We only stayed one night but hope to stay longer next time. Picnic table under roof for each site, lots of full hookups, nice pool for the kids to let off steam. People were very nice. Close to attractions. Of course this means some road noise but that didn't bother us.

We stayed at Happy Holiday campground while others in our party stayed in some of the 12 cabins. Cabins: register at the motel, not the campground. Although both locations seem to share the same amenities--registration, etc. are separate. This is the first of the things that made me wonder but, i will get to that. The cabins have 2 queen...

We stayed in the hotel part for 4 nights. It's not fancy but the beds were comfortable and everything worked. The best part about this hotel was the people. Every one I talked to was super nice and very helpful. The kids loved the pool and playground area. We will definitely stay here again!

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.
