·Only 1 shower house for large (80 acre) camp layout.
·Shower house was VERY dirty and not well kept at all. It smelled like feces the whole weekend.
·VERY ANGRY CAMPGROUND OWNER – Check out the rule list – count the number of ! and !! and you will see the attitude you will receive.

Pulling into Hillview Acres Campground late on a Friday night, we were greeted with a smile and quick service to get us to our site. We purchased a gator load of firewood and that was going to be delivered right to our site. What a great start. We were warned to be sure to follow the posted 10 MPH speed limit. We cautiously worked our way to our campsite only to find there was no empty site where we thought ours was to be (few sites were actually marked). We wandered around in the dark trying to figure out where we were to be, a campground host drove up asking if we needed assistance and we shared our confusion. We learned then that a pop up was situated on our site. We were told to just take the site next to it. As we proceed to do so, a camper at a neighboring site walked over and said oh, that’s our site for tomorrow night so you’ll have to take the next one. Moving down to the next site on a considerably less flat level site makes finding decent location for our tent a challenge, especially in the dark. At this point, the campground owner approaches. He has no idea why these folks are on our site but gives no insight as to how to solve the situation. We told him where we were going to place our tent and the camp owner says, “Oh no, that’s too close. You’re actually in the other site.” So here we are on our lowering elevation in a site that is 7 yards by 15 yards hoping to house a tent, a full size pick up truck, a fire ring and a table. We suggest we just set up for the night and re-evaluate come morning when we can all see what’s going on. Mr. Camp Owner snaps, “You can either take this site or take your money now and leave. If you stay, it’s a three night minimum.” “We can see better in the morning,” we state. “Nope. And I loaded this wood and brought it to you. You need to take it. I have work to do!” (Remember it’s 11:00 at night). Finally, we find a place to pitch our tent (mostly on our own site). We wake up and find that our placement isn’t so bad, sleeping on relative flat, with a great view of the playground and the port a john. As long as the wind didn’t kick up, we shouldn’t burn our tent down. The neighbor did comment on what a nice song we sang as we tucked into bed at night.(See the proximity of our next door neighbors?) The closest flushing toilet and hot water availability is a 15 minute walk (by an adult) and the shower house is deplorable. The port a john was less than desirable after a long holiday weekend and no attention. At the playground, my children were faced with a ladder to the slide with a broken top rung with very rough edges and a slide that slid into the gravel covered ground.
Throughout the weekend we felt like we were observed as real trouble makers. For instance, as we pulled out Sat morning to go to the state park, we were behind another vehicle and Mr. Camp Owner was smiling and waved at them, obviously pleased to have them at his facility. As we passed, he created his power stance, feet apart, arms crossed, and watched us pull away. He then stepped into the driveway behind us and watched us leave. We watched him walkie-talkie someone and we figure he thought we were leaving. Wasn’t he probably disappointed when his camp host radioed back that we were nested for the weekend.

On a positive note, we learned the work he had to do. He sat on his gator at various spots around the park with his radar gun making sure everyone was going under 10 mph so our little ones were safe. He was proud of his mission, letting us know he had purchased 4 of them. We would have suggested he use that money on updating his restroom facilities….but at least our dirty little ones were safe from speeders.

HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE!!

Date:

August 1, 2009

I live in Guernsey County. My family live in Columbus. They wanted to camp near me so that they can see the grand kids. I went into the campground. I saw signs for car pass but I wasnt sure what it was. I honestly thought it was for cars staying there. I drove past and was stopped by a man in a 4 wheeler. He asked me what I was doing, I said visiting my parents. He said you have to have a car pass turn around and get one. I obliged. I got up to the office and this man ran out all irate and stopped my car. He screamed at me that my kind isnt welcome here to get out of his campground, get off his property. I was puzzled. I asked him what the problem was. He said you hot rodder, this is a family campground, you could have ran over a kid, you were going 15 miles an hour. I said, are you serious? I have 2 small children in the back I wasnt hot rodding with my babies in the car. They are only 8 months old. The other man came up with a speed gun and said I clocked you at 15 mph this isnt a race track! I then got angry. I said my parents are staying here and they are paying good money to be near me. He said get off my property. I dont have a cell phone, he wouldnt let me use their phone so I had to drive 15 mins into town to use a phone to call my parents to tell them. I mean school speed limits are 20 mph! My dad went up to the office. The man said I was driving like a maniac, squealing my tires and spinning gravel. My dad knows what kind of car I have and knows this is impossible. He cussed my dad up one side and down the other. Told him to get out. So he said fine. The man threw his money at him, then had someone stare at them until they packed up. In the mean time my nephew came out to tell me. I was sitting on the side of the road because I wasnt allowed on property. When my nephew went back in they told him he wasnt allowed back in. He didnt even do anything. So they then put a van in front of my parents motor home so that they couldnt drive more than 5 mph on the way out and had someone follow my parents up to the state park where they met me. They are rude, nasty, unprofessional. There is no way I would ever tell anyone about this place. I have never seen a service business be so horrible to their paying customers.

Our Hillview Acres experience was unpleasant

Date:

June 21, 2007

The staff at Hillview Acres is very adamant about guests following the 10 mph speed limit and we were happy to oblige. Upon returning to camp late on our second night of our stay, the employees stopped us for going too fast. They claimed to have caught us going twice the speed limit, which we definitely were not, and summoned three camp vehicles to our site to throw us out. In the end they let us stay until the morning, but one of their employees sat up and watched us from a nearby trailer. We won't be going back.
