Had no respect for the customers, called us names and blatantly lied to our faces about general operations. Would not recommend ! 0/10

A definite big party going on the river and on the shore also at this resort with tons of people everywhere.. from tubers, rafters, canoers, you name it water crafts everywhere. If partying is your thing this is the place to be seen

Very fun place with a convenience store built in and little cabins for rent if you need them. When the campground is busy, it's super loud even on the "quiet" side. Overall a very friendly staff and a good place. I'd go back.

No fire pit, has a grill out side, You must provide you own linens, towels, and utensils. I believe the bed size is full and there is a bunk bed.
