1st..the positives Electric didn’t fail & water pressure was reasonable. These negatives are true & fair IMO. The whole park is very uneven & extremely rutted. Some of this is due to recent heavy rain..however most is due to a lack of maintenance. Most of the 50amps are shared, which means someone is setting out their seating etc facing next doors poop pipe..thankfully not us this time. The sites are relatively even for the Jack’s..but not the seating areas, so up & down, that sitting with friends mean some are lower/higher in the same area..just laziness on levelling. If you have dogs be very aware of where you walk them. The whole site is completely overgrown & full of ticks, fleas & mosquitos. As we’re driving away I am yet again removing ticks from my labs..6 on one dog so far..& that is WITH tick protection. I am covered in mosquito bites too. After being on the road for the last 3 mths..+ previous trips around the country..I would say this is the worst park we’ve ever stayed at.

Although the campground is listed as "rustic", it was not well maintained as far as gravel (or should I say mud). The front sites were level, so not too bad when it rained, but as the sites went uphill, it was a mess. Deep ruts, not enough ground clearance to get in and out without scraping 2 inches into the dirt, and the owner simply said, it's a rustic mountain campground....what did you expect? They call the sites pull through and charge for that accordingly, but the sites are not conducive to bigger rigs. Want rustic? Go to the state park. I do not recommend this campground.

Will not come back here! First, camp host and hostess were very nice and we enjoyed visiting with them. This campground needs serious maintenance. There was no water in the “pond”, playground was a joke, broken picnic tables, sites so uneven people had an extremely hard time getting level. People did not obey the speed limit signs including the owners! Water pressure was horrible and the WiFi was a joke. Very expensive place for what you get - don’t need to come back.

The owner has been super nice and so has the workers here. Very kid friendly. Obviously no paved spaces. I mean you are on the side of the mountain so there is no way you could have a paved space here. Waking up to the beautiful view of the mountains as well as so much wildlife here is so soothing. This is a very family friendly park. The pond is stocked with very big trout. The kids loved fishing. I would definitely recommend this campground to anyone for wonderful memories to be made here.

No WIFI as advertised, lake has been drained by cut in the liner. they charge $7 to fish each day in the smaller lake. the worst campground I have ever been to. picnic tables are broken. this property has not been maintained for a long time. The State Park nearby is a better cleaner campground.
