We stayed at the Candy Cottage for four nights while we took a much needed break away from the real world. The cottage was extremely clean and so were the bathrooms. There was no noise at nights and we enjoyed the fire pit very much. We got coffee at the office each morning and our son enjoyed the toys there... More

We stayed in dwarf cabin 53 for Labor Day weekend. It was perfect for our family of 4. There were ants in the kitchen so we left our dry food in the car, but other than that the cabin was perfect. The staff was very friendly and fun! The birds in the office were amazing. Karaoke was great entertainment. Bingo... More

First let me say this campground is awesome! It used to be a Jellystone, which was our initial reason for choosing it, but they dropped the franchise. It's perfectly situated in the woods with a flowing stream around the majority of sites. We loved being right next to it and sleeping to the sounds of water. There are some really... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin rental was extremely clean. The campgrounds were well maintained and the staff were super nice. My husband and I both woke up with some sort of insect bites all over us. We slept on the futon. Our children did not get these bites. There were a few ants in the cabin. I'm not... More

Absolutely the best!!! Dave and his family are extremely nice folks and take pride in providing a clean, safe campground that is super kid friendly. You can tell they truly love kids. Great amenities and activities right there on site "plus" the two streams. Our kids and every other kids I saw loved playing and exploring in the two streams... More

Stayed in dwarf cabin #51 for a week with my 8 1/2 year old daughter. Very clean, and right on the stream. Plenty of hot water in the shower, and a cold a.c. My daughter met 5 new friends while there, two who have become pen pals. Very family friendly. Great cabin neighbors. I don't believe Dave and his family... More

08/06/2016 We stayed there this weekend and couldn't have had a better experience even if we had tried. The place is fantastic and especially if you have children to camp with. The staff were amazing (Justin and wife) were really sweet and caring. We had a minor problem when we checked in at our site but within minutes they were... More

This is our 4th summer here. It's been our favorite place to stay hands down. They just changed from Jellystone to Imagination Mountain and it's even better. Same great ownership and staff. Even more to do. It's clean, cozy and has enough for both kids and adults. We are already looking forward to 2017.

We had a blast at Imagination Mountain!!! Our family of 6 (children ages 2, 7, 10, 11) rented a cabin over 4th of July weekend. Although we wished we could have stayed longer, it felt like the kids got to try everything! Activities are all centrally located and easy to find. The kids pretty much had free roam of the... More

First time campers at this campground, and it won't be the last. We were right on the creek. The Landry's keep the grounds orderly and maintained along with the bathrooms that are very clean. There are activities for children along with a life size chess board, miniature golf, game room, ice cream parlor and outdoor pool. 7PM movie on the... More
