This is really a resort where you bring your own room, so to speak.
It has some nice landscaping, and everything was impeccably clean, but it felt like I was camping at Disneyland.
Yes, as per the other reviews there are amazing amenities!
There are multiple pools, hot tubs, a beach, sail boats, planned activities, a camp store that is better than many small department stores, they deliver firewood to your site, shuttles to the Zoo etc., It reminded me of a cruise ship, but with camp fires and s'mores.
It's a great place for large, possibly loud, family gatherings. The kids can play at any number of attractions while the parents relax. It is outdoors, and the climate is great.
The other guests were having a great time, and for many this may be the ideal camping experience. It is well maintained, well run, and very clean.
For us, it wasn't quite right. We aren't hard-core back-country campers, but we felt a bit like we were camping at a mall or amusement park.
