How to Read Good Sam Directory Ratings

The three-number rating that accompanies each campground listing in the directory gives readers an at-a-glance assessment of a campground's amenities, cleanliness and environment.

How to read the Good Sam Rating 10/10 /10.
All three ratings categories are measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.Less than 1 percent of parks or campgrounds receive the coveted 10 / 10 / 10 rating, which indicates superior facilities that are well maintained, clean, well-appointed restrooms and a highly appealing appearance.Campgrounds are inspected annually by dedicated RVers like you.

Completeness of facilities

10 / 10 / 10
The first campground rating evaluates completeness and quality of facilities.In this category we rate interior roads, sites, registration area, hookups, recreation, swimming, security, laundry, store and building maintenance.

We stayed two nights at this campground. The sites were so small, our awning was inches away from the trailer in the next site. The fire ring was large and square and only place to set it up was in the gravel driveway. Seasonal campers had a card to let them into the gate, unlike others, we were at the mercy of the woman in the office. You had to buzz to get in. She got mad if you buzzed twice, (after several minutes passed) and then had to take off the placard that is on the rearview mirror to show her. Bathrooms were old, and had a sign of a previous KOA campground. Woouldn't recommend this place. Surprised it got rated so high on Good Sam. This was our first experience going on the ratings of a Good Sam, and frankly am a bit nervous about trying another.

Don't bother staying here! I booked sites for me and 6 other campers. Two sites had no picnic tables, they were told by staff to find one and share it. Three sites had no fire rings. One site was so small could not get awning out all the way out. We had stayed there before and ask for specific sites because we were aware of some of the sites were so small that you could not put your awnings out. 2 of the sites were changed and our credit cards were charged before we even got there, the only time my card has been charged in advance is when we stay at a State Park. Last year's brochure is the same as this year and says it has a new swimming pool. We were told by staff the pool has never been opened (when I spoke with owner he said it opened last year after Labor Day).. The pump was broke and that was the reason the pool was not available this past weekend. The restroom in our section was an outhouse, not clean at all!! Staff is rude! It is so unfortunate the campground is run so poorly, the campground has allot of potential. The park was not full at all, so that tells you something, campers are not returning due to the lack of care and staff and owner not taking any responsibilities . Our group will not be returning! They need to maintain the park, reduce the amount of sites to make all the sites accommodating. Also, two sites had picnic tables that were a safety hazard, replace the darn things, for heaven sakes! It could be such a nice place, apparently the owner does not care. Good Sam needs to pay a visit.

Where to begin? From the moment we arrived to the minute we left our stay was horrible. We actually left a day early. We arrived to the tune of a very rude female staff member. She obviously doesn't enjoy what she does for a living. The site we reserved was given to someone else because they didn't like the plugin and arrived the day before us. The camp site was so small that we had to put our awning in if we wanted to use the fire pit. The amenities the campground claims are a joke. Coffee shop- a coffee maker and a coffee machine that was available in the site office but after 10am. Game room- when you walk into this place it immediately takes your breath away. This is from the odor of mold and mildew. None of the games claimed were actually functioning. I wasn't there with the intent to hang out in the game room but it would have been nice to take the kids for something to do. Ice cream shop- a small freezer of 4 different types of ice cream which is located in the park office too. So you get ice cream at the leisure of the unfriendly office staff. Pool- not open and the size of my backyard pool but for a 1000 people. Swim pond- it was disgusting to put it nicely. There were approximately 10000 tadpoles in it and made it impossible to get the kids to go in to swim. Bathrooms- Good Sam's list these at 10*. This is just ridiculous. Again I can't begin to tell you how crappy these facilities were. The shower that wouldn't drain and filled up with the soap scum, hair and all the other disgusting things everyone before you left. We won't talk about the toilets, floors and sinks.
The biggest problem with the place besides all the things listed above was the female staff member. When she wasn't treating you like crap she was walking around screaming at kids and embarrassing people at the entry gate.
Overall this place stinks. I would give up camping before going back to this place. Good Sam's should be embarrassed to have made the rating claims it gave this place and has me reconsidering my membership because of it.

If you're traveling with children and looking for something family friendly, stay away from this park! If I could give negative stars I would. This might be our worst Good Sam park experience ever. With the exception of the pool (new in June 2016) the pictures on the website are bordering on fraudulent. They are certainly misleading. Pretty much everything was in disrepair. The mini-golf was a so broken down as to be unusable, the bounce pillow wasn't working. The 'pond' disgusting. Our site was basically just a dirt/gravel lot and it was very very small. The 'transient' sites are off on the side near the dumpsters (but close to the pool). With the terrain and the sewer pipe extension, our coach wouldn't drain...even with the jacks fully extended. This place is probably 95% seasonal. You can tell that it used to be a KOA and was probably pretty nice once upon a time...but not any more. We were supposed to stay 4 nights but we left after just one. The staff wasn't around when we left at 10AM so we left a note and then a VM. I called them two weeks later looking for some sort of refund/resolution. They had no idea what I was talking about. They're claiming some policy that doesn't exist from what I can tell. Worst staff ever! I'm skeptical that we'll get a refund of any sort.

Staff not friendly, had a reverse polarity (or faulty ground wire) at our site, maintenance unable to understand problem so had to plug in at next site. Many seasonals but they were friendly and quiet. They kept their sites looking well. Many activities for kids.

We stayed for two nights with our grandchildren. I was very disappointed in the facility especially after it was so highly rated by Good Sam's. The new pool is nice, but the rest of the amenities were either in poor condition or closed. The sites are some of the tiniest I have ever seen. There wasn't even room to set up chairs outside of the camper. I would not recommend staying here. Looks much better on the website than it is!
