We took our own RV. Downside: Our spot was difficult to get into. Not much room. It rained one night and we were in a mud pit. The park was noisy until around 11pm. There was a strong sewage smell in the area where people with their personal RVS stayed at times. The pool was overcrowded. Would be nice if...

I read all the reviews for this campground before booking. My biggest concern was the length of time required to check-in. This turned out to be a none issue, as we were greeted and checked in within seven minutes. I did call before arrival, however, to inquire about renting a golf cart and was on hold for 25 minutes. That,...

Just got back from a week long stay and we LOVED it here. I love how the lots are wooded, clean and had plenty of space from your neighbor. The campground bathhouses were kept clean and are air conditioned. Camp store was well stocked incase you forget anything. Plenty for kids to do with free mini golf, swimming in pool,...

This is the nicest campground I've ever seen. The shuttle to Holiday World runs every 20 minutes. They sell discounted tickets. The staff is helpful and friendly. The sites are wooded and spacious. The general store is huge and clean. I strongly recommend this campground.

Thank you for reviewing your stay! We have been taking measures to work on many of our older Rental RVs and even replaced 20 of them this year. It is in our plans to replace more as we progress. Even with our new ownership we have kept many of the same core full time staff members that have been here...

A large campground with many amenities including a pool and water slide. Rentable golf carts for you to utilize to move around instead of driving or walking the entire campground. Most sites are full hook ups for your pleasure. Shuttle service to the adjacent Holiday World/Splashing Safari amusement park.
