We normally camp at state and national parks. This was our first time at a private campsite. Fees were $53 per nite per campsite, so more than twice what I'm used to paying.
Camp was crowded, but staff came by at 11 pm to quiet things down and that was much appreciated.
Our campsite was nothing but dirt, but we are used to that. Staff watered down dirt road twice in the afternoon.
Teen kids really enjoyed pool, fields, and ice cream social. Live band by pool from 7pm to 10pm on Saturday and dj on Sunday same time -- probably due to holiday weekend. Kids liked band.
Petting zoo was for viewing from afar, so no petting which is fine for me. Wine tasting on sat at 4, but I had my own wine tasting at my campsite. Lots of horses on property, but we didn't ride them.
Free hot showers and flush toilets. This place fits a lot of rv's, trailers, and tent campers. Cool looking wagons and old west cabins.
With such a large facility, I can see how things can get out of hand. Too many party goers can ruin it with loud music and drunkenness.
Overall, we had a good time and would go back on non holiday weekend.
