer than any we have ever seen. The lake, and area in general, were very clean. The owners were very friendly and went... More

We stayed here for Memorial weekend 2014. The Website advertises a list of what seems to be attractive options. Lakeside beach (mud hole), Basketball court (parking lot w/ a crappy Walmart portable backboard), pool (small single family pool at a side property), bath house (I'll address this later), game room (four games, very basic)...the sites were adequate but the ground...

Just to address some of the comments. We have had a very rainy spring and it rained off & on the entire week before Memorial Day weekend, so that is why the ground was soft at the site and why this person thought the beach was a mud hole, which is impossible because you can't make mud with sand.
