Campground description & my experience: Came in for a two week stay, close to my son thought it was good it has a electric gate at the front(which won't work in an electical outage). They have goats, a peacock, roosters and hens.
A very long road only paved to the split where the owners live then gravel/dirt and just recently added spotty asphault with potholes. (not a good place to drive in when raining or wet) One dump station, one trash bin, one bath house(always dirty, rarely stocked with the necessities, lots of spider webs, spiders and roaches and other bugs). The full timers there are definetly more friendly than the owners, managers.
Due to some medical issues I have I could not leave so ended up staying longer like almost 2 years left in Sept.,2013 got there Jan., 2011 so my kids and I got to see all the bad things that never changed. They have one washing machine and one dryer that broke quite often. They will put you in one site only to move you again and again if they want you to, put us in 3 different sites. The managers husbnd rides his riding lawn mower around where there is no grass only leaves, gravel, rocks and dirt throwing rocks and damaging rv's and vehicles with no regard and the manager denies it was him, even though he admitted it and said he'd take care of it to me and my kids(17 & 21) and now won't pay for repairs. That's when I left.
Worst place to stay, the manager expects you (the paying customer) to do her job by cleaning the bathroom and laundry room because it is beneath her to do it. So be prepared for no soap, hand towels or toilet paper, roaches, spiders, mold, spider webs, and just a nasty place to have to take a shower or take a piss.
You don't want your kids in there, and watch them when playing in your campsite with all the chicken poop from the free roaming roosters and hens, Salmonella everywhere.
None of the sites are level. They don't keep up the gravel/dirt/half ass asphalt road in there, lots of pot holes, it's really not worth the drive out there you'd be better off at the Walmart parking lot for the night, I know that's where I'm going.
Women watch out for the managers old (70's) husband especially when she's out of town he will be drunk and will come to your campsite at late hours to try to get you to go to his campsite and drink and whatever else is on his dirty mind, not caring he's married. It's pure harassment!!
Owners could careless about the tenants that are paying weekly there, very rude and not friendly at all. What has happened to the southern hospitality, especially when your paying them. They must not be true southerners. Rules change to fit how the manager feels about you personally, not the same for everyone.
Roosters crow at all times during the night so don't expect a quiet rest full sleep. They have the mentality that they are doing you a favor by letting you stay there instead of you doing them a favor by patronizing there business. Avoid this place if at all possible!!!
I had to give a star in order to leave this review but it's actually a minus 5 stars.
I'll add that their yearly Pumpkin Patch is a farce they truck in 500 to 1000 pumpkins and try to fool the public into believing they grow them by placing them sideways toward the dirt and vines they do grow, all a ploy to get those dollars.
They will never make it on Good Sam Club's Campground list!!!
The convience close to my son, pay weekly of $100,00 now changed to only for 4 people adding more $'s for more people(but not told this online on their website) so actually there are no pros.
The road(gravel/dirt/asphault) coming into the campground, unlevel sites, roaming roosters, hens and the owners 2 dogs leaving droppings everywhere, The smell of the male goat is very strong which they keep right by the campsites makes you sick while trying to eat, or anything else. Crowing roosters at all times of the night, dirty bath house, hardly stocked with soap,papaer towels and toilet paper along with spiders, roaches and lots of cobwebs. A very unpleasant atmosphere from the owners to the management, unless your female then the managers husband will be too friendly. No owner interaction when problems arise left all to the yelling manager.
