08/06/2016 We stayed there this weekend and couldn't have had a better experience even if we had tried. The place is fantastic and especially if you have children to camp with. The staff were amazing (Justin and wife) were really sweet and caring. We had a minor problem when we checked in at our site but within minutes they were...

This is our 4th summer here. It's been our favorite place to stay hands down. They just changed from Jellystone to Imagination Mountain and it's even better. Same great ownership and staff. Even more to do. It's clean, cozy and has enough for both kids and adults. We are already looking forward to 2017.

We had a blast at Imagination Mountain!!! Our family of 6 (children ages 2, 7, 10, 11) rented a cabin over 4th of July weekend. Although we wished we could have stayed longer, it felt like the kids got to try everything! Activities are all centrally located and easy to find. The kids pretty much had free roam of the...

First time campers at this campground, and it won't be the last. We were right on the creek. The Landry's keep the grounds orderly and maintained along with the bathrooms that are very clean. There are activities for children along with a life size chess board, miniature golf, game room, ice cream parlor and outdoor pool. 7PM movie on the...

Owned and ran by a great family that keep their campground impeccable. Everything is well maintained and up to date. Most sites on the river where the kids have an awesome time! Very peaceful and not a huge campground. Every spot is great. They also have efficiency cabins that are new just the last several years for those non campers...

We stayed here in June, 2016 with two young children and had a blast. This is ideally suited for families with young kids - the amenities are all geared for families. Free mini-golf, a heated pool, playgrounds, hammocks, a beautiful creek, evening activities and more. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful, from helping us choose a site on...

The people, the price, the grounds, the location, the activities...everything about this place was awesome! We weren't too sure what to expect since we had never stayed on a campground. This place took all of our worries away. You get the camping experience without the inconvenience of no electricity and no bathroom. They have several different styles of cottages and...

From the time we arrived I knew we had picked the right place. Everybody was so nice. Dave helped me set up the motor home, and even made me a hook up for the cable tv. I've been all over the country and this is one of the best places we've ever stayed. You know it's good when, weeks later,...

We stayed in the Big Bear cabin. It was spacious, clean and accommodated our family of 5. We had coffee daily on our sunpoarch and drank coffee while listening to the babbling brook. There is a great hiking trail onsite that leads to the Applachian Trail (7.9 miles one way). Its a moderate trail. Plenty to do onsite. Horseshoes, corn...
