Only negative is the campground is next to a closed landfill - not the prettiest scene. The amusement park was a lot of fun.

No full hookups. Must use a dump station. The sites are nice and level but have no trees.

As we followed the GPS directions, we felt we were being taken to the wrong location; a vacant parking lot. However, off to the side, you see the campground sign and a road leading into the campground. Once inside the campground, it is like another world from where you just were. We barely made it before the store closed at 5pm to check-in. We were able to pick where we wanted to camp. The campsites are open and spacious. There are no trees, other than small trees/bushes planted in the median between the campsites. The campsite is very well maintained and peaceful. The bath house is very spacious and exceptionally clean. The shower stalls are large and they even have handicap showers. The store has a variety of items for campers to purchase and the staff is very friendly!

Great location if you like quick access to the water park; campsite is a big parking lot with little appeal.

All facilities are new and excellent well-maintained condition. The campground offers all kinds of camping - RV/camper pull-through sites, tee-pees, small cabins, mini cabins, regular cabins. The only thing that isn't stellar is the RV/camper sites. There is not trees to provide shade and the roadway is pea gravel. We were still able to bike ride with our grandchildren. The like-new facilities more than compensates for the parking lot style RV sites. The campground is next door to an amusement park which is a bonus.
