My family stayed here for Labor Day weekend. As expected, the campground was busy for the holiday. The first thing we noticed is that the campground is very tight for maneuvering. If you have a larger travel trailer or RV, this isn't the campground for you. We have a 33 ft trailer and we weren't sure we would make it into our back in site. First, the good things about the park:
- Lots of activities for the kids including ice cream social, tye die t-shirt project, slip and slide, line dancing, etc.
- Nice playgrounds.
- Very family friendly generally - the campground was quiet at night, people were respectful of kids riding bikes and playing on the road, and there wasn't any partying that we noticed.
The not so good:
- The bathrooms were not very clean. Considering how many tent sites they have the bathrooms are undersized and overused. The staff that came to clean them each day were in and out within 5 minutes. Certainly not enough time to clean them to any degree. My husband went to use the showers in the bath house one morning and someone had pooped in the shower. Gross!
- The marina area had a lot of dead fish floating in it. By a lot I mean dozens. I'm not sure what killed them, but it made us not want to take our boats out.
- We decided to take the kids to the pool on Sunday and got everyone suited up and everything packed up and drove down to the pool only to find it closed. According to park staff not enough pool staff showed up to open it. Our kids were VERY disappointed.
- There is a stream that runs by many of the campsites, but the banks had not had any weed trimming done in a few weeks and so the kids had to go through the weeds to play in the creek.
- The check in process was kind of weird. When you come to the sign that says "Campground" there is also a sign that says "No left turn". You have to drive down the road past the campground to the marina, pull into the parking lot, go into the marine/camp store to check in, then drive back up the road to the campground.
We were pretty underwhelmed by this campground. Considering there are other campgrounds in the area that are much nicer: Carter Caves, Grayson, etc. we probably wont go back to this campground.
