“Campground is in need of decent management”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We have been several times. The last 2 times (about 5 months apart), the campgrounds have gone down. This time was the worst and our last time. The grass was so high and it just looked overall like a campground on the way down. Plus the price has gone up. Our spot was definitely in need of some TLC,as well as others. Such a shame, I think it is just poor management.

“Total rip off”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

Never stay at this place! They care nothing about their guests. Have filth in their beach area, broken boards on their piers and the water around the piers is so clogged with weeds that you can not swim. They also charge you for each person who wants to swim on their onsite pool! Way over priced, dirty cabins, and poorly stocked kitchens.

“Will steal money with your credit card!!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Do not go to this terrible place and absolutely do not give them a credit card number. We paid cash for a four night stay but were required to give them a credit card number for them to hold the reservation. Big mistake. These dishonest people deducted $141.70 from my credit card two weeks after we left because of soiled linens which they said had to be dicarded. One of our children threw up on one of their blankets (no washing machines so I couldn't wash it) and one of our children bled on one of their wash cloths. Despite the fact that we left a $40 tip for the housekeeper, they charged us a ridiculous $140 for the soiled linens. Never visit this place but most importantly DO NOT give them your credit card number.

“Disgusting.”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

In town for girls' state softball tournament. Two-night stay in Goose Pond Lodge (rooms 5 and 6). Silverfish bugs everywhere in both rooms--in our luggage when we arrived back home. Fresh, very suspicious wet spots in the middle of the sheets on one bed and huge wet spot on comforter on same bed when we arrived. No way sheets could have been changed and still have wet spots under the comforter--called the building where we checked in and they had to call housekeeping back to change them. Asked them to change all 4 beds for us--did but wasn't too happy to do so. Spider webs full of insects on top of sliding glass doors in both rooms. Large stain (about 12" in diameter) on carpet in one room; do not believe it had been vacuumed prior to our arrival--even had sunflower seeds all over floor. Nastiest place my family has ever stayed in. When we checked out, the lady's only comment was that she hated we had that experience.
