We just spent a weekend here with friends, who rented the on-site trailers, while we stayed in a camp site in our tent. One of the two rented trailers was a bit more up-dated than the other, but certainly had the basics that were needed. Our friends seemed ok with their accomadations, it's not meant to be 5 star. We thought it was like a trailer park over on that side of the camp ground, with lots of people packed in, and yards with garden gnomes. The bathrooms on that side were quite clean, but you have to pay for a shower. On the other side of the campground where there are more tents and campsites, the bathrooms are not so great. I realize it is camping, but I think the bathrooms could have at least been swept out of the bugs and such. No showers except in one of them, and there is only one stall for a shower, and it was no big deal. It is loud, despite the "quiet hour" rules, with people playing music and talking into the night. The campsites are on the small side, and we just about fit our tent, screen porch, car and picnic table. Glad for the water and electric hook-ups at the site. You HAVE to buy their firewood at $5.50 for about five or six logs, so they have you there, especially if you are using the fire to cook over. The staff seemed friendly, but at times a bit unorganized. We were expecting two people to get there around 10p.m., and the staff said these people would need a token to get into the camp, so we would have to pay $1. When we went to get the token, because we realized they would be later, they said we didn't need one. Same type of thing when we used their canoes...we were told to rush over to the canoes, because other people would want to boat, but when we got there, it was no big thing to wait for our friends. Pretty lake to boat on, not sure I would swim in it. The pool was nice, fairly clean, but we had to lug our chairs to the pool because none are provided, and there is no shade, so bring a beach umbrella. They have mini golf, but it's a bit old and run down. It seemed like there were many more people who stayed for the summer season, than just a week or weekend. We would probably not go back because we didn't think it was anything that great, but again, it depends on your idea of camping.
