“Relaxing and convenient”

Even though the it says the park is seasonal, I stayed here in mid March and I'm sure they had been open for a bit. I called and talked directly to the campground as that is an option on the electronic menu. I didn't make a reservation as this time of the year there were plenty of campsites available even though I was there over Easter weekend. There are tent sites and pull through RV sites, all with water and electric. The top loop has full hookups at a higher rate, but there is a dump site for free use if you camp here. Most of the campsites are paved and pull through and most would fit larger RV's with trailers or toads, but getting them level could be a challenge on some of the sites. Some of the access is pretty hilly, but I got in and out with my 24 foot coach and 8 foot trailer just fine. The campground was free of litter and there is a laundry available in the bath house, but I didn't use either or even check them out. Campground personnel were very helpful and friendly and drove through the campground on golf carts to check on things frequently. Golf carts are allowed I believe, but you need permissions. Unfortunately, it did rain most of the days I was here and was chilly as it was March, but the electric hook-up kept things toasty and warm inside the coach. The cell service got weaker at night, down to one bar occasionally, but still did not experience too many problems with hot spotting my computer and electronics.

“nice stay at a pretty location for small campers”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2017

This park is pretty but uneven and most sites are small. Reserve America takes reservations for this park and lists sites much larger than they are and as flat when they are anything but that. Most of the back in sites will fit a unit about half the size of the claimed size and you will need a lot of material to reach your stabilizers. The campground host wanted to move us to a different location but another group of campers switched their reserved pull through site as we would not fit the reserved location or the alternate recommendation, as advertised. I would stay again but recommend calling and speaking to someone at the park to see if you will fit the site you are inquiring on. Dump station available and water at some sites with 30amp hookups available. It is Hilly and pretty, although close to the highway and you will hear traffic. Some sites are much more accessible than others. The road navigation for over 30 ft campers may be hard to maneuver. Make sure you have a long enough hose as the water may be a bit further away at some sites than a 25 ft hose will reach. We were present for the Halloween activities and the place has quite a presentation for the kids. Pumpkin roll, crafts, site and costume contests and a haunted trail later on in the evening. Campers participated in trick or treating for the kids too. It was a great atmosphere. If I come again I will call ahead to verify our 37footer will fit before reserving.
