I stayed with my 2 small children and the lake was great. The owners not so great. There was an outbreak of swimmers itch while we were there. My daughter was hosing off, like she was told, and the owner yelled at her for "playing with the hose". The owner also pestered one of the other guests several times about...

We came to Poplars with no idea of what to expect. When we arrived we were pleasantly suprised. The units have TV w/ cable, WiFi, an in room air conditioner, stove top, grill, fridge/freezer, and more.

The cabin my family and I stayed in for the week was adequately stocked with the basic kitchen items and it was mostly clean besides some rather large cobwebs behind the tv/entertainement area.

The bottoms of our socks were black after walking on the carpet, cobwebs in the corners, dirty dishes in the cabinets & dirty cabinets. We had to bring our own sheets which is a good idea because we found out on the last day that they don't...

The resort is right on the lake and close to town. The bad part is that the resort itself has not left the 1980s yet! Most of the resort is in desperate need of a remodel! The game room has the latest technology of 1975! You are paying for conveniance, not ammenties!

Rooms are clean and owners are friendly. A great place to bring your family for a holiday weekend.
