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.

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.

Stayed for 7 nights with 5 other member RVs from our small Good Sam RV group. One of our group had to cancel for personal reasons, which left a site open in the middle of our 6 campers. With MANY MANY other sites available, the management put 2 different 2 night campers into the spot right in the middle of our group, which disrupted both our group and the other campers. The WiFi service is a joke, only accessible between midnight and 7AM, showing minimal bandwidth even with "STRONG" signals. There is NO cell phone service, with either AT&T or Verizon, so communications back home are out of the question unless you drive 3 miles outside the campground. We were assigned "PREMIUM BACK IN SITES" along the creek, but some were too narrow to open awnings or slides. The swimming pool water was discolored, as was the water at the campsites (my water filter was new, but even after running the water continued to be brown). We expected MUCH MORE for $50/night. None of us would return here. On the plus side, the bath houses were clean and tidy (air conditioning would have helped), and the staff was friendly and cordial.

Our site was next to a scenic creek but it was poorly maintained with no drainage so due to the fact that we had heavy rain on several days, our site turned into a giant mud puddle. With six inches of water and mud covering the ground outside our door, we could not put out a mat and chairs. As if that was not bad enough, there was lousy wifi and no cellular service! Forget this place unless you just want a short getaway and don't mind putting up with some really bad infrastructure. The plugs for the sewer hookups consisted of two-liter soda bottles filled with water and stuck into the pipes. They advertise pizza in the camp store, and then they close the store at five PM so you have to eat early if you want to purchase a pizza. Aside from mowing the lawn and emptying the trash, they do no maintenance and the entire place appears to be in a state of steady deterioration.
