The amenities they claim are a little bit false. They have them, but the were either not working or in poor order. I know this may seem nit-picky, but when you add them all up, it sours the experience a bit:
Pool was supposed to be open at 10am, but they were short staffed and they didn't open them till 11 one day (try saying be patient to little kids waiting),
Change machine for the game-room was broken, and the office/store didn't have quarters
There was always toilet paper on the bathroom floor, including a turd someone left for 3-4hours
All of the mini-golf motors (windmill type devices on the front) were broken
Most all of the peddle carts were either out of service or in poor shape
The wood is a bit overpriced. $6 for the small bundle that you see at gas stations
The fire pit was about 3 feet deep and MAYBE 2 ft wide. If you wanted to have a nice fire, you had to go though a TON of wood.

The grounds were fairly kept up and the staff was responsive and helpful. Overall, it was OK, but for the rate I paid I was expecting a little bit better.

Also, if you like horseback riding, the trail rides down the road were excellent and affordable. Actual trails instead of the usual walking around a corm field and great guides.

We had taken our children here about 7 or more years ago and they had nice kid activities. So when we decided to take our 5 year old niece out for a camping trip, we knew she'd be busy! The campground was untidy (trash around our site) when we arrived, and they could not find our reservation initially. Then when we paid in advance for extra family to come, they couldn't find that either-very disorganized office, but pleasant staff. Pricey-an extra $15 per adult and $10 per child AND $2 for their car....but you are paying for the activities and amenities. Did not use the bath facilities this trip, so cannot comment there. Noisy in the evening due to dancing/music. If you do go, remember some white t-shirts for tie dying, candy bars for bingo and some glow in the dark necklaces from the $1 store. This will help save some money since it is a pricey place. Overall a fun stay and met our needs for the little one, but if you are looking for quiet and relaxation, definitely go to the state parks.

The overall rating is based on my expectations of what this place is about. Our family will NOT be going back as I always have preferred traditional camping at state parks and the nature aspect of it.

We went for two nights (fri and sat) with our kids and my in-laws and were able to stay in their camper. We had campsites in the 900 range and like another review they are right on top of each other so I would avoid them, they are also on the main strip. They are close to the pool but most campsites in this park are really not that far from the amenities. There are many other sites with more shade and space that I would recommend.

The campsites are pricey compared to state parks but you are paying for all the staff and the insurance they need to have pools. They do nickel and dime you for everything, fee for extra car, fee for pets, fee for extra adults and fee if you wanted to put up a tent as well. The last fee I just really don't get, why does it matter if I put a tent up in addition to the camper?

We did not purchase any food so I cannot comment on that, from what I saw some items were reasonable. We did buy some firewood, but I usually try and find a local place outside the campground.

This is a loud campground during the day and evening, so if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing evening around the campfire this is not the place for you. The crowd here is definitely more of a "party" crowd and you have quite a mix of people, all seemed friendly though. If you enjoy listening to others musical tastes then this is the spot for you. Quiet hours are NOT till 11PM so keep that in mind.

On Saturday only 1 of the pools was open as there was some issues with the larger one, I understand that things happened but none of the staff knew the details. All the staff was friendly but they should be informed. This meant a crowded smaller pool that everyone went too, I did notice them checking the chemical level frequently so at least they knew it was more crowded.

I did note a previous reviewers comment on the long grass clippings which they had a as well when we went. One good thing I saw was you would not have an issue finding a grassy campsite for tent camping.

There are lots of activities for the kids to do, but some do cost extra.

Pros:
- Many activities for the kids.
- Very friendly staff.

Cons:
- Pricey
- Very noisy, but I prefer traditional camping.

Bottom Line:
If you enjoy traditional camping and the sounds of nature do not go here, but if you want to have a lot of activities for your kids and don't mind noise or paying for them then you might try this spot out. But then again if you go with another family that has kids the same age as yours that is really all you need as they will have just as much fun without all the noise and other stuff.

Fitzgerald -
You need to get with the program. We arrived on Thursday afternoon just before Memorial Day weekend and it's like you were surprised the holiday was here and campers would be arriving.

Grass was not cut. When they did start cutting the LONG grass the clippings were just lying there in huge piles. Nasty stuff tracking that in and out of trailers/tents!

The grounds were in poor shape. They started planting flowers but left all the gardening containers lying around for over 4 days.

Pool was green when we pulled in on Thursday. AGAIN, SURPRISE, It's the holiday weekend and peeps are arriving.

The bathroom were disgusting!!! It was a busy weekend and the bathrooms were ALWAYS DIRTY! Fitz - you should of had an extra employee or two checking on the bathrooms throughout the weekend.

I heard from another camper there THIS IS THE NORM for Fitzgerald campground on Memorial Day weekend. It's like the staff just arrived on Thursday before the holiday to pull the place together.

SAD - It could a very AWESOME place if someone took a little time to make it a super nice campground.

We stayed here for the Halloween weekend. When we first arrived we couldn't believe how small the sites were. If we put our canopy out and set our chairs under them, we would have stared at the sewer of the site next to us. (In fact our carpet would have run up to the sewer which would have been kind of disgusting so we didn't put it out.) We had 3 families staying in sites in the 900 range and all were very small, very narrow. For the sites on either site of us you wouldn't want to use the firepit because you would be afraid to set your neighbors car on fire!

They have 2 sites share a water hook up. I can understand that but the hookup was too far for our hose to reach. Luckily a family member had a spare or we wouldn't have had water. When we went to hook it up, there was no splitter so we had to notify the staff. They came out quickly. The kid looked like he was about 12 (like most of the staff!) He didn't have the tool he needed to get our neighbors off and had to go back for it, but he came back out right away.

They do charge for extra guests and even for dogs. Considering what you pay for such a small site, this is ridiculous. Firewood was pricey. However the mini golf was free and the DJ at night was free. The kids really enjoyed both. My brother-in-law also rented pedal cars for the kids. We had to bring 2 back to have the tires filled with air but enjoyed them after that.

The only food we got from the camp store was pizza. It was pricey: $16 for a large with only cheese. They charge $2 per topping and we got sausage and pepperoni. Since watch square of pizza had one of each (and they were not small slices), this was a little too pricey. They do deliver to your site which is nice. The nice girl that delivered it declined a tip.

We were right off the main strip. Other areas of the park were wooded and very pretty, especially with the fall colors. However, most sites were still small....and they only have 2 pull thrus. So, if you are new to driving your camper, or have a hard time backing up, you may need to try to get one of these two.

As we were setting up to leave, my husband discovered he was missing a pin for hooking the camper to the hitch. The camp store didn't have them but they did send someone out with a box of them to see if they could find one to fit. They gave us one and didn't charge us. This was very nice of them.

By the way, this was a very busy weekend and they didn't have in issue with running out of toilet paper in the bathroom that could see. Maybe they learned a lesson!

Overall, mostly due to enjoying time with family, we ended up having a great time. If sites were bigger we would go back for sure.
