We stayed at Ponderosa campground in July 2015. Brothers/cousins weekend, 14 guys enjoyed a hassle free weekend.

Staff is pleasant and knowledgeable. I think it is family run. Management is laid back and accommodating, when we asked if we could park two jet skis by the front office, they said sure, no problem. When we parked an extra car, they didn't hassle us. When we stayed up to 2am playing craps and drinking, no one hassled us.

Club house, actually a pavilion with a tiki bar like snack bar is simple, clean, spacious and accommodating. Food at the snack bar is excellent and cooked to order, great fries, chicken fingers and burgers. Pool is medium sized, clean, well kept and a central piece of the clubhouse area. Water was warm. It has a wall with fountains in the middle separating the shallow and deep part. I nice touch you don't see in other hotels/campgrounds. Bathrooms with free showers are clean, simple and not crowded. One toilet was closed when we were there.

We camped with tents, but they have lots of small one room cabins that have air conditioning, electric, small fridge, shower and toilet. The cabins are rustic, each with a small porch.

Campground was a mix of families, old, young and groups. All camp sites are wooded and large. Each one has electric and water, a burn ring and plenty of room for a large tent, a central area for a canopy and a vehicle. We will definitely be back.

Room tip: Pool is mostly empty until about 3pm when families come back from the beach.

We love the Ponderosa campground for several reasons; it's clean, close to several beaches, and comfortable. We have been renting cabins for the past 5+ years, and we are about to book for next year. We just got back and had a wonderful time. The pool is great; nice and warm, as well as large. They have a nice bar/lounge area to order food and watch the game or a race. The store has items that are necessary too. The cabins are always clean and have exactly what we need for a nice stay.

Room tip: We stayed in Q-6 and loved it! Also Q-1 and S-6 are good too.

After enjoying our first visit, we decided to come back and bring the whole family for a long weekend. Everyone enjoyed it very much. A few maintenance issues here and there but a call to the office and problems solved within minutes. That made what could have been annoying situations, completely tolerable. Well kept grounds and cabins will keep us returning. Great area too.
