Our group rented 8 cabins (7 one room & 1 two room). All but the one 2 room cabin had to be bombed & or cleaned top to bottom for rodents and insects. The 7 cabins were filled with mouse droppings, roaches, mice, spiders and silverfish. We were planning on having a pleasant vacation with family and friends but the first 3 hours of our stay were spent removing mattresses and cleaning from top to bottom. There were boards underneath the mattresses that were covered in black mold (those were tossed outside and not brought back in). The picnic tables were literally falling apart and since there is no level area on the sites you always feel like you are falling forward, backward or to the side. At least two of the cabins had large burn holes inside of them.
The website advertises a pool, hot tub, fishing pond, mini golf, game/ TV room, and a waterslide but the only accessible recreation was the pool, which at initial appearance looked clean until you got in it. I took my family to the pool and once I got in I noticed the pool floor was dirty, the skimmers did not appear to be functioning and once I saw a "lugger" pass by I was done with that! The fishing pond is not accessible for anyone with children or with any type of disability or disease that affects walking (which we had two in our group that suffer with balance due to injury & disease).
The rest room facilities are dirty and run down. There is a sign that says restrooms cleaned from 11am-noon but even after the gentlemen went in to clean the women's bathhouse it was still dirty, so those in our group had to dump bleach all over the showers before using them. the sinks had the same dirt, bugs and grime in them on Sunday as they had on Friday when we arrived. There were no toilet seat covers even though the boxes were on the wall. The shower curtain looked as if it has been there for years and one of the restroom doors didn't even have a latch on it (leaving only 2 toilets to use).
I am seriously considering contacting a lawyer for false advertisement because this place was a complete waste of money and full of misleading advertisements, not to mention was the ruin of our once a year vacation.
Every year our family takes a camping trip as our vacation. Without a doubt this was the worst experience we have ever had and a huge disappoint to all of us.
