The best we have ever stayed at. Impeccably clean and neat, beautiful grounds, chickens roaming free and free fresh tomatoes. Courteous owners on site. Quiet and shaded large pull through sites. Lovely park and great price at $37. Well worth it. No restaurants close, But we carry our own food anyway. Easy on and off freeway.. Dog fenced area was enjoyed by our dogs. Swings for the kids we arrived in Oct so the pool was closed but it looked to be a good size. Lots of grassy areas. Will definately come back to this one.

Wonderful setting, clean & beautiful surroundings. We had a lovely site. We would stay here again but we would ask for a site where we could get satellite. With so many trees - there is no way we could get a connection. Thanks for a nice place to park.

What a great campground! Upon arrival we were given fresh eggs - the owners, who are lovely and take pride in their camp, explained they had chickens in the back and the eggs were free. There was a sign on the door that they prefer cash or check but they were willing to take a credit card if that's what I preferred. The grounds are gorgeous - spotless and welcoming - with areas of activities for children of all ages, that are all well maintained. Internet was easy to access, but no cable - decent over-the-air signal though. The chickens do roam freely - the owners explained different breeds lay different colored eggs and that some, if you go to them, will squat down for you to pick them up and pet them. We'd readily stay here again - you feel welcomed from the moment you arrive!

About the only thing we missed was cable. No cable here, so you to use the antenna or satellite or dvd. Place very clean, you can tell the owners take pride in their park. Nice play ground for the kids, pool is big and clean. Ice cream bars at the office, what more could you ask for. They do prefer cash over credit and debit cards. We stayed here on our return trip from up north.
