First the good...Great Lake spot, wonderful staff. Because of the lake and beach area the kids had an absolute blast. The items below would make this place absolutely phenomenal if they made some adjustments. The not that good.... DUST, DUST and more DUST!!! The crush and run on every road within the campground creates the most concrete dust I have ever seen in one place while camping. This is due to the fact that nobody enforces the 5 miles an hour throughout the campground especially on golf carts. Even if there were some speed bumps placed throughout it would help a great deal. We will be forever cleaning stone dust out of our camper and vehicles and my Rv a/c is now in need of coil cleaning as my filter is caked with this dust. A fresh topping of regular stone or a water truck occasionally would eliminate some of this. Road conditions between the general store and camping areas were very poor as well but actually we are effective in keeping people slow enough. The bathrooms- At least in the area that we were camping the bathrooms were very run down and dated but pretty clean most of the time. The problem I have is the screens on the doors looked like they hadn’t been replaced in years and were all busted out. Two out of three faucets wouldn’t over the 4 days I was there. Just kind of makes you think that they don’t take pride in their own campground facilities. The general store and the buildings up top are very nice and I hope they have plans to update the same within the campground someday. The reservation process... After talking with another local I was told that basically unless you are able to camp out on the general store porch the night before they open reservation process for the following year you’ll never get a ”GREAT”spot. Seems a bit unfair for those that have to call in and take what’s left. Not that the other spots are horrible it’s just that it basically is the difference between having zero shade and getting completely dusted out while you are there.…
I had reservations for June and I called 30 days in advance to cancel because of the current health crisis. And I lost $56. We would have kept our reservation but do not feel that it is safe to camp since we will need to use the public restroom. And most of the activities will be cancelled. I feel that the camp ground should have refunded me the full amount. I think it is terrible business to take customers money considering the circumstances. They did say that I would get a $36 credit. But seriously I do not want to give this campground any more of my money considering how I was treated.
This campground is a great place to stay. Bathrooms are dated but kept clean. Amperage suffers a drop at certain times of the day when campground is full. I would recommend staying here. Great Lake. Don't bike here. Too many grades.
love the lake. we stayed in the 300 primative camping sec,had a great site.your the farthest from the lake,but the sites are nicer. for being on such a great lake the beach was only ok,the mini golf not even ok. the staff was nice and the bbq rest. is very good when open.have stayed at other side of lake and like here better. lake side is hilly. rent a kayak,jump off some rocks and enjoy the lake. saw many deer at site.
We totally loved all the free weekend activities and affordability of the campground! Very family friendly, my children had so much fun and they have playgrounds in every area, a pool, a giant jumping pillow, putt putt golf, corn hole, smores, and fun and friendly staff!!!
