I do not like starting out with a negative because there were so many positives about the campground. We arrived last Sunday at holly shores. We were greeted at the gate by a crew member who took our information and pointed us toward our site S1. It was a nice site little small but not bad. We sat up then went to the office to finish the check in process. The girl that checked us in was polite. We were told we had to give a deposit of 10.00 dollars for the gate card which was no problem. We then were told in order to get cable tv we needed to rent a Comcast cable box. I thought that would be an easy hook up but found that it was not. The first night I could not get it too work and Comcast stated they saw no problem. The next morning I retried but had no luck so I went to the office and told them I could not get the cable to work. I was told a crew member would come over, Pedro came to the site and checked the box to find it was working. He told me it sounded like it was a problem with my line. I rechecked the cable and found that it was not screwed in all the way at the rv. I called comcast and finally got it to work. It took quote a bit of time to get this working. My second tv I decided not to rent the box and only had one tv station. The wire that hangs down to change channels did not work even after the crew said it was working. I think the campgrounds needs a better system I have been too many campgrounds and this is the first time I have ever had to have a box.
On Saturday night my wife and I were walking our dog near the office around 8:30 p.m. When we saw a person with a large dog and a smaller dog. Both dogs became very aggressive when they saw our small dog. The one dog jerked the owner and at that pointed the other dog started barking and leaching towards our direction. The person (we later learned it was the owner of the campground) yelled for us to go around the other way away from them. He was putting the dog in a car marked with holly shores on it. I don't believe that the owner should have a dog or dogs on the grounds if they are vicious or don't like other dogs. If that dog would have broken loose from the owner it would have been a bad situation. I know he might be the owner, but he should not have an animal like that at a campground with young children and other pets if you can't even go near it. I paid to be there and should have not been told to get away. The other thing that upset my wife and a friends wife was the same night around 9:00p.m. They went into the store and a lady behind the counter berated a young girl in front of customer. The lady wanted to know why the young girl had not greeted a customer with a welcome. This should never happen. I believe you take the person to the side and talk to them about the concern but you don't do it in front of your customers. What that showed me or made me thought was is it fake for them to show the welcome greeting. If you teach them right I believe they will respond appropriately.
These were the only two things that I could find wrong with the camping experience. The campground was well groomed and clean. I would revisit.
