Clean, good size sites, lake view

We stayed here in April 2021, they have 21 RV sites as of this review and there were only 5 or six RV‘s here when we visited. The sites are very new since they just opened for business in 2021. Concrete pad is very large, depending on your rig, you could probably fit 3 or 4 cars at the site, to give you an idea of the size. The firepit is built with pavers and an insert. All sites are full hookup. We had 20, 30, and 50 amp hookups. They supposedly pickup your garbage each morning, although it had not yet been picked up after staying two nights. The grounds are nice, but as of this writing not fully complete. You can rent boats and fish as well. Since the grounds are newly setup, the trees are newly planted, so no shade yet. I imagine this will be a place we’re more likely to stay at during early spring or fall, because of the lack of shade. It can get pretty windy being right on the lake, with no trees. I‘d like to see them add a playground. The RV area seemed safe enough to let kids ride bikes. We got a decent Sprint 5G signal(good enough to stream Netflix) we will stay here again.

Nice Place w/general store & beach of

We stayed here Sept 2020. It’s a nice place with a beach and playground for the kids. Seems pretty large. It was very quiet when we were there due to a somewhat rainy weekend. We still enjoyed ourselves. They have a general store with necessities like milk etc, and extras like movies to borrow, and swag to purchase. They sell propane and wood, which is a plus. We got a good enough LTE signal to stream cartoons for the kids on a rainy day. We’ll be back for sure.

Community feel, a bit cramped

Easy to find large campground. This place has seasonal spots as well. They will have a runner guide you to your spot and assist you in parking. The sites are a bit cramped. When Unhitching if there is anyone waiting to drive by, you feel kind of rushed. Don’t let it make you forget wheel chocks or something important. They have a nice pond. They also have a kids play area in the Hollar, Complete with a giant slide. They will deliver firewood to you, or there is a farm around the corner on the main road toward Casey’s, that also sells firewood. There is no cell/LTE reception out here (Sprint or Verizon). We drove to Casey’s for a pizza and got a small cell signal there. If you like to watch movies, I recommend bringing a DVD player since you likely won’t be able to stream Netflix etc. The country music Opry was held outside because of a virus or something. It was a nice extra treat. There was an ice cream truck on hand during the show, for a $5 or so per item. We were located close to the park and pavilion, and the first morning we woke up to some kind of faint banging outside. I though someone was fixing a building, but it turned out to be acorns falling onto the pavilion roof. It wasn’t terrible but suggest requesting a site away from the pavilion if it might bother you. Overall a good experience, we’ll be back.

Quaint campground close to highway

We stayed here in Sept 2020. Nice staff, quiet enough for being somewhat close to the highway. The trees seemed to block the noise well. They have a pool that was closed because of a virus or something. Sort of small, which made it easy for kids to ride around on bikes, and for us to walk to the playground. We had a good LTE/cell signal. There is a tower very close by. We have sprint. They drop off wood and one of those Lowe’s type metal fire pits if you want one. You can’t put the firepit on the grass, it has to be in the gravel, so that took away some of the coziness. Some of the other sites have permanent fire pits. Some sites have concrete pads, some have a pad for the camper, some just have a small one next to the camper parking. You can’t put a rug on the grass, so that makes relaxing right outside the door of the camper a little less enjoyable, if you don’t have a site with a small pad. The sites do have picnic tables. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and have already reserved another stay
