Winngray Campground
Reviewed August 4, 2013

A nice place to stay for a night except for the cable hook up. We were OK with the place when we stayed for a night in March. We moved to the area in June and were happy to find that they had a public laundry facility, and very close to our home. The happiness was short lived. The owners seem to be inspired by the WWII German prison system. The sign states " no laundry to be started after 3:30pm. On the two occasions that we have attempted to do our laundry there, the owners have made it clear that we are NOT welcome there. On the first trip we found the door locked at 3:20pm, when asked, the owner said "Didn't you read the sign?". He refused to let us use the facility. We gave it one more try today and at 3:05pm we were told that we could not use the laundry because it was too late. Posted hours are: 8:30 am until 4:30 pm.

It is apparent that the owners have no intention of making any money from the laundry even though they went to the trouble to place a lighted sign on the roadside to advertise it.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!

This is a beautiful, shady campgound but the owners are the most inhospitable, rude, and stubborn people we have ever met. We have a service dog and we got yelled at for about 15 minutes about getting the dog out of the buidlings. We tried to explain ADA rules about service dogs but there was no making them understand. They are non ADA compliant in all ways: No handicapped parking, no provisions in restrooms. We offered to get our money back and leave but they would not refund us our money. Son of the owner is extremely nice, but he is unable to counteract the parents' fury. There are signs everywhere telling you what NOT to do. Read the other reviews; you will see that this was not a one time situation but a general trend.
