We made our reservation on May 21, 2019 for a 9-day stay beginning June 24, 2019. There was no selected site shown on our reservation confirmation email. Before we left home, we called to ask our site number and we were told that our site was 4J. Upon our arrival, we discovered that site 4J was barely long enough for our 38 foot motorhome. And, it was so narrow, we had no room to put our lawn chairs out. We ask the staff to move us to a better site and were told we could move but we would have to move 2 more times during our 9-day stay. The campground manager came out to our site and agreed to give us a 50% discount on our stay if we did not move. We will not return to this campground again. Oh, by the way, ants were everywhere!!
Lovely campground, but some tight back in, hilly sites. We paid $14. a night (access pass) for FHU back-in site 4A. Larger rigs seem to be in area 2, but they are still back in sites. Great lake views, nice and quiet. Was able to get direct tv but there are also about 10 OTA. Laundry (2W/2D, 50 cents each) still overflows, they even ask you to space out starting times for wash. Very family friendly, lots of playgrounds. Cabins, motel, tenting, rv, rental rv's - it's all here. This campground has everything you need for some down time, location a bit off of hwy 20 but sometimes that is the idea.
Our only comment is the registration site ought to have been more clearly marked by signage. It took us awhile to locate the office to sign in and be directed to our previously reserved camp site-! Perhaps like Ft. Benning where they have indications on the entrance sign to the campground?
We called and spoke with Ruth and she said they were full with the exception of a few sites with only electricity. She said that they do not take reservations that it was first come first served at all times. We were willing to go for that, after all it was a holiday weekend starting. When we arrived, we were greeted by Ruth and Larry and they were very helpful. They both told us they would check and see if there was a possibility of a site with full hook-ups available. We waited a few minutes and Ruth came out with the "good news". She said they had checked and there was one empty site with full h/u. We were happy. We paid for 5 nights, she fixed us up with a little plastic bag to hang on the pole at our assigned sight. We drove to it and found there was one already hanging on the pole. We just got out to unhook the car so that we could back the MoHo in when Larry drove up and told us that he had made a mistake and that someone was already checked into the sight, their "reservation" had already began. Slip of the tongue I'm sure. So we drove back to the office to get changed to a partial hook-up site. Ruth said she was so sorry. I told her that I understand how difficult it is to keep up with so many reservations. Both she and Larry came back with "we don't accept reservations". I said maybe that was the wrong word. If you pay in advance and hang your little plastic bag with the paperwork inside on the pole the site is yours, but it's not a reservation.
There were 5 sites not reserved when we arrived. Then Larry told us that he didn't think the site would be big enough for our rig. Sure enough it wasn't. They refunded our money and said "sorry". Larry called and checked on Leitner Lake on Post to see if they had any sites and they said yes and that they would hold one for us. For that review you'll have to look at the Leitner Lake site. Oh boy.
Resocal left this review using the Directory software: Have always stayed here enroute to somewhere. However, in area 2 some sites have poor electric service (ours did); sites farthest from transformers are the worst. We had 50A except one side had 23 volts, other side varied from 11-19 volts.
The Lake is quite low right now making the appearance of the grounds ugly. It is still possible to launch a boat into the Lake. During the summer this must be a great place to come. There are a lot of things to enjoy here. We would come again. The only spaces that really accomodate 40 foot RV's are in camp area #2.
