This campground promotes a hostile and unsafe environment. This campground caters to the seasonal campers. If you read the other posts, you will also see the issues this campground has.
It took me a while to write this review. But after reading all the other post, I decided to write it. First if you notice, there are no responses from the owners on any of the reviews. There are a lot, I mean, a lot of seasonal campers that keep their spot all year.
We picked this campground so that we could hike Baxter State Park, the beginning of the AT and it had great Verizon service. We were told that it was adult weekend and that the only rule that did not apply was no quiet hours. Also the owner was very adamant, no kids. We arrived on Thursday. Our first impression was that this was a beautiful park. Our space was very packed down gravel level spot with plenty of room. On Friday a camper pulled into the spot next to us. One of the responses from this camper was, “the only difference this weekend is that there will be karaoke and a dance”. There were several groups of seasonal campers that brought younger kids. The campground filled up, my husband and I walked the campground and several different groups of the seasonal campers welcomed us. They were very friendly. Some invited us to party with them. One group of seasonal campers were playing beer pong. My husband and I was invited in for a shot of fireball. There were decorative banners and posters of female private parts, men private parts, and female doing sexual services to a guy hanging.
After dark we attended the karaoke. There was a very drunk guy that kept pestering me about dancing with him. I basically told him no. I did not want any controversy or incident to happen. After we left the karaoke, we walked back over to the previous group that was playing beer pong. The group had a contractor telescoping light extended and blasting the whole area with light. They had erected a circus tent. The music was very loud. We met a guy that was a previous member of the motorcycle group called the outlaws. If you don’t know who the Outlaws are? Look them up. Maybe he still was one. He sported their tattoo and also responded that he could get us escorts by the outlaws or anything that we needed. After a while a male gay couple walked up. My husband and I befriended the male gay couple. After about an hour and more partying and drinking, the tattooed motorcycle guy started gay bashing the gay couple. It was very offensive, and my husband felt that it might become unsafe for us to stay there. However, I was gone to my campsite with one of the gay guys to get him a drink. Upon return I was asked to go get the other gay guy to let him know what was going on, feeling that something terrible might happen. I was directed to a popup camper. I knocked on the door. The boyfriend of the owner of the camper on that site opened the door. They were doing pot in the camping and maybe something else. The guy was very loud and obnoxious. This person immediately proceeded to get in my face, and I was knocked to the ground. I said to the guy several times that all I was wanting to do was talk to the gay guy. My husband came over when he heard the commotion. There was an altercation. My husband was knocked to the ground. Next thing there was a group of people surrounding us. The owner who was parting and drinking with them came over and immediately asked us to go back to our campsite. The next morning my husband went to talk to the owner but he basically didn't care. We packed up and left. I did not want to be in this type of environment. We will not ever come back to this campground. I can give you my opinion, but I don’t think that is needed. You can just read my review.
