Owner is an ahole

The owner needs to have a procedure to remove whatever he has stuck up his rear. This guy has the worst attitude I've ever encountered in a business owner, I bet they go out of business! The biggest issue are the canoe rental prices! They are TRIPLE the price for the "mio-4001 bridge" overnight trip compared to other places in the area! I'm not kidding, check for yourself. TRIPLE the price for overnight trips, DOUBLE the price for day trips!

The setting here is nice enough, but the owner is quite possibly the biggest jerk I've ever met.

When we arrived, we politely asked the people working there to let us know if we were being too loud to please let us know and we will be sure to turn the music down right away. They said that they would do that, no problem. We said the same thing to the people in the cabins and tents next to us, and they were on board as well. After the first night, no one had said anything to us and we didn't appear to have any issues.

On Saturday (our second day there) at about 4 pm, I was walking to the store at the front of the site to get some ice, and the owner approached me with a look on his face similar to this: http://goo.gl/tm8A0. Yes, it was scary. He asked me if I was staying in sites 6 and 7, to which I replied, yes I am. And then the floodgates opened. He used every swear word in the book and ripped to the core of my soul without letting me get a word in. Not one word. He was mad that we had our music on (at 4 pm! Quiet hours started at 10) and he demanded we turned it off, or else he was calling the cops and kicking us out immediately with no refund. After receiving enough verbal abuse to kill a small elephant, all I could do was laugh and walk away.

This was just one of several incidences in which he treated us and others (including an elderly man whom he kicked out of the store and yelled at for using a profanity - hypocrite much?) rudely in the two-day span that we were there. My advice: do not go here if you're young. Scratch that. Just don't go here. Period. There's a reason that every other campground in the state was packed that weekend, and this one was not even 1/4 full. Nobody likes to be treated like an animal.
