“Great setting, questionable tenancy”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This campground, northwest of New Castle is in a lovely setting next to Elk Creek. We stayed there one night in mid September 2012. There is a sign outside the campground indicating that it is for sale. We were assigned a wonderful little cabin right beside the creek and you couldn't have asked for a nicer spot. However, this campground appears to have several long term tenants versus just people camping temporarily. Anytime you see this you realize that the owner(s) had to rent out in order to maintain some cash flow and would explain the for sale sign out front. Some people are probably not bothered by this sort of situation, but to us, it took away from our experience and unless we find that new owners change their policies regarding longer term tenancy, we will not visit again. It's a shame, though, the campground has real potential.
