I booked at this campground because of the great reviews here at Tripadvisor; however my experience was quite different. The staff was indeed very kind and accomodating and the location is beautiful.
The negetives? No hot water for showers during the night; however there was in the morning. No enforcement of quite times. They have several campers that stay there all season and they had a projector and sound system outdoors blasting music, machine guns, explosions etc until 2:30 in the morning. That is simply not acceptable in a family campground that has a 12 AM quite time rule.
Also there are very little in the way of activities other then the pool. I would not recommend it for those with young families as the kids will soon get bored.
The most important part of a family campground is the family part. No hot water, loud explosions until 2:30 AM just does not cut it. I cannot recommend this as a family campground.
