We did not stay at the hotel, we camped with our travel trailer so this review is about camping although we did go to the hotel. The camp sites we stayed on were relatively cheap $50/night. This is a resort owned/operated by Blue Green Resorts. It is a time share place however non owners are welcome and are NOT harrassed about sales.
The sites we were on were the gravel sites. They were back in the woods a bit so if you like that kind of thing those sites are the place for you. I was on site #2 which was a bit tough to back in to and I can imagine there are several others that can be even more challenging. They do have some pull-through sites in this area. I love camping in the wooded areas myself, but our friends would rather have stayed on the concrete pad sites. Those sites are very nice. Not as many trees, but the ammenities are quite nice. The standard pull through and back in concrete sites are $85/night with a 3 night minimum. They come with a proprane grill, table, and chairs. However, the pull through sites come with a sink and a bigger table and more chairs. Very nice! They also have hot tub sites which have a fire ring built into the patio. Those are like 135/night with a 7 night minimum. Oh and the gravel sites had charcoal grills (ours was in excellent condition) and fire rings with a grill grate also in great condition.
The things to do here are many. Some of the basic things are free like the pools, miniature golf, basketball, tennis, cable tv and few others. They also have fishing, horse back riding, kayaking and lessons, and other stuff. They offer cabins and yerts. Yerts are a glorified round tent with heat and a/c. Not too bad, but expensive for a tent. They have 5 pools at one area and two more at the hotel area. They are all open (from what I understand) all year round. The 5 pools are two big hot tubs and 3 other pools one which is heated. The hotel area has an indoor and outdoor pool. It was 60 degrees at night and all 4 kids were swimming still. The pool hours are like no other campground I've been on. They were from 8am to 10pm. Both areas have arcades which are very nice. They have a lot of activities for adults and children going on all the time. The place is kept very clean. Restrooms and showers are close by all sites.
All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want it to end. We will definitely be back. They have no idea if you are an owner or just a looker so they treat everyone the same. The staff were sometimes not very well versed on what things are or where they were, but they were nice.
The only bad part I saw was the staff vehicles went rather fast and were sometimes noisy. Two horses used the restroom on the main road so that trailers and cars could run through it and after 1.5 days they still had not cleaned it up. That was a bit disappointing. They do have walking trails, but they are the same as the horse trails so watch out!!
