We stayed at AR for almost a week and found the park very clean. The ladies who work the front desk were very pleasant and helpful to us. Then we met the owners......they should really retire....we dealt with two older men who were extremely rude and when we rented the pool for our Boy Scout Troop paying upfront for the service apparently they (the owners) weren't informed we paid already paid. One of the owners came to us and said we weren't allowed in the pool and after showing them our receipt was basically told he didn't care. We asked for our money back which he refused and told us he could care less if we returned. I was there for the entire event and the boys weren't loud and just kids swimming. One of the families we traveled with rented one of their cabins which had a very strong odor of sewage. They were told it was probably a dead rodent under the flooring and not to worry about it.....can you imagine??? I will say our camping spot was clean however when I pulled in there was a stop "line" to where the camper should stop. I initially stopped at the line but my sewage line (standard length) wouldn't reach so I had to pull up a foot or so. One of the maintenence men stopped and asked me why "all these campers at this spot" always pulled forward. I explained the sewage line issue and his response was "why wouldn't you buy a longer sewage line"? If that many campers had the problem wouldn't you think the problem lies with the spot and not the campers? Besides, I used to have one of the 12 foot lines and for a smaller camper like we own there's not a good place to store it.....you have to either put it in your vehicle or garage.....and if the line is too long the sewage doesn't drain properly.
The location was excellent....you're down the road from the town of Gettysburg and again, the ladies at the front desk were incredibly helpful and nice. One night I witnessed one of the owners being very disrespectful to one of the ladies because he felt she didn't charge a Boy Scout Troop (not ours) staying at the site enough money. If he was going to say something to the lady he should have done it in private.
We absolutely will not stay at this site again. I'll drive a little longer next time to avoid the rudeness and incredible disrespect we experienced.
