We spent two nights at a cabin during Bluegrass Festival. Enjoyed being creekside, unfortunately it was also roadside too (lots of traffic). Bathroom/showers very old, but clean. Cabin was better than tent because of A/C. Beware......you are required to purchase tickets each night you stay during festival.

This place says the motto is pamper the camper. It is far from it. They are very rude and treat the campers horrible. We were to stay a month or so and left in 2 days. Please don't make the mistake we did. The Managers are hot headed and rude.

Just stayed at the campground. Sites are large/oversized. Bathrooms and showers are nice. A lot of the sites are all grass/dirt. So if it is rainy, count on the sites on the creek being muddy. Wi-fi is dismal/awful. Camp management griped about the heavy use anymore by campers overloading their system. Get used to it. Its a mobile world out...

We spent 2 nights here along our trip. The park is very clean and well maintained. They have a pool as well as a pond and stream to fish in if you purchase a license. There are only a few bathrooms for this park of 300 sites. The showers are small and the water temperature fluctuates if someone flushes the...
