Overall Rating

It's not all bad, but bad enough that I wouldn't go back. From the start, things are not promising. The road long winding road into the park is very narrow and bumpy, and trees and wires hang over the road very low, so our RV was getting hit with branches.

Then you wind around forever to get to the office, then wind around back to your spot. It is nerve-wracking if you have a big RV (ours is a 37 ft 5th wheel).

The spots are tiny and narrow, and ours was not level, so that was a challenge, too.

This is a big, sprawling park. I would estimate that over 98% of the park is not RVs, it is mobile homes permanently anchored in place. There are maybe a couple dozen spots for people who are not permanent out of the hundreds in the park. This would not be a problem, except even those few dozen spots seem to be people who are back every weekend and all know each other. And they are there to party. All night. VERY loud. There is no enforcement of quiet hours, so either prepare to stay up or have a good white noise source in your RV.

There is a beach, and it looked sandy, but my family said it was just rocks.

There is a lake, but it is really just a glorified swamp.

It's not all bad, though.

There are lots of mature trees. You are far away from the road, so it is quiet when the other people are not partying and yelling (that is mostly on weekends).

The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The permanent people seem to care about the place and take good care of their own places. The sprawling nature of the park means if you want to walk you can go all over the place and not repeat your walk.

Overall, though, the noise and party atmosphere spoiled it for me. We do this full-time, I cannot be kept away by drunks with bad taste in music until 2AM.
