We were hoping to go during October for the decorations and Halloween fun, but ended up having to go the last weekend of September. We stayed in a cabin. It was one of the cabins with a queen and two sets of bunk beds, nothing else but an air conditioner. The cabin was very nice and perfect for the rainy weekend it turned out to be. The campground is very nice in and of itself.
A couple of things really turned me off from ever coming back. A couple of the attractions were falling apart. The onsite putt-putt course got me excited, but the holes borders were falling off, the cups were sticking out of the surface on a couple of holes, and the obstacles were in shambles. The game room was well stocked, but who has ever heard of 4 out of 4 pool tables and 3 out of 3 skeeball machines being "out of order". Even the Ms. Pacman wasn't working. The play ground had bottle caps in the sand.
The free fishing off of the peirs was a nice benefit. Also the bike rentals were reasonably priced. The paddle boats were fun and I could imagine in summer would be fun to go through the fountain with them. the bathhouse was clean and the water was perfect in the shower. I could imagine during peak seasons that they would get a bit messy in the mornings since they clean once per day for an hour and a half.
Overall, the short mini-vacation was fun and the kids had a blast. But for the state that the amenities were in, it won't be on our list of things to do in the future.
