We stayed 3 nights in March 2008 and it was by far the worst camping experience we have ever had. There were only 2 showers open for ALL of the campers to use. We have visited this campground approximately 8 times over the last 4 years, and we have watched it become rundown over the last couple of years. We were there over the opening weekend for trout fishing and were very disappointed in the upkeep of the grounds and the facilities in general. The staff there is very rude as well. Don't bother renting a golf cart because they are pieces of junk. After attempting to repair our rental golf cart twice, they finally refunded our money.
