Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids age 11 and 12) stayed on the East Loop for a few fall nights. We opted for the deluxe sites inside the loop rather than on the lake after reading reviews about the mosquitos.
- The resort grounds are new with level concrete pads.
- Excellent WIFI connectivity pretty much everywhere.
- The staff are seen all day caring for the grounds. Hardly anything out of place.
- Stunning lakeside views.
- It’s still under active construction. Impacted us mainly because it was happening right behind our site with concrete trucks were operating all day.
- Poorly secured electrical boxes with dangerous construction of stairs and decks (no railing in places, etc). This place is asking for a lawsuit.
- Drainage holes on the side of the road with no covers.
- No easy access to get a kayak/canoe in near our camp site on the east loop.
- The mosquitos. It’s camping on a lake in the south but our neighbors staying in the lakeside lots could hardly even be outside. They would swarm you on the docks, too.
The reason we won’t be back: Bill, the manager.
It’s really unfortunate but Bill doesn’t like kids. He would prefer the camp to be 55+. Bill didn’t like kids playing on the “adult lounge swings”.
One afternoon I’m happily enjoying a game of cornhole with my mosquito escaping neighbors. Up walks Bill to inform me that my child and some other camp kids were abusing the playground equipment. What could have been a very civil conversation spiraled into Bill calling several adults names and threatening to kick us out of the camp. All because one of the kids was swinging too high for Bill’s liking.
It’s too bad Bill ruins the place. Heard it from multiple other families staying at the same time. Really nice spot and pleasant staff otherwise.
The site itself looks brand new. Everything is up to date, and there were no issues at all.
Pictures don’t do it justice, there plenty of nature here to enjoy the outdoors!
The site we stayed at was very level.
Staff policies are strictly enforced. Make sure you don’t forget to turn on your key cards at the end of your stay or you will be charged $25 per card.
MOSQUITOS! The first and last night we stayed the mosquitos were so bad we couldn’t be outside. There were two nights in between that it was tolerable. I went out on the dock one night to fish and they were so thick it was impossible to not get bit by them.
Overall this was a very nice stay, and we would stay here again!
I’m hesitant to write this review because this is our new close-to-home GO-TO camping spot and we don’t want it to get booked up. 😆 It is new, quiet, and extremely well-priced. Our lakeside spot was $60 per night. Our other lake resort stays in this area have been at least double that! There is a gated entrance, which I like. The staff here is unbelievably welcoming and friendly. The crew is constantly working on cleaning, landscaping and maintenance. This morning they were raking the beach sand because it rained yesterday. There are plenty of pet waste stations and attractive (seriously)trash bins spaced throughout the park. The sites are concrete, level and roomy with full hookups (great water pressure!), new picnic tables and fire rings. There is not one bad location on the lakeside sites. Our personal faves are 69 thru 81…odds/lakefront. There is a swimming beach (see pic) as well as several relaxing spots, a playground, a bark park and a dog washing station (see pic!). There is a bath house, laundry (with 4 brand-new LG front loading washers), a gym (with a universal, an elliptical and a treadmill) and a small store. See pics! Bathhouse is spotless. It is attached to the marina (but the marina is situated on the far end)and they rent kayaks, paddle boards, and golf carts. There are three docks with kayak and jet ski slips. The view of Percy Priest is incredible and serene. I seriously can not recommend this place highly enough. ***They are going to be adding tiny houses, cabins and aqua houses (think Bali, but closer😉).
