I and my family happened upon this campground we stayed the week. We found the people, mostly locals, to be very nice and welcoming.. but the staff and non management gave promises and did not follow through they sent emails out but with no WiFi available we did not receive these emails. All they had to do was stop by...

This review is disheartening, but we thank you for your feedback. We are sympathetic to your disappointment in losing a site with us, when it’s our goal to create experiences which result in happy campers. We actively seek opportunities for personal interactions with those who stay with us. And we recall having numerous contacts with you and your family over...

Nice local park we rented a boat and went fishing. Was not too busy. Nice staff. We visited last summer. Definitely going to have to visit again. They have lots of events for campers throughout the summer.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the feedback. Know that in the off-season we are busy making things better, and we look forward to offering improvements when we open again in 2017.

I got the feeling that the owners are very concerned about reviews of their property (as I would be!). I can only review based on our own experience. Please be aware that there are very few RV campsites in this area. That being said, we were happy to find this one and these comments are based on our one night...

Thank you for your feedback. We are sad to be a disappointment in any way to folks who stay with us. Though you were only passing through for one night, this is a much longer term investment for us. And had we been able to have a conversation with you prior to this review, we would have discussed the work...

We spent two Saturday nights here while traveling through the area in a large Motorcoach. The location is lakeside, with a pretty view. The people working there and staying there were very friendly. We happened to be there when they had a dinner with music and raffles. The food and company were great, and they made us feel welcomed. The...

Thank you for your review Margie. We appreciate the feedback. And, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also, for acknowledging the work we're conducting to improve our park. We are still performing this work in off-season, but we are excited about the upcoming 2017 season. We apologize for the spotty wifi. Out of our control, our Verizon...

This RV park is on a beautiful little lake. The sites are average. We did not use baths or laundry. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. We plan to stay again this month, but may have to cancel. The only reason for the 4 was goose poop, which I guess, is hard to control

Thank you Dopey, for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us in 2016! We try to make a place for everyone, including the wildlife here. Regrettably, goose poop may sometimes be a part of that experience. Geese are not limited to rural settings like ours. They can be found taking up residence in urban areas such...

This was our second visit to Clayton Park. We tent camped here last year, but there is no longer tent camping. This trip we stayed in a rental (the Pet Palace) and we brought our two small dogs. We love Clayton Park because it's right on the lake - and is very beautiful! This is a quiet, relaxed campground -...

Thank you so very much!!!! We enjoyed sharing our backyard with you and your family. Your little boys were very well behaved and we're so glad you got to spend time fishing together. We're sad you'll be going south, but you never know if you're life's road will bring you back here in the future...we hope so. Best of luck...

A great place to stay at the end of the day. Wish we had booked another night or two. The campsites were well done and there was a lot of privacy. The grounds were well kept and the staff was great. Would certainly return in in the area.

It is recommended to take exit 8 off the Interstate,. It's the shortest route. Once we turned off the Interstate we had another 6 miles to this place. When we called ahead to make reservations, we were told there were no full hook-up sites available. Needing a site for the night we settled for just water and electric. When we...

SonyGee, Owner at Clayton Park Recreational Area, responded to this review

With all due respect sir, it's difficult when folks don't speak with us about their experience and post a public review that's below par for what's normal for our campground. Hence, upon evaluating your review, we don't understand why our park received a 3 star rating. I and my husband, the manager you referred to as miraculously showing up and...

We had a wonderful weekend here! It's a beautiful campground on Lake Henry. Plenty to do such as kayaking and fishing or just relax. The staff and owners are all very friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back!

My wife & I have been living in our MH for 4 months, new campground every night. This is the first campground I've ever seen that takes 5 pages of rules, BOTH SIDES, SINGLE SPACED. Oh, I overstated that - the back side of the last page was the map. There is something wrong here. Signs everywhere about what you...

We are thankful for all feedback received, as it helps us improve our park. Of course, we always hope that everyone who chooses to stay with us has an experience they will look back on with a smile...we spend the majority of our time considering the comfort of others, and sacrificing our own to do so. Hence, it greatly disappoints...
