We loved our stay at Happy Holiday. (2nd time) - Campsites are good sized - Big Rig friendly, but there are a few staff that are not "happy campers" on occasion. The pool was a bit small for the size of campground, but the camp store was well stocked (decently priced) but they ran out of ice when we were... More

We made a reservation to camp here but something came up that caused us to postpone. I notified the campground 4 days in advance of our reservation thinking we would receive a refund. I'm used to places letting you cancel up to 24 hours before your reservation. I reached out by email and phone but was not informed there would... More

We spent two nights at a cabin during Bluegrass Festival. Enjoyed being creekside, unfortunately it was also roadside too (lots of traffic). Bathroom/showers very old, but clean. Cabin was better than tent because of A/C. Beware......you are required to purchase tickets each night you stay during festival.

This place says the motto is pamper the camper. It is far from it. They are very rude and treat the campers horrible. We were to stay a month or so and left in 2 days. Please don't make the mistake we did. The Managers are hot headed and rude.

I have been going to this park for almost 20 years, but the one thing I will have to dislike is their "Wifi internet throughout park". This is a flat out lie! The wifi is terrible, we were there a week, and could hardly ever get on it. it was the same way 8 years ago when I last came.... More

Just stayed at the campground. Sites are large/oversized. Bathrooms and showers are nice. A lot of the sites are all grass/dirt. So if it is rainy, count on the sites on the creek being muddy. Wi-fi is dismal/awful. Camp management griped about the heavy use anymore by campers overloading their system. Get used to it. Its a mobile world out... More
