While this campground was beautiful and very well maintained they do not have ANY Pet Rules Posted nor will they do anything about other campers that abuse. We have camped for years and never had a problem such as this. We do own a dog and love dogs. However, this campground allowed campers to place multiple pens on their sites with multiple dogs in them. We had a camper one campsite over that had 3 miniature doberman pincer's that were left outside and that continuously barked all day long, rarely stopping for 5 minutes. In as much, as the campground did have quit hours from 10 pm - 8 am these dogs woke us up at 7:22 am and continued to bark for over an hour straight 2 days in a row. My husband and I have never complained at a campground before, but this was affecting our vacation. We complained to management 3 different times and the last time the Owner, Barry yelled at me and told me I was exaggerating because he was just over there and they only barked when he approached and walked away. However, when I offered for him to stay at our camper for 30 min. he refused and told us they weren't going to ask them to leave because they drove a long way. Needless to say, we booked this site 6 months in advance, paid for it and were not bothering any other campers, we were asked to leave if we didn't like it. Let me understand this, let the camper whom is the one causing the noise stay and ask the ones to leave that bring it to your attention more than once. There was also another camper whom has been camping there for 9 years and he stated that this was the worst he has ever seen it. We are from Michigan and all I can say is that this type of behavior from campers would not be Tolerated at any campground and they would have been asked to leave. The response we received from Barry was totally unacceptable and beyond belief.
