Phenomenal place! Extremely clean, beyond nice, wonderful location, awesome staff around, and perfect for all ages and groups! Went out here with my wife, in-laws, and closest friends. We will definitely be back for sure! Beyond memorable and exciting!
We had a great time camping out all week! It would have been nice if the beach part had a full shower in it though. Other than that it was awesome! We were camping right by the kids play area and they were able to just go out and play on the equipment: I didn't see any problems with the equipment as everything was in working order. The bathrooms were kept up really nice at the campground and if anybody had a problem we could just call and they would fix it.
