We camped on July 4 weekend and there was 8 camp sites total in our party. This campground is a beautiful campground, dont get me wrong, the pond and activities are great. I even mentioned that if I would ever have a permanent site that this is where I would have it I liked it so much. My thoughts drastically changed when I started interacting with the staff there. On Saturday we went to go on the bumper boats and the attendant was laying on a picnic table. She got up with a groan and stated she just wanted to go home and sleep, she didnt want anymore people coming. When my husband asked who we should give our passes to the girl just held out her hand like she could not be bothered. That night there was a DJ which was nice and the kids had a good time. We all went back to one of our sites to have a good time on a holiday weekend. We all work very hard and camping is our getaway time. We are not a bunch of kids or bad people. We just like to have fun when we get away together. I camp an average of 6-8 times a season and have never experienced what happened next. At about 11:10 a security guard came to the site and stated that we needed to quiet down last time he is telling us. We questioned when the first time was but got no answer. He then proceeded to sit across the road from our campsite and watch us. HOW DISTURBING!!!!! My aunts and uncles who were also there and have been camping all of their lives approached him and asked him what the problem was. He stated that the owner lived right across from the campsites above the store and didnt like to be disturbed. I can understand if it was just a random weekend but I did not expect to spend 4th of July in dead silence. On another occasion my cousin who is a teacher and clean cut as they come was told there is no foot traffic in the campground after 11 as he walked from one campsite to another 20 feet away. My question is, if you do not have a toilet in your camper how do you go to the bathroom after 11 pm? Do you need to take a bucket with you or hold it all night? Its like 11pm is lockdown at this campground. I also learned that this campground hosts a biker week. Do they have quiet time at 11 pm during that week too? I originally booked for next year my first day there but am cancelling those reservations.
