Always get a confirmation in writing. If not, they will charge you more when you arrive. If you are planning to stay more than a month to use the monthly rate, don't count on it. There is an "approval" procedure that you have to go through with a "manager (who seems to think he's the rule of the world)" which they never tell you when making a reservation. Not only having no people skills and no idea how to talk to customers, some of the questions you are asked are very personal which may make you uncomfortable, so be ready. Until you are "approved," you will be charged at daily rate which is twice as much compare to the monthly rate. If you are staying for a few days less than a month, you would think you pay for the month and leave the site when you plan to, but that will not be the case here. They will refuse to give you the monthly rate unless you complete a whole month to stay and make you pay at daily rate (again, that is double of what you pay in one month). They also do not like older rigs. They will give you an attitude for even 10 year old ones.
Camping should be fun and it is truly unnecessary to start with bad experience for any reason. From my experience, I do not recommend this place to others but once you park, there are many great campers you meet. Loved the people I met but never like to see the staff again in the rest of my life.
If you decide to go, this place is kept very clean and landscaped nicely so you will be happy with the environment. It is just too bad the service is not met to standard. If you need to hook up to 50 amps, make sure to request since they do not have many. Hope no one will be treated as we did or at least aware of what you are heading to.
