We booked for the week before July 4th for a 7 night stay. What a disappointment! First, this is a place where there are 1175 sites and only maybe 100 or so are for campers, the rest are all seasonal (very similar to mobile homes). If you take a ride many are almost falling fown and have garbage all around them. As for camping, people on here are right when they say there is nothing to do. Most all places we stay have activities. Not here, only the swimming lake which does have paddle boats, a game room, and shuffleboard. The baseball field is overgrown with weeds and is being used as a storage facility for broken down trailers. I was charged an additional $50 for my third child. And a friend came to visit for one night with his son and was charged $36 when we called the office and asked what the charge was for and why the booklet said it was only $20 they were nasty and said we are not refunding any of the money. Bathrooms by our site closed at 7pm. No planned activities for kids. Mini Golf was horrible. Paid $4 per person for a little, dirty course. Paid 4.50 at the boardwalk the next day for an 18 hole pirate adventure. Nothing here to do but the lake. We stayed here also because of the no drinking in public places policy but this also was a lie. There was so much drinking on the beach it was annoying for those of use who don't drink. Also, the places was dirty. People not cleaning up after there pets, trash outside the dumpsters no trash pickup at your site. All in all paid almost $600 for 7 nights and got a lake to swim in. Disappointment. And all but the guard shack employees were nasty. Never again. Don't listen to these people who talk how great this place is. People live here and I only saw one set up for tent camping. Also paid extra for a lake front site and had a view of a building and bushes.
