Campland on the Bay this last summer was such a great experience, I've been telling everyone about it! I figured it was time to write them a good review. We stayed for a week, and we were pretty busy the whole time! I've taken my son and nephews to family-friendly camps in the past, and some of them were okay, but there were normally dead points during the week. Campland Bay did a great job at keeping everyone at every age engaged. The boys loved the concerts and shows they held; it was really refreshing to see live bands perform and the music was all family-friendly and easy to get into! I actually still have a few tunes stuck in my head. The camp also had a full calendar of adult activities which were all well organized; I did a few games of pickle ball and loved our yoga sessions with Nazli. We didn't have time to do everything of course, but we did get on the water a lot, jet skiing and kayaking which is so fun to do with the instructors on staff. Overall, the entire camp was very well put-together and a real treat for adults looking for an easy and enjoyable way to keep their kids active and engaged. - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
