Date of Stay: February, 2005 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Pulling into this campground we were greeted by a large sign at the entrance that says, "This is a modem friendly campground." I'll get back to that. Upon check-in, the office staff was friendly and a young gent on a golf cart escorted us to our assigned site, #60. When we got there we weren't aware this was a site. It looked like the yard of the neighboring camper. Our escort aided us in going back and forth 10 times until we were in. A phone pole guide-wire restricted our entry so the front of our 30' MH was 3' from the pavement. If I were to have pulled the awning down it would have been on the neighbor's slide out. I tried to plug in my electric, but a pole blocked the door to my electric hatch from opening. No room to park our tow car either. Our escort told us the management had mistakenly allowed our neighbor to extend his slide out in an area of the park that restricted them. Complaining to the office staff about our dilemma we found no sympathy, just that it was the last site available in the park. The manager was requested and I plead my case that we didn't drive in off the road, we had made a reservation 8 months prior and we were given a tent site. He blew up at us and told the staff to give us our money back and we could stay somewhere else. His wife came out of the office and offered us an overflow site on the parking lot w/o sewer or cable. Being prime time, the other parks in the area were full so that's where we stayed. Later that day there was a pop-up on site 60. Back to that sign. Because of our location, we couldn't find out if the park was modem friendly. But we DID find out why the sign didn't say, "Management friendly." We won't be back. We camped at Shady Acres RV & Camping Park in a Motorhome.
