Although everything one would want in amenities are available here, it does make it a bit expensive for the traveling RVer.

On the “up” side the entire staff is very helpful and cheerful in their interactions with all guests. There is a very good escort service to all sites and almost all parking is very easy because of the large sites. There is ample parking at each site for your vehicle and a visitor. There is a restaurant on the lake that serves a great breakfast meal and at very reasonable prices. The sites are well designed with a good view at just about all of them. There is a 24 hour security system staffed with volunteers which is very nice to have in a large park like this. Cannot comment about the WiFi as we never use it any more. Our Verizon 720 USB air card serves us well everywhere we go. The cable TV has about 70 channels and all are very clear so no need to hook up the Dish. The 50 amp power is a real 50 amps. No CB popping here. No license required for fishing and it's free. Minnow size Bass is all I ever caught. There is a Super Wal-Mart less than a mile away and a very new shopping mall out near the airport which is about five miles away. There is a large flea market out near the airport also.

On the “down” side the roads in the new section are very potted and the gravel used throughout that section gets into your tires and you have lots of pinging going on when you leave and get up to speed. The new section is very close to I295 and with no sound barrier the road noise is very high at times. Again, the price is very high. With discounts we paid $252.00 for a week. Of course if you have a washer and dryer and a couple of electrical space heaters like we have you can save a little with them. Yep, it was cold at night. One day we ran the AC and then had our heaters on by 10 pm.
