These comments are just the experience of the two RV Gypsies and do not make the campground good or bad in general.

Like most Thousand Trails, this was a big campground. But also like most Thousand Trails, there were only a few 50 amp full-service hook-ups. At this and most other Thousand Trails, the two RV Gypsies had to drive around and pick their own site. They were lucky enough to find one open 50 amp site, so they immediately paid the extra $3 a night for the 50 amps.

The roads to the site were paved, which is unusual at a Thousand Trails. The site was gravel and had big trees on each side, which scratched the RV as they were parking in their site. The site was long enough for their 40-foot RV and their toad. When Lee drove up to the ranger station to pay the 50 amp charges, he saw about a dozen deer in the park, but Lee seldom has a camera on him.

Of course, like most Thousand Trails, this campground did not have Wi-Fi, but the two RV Gypsies have their own Wi-Fi. No cable TV here, and the antenna did a poor job of bringing in the stations.

There's a lot of stuff at the Activity Center, plus a boat dock, fishing dock, swings, playground, tent camps, cabins, a junior size Olympic pool, kiddies pool, hot tub, laundry, and more. Planned activities are mostly on week-ends. Eventually bracelets will be needed at pool and hot tub, but not on this date. Most standard park rules applied.

Swim at your own risk, when lake is present. The lake was not present on this date.
