Beautiful grounds with plenty of shaded sites to enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature. It is very spacious, well maintained and makes the perfect family getaway.

It was fine and accommodating and staff was nice and friendly. I wasn’t very impressed with the upkeep. RV sites are very close and unkept. The picnic tables and bbq pits are in poor condition. The cabins looked very basic as if they are unfinished storage sheds. I guess this place is basically just a fishing camp. The bathroom could stand to be updated and needed a bet more cleaning. Sorry to be negative.

Floor was dirty with dead bugs.

Our stay was terrific! The showers stayed nice and hot and the cabin stayed nice and cool! A playground for the kids and other things too do. Campgrounds were exactly as I remembered as a kid. The only complaint I had is the cabins are NOT pet friendly! Pets are not allowed in the cabins which we managed by letting them stay in the car during the heat of the day. We drove 2 1/2 hours just to find out our dogs had to stay outside or we would be asked to leave. Unfortunately, this will cause us to not return but would definitely recommend it to anyone without pets.

Quiet remote rustic spot. Small park. Grass spot was hard to level. But beautiful. Very nice owners.

Alicia Rueter

Beautiful place but I do Not recommend the cabins/storage buildings for the price. The mattresses with the plastic covers are very uncomfortable plus you bring all your own liens. Then the cabins have not been cleaned. We found beer cans under the bed and dead bugs all over the floors. If you are bringing your Rv it is great and beautiful and that will be the only way we come back.

We stayed two nights in their tiny home. It was a wonderful experience. Kyle and his staff were very hospitable. It is a great place to get away away to fish and just relax. There is no highway or city noise.

Great place!! Fishing is pretty good most of the time, clean bathrooms and clean cabins!!

Sally Broussard

Rather substandard facility. Spaces were not clearly marked or designated and the whole park had an unkempt feel about it.

Michelle Shong

First time in an rv… loved the ease of camp ground living! Very relaxing… beautiful sites… and quiet evenings…

Gary Bender

Nice weekend getaway that’s easy to get to. Tranquil evenings with the recent weather offering opportunities for a camp fire and s’mores. Wildlife abounds with sightings of deer regularly. Access to Lake Limestone makes this a place for family adventures.

This place is great. I have rented a cabin here a few times. This place has a summer camp feel to it. The cabins are all within 20 feet of each other. So renting multiple cabins for a big family reunion or something would be fun. There are bathrooms within close proximity with hot clean showers. Dispite having a cabin and a bathroom close by you are camping. I don't think a lot of ppl realized that when they posted their review. Bring bedding, lamps, firewood, and other camping supplies however much firewood you are bringing... Double it. It can be a bit spooky. So ghost stories around the camp fire would be absolutely required. Have fun!!

The RV marina is in transition. New owner is making improvements. Good place to stay with access to Lake Limestone . Bit pricey for amenities. Small store only open Thursday through Sunday at this time.
