We are from this town and always went out of town for camping. One day we thought why not give it a try since it is literally 10 minutes away from us. We were allowed to bring our dog, which was great. There were only 4 tent camping spots in the entire campground. We chose the one with the most trees. The other three are not under trees, but in a little "ravine" between two camp roads. Our electric didn't work at our site, so luckily i had a really long extension cord in my car, and we used that (and the other camp sites picnic table) to make our electric skillet waffles when we woke up. We wouldn't have been able to do that if there were people camping next to us. Most of the park, at least as far back as we were, were for campers who seemed to stay there year round. Everyone has a golf cart. They have two little cabins for rent (maybe more, can't recall) and the two we saw had tall pine trees in front of the poarches. The bathroom was what i would call "open air" where the facility itsself was made out of plywood and 2"x4"s. It was very hard to use the restroom without touching any of the spider webs and would not be easy for old people or people with little kids. Maybe the facilities are nicer for the long-term campers. There were no showers in the restroom closest to us. We did have a little "babbling brooke" behind our tent, so that was nice.
