Campground Reviews

Jun 14, 2013
Very quite and relaxing
Jun 14, 2013
the campground is clean, quite and affordable. we stay here as a base camp and head into downtown by train each day (crystal lake station) so not much time is spent at camp other than a quick breakfast and a good nights sleep.

The WiFi was slow, but otherwise, everything else was great.

Lovely people, lovely well-maintained site and location. Very poor Internet connection. The only drawback: it's hard to use the timed faucets that cut off every few seconds.

My family had a great stay this past weekend. The only change I'd make would be to have the candy hunt right at dusk/8:30pm instead of 9:30pm. That time is a little too late for my 3 year old's bedtime. Other than that, loved your facility and will definitely be coming back later this summer!

A lovely camp, with great and friendly people running it. Too bad it was cold and rained every day and night during our stay. We'll be returning and hoping for better weather soon.

It is a very quiet campground and we liked the security gate. The people running the campground are very friendly and helpful. They have extra room for activities and games.

Major improvements and upgrades in this park over the past year or two. Friendliness, personality and helpfulness of the owners are second to none!

It was one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed at- clean, well kept, flat sites, great service!

Our stay was very nice to be a part of the natural environment. My family and I enjoyed the rustic cabin and its amenities. We especially thought the outlining beauty of the gorgeous hanging plants throughout the park--very nice!!! Thank You--the Art Muro and family. Thank you for

My wife, kids and I brought my parents camping for my dad's birthday. It had been a long time since he camped, and we had such a great, memorable stay. I can't wait to go back in three weeks for my annual Dad's weekend trip with 8 other dads and 17 kids! Making memories!

The bathroom sink countertop could use some cleaning at more intervals. Wi-fi connection was terrible and barely useable. Otherwise, the campsite is well maintained and Sylvia is the most pleasant person you could interact with.

Thomas and Sylvia were incredibly friendly and available for anything they could help us with.

The site (#94) was not very level. The sewer drain was unusable because the location was higher than the outlet on my RV

iron taste in water. internet access poor - you've got to control users clogging up the system watching netflix. otherwise good park.
May 30, 2013
Great customer service, nice facilities but the sites were very very small and set up poorly with the neighbors sewer and water lines in your space. $6 a bundle for 7 small pieces of wood is outrageous when they force you to purchase on site!

We stayed at this Campground about 15 years ago. Glad we went back to a pop-up and choose this campground again. It is a very nice place. Close enough yet far enough for us. It is nice to have it next to a nice attraction the WW Town. BUT even nicer with all the activities. The staff and Manager were a PLEASURE to deal with! Keep up the great work!

It was really cold and then rainy but there was so much going on that my sister and I had a geat time no matter the weather.

This was our second stay at the camp ground (first time under the new owners)and had a much better experience. I'm pretty sure we had the best campsite on the grounds (#25). The memorial day activities that we were able to participate in were well run and entertaining. Did not like the young staff peddling wood from the golf cart all day. If I want wood I'll walk to the office.

Fantastic weekend

Nice people, nice park, nasty weather. Cable would be a nice addition.

Nice, hot showers! :) Minimal activities for kids. Walking distance from Wild West Town.
May 28, 2013
We were accommodated by having our request honored and all families were put on adjoining lots. Made our meals together much easier. Thank you. Thought the lots were small, however, and not too much privacy. Not a problem when camping with friends, but could be if camping alone. Bathrooms were clean. Water would not shut off in a couple of showers.
May 28, 2013
Our stay was great! Everyone was very friendly! Only problem was our outlets were not working for us to plug our extension cord in.
May 28, 2013
Helpaful staff, showed me to my site and offered to help me set up.
May 28, 2013
+Even tho the weather was less than co-operative for the Memorial Day weekend, there were still plenty of activities for the kids. Wimming will have to wait until our next stay.
May 28, 2013
The hosts are terrific. The hosts went out of their way to get my value card rewards even though I fogot my card. Nice quiet campground, handy for old west town. Store needs more variety, big boxes of cereal, no microwave popcorn is unusual. Crafts for kids needs to be mid morning to late afternoon, not at lunchtime. Just not a lot to do in the immediate area. Everything good about a KOA is there
