We have stayed at this park many times in years past and after several years returned again this year. Let me start by saying when we stay it is in one of the rental units as I am not much into the primitive camping.in previous years there were park models that we rented that were perfectly placed near one of the pools and near one of the lakes and we always loved that location and it worked great for our family of 5 . This year they had new "deluxe" park models so we went with one of those. While they were all nice and new inside, I felt they were smaller than the others and it was very difficult to do anything inside without waking up everyone else who may be sleeping. I also feel there were too many squeezed into the spot where they had them. We were literally deck to deck with the other park model, luckily it was the people we were camping with, but if it were strangers it would be very awkward. I think if we were to return I would go back the older park model, however the view of the lake by those is now blocked by a row of cabins.
All of the kids had fun of course. We were located by a pool and the water slides and several large open areas where the kids could play ball. They enjoyed the movie outside at night. While the kids had fun, it just seems to me there is a slight lack of upkeep on things compared to years past. The mini golf could really use a little work but I will say the pool by us was good. The family that was with us did rent one of the over priced golf carts and everyone enjoyed riding that into the outback area. I did not go, but they said it was pretty cool out there with all the trails. All in all it was fun for the kids but I feel like it could use a little TLC.
