It's been a while since I visited, but I finally told myself I needed to leave a review. Firstly, the campground was absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained. We looked around in the area, and it was by far the most beautiful.
My young children (under 8) begged me to take them tent camping for months, and I finally caved. My main concern was how loud they would be. I didn't want to disrupt any neighbors, so I tried to find a campground with a site that was more private. Our primitive tent site was more than I could have asked for. It was down a hill and back in the woods, nestled between two creeks. We felt like we were all alone back there. It was very quiet and all we could hear was the water.
The owners and staff are super amazing too. During our stay, they were very accommodating, and always smiled and waved when they saw us. When I got home, I wrote an e-mail telling them how much we loved our stay and what I would like to see improved some. They promptly responded, thanking me for my feedback and explaining what they would like to do in the future. They even welcomed me to e-mail or call back for updates.
We went in the off season, so I cannot say what it's like when there are many people there. We will be returning as soon as it warms up this year though!
