Charged for internet, but it didn't work on newer computers. No discount. High price for low service.

I was placed next to an "extended stay family"-2 teenage kids, 2 unleashed dogs,2 vehicles . The father arrived and proceeded to start a fire to burn several empty beer cases in the fire ring using a couple of generous splashes of gas from a 5 gallon can he stored under his trailer. The fire ring was 5 feet from my car and 10 feet from my motor home. Other sites were available -tired of KOA s

We are so impressed with this location. Beautiful landscape with extra large groomed grassy area at our site. Close to some amazing countryside and historical sites. We toured the countryside via motorcycle which enhanced this amazing area. So surprised to all of the rolling green hills.

This was our second stay here. Campground is OK but staff is surly and nothing is ever their fault. Paid $40 a night and wifi did not work... staff said it was because we have Windows 8 but it did not work on Windows 7 either ... told us it wasn't their fault. And don't appreciate being called 'honey' by a surly desk clerk!

We stayed twice, once on the way east, and again a week later on the way back west. The first night, we ended up right next to one of their deluxe cabins - which was full of kids who were very noisy. Not very welcoming after a 12 hour drive, but they did quiet down fairly quickly. Pizza delivery was welcomed as we were in no mood to cook. Thin Crust was pretty good.

It's hard to critique since it rained or drizzlingconstantly. Yet the streets were heavy gravel which drained water well, Restrooms were very nice & private!
