“It's a big, loud, busy, private campground...”

Reviewed Jun 24, 2016

Overall Rating

Let me preface this review with saying that I'm really not into big private campgrounds. I definitely am more of a woodsy, quiet campground kind of guy. That being said, I'll try to be objective in my review.

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend, so it's probably the busiest that this campground can possibly get. It was completely full and was definitely crowded and loud. This campground is a private, members only campground...so you can't just come in off of the street. It's something along the lines of $500/yr for membership and about $11/nt for camping for full hookup sites for members. Not a bad deal if you live in the area and this kind of campground is your thing.

We were here camping with family who are members. They have a portion of the park that is reserved for guests. It is a grassy area in the back of the park with electric/water hookups. The sites here are solid grass and extremely unlevel. It rained a lot and there was a good bit of mud.

The park has a lot to offer as far as amenities. They have an indoor and an outdoor pool, a minimalist workout gym, 9 hole disc golf course, miniature golf, shuffle board, a few playgrounds, paddle boats, a real store that offers camping supplies (they actually had good prices on camper repair parts!), and a restaurant. As far as amenities, they have a lot. The campground has lots of trees and a nice lake, though the lake did stink pretty badly.

The full hookup sites were mainly pull-thru and were gravel. Like most private campgrounds, the sites were close together.

Overall, if you like private campgrounds with full hookups, it's not bad for what it is. It's not a parking lot with an obligatory tree every 30 feet and has a lot to offer. My mediocre review is more reflected by the fact that we prefer more space and the fact that the campground was VERY rowdy while we were there. Our neighbors felt the need to party very loudly and get drunk well into the night each night we were there. Quiet hours are 11pm here which I though was odd.
