We were sent to our "pull through" site for our 37' motor coach with a map and an arrow. The roads were single lane and tightened further by landscaping/fencing/vehicles from more permanent campers. Thanks to a resident we were finally able to find our not so pull thru site which was partially occupied by another pick-up. This resort is not designed for RVs of today and the utilities are equally outdated. We would not recommend it to anyone. The curb appeal makes the resort look real nice but the site design is terrible.

Love the campground - nice and homey with lovely trees. Only thing I was surprised to find was no cable and paying extra for internet. Can't use our digital antenna because of the lovely trees! :) Also the rate that was quoted to stay didn't include an additional charge for electric.

Made reservations at Ramblers Rest in January 2016 for a Class A motorhome Premium Site. We got there March 16 expecting to get a nice site. When I checked in the office clerk told me they had given away our site and said they would have to put us in a smaller site. I insisted on going to see it to make sure we could even get in to it. It was next to a "permanent resident" who had trash and junk everywhere even overflowing to our site. She was going to charge the same price for the smaller site as she had for the premium site. After insisting that I speak with the Manager she disappeared into the Manager's Office then came back and reduced the price by a whopping $5. Had it not been so late in the day we would have gone somewhere else. My husband had difficulty getting into the small, narrow site where we immediately found 3 big piles of dog poop! When we put out our slide we were on top of the trashy sites junk. The view was horrible unless you like looking at trash and old, rundown RVs with weeds sticking up everywhere. We will never stay here again! I would not recommend Ramblers Rest.

Lot where we parked was small and I wish we had taken time to pick site when the gal from park drove us to site before we parked. People camping were really nice and there were tons of activities. It was a cold month when we stayed and we really spent more time in the surrounding area. Pool was nice, kids in hot tub was my only complaint. Watch out for septic area in back, odor is pretty bad off and on. Walking at night was lovely, I would return! Sites were very muddy due to severe rains last winter. They did spread gravel when I pressured them but it took a couple weeks, that's the reason for the 4 stars.
