First let me start out with the postive of this resort. The only one is its location. Tent camp sites are right on the lake.
However, upon check in we were given a list of over 15 rules. Yes, this is bear country and some rules are needed. However, they have a rule for everything! You are not allwoeed to pull your kayak on the shore, walk your dog along the lake (even on a leash with a doggy bag in hand), even skipping rocks into the water is against the rules! I kid you not. My child's grandpa was teaching my son the art of skipping rocks and we were told we would be kicked out if we didn't stop. Mind you no one was going to get hurt. We were 200 yards from the swimming area. Which is another rule. Only can swim in the designated beach area. My son broke a rule by wading in the lake in front of our tent site. Did they forget that families come here to have fun. Yes, because the owner came over to tell us to keep it down (at 2:00 in the afternoon). We were having to much fun. She wasn't kidding! What were we doing you might ask?, Yup, you guest it. Making crafts at the picnic tables with our children!
The other negative is the shower/bathrooms. The ladies have only two shower stalls that were not very clean. The two toilets have a sign to "Please hold down to flush for 20 seconds." Not once was the toilet flushed upon entering. You can imagine the smell.Since there were only two showers we had to shower at odd times of the day in order to shower at all. You think they would have a rule about cleaning the bathrooms!
