We camped here with our 8 and 5 year old boys! They were in heaven! They played dodge ball nightly and loved the BMX park! This is a very family friendly campground! Pluses were the weekend happy hour!! We loved that they use essential oils to keep bugs away instead of chemicals and we NEVER had a bug issue the... More

Just got back from family weekend camping. Nice campground with tons of sites. Staff is friendly and there are things going on throughout the day. Kids won't be bored. Good to know is that a shower will cost you .50 cents to start for about 5 1/2 mins - so hurry. They have a nice general store, golf cart and... More

This is a very family-friendly campground with an awesome camping vibe! It is a very large private campground. The amenities for kids are great: heated pool, organized nightly dodge-ball and volleyball games, big playground, dirt bike trails, snack shack and ice cream bar. It didn't get dark until 10:00 at night and when it did...the campfires were crackling, most campers... More

Stayed in a park model cabin. Cabin was clean, roomy and very comfortable. You have to bring your own bedding and towels, but otherwise, cabin was stocked with everything you need. Our cabin had 2 bedrooms and a kitchen/living room combo. Large TV with cable. Had a toaster oven with 2 burners for cooking and a microwave. All the luxuries... More

First site we were given did meet our requirements. There were accommodating and moved us to another site. Entire camp site was covered with cigarette butts, metal bottle caps and old water balloons which all had to be picked up before the children could play. They advertised both cable TV and internet, neither of those were working the weekend of... More

We rented the "deluxe" cabin. I think the "deluxe" was that it had running water/shower and heat. Since we went during the off-season we got a pretty good price per night ($75). The cabin was cute and in pretty good condition. It has a shower and toilet in the very small bathroom with a mirror but no sink. The only... More
