“The owner/operator Dave is a mean and unprofessional man!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

My family and I have been seasonal campers for 8 years we just recently pulled out because we could no longer tolerate the owner. He makes you feel very uncomfortable. If he is in a pissed off mood which is 99% of the time look out! He goes on rampages yelling at anyone in his way. If he catches your kids walking home from another site to theirs after 11:00 he will come to your camper flipping out. If you have older kids who have grown up there, know that when they turn 18 they have to pay to come and visit their parents. 10.00 a day and twenty overnight. And they can't rent a site unless they are 25. Most of the seasonal kids are afraid of him and find ways to avoid him. Who wants to vacation like that? The park looses electricity quite a lot in the summer which causes power surgers in the campers and can cause damage to your camper. And don't think about cooling down in the lake after 8 oclock when this happens you will see a mad man chase you all out!!! Beautiful place, too bad the owner doesn't know how to run a friendly campground like his dad did.

We happened upon this place by chance and after driving through the campsite we decided to stay.
It was after season so there didnt appear to be many people staying.
First off, once it got dark, we realized our tent site was right under a street lamp. Added to this was the row of trailers right behind us. There were a few people the argued throughout the night and I was awoken at 5am to someone tearing out of their site in a truck with someone screaming after them.
Also the planes started at 6:50 landing and taking off. This happens right next to the campground and we weren't warned about the noise when we were checking In. The bathrooms/showers were dirty and it cost 50 cents for an 8 minute shower that took 4 minutes to actually get warm enough to get into it.
A dog barked from the time we set up camp at 3pm until around 7pm.
I have to say this is the worst campground I have stayed at in a long time. I won't be back, nor would I recommend it to any tenter out there!

We recently spent a day or so at Ellis Haven. If you want to have a good, safe, weekend at all, I suggest you find another campground. This place is not safe. The Manager / Owner (who oversees this place) is an un-professional, out of control, loose cannon & freighting individual. We experienced this 1st hand.
Save your money and take your children to a safe campground.

Just came back for my 6th camping trip at Ellis Haven. Again everything was perfect. All the facilities are clean and up to date. We had one problem with the Wifi but someone from the staff came right out and got it all taken care of. Everyone in the park is very friendly, always waving. Its a great place for family camping. A lot of activities for the kids. They are GO GO GO which makes it nice for my husband and I. Would highly recomend Ellis Haven.

This place literally has something for everyone. There are various kid activities every weekend and an arcade. There is an abundance of fishing ponds and a swimming pond. There is a dog park for your four legged family members. For the adults There is a bar onsite that is walking distance to your site. There is also other activities including a playground, basketball courts, mini-golf, horseshoes, etc. The bathrooms were updated last year and are very clean. Ellis haven is a "haven" away from home. Whether you are 10 minutes from home it still feels like you are miles away and the stress of daily life rolls off your shoulders.
