My family wanted to find a new place to get away and fish. This wasn't the place, one was fly fishing and caught 2 really small fish, 1 got a nibble and that's it for a majority of 3 days. Other campers were complaining about the fishing as well. For a place that advertises great fishing all over their flyers...

First time back to Marval in many years. Place has been completely renovated, many new cabins and play areas. River was not flowing, but still managed to catch a few keepers. Staff was friendly, helpful.

I have been visiting MarVal for years and years (before cabins even had restrooms in them)! I love all of the new activities that's available for our kids. The staff is always on patrol which is nice in some ways...but a bit over bearing at times! You can no longer bring your own golf cart so if you want to...

Been going to Marval for many years and the last few it has been going downhill. Back when Marvin and Valarie owned it we loved going here to camp and fish. Nowadays with a corporate ownership it has been slipping down a little every year. Sure it's much bigger than before if you love crowed camping areas this will fit...

Wonderful secret for couples with a heart shaped hot tub cabin complete with everything! Even cooked a turkey for Thanksgiving! Great place for families as well with night time activities like outdoor movies. Fishing along the river, pool, mini golf, great country store with great variety. All over great experience! Never disappointed!

Can't say enough great things about this place. They are so incredibly organized when you pull up to check in. They escort you to your spot. The entire park is clean, clean, clean. There are so many things for the kids to do. And we just love the Trail of Terror. Looking forward to coming back again!

Last weekend was our 3rd year to spend a weekend in October at Marval. Just like previous years, we enjoyed every minute. The moment our grandkids (and their parents) see the Marval sign and we turn down the road smiles break out and laughter and excitement fill the air. We all agree, the only thing we don't like is packing...

WE had a blast going thru the Trail of Terror to passing out Halloween Treats to over 150 Trick or Treaters. We entered my dog in the Costume contest and enjoyed watching all the campers that dressed up in some very cool and original costumes. Many campers decorated their campsites with Halloween decor and it was fun to walk around...

Beautiful campsites, friendly staff. Very family oriented. Clean restrooms, plenty for all to do. They have cabins available if you do not have a camper. We will be returning in October for Halloween with our grand children.
