We took our first popup camper on Fathers Day Weekend 2013 and Granite Hill was a pleasant experience. A lady was waiting when we pulled in to help direct us to the office and check in was quick. We were in the back of the campground in a very shaded area (and plenty of room for me to back the camper in safely) and there weren't many sites being used in that area as it was a short hike to the restrooms and other amenities. The restrooms were well maintained. We fished in both of the ponds, the larger one in front was stocked and as basically first time fishers with limited equipment, we were able to catch fish in 15 mins or so! I did miss the fathers day tournament....The pool and surrounding areas were clean although the pool was quite crowded and some teens could have used adult supervision (or someone from the park to occasionally monitor the pool) as they were rude to other younger children. We played shuffle board (w/ refundable deposit) and also did a free ghost tour. They had a free horseshoe tournament and Saturday evening they had a DJ blaring music which all the kids enjoyed as did the parents watching from the lounge chairs. We ate in the barn for dinner when we first arrived and the fathers day breakfast special before leaving. The outside seating did have a lot of large dragon flies that scared the kids from eating there...Pricing and food was average and the kids enjoyed a few minutes in the arcade for their only electronic entertainment of the weekend. We had firewood delivered and it was stacked for us when we returned to the site next to the fire pit. The kids enjoyed playing in the sand pirate ship. This is a good solid campground with activities for the family.
