We reserved our campsite for the week of July 4th almost a year in advance. When we arrived, we were told that the rates were raised by over $100. Staff's explanation was "we reserve the right". When we presented the email confirmation that listed our balance due, we were given the same response.
We were meeting 2 other families there and asked if we could switch sites to be next to them. We were told absolutely not, the sites are reserved. The site we wanted to switch to had no one r 3 days and 2 different campers for the next 3. Our space was 100 yards away and we had no one next to us for 3 days. Switch could have been made easily, especially after hitting us for the extra $100.
Bathrooms were a horror story, people say it's understandable with the large crowds, I do not agree. After gouging everyone that drove in for a week, how hard would it be to add a few temp staffers to powerwash (15 minute job) the rooms once a day???
I will never visit this place again!
