“Not big rig friendly”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2017

Overall Rating

This park is rated highly by Good Sams. It has a ton of positives but has way too many drawbacks. We have a 40' class A and I could barely get my rig between two large trees into my full service lot #61 with water, sewer and 50A power. Very tight. Branches from trees hung down to a height I could reach up and touch, which is about 8' but my rig is almost 13' high so had to plow through branches to park my rig. Hardly a level gravel pad in park, my coach could not level itself. Worst thing, a gun shooting range was about 100 yards from our coach, not 22 caliber but deer hunting caliber.. Our dog was traumatized beyond belief. Many positives but way too many negatives. We would not stay there again. Plus, they charge you 3% to use a credit card. Come on!!!! Read all reviews before staying.

“Nice park but sites are very close together.”

Overall Rating

We stayed here in the off season for 2 nights and we enjoyed it. The park was clean and well maintained. The bathroom/ shower house is older but very clean. There is a pool but it was closed while we were there. Since we were there so late in the season, the park was relatively quite and empty. This was a good thing because if the park would have been full, we would have been packed in like sardines. We had one neighbor in site 29A and after we opened the slide out, there was maybe 3ft between the two of us. If they had pulled in from the other direction, they wouldn't have had room to put out an awning. Additionally, the road in and out of the park is narrow and can really only fit one rig at a time. Another thing of note would be the loud and continuous gun fire at a nearby shooting range on Sunday mornings. We are both prior military have spent enough time on military bases that we can tune that noise out, but I can imagine that it would really bug some other people.

We stayed in a water/ electric site for $42 per night (a bit pricey, IMO) but they have full hook up sites for $45. It is a Good Sam park so you can get a small discount if you are a member.

Overall, we would come back but it would be in the off season again to avoid any possible congestion.
