The campground was not level. I believe there was little to no attempt to maintain the campground. The restrooms and shower facilities not maintained. Staff did not follow social distancing or other CDC guidelines.

Let’s see, had a really nice time here! No real complaints but rather improvements. First, great level site with tons of room. Not every site was level, but mine was, so that’s all that matters. Staff was very friendly and gave a nice wave whenever they drove by, even swung by after a rain storm to drop off some dry firewood! Thank goodness! Finishing pond was great for kids, the fish were tiny, but at least we caught some! We did one of the hiking trails which led to a high point to overlook the park. The playground had a bunch of big tires and a swing set! What could have made this 5 stars? A fenced in dog park (they did have a walk, but sometimes my dog doesn’t poop on a leash) would be great. Maybe it was my luck but I feel that there weren’t any big fish in the pond. I caught like 10 trout and they were all the size of my hand. Nothing major, but it’s something. Other than that, had a blast, some friends visited and hung out as well. It was very quiet at night as well. We also visited the bug museum. I think that if you camp their, the admission should be free, but I understand, gotta make money! Either way, can’t wait to come back again!

Main lake is dried up Our RV site was unlevel, the electric and sewer hookups were about 40 feet apart which made the hookup a little tricky No attempt to have gravel, just dirt sand and some gravel Playground not very nice

Just visited this place last week and was very disappointing to say the least. The sites were very uneven. I actually had to track down the camp host to pick up a used condom on my site!!!! When the host came to pick up the condom I asked her if she was going to use a shovel, she looked at me like I was crazy and said " It's only a condom" She did have a rubber glove on but it was still disgusting! This place is tired to say the least! You can easily tell which campers were permanent residents by the state of their rigs. If they actually invested money into this location, it "could" be nice. The shared power boxes are a joke! We had to go to the local Walmart at 9pm to get a power adapter as the 30 amp circuit I needed was already in use! I honestly don't know how this place survives! Be prepared to listen to the Army base blow up ordinance all night long too! I have been camping for over 20 years and this place is one of the worst places I have camped at. RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

This campground is exactly what’s needed for a fun camping experience. Don’t listen to the bad reviews, they are probably all just stuck up snobs that want everything catered to them. The campground was nice and close enough to the city, but still gave you a “wilderness feel.” They even are nice enough to have “camp hosts” drive around the campground and help with anything needed or deliver firewood. The campground wasn’t full but there were lots of people there, so not sure why someone said they didn’t see anyone, they must need glasses. We were in a pickle and needed a place to set up our tents after our last campsite fell through. Golden eagle was kind enough to accept walk ups and was very helpful when we were checking in. Pricing is not bad and we wish we would have stayed at the campground for our whole trip. Highly recommend!!!
