I'll start with the good stuff first and say that the cabins are reasonably nice and comfortable with full size appliances in the kitchen, fireplace with living area seating, as well as a private bath; but the bed is in the open living/kitchen area. There is an economy rustic-style log cabin at the rear of the campground near one of the horse stables/coral, which is very secluded. It is very small and cozy with one room as the living/sleeping area, a mini kitchenette, and a tight bathroom with a shower stall. It has a nice deck/porch in front leading to the front and only door. It does not have a fireplace, table, or bed - well, virtually no furniture at all. When I was there some years ago, they had horses available for a tour guided nature ride; but I do not recommend it as you will next find out why.
At nightfall, someone in hunting camouflage carrying a rifle climbed over the railing of the cabin deck onto the porch and unscrewed the porch light bulb. I heard him as he was climbing onto the deck and looked out the window. It startled me, so I called for my friend to come out of the bathroom. The man's face was right up to the window when I drew the curtain back to look again and he had disengaged the porch light which had been on just moments before. After a few minutes of brainstorming ways we could defend ourselves, he disappeared around the back of the cabin where we couldn't see him. Fortunately and surprisingly, we managed to slip out of the cabin door, run to our car, and drive back to the office without an incident. When we got to the office, it was closed, so we went up the stairs to an apartment above the office where the grounds keeper obviously lived. He came to the door drunk. When we told him our story, he acted indifferent and unconcerned. He said he would look into it, but he wasn't very convincing at the time. We decided to drive into town and check into a hotel for the night. When we got back the next morning, they did actually have a private investigator waiting to interview us and take us in his SUV with dark tinted windows to drive down a nearby gravel road to see if we could identify someone fitting the "hunter's" description. Come to find out, they had tracked a scent and footprints from the rear of our cabin with blood hounds. We were not able to identify anyone.
They moved us to a full-size cabin at the front of the campground, as some of the guests had completed their stay and left. The following day, my friend spotted someone who totally fit the description and we both identified him and reported him to the office. He was actually employed there. He worked the stables and guided the horseback tours. The manager again was despondent and indifferent, neglecting to offer us the chance to report it to the so-called private investigator. They did NOTHING! They didn't even so much as offer a refund on the first night nor did they offer to reimburse us for our hotel stay!
About a year later, my younger sister, brother and some of their friends went horseback riding there. They came home telling of how the horseback tour guide had put one of the girls on his horse with him, slowly dropped behind the others, veered off the path, and began to touch her inappropriately. My brother and his friend were even farther behind, to his unawareness, and observed what was happening. They followed him and stopped the incident from going any further. That was the same man who had, a year prior to that, threatened to break in on us! They still had him on the payroll. Who knows whether he is still there or not, but I wouldn't ever want to go back there again knowing how irresponsible the management is. The park does not have enough amenities to even tempt me. If you are traveling through the area, there are other places to stay, including hotels that would offer better accommodations for one night. Don't waste your time or money there.
This place is awful, there is nothing around it, it's run down and the people are not nice!!! You pay a good bit of money for nothing!!! I would not recommend this place to anyone. When you call, they will talk it up and act like its the best place ever.. I would not let a child run around either. They have 4-wheeler rides and the people ride all over the park and don't watch for children!!! It's not a safe place for anyone to go to!!!! There are plenty of other rv parks and campground around besides that place!!!
