The owner is DOWNRIGHT RUDE and MEAN.. Most unpleasant RV experience that I have ever had. It make me appreciate other RV parks much more. Not worth staying here because the owner will make it very unpleasant for you. She doesn;t allow visitors and considers her property private property.. if it's private then why have you, strangers stay there?

The weather was really dry which made the ground really dusty especially in the tenting areas. Maybe some grass in that area would help. We did have a shady site that helped keep us cool. We were able to hook up to electricity and use our fans in the tent. I slept with twigs and rocks in my back though....

The woman is the MOST UNPLEASANT and RUDE person that I have ever encountered in my 5 plus years of full timing. She made our stay VERY UNPLEASANT. The campground has no grass. The mini golf is in shambles. Family and friends are NOT allowed unless approved and paid for. Can't hook up electricity until check in time. I will...

The owners will only allow visitors to your RV if they approve of them and then want to charge $5.50 per person it there more than 1 hour. We tried to have our friends come tour our RV and the owner came to our RV and said they all had to leave, they were determined to be a motorcycle gang....

We stayed in the Hollywood-themed "Sophie" camper and it was the highlight of our Labor Day travels. The camper was immaculate and the camp hosts couldn't have been sweeter. My only regret is that we spent just one night here. We'll definitely be back!

This place was crazy cool!! We (8 of us - 2 families) were travelling around Colorado in a rented RV. Sylvia was so awesome and so nice. She delivers fire wood on a Segway with dirt tires! She took pictures for us. The pool was really nice and warm. The gift shop is super cool and totally retro. The bathrooms...

My husband and I stayed two nights in "Lucy"and absolutly loved it. In fact, I came home and started looking for a vintage camper to purchase! The owners were very welcoming and hospitable. Our camper and the common bathrooms were incredibly clean. The retro feel of the place is very charming and inviting. I love all things retro but I...
