First of all, they really squeeze people in there. There isn't much room between you and your neighbor. They don't enforce rules regarding being quiet at night. It's hard to sleep there. And it isn't very clean. Go to Hickory Grove instead.

We booked over the phone and have to admit I didn't check out the reviews. Not sure that would have changed my plans anyhow. We arrived after dark on a Friday evening and the check in staff was very nice. After a restless night sleep we were awaken by the farm animals just on the other side of the swimming... More

My family recently stayed at the campground while visiting nearby family. I read the reviews which weren't very good but decided to try it out ourselves. We really had a nice time. There are many permanent sites but everyone was so friendly and so helpful. The kids enjoyed swimming the lake and going down the waterslide. There were very few... More

When I called to make a reservation for full hook up I got the Corky run-around. She was not available and would call back. She never called back! During the third call in 4 days I asked if Corky was on vacation and was told she was "very busy!" I said I'd take a Electric and Water site. Reservation completed... More

Love, love, love this place! Located right off the highway (easy to find, and white noise at night), the full time residents ride around in their golf carts and stop to chat with anyone interested in a chat..... Friendly folks, great place to walk, golf course next door, basketball court, lake for swimming or non motorized boats, fishing, on site... More

We stayed with family and friends and found this campground to be nothing like previous reviews that we had seen posted here. Yes there are a lot of seasonal / permanent campers but we found them to be pleasant and helpful. The office staff were helpful answering questions and the store area was well stocked. The beach was clean and... More

We reserved this based off their website. After reservations were made, I found the reviews here on TripAdvisor and became a little nervous. We went ahead and tried it and it wasn't that bad, but it's not that great. Reserving was easy and they were very helpful as we were meeting with another camper and we wanted spots together. No...

I am normally a trip advisor reader before I stay most places. Not sure why I didn't look here first for reviews about this page. My first clue should have been that the web page for this place only has picutres of decorated golf carts. They make it sound like a wonderful place to stay from looking at their page.... More

Where to start.. Very noisy as it is right on Hwy 30. All you hear are big trucks keeping you awake at night and the train too. The day we moved in they told us what lot to go to, never did drive us to our spot. Our hook up pole was being used by another camper and so we... More

the OWNER is very rude for being a businessman - if you say anything about the campground, which there is many complaints, he will tell you to pack up - your camper has wheels, very very rude, unless you are partying with him and giving him drinks you are his best buddy....as we saw.. not courteous to his customers....tells us...
