We decided to tent it here on our way to Florida. The reviews made this place look great, so we thought we'd give it a shot. When we arrived, it was raining. The owner was kind enough to let us back out of our reservation as it was impossible to set up our tent in the rain. We drove to the caves for a tour, and caught a break in the rain long enough to set up. While I was very impressed with the owners and their hospitality, but the place could use some work. I kinda felt like we had our tent in someone's back yard rather than a campground. The cabins are right on top of each other, and overall the area is small. The pictures were a bit deceiving. The showers/restrooms for the campers were clean. It did rain for our entire 2 day stay, so it was pretty flooded. We had to walk through a lot of water to get anywhere. No blame to the owners, you can't stop mother nature. Again, the owners were great, checked on us to make sure we were staying dry and appologized for the rain and water mess. There was a picnic table inthe tenting area, and 1 fire ring. You can put your tent wherever you want on the hill. You have to park in a designated area which is a bit of a walk from the tents. No electricity or water. If you like rustic, and don't mind feeling like your in someone's back yard (or even front yard as there was a house near by in the back too), then you can't beat the deal. Don't expect anything fancy, and you won't be disappointed. The people we saw in the cabins were fairly happy with their accomidations. Those in RV's seemed good too.
