This is our first experience with this campground and would definitely stay here again. There are a lot of upgrades happening here and it shows. Many new cabins are being built, and the bathroom/bath house is new and very clean. We have a class B van and had no trouble getting into our spot, the water pressure was good and the provided WiFi from our spot (Site 2) was good. Rates in early summer 2023 were $55 on weekdays and $75 on weekends.

There are only two downsides to this campground. 1) It's a small park and they can only accept small rigs. As van owners, this works for us. The statement on their page about only accepting small rigs (Vans/truck campers) is justified. Not only is it a small park but maneuvering through the park would be tight for anything larger than a large truck camper. We did see a popup at a site and I can see that working ok, but anything larger than a teardrop would be difficult to maneuver. 2) No dump station. Fortunately, we have a cassette and this isn't a big problem for us but having a location to dump the gray water and cassette would be VERY helpful as small rigs have small tanks and need to dump more often.

In the end, we'd DEFINITELY stay here again.

This is a great little campground with water (good pressure) and 30amp (and 2 15amp plugs) sites. There are NOT sewer hookups at the sites, but there is a dump station near the bathhouse. We were able to book, pay, and check-in online; no need to go to the front desk. However, we did go to the front desk to say hi and checkout the building. There was a little cafe with several things to eat, a store, and someone to answer your questions about the park. Everything seems very relaxed an go-with-the-flow!

We highly recommend following their size recommendations for the sites; you will find these on the booking website. Some sites are tight to get into and you will have to park just right to use your slideouts. We didn't have any trouble driving our 31' class C around the campground, but wouldn't drive anything too much bigger through.

The bathrooms were very clean with hand soap and air dryers. There are individual showers with doors and a small changing area in each one. The water was hot and had good pressure.

There is a big grass area in front of the bathhouse that has cornhole and a pavilion with hook and ring toss games. There is a self-serve snack kiosk with some really good kettle corn. They have some frozen snacks, fire wood, flashlights and other basic essentials. You can pay with credit card.

The camp wifi was good at every site. We had no problem taking video calls and streaming throughout the day. Our verizon phones had good service with 35d/10u.

Overall, we definitely would come back and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!!
