My family and I would come here every year but will never return after the visit we had this weekend. We stayed in spot 418 with our trailer. The electrical box malfunctioned and fried our plug. It was night and we were hanging with our family in the next spot so luckily we witnessed it happen and were able to unplug in time. It started with a weird smell and then the power went off and back on. So my husband went to check the cord and discovered the damage. He unplugged it and the box was glowing red inside and plug was completely ruined. If we had been sleeping it absolutely could have caught fire. We flagged down a worker and showed him what happened, he said he would let the office know and they'd come to check it in the morning. The next morning.....nothing. tried calling...no answer. My mother in law drove up to the office to again state what happened and ask if anyone would be by. A few workers came over to fix the box and one was very rude! We asked about the damage to our plug and they said talk to management. Finally another guy arrived, told us it was on us and they were not responsible.....really? How am I responsible for their electrical box malfunctioning? They tried to say we were drawing too much power. Well then why didn't the breaker pop on their box if we were drawing too much? We had only been running the ac like every person in the park that weekend. Anyways the man then tried to offer us $20 to "make it right" my husband refused his money and we left, we will not return.

We had such a blast with our family. The campground was spacious between both our neighbors. Bathrooms were kept clean and stocked with paper. The grounds maintenance busted their behind working day in and day. Campers broke the water lines by accident twice and the staff quickly responded and didn't stop working until the issued was resolved. In addition, they notified us that bathrooms were going to be closed but provided onsite alternatives. Ants were an issue but Holly came right on over within minutes to apply the proper kid/pet friendly solution and didn't skip a beat in asking if she could offer any further assistance to make our visit enjoyable. Staying an additional night wasn't an issue and Scott helped us coordinate the reservation within minutes to a perfect location for our family.

Had a reservation here, 04-11-20 thru 04-15-20, which was subsequently cancelled due to Covid-19, understandable. My reservation was cancelled, on 03-17-20, by Rivernook Campground and in turn they refused to give me a refund for my stay stating that the cancellation occurred within their 14 day cancellation window therefore I was not entitled to a refund. After explaining to them I did not make the cancellation, they did, they were only willing to offer me a credit to be used within the year, which I was unable to commit too. I again requested a refund and the person I spoke with refused to offer me a refund. I was then contacted by another employee "Christian" who stated they would offer me a refund, but it could take between 6 and 9 months to receive my refund, UNACCEPTABLE. I then followed her instructions to email "Jami" with my reservation information in order to receive a refund. I have sent two emails, 04-07-20 and 04-21-20, since my reservation was cancelled and I have yet to receive a response or a refund. I called the campground on 05-07-20 and was told they are so back logged that they cannot issue refunds. Now no one answers the phones at the campground and no one returns phone calls. Needless to say it has now been 2 month since my reservation has been cancelled...NO REFUND...NO RESPONSE! I will NEVER camp here again! BEWARE OF TERRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES!!!!

Had neighbors not watching their kids letting them run and ride bikes threw our campsite. Parents loud music and partying till 3 am. Camp host told them to be quite a few times. They would just laugh and turn the music back up when they left. Nothing ever really got done .. Woke up to large amounts of their trash all over the place. The campground never did anything we ended leaving first thing in the morning. We have been coming up to this place for 10 years. Not sure if it has anything to do with the new owners but it appears she has no clue what she’s doing. We won’t be back. Worst camping experience ever !!!!

Worse campground ever had people haveing sex in the shower rooms while my 12 and 13 year olds were taking showers. Had a lady going to the bathrooms 5 or 6 time a day each time she would came out of the shower room and walk around the bathroom area naked in front of young girls that is very Inappropriate. Staff members said that she was allowed to do that and they were very rude about it . I warn anyone who has kids to never go to this campground it’s not a safe place for kids to be.
