Property Has Potential But Lacks Solid Response When Inquiring

This campground is a bit of a mystery.    If you call ahead you are often quoted one price only to arrive and be told another.   Not sure why this is the case.    I was passing through the area and wanted to check it out, drove in and went to the area which was noted to be the “office” but did not have any luck actually speaking to a person.     There were some people at the camp who were staying there and they said the host would be returning later.   

I spent a few moments driving through the camp and checking out the location noticing they had recently made improvements to the playground and also the bathrooms.    The bath house is a small building but provides all the needs you could require when staying.   There is also fresh water at this site.   

I noticed that the sites I would be most interested in were right by the water, a gentle flowing area of the river which looked serene.    Just down the waterway there was a collection of unsavory looking RVs which looked as though they were long term campers at the site which did not maintain their locations to the same standard I would normally want for my camping neighbors.    

The tent campsites each were equipped with picnic tables and fire rings and were pretty well taken care of as a whole.  They were not much higher than the river itself so this could quickly be an area which would flood in case of torrential rains.

I stayed on property waiting for the hosts for a while and no luck which made it impossible to stay at the site.     There are no significant locations to go and spend time while waiting so after really being discouraged by the lack of ability to communicate I opted to speak to those staying there to solicit information about the location.    I had mixed reviews by campers regarding the amenities and some who were locked into a longer term stay gave less than favorable reviews which I could see to be possible when glancing around camp.

The cons seemed to outweigh the pros on my visit.   I opted to move on. 

I called in following my departure and spoke to a person who then seemed scattered on their responses, this reaffirmed the comments of the campers which I had spoken to.  It was a shame because the property had great potential.
