Spent 3 nights at BTL and enjoyed the campground very much. Large, wooded sites - ours had a great view of the lake. The kids enjoyed being able to go to the snack bar for ice cream. We felt safe letting them bike around on their own. The pool was very clean and had good hours as they stayed open a little late (8pm) due to the extreme heat. We didn't get to play mini golf but the course looked great, especially for a campground. Overall the grounds we incredibly maintained. We didn't participate in their scheduled events so can't comment on them.
We opted for the gate key card. Required a $10 security deposit but that was returned to us. I don't think we ever used the card though because the gate is generally manned.
The camp store was lacking. Not that we needed anything really but we always enjoy looking around a store for any cool camping items we find inspiring. They also didn't really have many groceries if you ran out of something. Also, their wi-fi was very funky. You could sign on for 24 hours and then use it for 2 hours per day. Something screwy like that. We never signed in.
The only thing that kept me from a 5 star rating is the bathhouse. The bathhouses close for an hour and a half twice per day for cleaning. Never really saw evidence of cleaning and the closing hours were inconvenient ones (lunch time?). We didn't end up using the showers and just stuck to our RV shower. I didn't mind that they a quarter - who cares about that - but they didn't give me much comfort in the cleanliness department.
Overall a very pleasant few days. We would definitely go back.
