This place says the motto is pamper the camper. It is far from it. They are very rude and treat the campers horrible. We were to stay a month or so and left in 2 days. Please don't make the mistake we did. The Managers are hot headed and rude.

Just stayed at the campground. Sites are large/oversized. Bathrooms and showers are nice. A lot of the sites are all grass/dirt. So if it is rainy, count on the sites on the creek being muddy. Wi-fi is dismal/awful. Camp management griped about the heavy use anymore by campers overloading their system. Get used to it. Its a mobile world out...

I loved it. We (grandpa, myself, two kids, two old dogs) went camping there 3 weeks ago. We were initially just passing through, but ended up staying 3 days because we loved it so much!
