What a disappointment! We were given a site that even the neighbors (that are permanent campers) said should have never been rented out. We has a few square feet of sandy dirt filled with holes and not a blade of grass. Our fire ring was at a strange angle and two feet from our door, so couldn't be used or even moved as it was attached to a thick cement block. Upon arriving, we couldn't find our site as most aren't marked or marked well, as are the roads. When we finally got to our site, it was impossible to level our camper on the shifting sand, and our power box was shut off. Had to get someone to come and turn it on. The bathrooms were very inadequate for the crowd and they were dirty. The dumpsters were overflowing with garbage. The sites and so crammed together the campers are almost touching in places. All the roads are within a foot or two of the campers and they are dirt with a little gravel and with all the golf carts running around it is constantly dusty---and I mean clouds of dust. The pools were not too clean, very cloudy, and they allow people to sit by the pools and smoke! Some even had glass bottles of alcohol at the pool. Although they advertise the pools as being heated, they were absolutely FREEZING cold! The is a very small fishing pond, but out of 11 of us trying for hours, not one fish even bit or was detected. I think there might not be any fish in the pond. The only nice thing we found is that there is a county park filled with trails that you can access from Eby's and it is really nice. We walked to an old mill that is still working and got to walk through two waterfalls to get there. Also, we did go rollerskating and play laser tag across the road and that was fun. The facility is really nice and clean. We cannot recommend the campground though, and will never go back.
