his campground has enjoyed good reviews from the very beginning. There are good reviews within all of the rating companies. Many of our new customers come because they saw our good ratings. Our most recent Good Sam rating is 7.5,9.5*, 9. The star on the middle rating means there are no deductions because of lack of cleanliness. These ratings are on a scale of 10. The first rating is for amenities, the second is the bathrooms, and third is overall appeal. In the category for amenities we lose a full point since there is no swimming pool, ½ point because of gravel roads. ½ point for no security gate, and ½ point because we are not 100% full hookup. In the bathroom category we lose ½ point because our bathrooms do not have tile or fiberglass wallboard throughout it is only in the shower areas. The last category we lose our point with our entrance which is fine but not outstanding.
Rec Building There are many amenities at the campground. First a small camp store with convenience groceries, snacks, rv parts and gifts. The store also sells propane by weight and gallon during the camping season. This could be done year round for someone who stays in the area. Kids enjoy our playground with the always fun swings, a climbing wall, stand up see-saw and spinning seats. The last three items are somewhat unique and we hear laughter from the playground regularly. All ages enjoy cooling off in our spray pad. There are 5 different spray features offering great water play and refreshment. We have never had an electronic game room, but beside the office we have interactive games such as turtle checkers, connect 4, frog and turtle tic tac toe, and turtle jumping pegs.
The campground is served by a well that is 186’ down providing good tasting water. It is filtered with aggregate filters before going out to the sites. Waste water treatment is handled by three septic systems. One system handles the main building, another the dump station and owner’s site, the third handles all the sites with a sewer hookup. The water on the south side of the campground can be turned off at a curb valve. This leaves 25 sites and the main building with water service. The water at the dump station also has a curb shut off as does the owner’s site.
The campground was constructed in 1970 and opened for business in June of 1971. It was built within the KOA system. The campground went out of the KOA system in 1981 and has not returned. The design of the park was very well done. All of the sites are individually connected to main circuit boxes. The power company has four transformers serving us electricity. Current ownership began in 1994. This is a business operating well. New operators will enjoy stepping in and right up to the plate. These new folks will have a chance to earn the following of a very good customers base who comes back regularly.
