Watch out for the wildlife! As a camper without a motorhome, I normally cook and eat happily outdoors using the supplied table. However, at this campground it is not really safe to cook or eat outdoors after dark. The raccoons will approach your table and, for lack of a better word, attack for your food. So get your cooking and eating done before dark, and move ALL your food and even your ice chest inside your vehicle. All garbage must be disposed of before dark, too.
Also, on my most recent visit I encountered trouble with the pay showers -- the water went completely ice cold after about three minutes and it was nothing to do with the large amount of money I put in. I did not feel that staff were particularly responsive.
