Came for a week with my son, the whole place changed. There are now barely any campsites for tents, it’s mainly RVs and rentals/houses. The few tent sites they have are small and inconveniently placed. Firewood is overpriced and burns way too quick. I used to come here since I was a baby, but I don’t think I’m coming back anymore. Some nosy campers calling authorities thinking they’re “doing the right thing” when someone yelled at their child to stop throwing sand everywhere 🙄 like, seriously? If people have a problem with how other people handle things within their family, then they should keep to themselves because it’s literally none of their business! People have changed, this place has changed, and not for the better 👎🏻

I love FLB. My family loves FLB. Always have a great time. The entrance off Volo village road is awful. Worse than ever, damn near torn the axels off my trailer.
I mentioned it to Rob, the manager, and was told to use the other entrance in a rather snarky manner. I prefer the Volo village entrance because I can turn left at the stop light. It's a safety thing. FLB should take that into account, campers may be safer turning left at a stop light while pulling their trailer.
FLB would be 5 stars all day every day if the drive was fixed and Rob wasnt such a jerk all the time. Every year his cocky attitude seems to get worse, just like the entrance drive. Oh well. I will be back next year for sure, I still love the place.

Not what I hoped for. Campsite was not ready for us with previous camper debris left around. Dumpsters piled high and spilling over, recycle bins full of trash, dogs running loose, cars parked everywhere, broken sewer covers, loud people/music till midnight, rv washing, etc. Rules obviously are not enforced and grounds are not maintained. Management, based on other reviews, has fallen in recent times. Shame, it could be nice.

Do not camp here. It is obvious who is welcome. We made a reservation and had to cancel to due Rig issues and being stuck in another state. We cancelled before the penalty and we were not refunded our full amount even though we cancelled before their policy requirement. When i called to get clarification the female was extremely nasty and condescending when i asked about their policy.... Oh, and then she hung up on me. You would think i called, cursed, berated them the way she talked to me, but during these racially charged times Im sure they are happy we cancelled. We will take our black brown cream red skins and spend our GREEN money somewhere where we’ll be respected and treated as valued customers. We’ve been to camps like this before and we were harassed so I’m sure we saved ourselves by not staying here since I’m sure they would have had a problem with everything we did, as most racist business do. They like to berate POC when they don’t want them there... but first they take our money.

Beware of investing your money in park model trailers located in this park. You are not protected as there are no leases and no contracts that legally protect your right to occupy one of their lots. They only provide you with a seasonal permit that grants you the "revocable" and "terminable" permission to keep your trailer on their lot. I went to sell my trailer through their trailer sales and during negotiations the owner literally threatened and bullied me by telling me he could pull my trailer off my lot and out of the park at my expense anytime and for any reason. Additionally he told me he could decide not to renew my permit at his discretion. That he had no legal obligation to let me stay there, even long enough to sell my trailer. It was a complete nightmare. They have it set up where they have 100% legal power over your investment. Do yourself a favor and look at other parks that have lot ownership or lot leases that protect you.

We've been going to FLB every year since 2011 and I dread it more every time but it's the only option for that area. My dealings with the staff have always been very positive but that lake is just a big 'ol mudhole. On our last trip sewage backed up behind our camper. It was a problem for 3 days, they worked on it every day, and I did receive a refund for those days. It seems people are more disrespectable everywhere now and this place is no exception. Teens run wild with no supervision, property owners use the limited bathroom facilities which are a joke, the washing machines will leave rust spots on your clothes (probably wouldn't want to know what people wash in those machines), there is little to no grass @ the sites, and dogs are everywhere (on that note they are leashed). Whenever I've stayed there I feel like I'm in a Mad Max movie. The south has rednecks but northern rednecks have a really bad attitude. As populated as the area is one would think that there would be better options.

Nice campground with poor communication and amenities. I call because we arrived early and asked how early could I check in ? I was told someone was in my spot till 3 call back at 4 . Went there instead 2:30 someone took me to my spot. Woke up in morning with note on door electrical issues no electricity for 3 hours . Also no water for 9 hours main line broke. Paid $50.00 a site no electricity or plumbing. Will NOT be going back and want a refund! Talk to staff all they say is I’m sorry

Responded Jun 25, 2021
I'm very sorry your stay was impacted by a planned power outage that had to be solved quickly that morning. The break in the water line caused an unforseen disruption starting at 930a and that was resolved by approximately 330p. If you email us at camping@fishlakebeach.com your name perhaps we can resolve this to your satisfaction. Thanks.

This is our second stay at Fish Lake Beach and we’d come back again. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We called for our reservations since we’re here for two weeks. We were initially staying 3 weeks but had to change our arrival date as we had a death in the family. They were understanding. The escort to our site was helpful since we needed to back in our RV. We have a 32 ft Winnebago with two pop outs. Also love the site we got as it was the perfect size for our camper and left us plenty of space between us and our neighbors. WiFi and cable is not great, but I couldn’t care less since I’m here for the outdoor fun. We also travel with our two dogs and have no issue with the other pets around. I haven’t heard dogs barking all night or loud parties. It’s a fairly normal campground for families. I would highly recommend.

We have been going to Fish Lake Beach for the last five years. This time it was very disappointing. The first night we were there the people two campers away from us were intoxicated and they were yelling and screaming until 1:00am. There is one lifeguard at the pool but she does not pay attention to the children in the water. The bathrooms were disgusting and there is no ventilation in them so it's hot and humid and there is water on the floor. Not sure if we will be back next year

My wife and I have been helping friends open up their camper and visiting Fish Lake Beach for many years. Over the years coming here, it seems it is becoming increasingly trashy, and we do not mean dirty. The staff is rude; they act like they are doing you a favor. The place is crawling with drunks. They allow open alcohol while driving golf carts, which makes it unsafe to let the kids run around, even though all the kids are old enough to go on their own. The kids ask us why the adults are allowed to drive while drinking beer. The loud music and drunken stupidity after “curfew" are a joke. We come here to relax and have fun, not be blasted out of our site or feel uncomfortable that our children are unsafe. Also, seeing political flags at a "family" oriented place is a significant turnoff! Especially at a time when politics have become so divisive, volatile, and violent. I am a former Marine, and even I think it is in bad taste. People come here to “get away”, not be reminded of M-F. This will be their last season here.
