Employees were warm and friendly, great stop on our trip. Helped us park and get in our site. Big shady sites. Very clean and easy to maneuver a big rig towing a vehicle. Definitely plan on stopping there again

We stayed here several days during the 4th of July week. The park was clean as a pin, freshly mowed with level sites and really quiet. The park is convenient to town where there are several nice places to eat, Wal-Mart and a Civil War Museum. The staff was frendly and helpful. But most of all being a disable veteran...

This was a great stop while traveling from Michigan to Texas for a convention. Staff was very friendly and escorted us to our site. Nice large clean pull-through that was very level and we certainly appreciated the cleanliness of everything.

Had a great time at Red Barn RV Park. I was the Elks 409 Elk herd. Friendly, helpful and made sure I was fine or needed anything. Best of all the welcoming cookies were so good. Looking forward to our trip back next spring.

Overall a good campground with mature trees and reasonably sized lots. Sites easily accessible and park reasonably clean and quiet. Not a lot of amenities, e.g. no playground for kids. Only complaint was that the lady at front desk and patrolling grounds was quite rude to use on several occasions and was generally unfriendly. We are accustomed to very welcoming...

I did some investigation to your claim. I am sorry you thought the RV dealer was paying for all your RV's to stay for free at our park. Please understand that the RV Dealer only paid for one RV to stay with us for free as only one RV was purchased. If you took it as being rude we are...

Superb service, accommodations, and beautiful surroundings. Very friendly hosts, large level pads, sparkling clean restrooms with plenty of hot water. Just wear your shower shoes, as the grid floors aren't barefoot friendly! So very dog friendly with access to a huge field owned by the church next door. I look forward to coming back in the spring for a business...

Overall a good campground. Plenty of room and nice and quiet. Easy access to sites. The staff person really needs more training on how to run computer system.

Thank you for your review it helps us serve you better. The staff person you spoke of was a work camper and most of them take a while to get comfortable on the computer program.

I made our reservation online and immediately had a confirmation, along with a welcome. On the way we had many side stops to make and realized we were going to be arriving much later than we had planned. I emailed them to let them know of our late arrival and they responded with a thank you and instructions for us....
