We arrived with our group in the early afternoon. When we checked in, the young lady attendant at the counter never verified our identities when she handed over the campsite. We also had issues with the same attendant's attitude and general demeanor each time we had to go to the store that evening. We got to our campsite and set up. Then we decided we wanted to check out the bathrooms. Modern bathrooms and showers were advertised on the website. We found that there was only one bathroom building at the front of the campground, which had doors with no locks, and we found out that the showers cost .75 cents per shower (the rest of the bathrooms were porta-pottys), which was not specified, and was an inconvenience. The next morning it was a nice surprise when the older gentleman that was running the store that morning, was extremely helpful with all of our concerns tubing and went out of his way to take care of us. Overall, they need to do a better job advertising what is actually included. In the end, it was a mediocre camping trip, definitely made better by the friends we were with, but the campground had little to do with the enjoyment.
