We (self, wife, dog) stayed here in travel trailer 3 nights in late April. Not crowded so plenty if space albeit the sites are not long enough for truck and trailer nor mist units I would imagine. Owners are very accommodating tho and allowed us to park truck on adjoining site. They were still in winter mode so limited facilities... More

My family and I are still currently staying at the park. We have met some wonderful people and made new friends since staying here. It's also kid friendly and pet friendly. I would stay here anytime. The manager and staff are awesome.

We selected this RV park due to it's online description and wifi service. When we arrived we were taken to a site that was extremely tight, we just barely got in and were very concerned about getting our 5th wheel out of the site when we left. We have a 27 ft. 5th wheel, hardly a huge rv. Luckily, there... More

Everyone was very friendly. We didn't have an RV so they made sure to place us in a spot next to the bathhouse. The price was less than half what the local KOA offered us and they had great WiFi. KOA said they had WiFi on their web page, but when we asked they told us it rarely worked. I... More

Clean restrooms, decent showers, good location and very nice people. They went above and beyond to help us have a great experience. Spaces are a little tight for large RVs but covered picnic tables at each spot are nice.

The Happy Holiday Resort Campground is less than desirable. The sites are very difficult to get a large motorhome into. They over inflate their rates for special events. Other facilities are ok. For the cost, it was just not worth the pricel

We came last-minute at a busy time, and because of some confusion, the lady ended up giving us a kitchenette unit for the same price as a regular one, with no fuss made over it. The room itself was OK. It was around the back, and very quiet, except for the A/C being a bit loud. It did have a... More

We'd made a reservation for the hotel months in advance as a one day break from camping. The motel is awful. Our room had garbage under the bed from the last occupants, the road noise was LOUD, the wifi didn't work, people smoked freely outside their rooms which somehow got sucked into our room through the AC, the shower was...
