Meh. As a campground it seems like it would be awesome, but renting the "cabins" is just okay. Very clean and well kept, excellent facilities for children. Expect your room to be smaller than you think and your showers to be a little painful, but, all in all, i would go back and just rent a different room style. I wasnt blown away, but it was okay. But if you're looking to camp, this js the spot!

Our cabin was older but partly updated. It’s clean but maintenance fell a little short, all the doors creeks very loudly. LOUDLY. When someone goes to the washroom at night, you’d wake up everyone. It’s very loud at night, cars coming and going and people in general. They have many long-term trailer renters and campers around the property, surrounding the cabins. The pool and mini golf was alright.
