We stayed here for five nights; originally three, but was so nice we extended it for two more. Very clean, quiet, friendly and nice. The Security / Host is very friendly and helped us back into our site after sunset. There are a lot of semi-permanent rental sites with very high end RVs; nothing like some private campgrounds that allow people to live in decrepit RVs year round. This is a high-quality place here and we will be back. They are building an RV expansion area as well. There is a nice, small playground for the young kids. It is a very pet-friendly environment. There are two small sandy beaches that my boy loved playing at. The mulch and gravel piles set up the hill for construction were and added bonus "play-site" as well for my little construction worker. This place seems geared for the boater types that keep their RVs here on semi-permanent rental sites, but there are short-term sites as well. There is a restaurant on-site but we didn't visit it. If it had a breakfast we probably would have.
