$30 bucks to camp for the night with a tent. I expected crowds. Instead we were able to pick a site right on the creek. We had a tent, fishing spot, and campfire all within a 20 foot square. There was no light pollution, so once the sun went down, the stars were awesome. The two staff members I dealt...

Loved everything about this campground. Great location, lots of kid friendly activities, beautiful creek running through, camp store had everything you need with reasonable pricing. Saturday night has family friendly music and dancing, and they even have a church service on Sunday morning. Definitely will be back.

We went camping here July 29-31. We had 6 kids with us for this trip. Now for me, camping site were way to close together. This is def a campground that gets packed out and you are very close to your neighbors, that being said, the kids had a ball the entire time. They have a swim hole with a...

We had a great time at this campground. There is so much outdoor fun to be had here. My 9 and 6 year old boys loved the long water slide going down the side of a steep hill (this costs extra:$5 for 30min or $10 for all day). Our campsite, C38 ($45/night) was on what is called "the island" and...

We used to go tot this campground a few times a month. The stream running through is great. Put your chair in it and relax. The watering hole for swimming was always freezing but people loved it. Good snacks at the snack bar. You can rent a tube and then of course the water slide (additional cost) It is a...

If you post rules for a "Family" campground, enforce them. Teens throwing rocks ftom one side t9 5ge other towards people. Pre-teen yling fbombs, 3 adults jumping simultaneously on an 8 yr old girl without apologizing. Same group the park had ask to rurn done their rap. Yet, management did nothing for the patrons that were respectful, and be violated....

$35 to tent camp for families of 4. $5 each additional person. When its slow you can camp pretty much wherever a tent spot is. Sad thing is there are less and less tent spaces every year. $5 for 30 min on waterslide. $10 for the day. Never done it. $5 for a tube for the day. But I always...

Most of the sites are decent at best. The better sites are occupied by permanent travel trailers that are in terrible shape. Wouldn't let a dog I hated stay there. Place has potential but the rude staff overshadows what could be a good campground.

Absolutely love SCP & love the freezing water on a hot summer day. We've been camping here for over a decade & look forward to many more years to come. Our kids have enjoyed swimming, riding bikes & making new friends each year. We love the dance on Friday and Saturday nights with Mel the DJ. Then we enjoy some...

A wonderful place to camp and enjoy nature. You can swim, wade in the creek, fish, play mini golf or just relax by a campfire. We enjoyed the peace and serenity of nature while staying here. Other attractions are near by if you want to venture out from the campground.
