Great location, activities! Always feel safe & had a great time. Kids love it & they enjoy the outdoors. We enjoyed everything. People are behaved & still enjoy some having drinks with friends. I would highly recommend going to amboy yogi bear!

Lots of activities, great haunted house and facilities were clean. We were here in May and just as much fun minus the haunted house, we rented a golf cart from MSK and was able to enjoy the woods and fishing area's.

We have attended the Halloween camp weekend many years and this one we had multiple negative experiences: 1) I checked in after hours and the staff member Toni was very rude and not helpful; 2) Prices keep rising but quality continues to fall; 3) Update is needed in bathrooms

Allocate camp sites for large Families allowing 2 tents on the site for a different price. Driving golf carts should end at 9. Unable to sleep after 10 due to golf carts driving by with loud music. Not pleasant.

We've been staying annually for the Halloween weekend a couple years now. Activities are great. Love the trick-or-treating and costume contests, although the contest can be a bit more organized. Was extremely disappointed that they took away Candy Bar Bingo. Our kids really look forward to it every year. It would be nice to have the schedule email to us...

Really like this campground and is very well kept however travel trailers do not fit on site 1402. There is a large tree right in the center. Thank goodness the campers at 1400 &1401 let us pull onto their site.

There was no one at the entrance or desk when I arrived. Paperwork took forever. No "welcome to the campground, we're happy you're here have a nice time" NOTHING. I asked about scheduling for next year and was told Monday, then upon check out I was told Tuesday. No staff communication, and everyone is crabby and rude.
