After reading some of the negative reviews, I noticed many were from 2-3 years ago. I guess "that was then, this is now". We stayed there this past weekend and it was awesome! While it was explained that they are doing a lot of improvements to the sites and common areas, we thought it was already pretty nice. The management and staff were terrific. The General Manager, Lori, asked us how everything was every time she saw us, even making rounds on a golf cart to visit campers and make sure everything was good. The rest of the staff was very helpful, as well. The camp store was well stocked & reasonably priced. The selection of amenities was vast - canoe/kayak rentals, bike rentals, miniature golf, fishing dock, heated pool, hot tub laundry facilities, firewood, propane, and much more. Our only regret - That we had not taken Monday off work and couldn't extend our stay another night!
