Wonderful owners

The new owners have revamped this campground. From what I’ve heard, this wasn’t the place to go prior to the ownership change. The owners here care about everyone at the campground, and keep it nice and clean. They also expect their full time campers to keep their lots and campers in good condition. Both owners are very approachable and respectful. Campground is just a short hike to the Ararat River. Which is why the new name is Ararat River Campground. No tent camping, but 30 amp and 50 amp camper hookups are available with sewage. In the warm months the owner holds church services in the pavilion behind lot 12. Owners offer a flat monthly rate that includes water, electric, wifi, and campground maintenance.

Never again.

This is more of a mobile home park than an actual campground. Many campers are full time residents, a couple of which eerily reminded us of the movie Deliverance. One of the families there doesn't appear to watch their children well, as we had their toddler in a very full diaper and their son (approx 10 yo) constantly at our campsite asking for food. The boy likes to throw rocks, a couple of which scratched our car. : (

The shower/restroom area was frightening. Very dark and dirty. Doesn't look like it's ever been cleaned. 

Owner was not very friendly and seemed to be put out by having to rent us a space. We'll never go there again and can't recommend this place to anyone.
