I would’ve given a zero if I could their policy is no refunds for cancellations or changes in your reservation. They stole $75 from me because of dental and mechanical issues we were unable to keep our reservation. The reservation cancellation was made with 25 days notice they should’ve returned my deposit terrible terrible policy very... more

I camped here for one night with family and it was very nice. My site was not level, but I could have fixed that easily. There are some really nice sites in this campground that have a canopy of trees. The sites are close together, but it allowed for some conversation with neighbors. The park has a playground, nice restrooms with plent... more

We have camped here for several years never had a bad experience until now. We had made reservations shortly after had found out that we have something else we had to do that weekend. Within a couple of days of making the reservation I had to cancel but they will not refund me. I was told we would have a credit that has to be used by 12/31/2023. I explained that I was not sure if we will be able to camp there before the end of the year,, I was told that this was their policy and there was nothing that could be done. I would understand if it was just a couple days prior to our reservation date but it is literally almost 2 weeks before hand and it was cancelled within a couple days after making the reservation. Also just looked at the conformation receipt for the cancellation and they deducted $7.00 for the cancellation which I was not told would happen.
