"Great spot"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
We were on the end of a row with a Great Lake view. We got the last spot available (December). Each site backs up to a nice big lawn. Great for our dogs. Laundry facilities are pretty standard. Staff all really nice. Will def stay again. 3 bars of ATT 5G.

"Lots of trees"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
Large campsites with lots of shade. Dirt pads with concrete patio and large picnic table. Water and electrical hookups not necessarily on the same side of RV. Our site was somewhat difficult to back into due to the closeness of trees. Verizon: 4.69/5.12 Mbps OTA: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX

"Love this place"

This place is so quiet and close to the shore. There’s several golf course that are close by. There was plenty of spots available since I’ve been here.
