Great little campground with plenty of things to do and hear

I camped at this park as a child and will always remember hearing the animals from the zoo in the middle of the night.  The lions roaring and the monkeys howling isn't something that many campgrounds can offer.  There is plenty to do at the park including fishing, boating, bmx and mountain biking, frisbee golf, a splash park, great playgrounds, and of course you must walk through the zoo.  There are currently 44 RV sites, 18 tent sites, and several camper/cabins.

Nice but be cautious!

While this great little park should deserve 4.5-5 stars, we had an unfortunate experience while we were there.  My family of 5 were on the lake-side of our little 22ft TT while someone less fortunate than us decided to steal my 9yr old daughter's new bike.  The bike was parked at the rear of the camper and the thief was very 'brazen' to attempt the theft in the daylight and in a populated and gated campground.  After discussing the issue with the campground staff, we were informed that locals often come through the woods and even wade through the edge of the lake to steal from the campground.  Other than that incident, the campground is very nice with very private sites, lake access and a public boat ramp located on the other side of the main road.  We probably will not return to this campground.

Nice quiet campground along a nice quiet stream

We parked our 22ft travel trailer at site 30 which was bounded to the north and east by the tent camping area.  There was heavy storms for several days before our arrival which is why there are no tent campers in our photo.  We had the whole tent area to play games in.  While the RV sites aren't very private, there is plenty of space to escape your neighbor.  The nice gurgling stream (Big Cedar Creek) bounds the campground to the east and is a nice walk through a mowed/maintained field.  The edge of the stream was nicely shaded with multiple picnic tables for everyone's use.  Due to the bad weather, we missed out on the haunted woods that the campground staff setup, but it did look like they put a lot of effort into the Halloween festivities.  Unfortunately, we also missed out on the little RV/Camping Store which looked to be really well stocked.  

We will definitely return if/when we're in that area again.
