Is it possible to give negative stars? A half of a star is much too good for this park. First we pulled up to the gate with our 5th wheel only to see a sign that said the entrance was 12' 10" high. My 5th wheel is 13' 1" high. The girl at the gate told me I had to back all the way up and go through the exit and didn't offer any help backing up. Who puts that kind of entrance at a campground when most 5th wheels are 13' high? When we finally got into the campground the "escort" golf cart that showed us to our site took us the wrong way down our street to get into our campsite so he took us all over the campground going the wrong way down one way streets (full of potholes) until we finally came to the other end of our street to pull in correctly.

Once we got hooked up the electric lasted about 30 minutes then went out. I went over to the connection to check the breaker and as soon as I touched the breaker it came loose and started sizzling. Maintenance did come by and replace the breaker but the electric went out twice again the next morning. Two gentlemen from maintenance were nice enough to take care of the problem for me quickly by replacing all the wiring in the box. This part is not a complaint but is just one example of how shoddy everything in this park is.

We went July 4th weekend and no pool....yep it's under construction in the middle of the summer, way to go management. They neglected to mention this on the phone when we reserved our sites. Of course you can pay extra to use the water slide...well for the first day, it was broke after that. Then there's the lake, you can swim in that if you don't mind the very under qualified lifeguard mumbling how she f****n hates kids. Yep, several of us heard her say it more than once. Since it was hot with nothing to cool off in I figured I'd watch some TV in my camper, but wait, you have to pay extra for cable on a full hook up site. Oh well, no TV.

Now we know there's no pool, bad electric, a broken water slide, a dirty lake with a nasty "lifeguard" so what else does the wonderful Buena Vista junkground have to offer? Well, I hope you don't use the campground's restrooms because if they're not locked, they're filthy. In addition, keep your kids off the roads because there were plenty of people driving way too fast (25 mph) down the streets and right by our sites with security no where to be found. One camper was so drunk he drove his car over a tree stump and tore the gas tank off the car. Campground management found him there complaining with a beer in his hand. Did they call the police you ask? Nah, too much trouble. Quiet time is 11:00 at Buena Vista Junkground but some campers don't care and blare spanish music well into the night all over the campground. Not once did management or security drive by to check things out.

Onto the store and game room... the store was pretty much empty of supplies and the game room was full of old games in which most didn't even work.

As for management and staff the average age was about 17.

Morgan RV Resorts owns this junkground so I'm scratching all of their campgrounds off my list of possibilities.

So, if you're into spending $57 a night for filth, bad electric, nasty lifeguards, a broken waterslide, no pool, lots of spanish music and a generally horrible experience go to Buena Vista Junkground. If you're not into these things go anywhere else.

RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN FROM THIS PLACE!!

This is camping at its worse. DIRTY, DISGUSTING, RUN-DOWN. Showers were dirty and did not work, not to mention no hot water. I showered my kids at the faucet on our site. Five bathroom stalls wherein only two barely worked (do the math: two stalls for hundreds of people). Four sinks (two of which did not work). The pool was so DIRTY I did not let my kids go in b/c I was afraid they might catch an infection. The water slide is old and that pool is DIRTY DIRTY. To make matters worse at the time of check in (after driving 4hrs) I was told that I had no reservation for a site with water and electric and that besides there were no tents allowed on the site # the call center had given me. The manager (Amy) was so obnouxious, unpleasant and just plain nasty with the "I dont care attitute" - all she said was "what the call center tells you is not our problem we are fully booked! Since we had no choice (but to stay or drive back to NY) - we stayed. Only to find they were not fully booked - and we just took it upon ourselves and moved to site with water and electric. Not that they would have noticed anyway, as there is no organization whatsover in this "camping field". In addition to paying for using the run-down water slide, mini-golf, etc, we had to leave a deposit for an electric adapter for the electric outlet. The black lady at the check-in counter was very nice and understood our plea - but there was nothing she could do. Also the other girld at the counter tried to help us, only to be shouted-down by her dumb-ass manager, Amy. PLEASE CAMPERS - RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AS FAST AS YOU CAN -!!!! YOU WILL THANK ME FOR IT!!!!!
