We just came back from a week in LIW. We went with a large group, so can easily rate the rooms, as well as campsites. We got a campsite, the treehouse, 2 deluxe cabins and the yurt.
Pros: The place is beautiful. Easily the prettiest, kept up campground we have been to, and we camp A TON. They get an A+ for cleanliness. There are treats in the woods, like totem poles, places to sit, etc. Alot of fun to be had, especially with a large group. The Yurt is amazing, its like your own private island! The food is decent and not too expensive.
Cons: This is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5 stars. 1. The pool said to be 79 degrees and heated. No way, no how. It was ice cold. So much so that my kids, who love to swim barely went in it at all. 2. The place is run like a jail. I understand they have to have rules to have it so clean, but you really feel like you are being watched, and some of the staff is not so nice at all. 2. the lake is icky. Kids fished but its still icky :( 4..the biggest con of all. The quarry! I was woken up every weekday at 6:30 AM. Not relaxing at all. People there said you get used to it, but I dont go on a relaxing vacation to ignore it, its absolutely terrible. On our last night there, we got no sleep, because they were blasting every 1/2 hour till 3:30 AM! That was weekdays, weekends you have to contend with the noise from the race track. We got no sleep.
It really is too bad, because we loved it, but regrettably will not be going back, mostly because of the noise and the pool.
