    Absolutely an awesome and family friendly place to camp. The Owner greeting when you arrive and saying goodbye when you go. Staff is friendly and helpful. Park is clean and many things to do. While the lake is smaller than some it is sufficient for water activities and fishing. While I didn't catch the 'big one's was able to catch enough legal size. I see some complaints regarding pontoon prices. One must factor in fuel costs, wages, maintenance, cleaning, etc. I've seen rentals much higher Austin falls in the upper middle. Bingo was fun, wish it was more often. Kids really liked it. Reptile show was a hit. The road to amd from park is a bit narrow and bumpy, by design or what not sure. Other than that we will definitely be returning on a yearly basis. Really enjoyed our stay. Hope Bill will at the gate every time As he really makes the start of your vacation with a smile.

    It's a little rough road trip getting to it but when you are down there, it's a really nice place. Also no cell service to speak of. They do have WiFi though. We all had a great time swimming. They have a lot of other activities for the kids. Clean restrooms and showers. Handicap accessible. Nice picnic tables and shelters. Plenty of RV parking with full hookup.

    Great place, lots of fun but can be a bit pricey for larger families. My husband and I took our 2 kids plus my 2 siblings for a day and just for admission and wristbands was $120. Camping is pretty expensive too. $70-$90 per night seems a little steep. The tube slide was also not functioning properly so the kids were pretty disappointed about that. Also, not sure if anything can be done about it but the amount of mold on the life jackets and inflatables was a little concerning.

    Very nice campground. It is little ruff on the road to the camp but we made it. The sites are very well kept with a stamped pad for a patio. Everyone was friendly. We had a great time and so did our grand children.

    Pros: beautiful and well maintained with super fun stuff throughout the park. We had a great time with the amenities and enjoyed our time here with family and hiking! One of the better campgrounds I’ve ever been to. Cons: Was hoping the lake was bigger. We had big plans of renting a boat and tubing but due to the size of the lake we couldn’t spend the large rental price for such a small area. Some staff are very unfriendly and unhelpful. I got several eye rolls when asking if change could be made at the food place and store to cover the laundry change thing that was out of service. The golf cart we rented was set so low for the speed limit of 5 miles per hour it seemed to barely make it up the hill with our family. I had people upset behind me asking why we were going so slow when the pedal was to the floor. My son was not allowed to ride his child’s motorized scooter which is understandable if he was indeed swerving and being unsafe with it but when I asked the owner why scooters weren’t allowed he said because he doesn’t have a license or proof of insurance (mind you this is a kids motorized scooter nothing that would ever need either of those things) when I mentioned that it wasn’t listed that we couldn’t use it on the site he said well I’m the owner so it is what it is. If you don’t want something in your park you should state it on the website! Our shower was the worst I’ve ever used in the family area and ate a bunch of our change. It can only go up to 6 minutes and takes 2 minutes of that six to get warm! It shut off on my daughter because she added all the change at once since there was no note of needing to wait to add more and had to rinse her hair off in the sink. We would maybe come back if coming through the area to another destination. Although very eccentric and big on making sure everyone’s following all his rules the owner was nice. I found the majority of the people we encountered there and staff were not overly friendly. There isn’t much to do in neighboring towns besides the campground so I probably wouldn’t make a special trip again there.
