Staff were friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were up to date and spotless. Had no trouble maneuvering our 30' fifth wheel. The park is small but very nice. We enjoyed the boardwalk through the swamp, and the river is beautiful. Lots of things to do nearby and good restaurants too. We'll definitely be back!
One of my favorite places to camp. The lots are maintained and the grass is always cut....which is important to me, and always a tree to hang my hammock in. The bath house is convenient and always supplied with tissue. But I absolutely love the boardwalk along the river with the huge trees hanging over. I'll "fish" with hubby, but really just enjoy the atmosphere and the beautiful trees.
