Not bad overall, given the fear instilled by the previous reviews. It is true that there is a landfill nearby, but we stayed in mid-October and it was cold enough that there was no odor emanating from it, nor was there noisy heavy traffic as previously reported. The staff was kind, helpful & courteous, and the site was level and it even had a little brick wall & park bench! We have a 24' travel trailer.

We stayed two nights here in a tent, and it was my first time staying here in about 15 years, since I was a child. First, the bad points: 1. This "resort" is immediately beside a landfill of some kind, and all you can smell is trash the entire time. During the day you hear the beeping of the trucks backing up right beside you. 2. All of the tent sites are out in the open and have hardly any shade or privacy. The only thing separating our site from the next was our truck blocking the view. 3-The miniature golf course is lame and needs a lot of work. There are weeds growing on every hole, it is uneven, and some of the obstacles do not even work. It would not be worth doing it even if it were free, let along paying for it. 4--The paddle boats that were advertised are on a catch & release lake that is just water drain off from the landfill that is above you. I wouldn't dare touch the water that is in it, let alone try to fish out of it.
Now to the good points- 1-- The swimming pool was nice and clean, and was at least maintained 2--The showers are clean and usable, but there were only 6 of them that I saw 3--The ATV trail seemed nice from afar, but we did not get to try it during our stay.
Overall, this seems like a camp that was a nice place back in the day, but it has definatly seen better days. Most of the facilities need maintaince and is just not receiving it. If I had a choice to go there or somewhere else...I would look elsewhere
