Bad Experience


July 7, 2006

We rented cottages for the weekend. It was a horrendous experience. The cottages are filthy and smell of cigarette smoke. More like a cheap motel room you would rent for $20 a night in Atlantic City. Talked to the manager who could not move us. We ended up leaving the campground without spending a night there. The deposit/renatl amount is non-refundable. We lost our $160 deposit and ended up staying in an Econolodge. Do not be fooled by pictures on their website. The cottages and RV sites are too close for any kind of privacy. The area around the campground is filthy and unkept. Absolutely, do not rent anything there....
