We spent the weekend here with another family. Positive items, check in staff were pleasant and easy to work with, the pool with the water slide and the hot tub is nice, looks new, the bathrooms were clean, and the quiet time worked as the campground quieted down at 11pm. On the negative side, the pool was very, very crowded most of the time. The line to the water slide was 30 minutes at times. Most buildings on the property need a paint job or in need of maintenance (i.e. half the ceiling lights were out in the arcade). The electrical and water at our site was not located near the sewer hookup, so I needed to purchase an extension cable and additional hose - not well placed for having been installed fairly recently. The roads are thoroughly pot holed and in need of repair. The river was slow moving, poorly accessible (had to climb down a large muddy embankment), no signs of any kind, and turned out to be a lack luster ride - was oversold. The campground has a huge amounts of sites which translated to lots and lots of people in the pool, at the movies, etc - very crowded. Most areas are run by teenagers who are not that enthusiastic. Several times I saw the owner sitting in a chair and shooting the breeze with staff. I thought, with all the maintenance that needs to be done, man is he just sitting around. At other campgrounds the owner/manager is usually focused and busy working. It is described as a resort, but really should not be.
We have been to KOA campgrounds this large that are just in much, much better shape and run more like a real business.
In summary, crowded, oversold, and needs improvement - we will no be returning.
