Weekend Family Reunion
0 % of users found this review helpful
My sister and I rented a trailer for the weekend so we could have a cookout with our families and our parents who live at Apple Island during the summer. Cabin was excellent, comfortable and had all amenities needed to enjoy ourselves. We rented golf cart which was great to go back and forth between our parents and our place as well as go to store, pool, golf, etc.. The only negative thing we experienced was that we reserved the golf cart upon arrival and when we went to get it the next morning, it was not charged fully. The plug was impossible to get in for charging so I spent a lot of time trying to get it charged. I called the front desk for assistance and I was placed on hold for a long time. Eventually, I found one of the employees that rides around and he came right over to our place and helped me get the plug in. He was great! Things to do - go to the "point" that overlooks the lake at night when the moon is out - breathtaking! If you want to swim in the lake - go to South Beach - water is beautiful -rocky at first but then pure sand. Great place for picnic!

Let me start by saying that in hindsight we DID have a good time. Hey, when you have lemons you make lemonade. Especially after we planned this trip for so long. There's just some things that people should know. We planned a 6 night stay (8/1/14-8/7/14)in one of the "lakeview" sites, despite the fact that there are no sewer hookups on the "lakeview" sites. "Lakeview" is entirely dependent upon whether or not someone is in front of you. We were lead to our spot (QR001) by a man we later found was Ray, the park manager. When I asked him about the placement of other RVs and how that would impact my view he said "people usually stagger their placement so everyone has a view". I asked if he would be assisting with that and he said yes. NOT! Net result was that we saw the lake maybe 50% of the time we stayed. Then there was the problem of our actual site being a swamp. There was a perpetual large number of puddles of muddy, gray water under our camper all week. Would it have killed them to take some shale or stone and built the parking pad up a few inches? Fortunately I carry a large tarp that we put under our patio carpet that helped a lot, but in my view this was totally unacceptable. And its not like they don't have stone and shale available - immediately behind us was an active construction site with piles of shale everywhere. Such a beautiful site! And when I say construction site I mean it. Working excavators and bobcats and dump trucks included! Something they fail to let you know when you make your reservation, I might add. These people might want to consider being a bit more forthcoming about park conditions before they accept a reservation. Had I been told about some of this stuff, I may have chosen to take one of the sites in the back of the park and gave up the potential for a lake view. And why not stick up a fence to screen the construction? Expensive? Maybe. But they charge a premium for the "lakeview" sites, so I would expect "premium" type service.

Almost did not book at this location due to bad comments on other review sites. Glad we took the chance. Five nights turned into seven, at a very well kept location. Lots of seasonal sites, but very friendly people throughout. Overall, wider sites than normal. Road noise diminishes at night. Great views from various parts of the campground. Short drive (1/2 hr. back to Burlington). Now the BAD part of the review. For the cost, one expects level, gravel pads, not full of weeds growing on all pads. Non-seasonal sites could use a little bit of repair. Also, WiFi worst of any campground over the last ten years. We do not use to download or stream, but for even simple checking of email, one second you would have five bars coverage, the next second nothing at all. Even at best, extremely slow. Again for the cost charged, WiFi should be better. Overall worth the stay. Would very much return to this park. Will be nice if they ever get the situation resolved with the new sites. Hopefully this gets resolved soon. Give the place a try.
