“A bit rude and not very friendly”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Like other posts we were handed a sheet of rules and told we need to read these. Fair enough all campgrounds need rules but they can do a better job of passing on the info. We arrived after reserving a site and prepaying only to be told we owe more money. We had a party of 2 adults and 3 children and one dog. Upon arrival a very unfriendly lady spoke up saying "sorry but you owe more than you already paid.". Confused, I asked what for? I was told we had too many people in our party and we would have to pay an additional $4. The lady who took the reservation looked at me and apologized and cut her eyes at the other lady. Now $4 is not a big deal but don't spring additional costs and fees on me at a campground due to another staffers mistake. I questioned the extra charge and was dealt with a response of "we can refund your reservation and you can go elsewhere.". As if at dark I had another choice. Nice property but staff/owners could use a tune up. IMHO

“best tubes, best rates and great service!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We had never tubed before and this place was very helpful. There were 6 of us and we had to get all the tubes on our car. They took extra care in getting them loaded and teaching us how to load them back on when finished. The loading area had plenty of room for several cars and there was also a changing room. When checking in, they also taught us about the river, gave some safety tips and where to see a few waterfalls within short distance. Of all the places we could have chosen, this was the best fit for us.

“Fun inexpensive attraction”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Lots of fun and very cheap. We only made it down twice with our small children and I lost a flip flop....bring water shoes.

But overall a good experience.

“Tube Rental”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

My family and I rented our tubes to tube down the deep creek and the staff and whole operations were wonderful. It was a very easy process and timely. We will rent from them on future trips.

“A really fun experience!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Rent a tube for a day for as little as $3, and "whitewater" tube down Deep Creek! This is an easy and fun way to spend a day! There are also some very nice waterfalls w/in this campground that are easily accessible via short hikes.
