Stayed here for 5 nights in our travel trailer. This was a great campground and the staff was very friendly. Want to especially thank Kathy who worked in the front office and was absolutely fantastic to deal with - she is a 'star' employee for these guys for sure!!! The place reminded me of the type of campground I use to stay in as a child - fun, great rec. hall, plenty of activities and gatherings, etc. Seemed to have plenty of activities for the kids and adults alike, very clean environment and outbuildings and yummy food at the snack bar. I would definitely stay here again. I will say I was nervous about booking here because of the reviews I was able to find - they seemed negative - but thank goodness I was able to figure out that they were just from some disgruntled 'seasonal' campers who seemed to have 'ganged up' on management for their own 'cause'. Pretty sad that something like that would happen to a family campground that has been around for so many years - well PLEASE don't let a few 'bad apple's' sway you! This place was absolutely wonderful, and again I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Hope to get back again that way soon - and hope to see you again soon Kathy you were a great welcoming 'concierge' after a long trip from South Carolina and a great host while we there!
