We made a reservation here for 1 week in August and chose to come here because of the very high ratings. When we first arrived we were very impressed by the well manicured entrance way but were surprised to see they did not have a security gate or security to speak of. Their office was nice and well stocked, however the young man that checked us in was rather rude and snarky and wasn't able to answer many of our questions about our campsite. The roadways were very narrow but were paved and passable for our 34' fifth wheel but bigger rigs and inexperienced drivers will have difficulty. Our assigned campsite was very small and we asked to move but there was no other availability. We had to pull into the site across from us to straighten out, which angered them as we dug into their lawn with our tires. The campsite was very unlevel as well but had a nice cement patio picnic table and fireplace. On our site and many others the corners of the patios were broken off and just put back in place. They were very wobbly to stand on or walk over which I thought was very unsafe, especially for older individuals or children. The bath house closest to our campsite as well as the one behind the office left much to be desired and honestly I am unsure how the achieved such a high rating. For the majority of our stay they were quite dirty and the trash cans smelled like feces. Additionally they had quite a large number of damaged lights and fixtures. The showers were oddly pay showers and they did not work well and there was no hot water. I am unsure of the other restrooms as these were the only two we used. One of the breakers at our campsite failed during our stay and needed to be replaced but we have experienced that before, however when our sewer failed as well that was annoying. Being told that we could not dump for the remainder of our stay and would have to either use their dump station or pay for a pump out was rather upsetting. We complained to the owner and asked for a partial refund as we requested a full service campsite but she told that the sewer and non sewer campsites were the same price anyway so they would not issue a refund or even offer a free pump out for the inconvenience, she was quite rude as well. Our stay beyond these issues was sub-par at best. The free wifi they advertise is quite poor and did not work other than around 3am during the week and did not work at all on the weekend. The activities they had were decent for young children however the bingo for adults was cancelled and their dance was just appalling. We dealt with quite a large amount of noise at night even during their quiet times, which we complained about to no avail. There was copious amounts of alcohol consumption as well as the erratic driving of golf carts at high rates of speed, which was quite excessive even by camping standards. Quite a few young people and teenagers were drinking as well which we found concerning as they were doing it out in the open and no one seemed to care, even the owner and staff. The regular presence of town police driving around inside the campground, which we found somewhat disturbing, did not seem to quell this behavior. If we were to ever come here again it would be as a last resort and only for an overnight stopover. While the appeal score for their entrance area is fitting their restrooms, the facility overall, and the very poor customer relations as well as the amount of underage drinking and excessive noise was a complete turnoff for our family.
