This place just reopened under new management. All the trees have been cut down. Private sites are no longer private. The owners promote drinking and the smell of liquor is prevalent. I guess because this is a dry county. Beer cans and bottles were abundant everywhere! We looked at the cabins for future use. No real improvements were made to the cabins except expensive granite counter tops were added to plywood cabinets, but the bed bug ridden mattresses that are at least 10 yrs old are still there. They did buy some log furniture. Everything there smells of mold and mildew. Daylight can be seen through the walls. The park is in need of a cleanup....badly. the campsites are horrid. We paid a $3 fee or "mandatory donation" each and time we left the park and drove back in to the site we had rented there for several weeks. We paid a 3.25% fee for using our debit card to pay. They were charging $8 for each fish caught in addition to the license and fishing fee, so we declined. Golf cart rentals were $70 per day. Boats were also unreasonably priced. The camp store was ill equipped and extremely overpriced. The elderly store clerk was extremely rude and ill mannered. Several drunken parties kept us up for three nights. The park would not give a refund if we left so we were stuck. All in all, not a good way to spend our vacation dollars. Would not go back. We camped at Little Black Creek Water Park in a Motorhome.

Nice well maintained state park. Bathhouse facilities have seen better days. Some recently rebuilt and other are just atrocious. Paved roads and concrete pads. We have stayed here many times, but the newest staff just is not as friendly as the old. Getting anything done in the office is very difficult. But when we needed help on our site they were Johnny on the spot. The lake is stocked each year and fishing off the piers is good. We will return to this park for sure. We camped at Paul B. Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

What's right: The sites are bigger than most private parks and are grassy. The grounds are professionally cared for. The roads are gravel. Some sites have concrete pads, others are dirt. Many have shaded yards for at least part of the day. The only amenity is a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers. It is very clean. It is close to a state park where fishing and camping is allowed. It allows pets on leash and they are sticklers for this. Some tenants have sheds. Whats wrong: There were many old ratty RVs and trailers, and their sites looked as if they had been there quite a while gathering junk and trash. Several looked like hoarders. There was one really nice RV but next door was a dump with a three foot tall pile of trash. Tarps hung on roofs and fences from front to back. We spoke to a camper before we moved in who told us it was mostly military and disabled. But while I was there I had a lady who cooked drugs at night in her RV next to mine. An ex-HS teacher and his student girlfriend and their child. Asked to watch another elderly man's 23 year-old wife and report her activity to the office. And a couple on disability that looked like they were opening a junk store next to my RV. Prior to this there was the man who was allowed to rebuild a car in his lot including the priming and painting! Right next to another RV and across the street from one that looked expensive! All with the knowledge and/or consent of the park owners. Hence the cheap monthly rent of $295. I needed a place longer than I stayed but just could not keep feeling unsafe and like I was living in the twilight zone. We camped at Eagle Nest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park. Really nice owners who make you feel at home. Peaceful and quiet with great fishing in the reservoir. Large grassy lots not right on top of one another. Great place to stay long term or to have as home camp. We camped at Mama D's RV Campground in a Motorhome.
