We are starting camping with our young son and we use a tent. This "campground" looked fun with all the attractions and activities for kids, but it is not a "nature" experience. 95% of the campers are season renters in trailers, completely outfitted with decks and plantings. Most of the adults, albiet pleasant, were driving around in golf carts with drinks in hand. Our site was very exposed and we could see directly into the neighbouring trailers. One site had a commercial ice machine (!!) that kept us up all night, as with the loud, adults partying late into the night. The mini-golf course, recreation/games room and crafts for kids was great, but the fishing/boating pond was choked with weeds/algae. We spent very little time at the campground, as it was not what we were looking for and enjoyed Scarborough State beach. Very few bathrooms (as majority of campers there have trailers) and it was quite a walk to the toilet, especially with a toddler. Wished we had a golf cart, ha, ha. The staff were very pleasant and the store was well stocked. Only would recommend this place is you have a trailer and are into drinking more than nature.
