I had read a few reviews prior and thought this a great place to stay as we were looking for a much needed family vacation. First question from the ladies who run the joint, 'ARE YOUR KIDS LOUD'? I was taken aback, my kids (isn't everyone's?) loud by nature, especially when they are excited and running around while camping and playing. She said there were kids who stayed there previously who screamed for a few hours and they had calls from the 'resident' campers. This interaction made me VERY uncomfortable, nothing I want to be while enjoying the first real vacation in 4 years. I felt as though I had to keep my kids quiet, and my husband was upset by the whole deal as well, even telling the woman from the front desk who drove over to the marina to remind us that she let us (after telling us to) drive on the grass to park the first time around, but that we should not do that again. My husband was pretty fired up.
Her response to my husband saying that kids are kids and we may need to find somewhere else more welcoming to kids? "NO REFUNDS". So we dealt with it, and figured if anyone had an issue with us that we would just tell them, 'sorry, no refunds!'.
Good part about this place? They have a resident peacock who roams around, as friendly as a nice dog, and loves to eat crackers, etc. The access to the beach across the street is wonderful, and the place is pretty clean. There are no trees or blocking privacy between sites, but if you go at the right time, they space you out pretty well.
Location & peacock get the 2 stars!
