I took the family tent camping this past weekend. I was a little skeptical after reading some of the previous reviews but, with the threat of rain in the forecast as well, we took the chance. I am so happy we did! 1st the attendants were young and in training but they kept their cool and their smiles through the registration process. Getting to our campsite was very easy as all the roads had signs except Violet (our road!) but someone from an adjacent campsite was kind enough to help and showed me the ropes! We were on Buttercup 24 but the good Samaritan informed me that 23 was a little bigger. Next time I will request that site. Either way the site was a good size, had good shade, and had the necessary electrical and water outlets. My children enjoyed the basketball and playground area.
The restroom was a little farther than I would like but they were clean and well maintained. The pools were outstanding! We loved the large pool and the varying depths. We couldn't dive head-first but cannonballs were OK! It could use some more pool chairs. My one year old had her first pool experience in the wading pool and she loved it! There was always at least one lifeguard at the wading pool and a couple at the large pool. The cabana bar was a cool hang-out and had a TV to watch the games.
I loved that the site had some activities for the kids such as sack races and nature walks. I did not get the chance to try the 9 hole but the rates were good at $10 for 9 hole, $15 for 18 and $25 for the weekend.
The staff was nice and considerate but what I really liked was the courteousness of the other visitors and regulars. My family and I always felt welcome.
My thanks to the staff, managers and owners for a wonderful time. Please keep up the good work. Being only an hour and 15 minutes from home I will definitely be a regular at Camp Coldbrook!
