In order for patrons to gain a full, honest understanding of this campground, please read all reviews that are 3 stars or less. They may sound belligerent and exaggerated, but I assure you that the reviews of 3 stars or less are brutally accurate. The cons outweigh the pros immensely. Please read this review further because my story tops all. The facts are as follows:Pete (owner) switched over our water lines to their winterized lines without our knowledge or permission. 5.5 hours later, the trailer flooded, and was later deemed a total loss by insurance. Note that this trailer was a 6 week old Denali 287RE Travel Trailer (very nice). The reason the trailer flooded (noted by a non-biased third party/RV Shop) was because the campground turned the water supply on that served the sani-flush in the black tank. [They should not (EVER) touch someone else’s property, let alone do so without knowledge of what they are tampering with.] The black tank filled up in a maximum time of 45 minutes and pressurized the tank to the point of breaking the seal of the toilet p-valve (flusher). Thus, allowing black water to back flow through the toilet bowl for 5.5 hours, destroying everything touching the floor. They denied it and changed their story 3 (three) times. [First-they did not touch anything. Second-they only switched the lines and turned one line on (not the sani-flush line). Three-they switched over both lines and turned on both water supplies, but the trailer was leaking before they did so.] I took them to court to gain back expenses caused by their carelessness. Turns out lying under oath is no problem for them (and the Judge is corrupt. The Judge stated after 4 minutes of court commencement, that I “would not like his ruling, but to continue”. I hadn’t even begun my explanation before the court had its mind made up.)Please note that Pete and Judy (owners) have zero: accountability; Integrity; and respect; and have minimal: Intelligence; fair pricing; and tenants. You WILL be on their time; at their convenience; and nothing more. You WILL be yelled at. You WILL be scolded. You WILL be called names and cursed at. You WILL not feel welcome. You WILL pay extra for everything. You WILL have confusion and disorganization by the campground. You WILL have your personal belongings at risk for tampering by the campground. You WILL have bugs flying up from their holding tank into your black and gray tanks (and making it in to your trailer from each of the drains). You WILL NOT have TV channels through your antennae. You WILL NOT have a strong WIFI connection. You WILL have consequences if there are leaves left on your site (No joke. Judy said in court that I left my site ‘trashed’ with litter, wood, and leaves. Luckily I had pictures of the electrical meter, and the CLEAN site after I moved off the premises, minus the leaves being cleaned up.). You WILL NOT be having intelligent conversations with Pete or Judy (owners). You WILL NOT have very many trailers around you, as word of mouth travels and people have grown to understand how terrible this place can be, and no longer stay there. You WILL be told one thing, and then find that information to not be true (they do not say what they mean, and mean what they say). You WILL be left out in the rain (literally) alone to choose/find your campsite, because it is not convenient for Judy to show you around when it is raining (you are on your own!). You WILL have muddy grounds to walk on every inch of grass if it rains for over 2 minutes. This information is purely factual from my personal experience, and is set in place to educate fellow campers out there.
