My husband's family took him to camp at Compton Ridge and our children, who are now teenagers, have enjoyed going there since they were infants. Yes, the Sims family who initially owned the resort is no longer there and those of us who know them, still fill like we are at their home. They made us part of their family, and for that we are greatful, but change is inevitable. First off, the campground was sold to Legacy and the transition was not a good one. Our experiences, the year after the sale, were not pleasant. However, the current owner and the current managers, Roger and Heidi, have created a warm welcoming atmosphere again.
While things are not exactly the same as they once were, there are activities and special events to be involved in. The last two times we have visited the campground, everything was in beautiful condition. Today we made reservations to go back on Witchy Weekend and plan to go several times this summer. There is a cafe on the grounds now and the merchandise in the store is expanded, as well. If you haven't been for awhile, give the new management a chance. I'm sure the Sims family would want you to! If you've never experienced Compton Ridge, I'm sure you'll find it an enjoyable experience.
