We rented a Lakeside camp site for $52 a night and was very unsatisfied when we got to the site to see where we would be pitching the tent. This site had no grass and was just half inch thick dust - dry soil type! This was a pain with 2 young kids. We went back to reception to ask if we could move to a different site but was told nothing was available that wasn't in a similar condition.
We also found the previous tenants hadn't bothered to pick up a lots of dog poop that had obviously accumulated over time.
We ended up staying for 2 nights and even that was too much. We couldn't wait to get out of there.
The bathrooms were dirty and inadequate for the number of people who stay there. They charge $2 for 5 minuted and you have to purchase tokens from the general store.
The general store is very expensive with a very limited choice of items for purchase.
The boat rentals are very expensive and the boats are in poor condition.
No Wi-Fi or cell service at the site!!!
Expensive firewood service.
We woke up on the second morning to find they had coated the site roads with a foul smelling substance that sticks to your car when you drive over it. Apparently, the substance is sprayed on the roads to keep the dust down? I went to the general store to enquire what was this stuff they had put on the roads without telling anyone what to expect. The young kid told me "it's only sap, it will wash off easily." When we got home, we found out it doesn't wash off easily. Actually the foul smell is still evident and we had to leave the vehicle outside the garage.
I honestly can't believe this place is so popular!
If you're going to stay here, I would go and check out the place first if that's feasible. It may not be what you're expecting!
