This camp is really nice and elegant. If you are looking for a more upscale kind of camping then this would be the spot to check out! It said premier when we were looking for campsites nearby and tried it out. Because of how much there is makes sense on the price. They have a ton of amenities and activities to do that caters to all ages. The staff was very professional and super helpful. Saying things were always clean would be an understatement, everything from the facilities to the utilities were immaculate! This is a great place that offers a really nice camping experience, more of a resort in my opinion but worth trying out! - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
