We've visited family at this campground a few times over the years. And it's never been a pleasant experience. The owner is so rude. She's OBSESSED about the 5 mph speed limit but speeds around on her golf cart carelessly. She's miserable. It's such an awful experience visiting there and I wish our family would leave. I've never had the... More

This is our 1st season at Shady Oaks and we love the place, it is clean and well taken care off. Each and every weekend the owners are doing something to involve the campers and they have Bar B Qs every so often for the campers . It is a good place to sit back and relax . The Owners... More

My wife and I stayed there for one night only. We were greeted by the manager and lets just say she was methodical in her routine at check in. I guess this is how she runs the place. From what I could notice this campground is operated by an older couple that as seen it all with campers and maybe... More

We become camper at Shady Oaks last year at the end of the season. The owner were very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home.

Booked ahead for two nights from July 21 to 23 at this campground. When we arrived we were horrified. The place is a dump and staffed by two of the most miserable people we have ever had the unfortunate chance of meeting. Grass was at least a foot high, branches in piles all over the place. The "recreation hall" is... More

I camped at Shady Oaks on August 11 & 12th and I will never go back. The owners are rude and lack any warmth of any kind.

I apologize for not having the work camper turn the water on at your location within the park. He had fixed a leak and had forgotten to turn that water zone back on. In the year 2012 we had rain for 6 weeks straight and the ground was too soft to have the work camper remove the pile of damaged... More

The web-site is very misleading, those pictures must have been taken some time ago. The place is run down and the grounds are not well kept.
