We stayed in cabin #9 this past weekend and my kids did not want to leave! They loved the pool, jump pillow, splash pad and game room. The property was very clean and the cabin had everything we needed. The people working the front desk who I think were the owners were very friendly and helpful. They were able to...

Scout friendly a big plus but hardly a resort. Did have a pool that looked clean. Sites were bare patches of dirt but was a value! Easy reservations and folks were friendly enough on the phone. Did not get to see them as we arrived late and departed early. Game room was good.

Read the reviews and thought we'd give it a try even though there were a few bad ones. Well folks, stick with the bad ones. I agree with the comment regarding pictures ... The place is NOTHING, like the photos. I'm not sure when the grass had been cut last. Hard to tell the defined area of the sites. Very...

Hello, and thanks for taking the time to review the campground. We would like you to know that we are under new ownership, as of May 22nd, 2014. The issue of being creepy, weedy, and undefined are things that we are proactively working to correct, and we hope that you will try Prospectors RV Resort again, in the future.

My stay at this resort was very disappointing. The lady at the desk was rude at all times of the day, and talked badly about other guests. The owner was walking around and seemed to be drunk and very violent with people, and used strong profanity. The campground was however clean, just not the type of place I would take...

We stayed three nights in cabin #7 and found it to be exactly as described on the website. We're not "campers" (but thought we'd try it!) so we were pleased it was clean and maintained. Our arrival was a bit stressful since there isn't good cell service in the area (for our GPS) and we were arriving after 10 pm...

We are so pleased that your visit to Prospectors RV Resort was a great one. Sorry to hear that you were unable to enjoy the splash pad. :( I would like to inform you that it is working, and we have even rebuilt it this season, to make it better, safer, and more fun for your next visit. Thanks again.

We stayed at the "resort" on July 8th and 9th. It was a very disappointing experience. We were tent camping. Thankfully, the campsite was almost empty other wise we would have been camping right on top of other people-the sites were so close together. When we checked in I was barely greeted by a less than enthusiastic young lady. The...

“We liked they way site 68 was tucked behind a cabin and had alot of trees around it. Site 71 is good for privacy as there is your camper between you and the site 70 and no other sites on the other side. Any of the wooded section sites you can't go wrong with; just tell Josie what you are looking for and she will reserve you the best available.”
