We stayed in the campground, so I cannot comment on the cabin rentals at this resort.
Pros: The swim beach was one of the best we've ever used in the Midwest. The water was clean and clear. The beach was nice and sandy. They had many things for kids to do in the water such as little boats they could ride in and pedal with their hands, a huge inflated slide and a huge water trampoline. The kids had an absolute blast in the water. The playground had nice equipment which was in good condition. There were many other things to do such as horseshoes, volleyball and shuffleboard. They even provided sand toys for the kids. Every evening they had a hayride with actual hay. The hayride was also lengthy in duration and scenic. Much better than most hayrides. The grounds were clean. We had a nice view of the lake from our campsite. The owners were pleasant and friendly. They gave us directions to different places we visited. They squeezed us in with short notice on a busy Labor Day weekend when our previous campground flooded.
Cons: There are two public showerhouse facilities. One is newer and is located closer to the lake inside a larger building. This one was really nice. However, this was a one-stall unisex facility, and was therefore usually occupied. The main showerhouse was horrible. It needs a new roof and new siding. I hoped the inside would be better, but it wasn't. The showers and faucets dripped and ran when turned off, there were curtains instead of doors on the toilet stalls and the whole place was in major disrepair. The second problem we had was nighttime noise. The majority of campsites are seasonal. Therefore, everyone knows everyone else and they all gathered every night around a common fire pit. We're talking 30 people drinking, being loud, singing and playing the guitar until midnight or later every night. There was another group in a different section using Roman candles. Finally, there was only one garbage dumpster that we could find and this was quite a distance from our campsite.
Even though we enjoyed the facilities, the nighttime noise and the fact that they take very few short-term campers means that we probably won't stay here again.
