General Campground Information


We understand how important it is to have a successful family vacation or a quiet night after a long day on the road. It is our goal to provide you with quality accommodations that are comfortable & relaxing, yet can be a fun and enjoyable camping experience.


RV and tent camping check-in is 1:30 PM, cabins 2:30 PM; check-out is Noon. Because many people take advantage of our later check-out time, we ask early arrivals be kept as close to the 1:30 PM time as possible. Any arrival before noon will be charged an extra fee.

What's a pocket park? It's the grassy area near the splashpad & Jump Pad that houses a gazebo as well as 2 sets of concrete cornhole "boards", a concrete ladderball game, a gaga pit, an oversized "Connect4" game as well as plenty of room to play bocce ball. This area is to be enjoyed by our campers. We will be moving more amenities to this area in 2020.
