The park is still being built-out, but is already the nicest in the area. Great hosts with large level sites and great location. Highly recommended!

The owners have really put a lot of effort & $$ into upgrading this property. They decided to remove the golf course and in its place construct new sites. The old section within the trees is still there and occupied by mostly seasonal or full-timers. Some upgrades are in the works for this section (TBD). The new section has all concrete drives...

Splurged on a site with a dog pen which my pups enjoyed and a lovely fire pit which I enjoyed. Pool was warm and beat expectations. Dog park with...

Hole in the...

"Nice manager but exceedingly sparse and basic"

Manager Brian is a super nice guy. Our arrival was delayed several times due to urgent RV maintenance and he was incredibly understanding. We stayed for 2 nights and our pull-through full hookup gravel site was comfortable but not very level. Campground is located on the corner of a busy intersection with lots of noise.
