We arrived in a rainstorm. Camp people would not escort us to a site, as usual, because it was nearly empty. They just gave us a map and pointed down a long hill. We had our choice of many equally muddy sites—no gravel, no concrete bed, just mushy, muddy ground. The campground offers no WiFi and the 3/4/5G network doesn’t know about Latham. Good luck getting weather reports without Internet service. The bathrooms don’t even have soap and towel/blowers. It is BYOTowel, apparently. We will avoid this place in the future, even though it is the best option for visiting Serpent Mounds.
Fun time camping at Long's, basketball, ice cream, pizza, go carts & Putt Putt Golf. If you have small kids, their is a mini play area for them and a great Splash Pad. Swimming passes can be purchased for non campers as well as daily passes for campers, very clean and very nice staff.
Overall experience was great. Staff is awesome and knowledgeable. Round the clock security with EMT's on staff for emergencies. Downfall ambulance response time is 30+ minutes, however EMT's on staff do a great job and friendly. Lots of things for the family to do, beach, water slides, putt putt golf, go carts, arcade, baseball field, volleyball and basketball courts, Kids area with carousel and bounce house, train ride, ATV park 2 miles down the road. Golf cart rentals, canoe and paddle boat rentals and play grounds. Well stocked store with beer reasonably priced, movie rentals, ice cream, concession areas with good food including pizza. If you forget to bring firewood, they sell it also. Only thing you have to watch out for, is the deputy that drives around in an orange kabota. Stay away from him, he has a serious attitude problem. Found out from the security staff that he is just one of the security guards there. If I were in charge of things, he would not be aloud back on the property unless he changed his attitude. My family will definitely return to camp.…
This campground is a must if you are in or around this area. The managers are so friendly and helpful, the security guard was incredible. It offers first class amenities from the bathhouse and grounds to the campsites and water park let alone the river activities and gorgeous setting. Thank you and great job!
Our families from 3 states stayed in the Long's Deluxe cabins for our family reunion. It was the perfect place to stay. Plenty of activities for the kids. Our family is large and loud so having multiple cabins together works perfectly for us. I only have a couple of negatives. The beds in these cabins are horrible. They are covered in plastic protectors that cause the sheets to slide off and the mattress /box springs are so uncomfortable. Longs is a very organized well run place, bt, it has gotten too large and overcrowded. Watch your kds around the road that goes toward cabins 21 through 24. Vehicles fly down that road like it's a highway.
