If you post rules for a "Family" campground, enforce them. Teens throwing rocks ftom one side t9 5ge other towards people. Pre-teen yling fbombs, 3 adults jumping simultaneously on an 8 yr old girl without apologizing. Same group the park had ask to rurn done their rap. Yet, management did nothing for the patrons that were respectful, and be violated.... More

$35 to tent camp for families of 4. $5 each additional person. When its slow you can camp pretty much wherever a tent spot is. Sad thing is there are less and less tent spaces every year. $5 for 30 min on waterslide. $10 for the day. Never done it. $5 for a tube for the day. But I always... More

Being told that they didn't allow people like us to camp there made me ask myself what did they mean by "people like us"? My husband, our children and another couple thought we would try to camp at Steele Creek Park since none of us had been since we were younger and we were wanting our children to experience the...

Most of the sites are decent at best. The better sites are occupied by permanent travel trailers that are in terrible shape. Wouldn't let a dog I hated stay there. Place has potential but the rude staff overshadows what could be a good campground.

Absolutely love SCP & love the freezing water on a hot summer day. We've been camping here for over a decade & look forward to many more years to come. Our kids have enjoyed swimming, riding bikes & making new friends each year. We love the dance on Friday and Saturday nights with Mel the DJ. Then we enjoy some... More

A wonderful place to camp and enjoy nature. You can swim, wade in the creek, fish, play mini golf or just relax by a campfire. We enjoyed the peace and serenity of nature while staying here. Other attractions are near by if you want to venture out from the campground.

I have been to many campgrounds in my lifetime including primitive camping and national parks and this one is definitely the best! The people who work there are consistent and work extremely hard. The campground itself is nestled in the woods with a creek that runs throughout. If you don't like a lot of people then through the week is... More

If you like over crowded and unorganized campgrounds, this is the place for you! Unreliable power on the loop we were on, main breaker tripped at least six times the first hour we were there. Their solution, set a fan up to cool off the breaker. The staff was not very helpful or friendly. The swimming area was very crowded... More

I'm disappointed in the management at the Steele Creek Campground. Two of my friends and I rode our motorcycles 81 miles one way to see this campground. We were planning on camping here this fall. Arriving at 11:00am Friday morning, the young man at the gate was very nice, but said they didn't like people to ride through on busy... More
