Family owned, perhaps. Family orientated? Not so much.
Keep driving. There has to be something better nearby.
Safety and cleanliness are our main priorities, we didn't find either here.
We took our kids to the playground. The kids were playing tag on lawn when out of nowhere a white chev truck came flying out from between the trees, down the slope through the park, past the playground towards the beach. I would estimate the speed at between 40-45km. It was a female staff member unloading a picnic table from the back of her truck. She got out, unloaded the truck and slammed it in reverse, back up the slope. This time she slowed down to perhaps 30km. Evidently the 10km/hr speed limit within the campground applied to patrons only.
The beach was disgusting. Dog feces, goose feces and bugs. The sand below the water mucky and like the others had said, like quick sand.
The washrooms and showers were filthy. Complete with dirt, debris (razors, lids, wrappers, etc) and had a foul odor. We don't feel it's snobbery to expect a clean shower/washroom facility.
The conveniences are: a store filled with just about everything one could need, including liquor and beer. There's laundry, an arcade, fuel, propane and packages of about 8 log of firewood for $8.00. Sani-dump station located at the top of a hill so that when there's a spill it only runs into 1-2 campsites. A go-cart track made on grass and tires and a tired, sad mini-golf.
There is so much potential for this campground to be a beautiful, safe place to visit. Perhaps a little added common sense and a cleaning or maintenance schedule would make a world of difference.
I wish I would have read the reviews prior to coming here but got drawn in by the notion of a lake, mini golf, etc.
Positives: Convenience, endless list of amenities.
Negatives: Staff drive like idiots making the safety of the kids playing outside questionable, dirty washroom, dirty beach, expensive firewood.
My husband has affectionately coined this campground as "stink lake".
