Nice scenery, but we will never go back

Date:

July 13, 2011

We loved the location of the campground, but never plan on going back, nor will we recommend to our friends. The owner was very rude to us, and really did not care that he outright lied about our group of 3 families who was there. When I confronted him about it, he refused to appoligize or correct his story. The other staff appeared to have better customer service skills.

One of our favorite campgrounds.

Date:

August 2, 2009

This is the 3rd time we have camped at Stony Fork in four years. The owners are very nice and the campground is very well kept. They now have WiFi although it gets very slow on the weekends. The pool is very clean but not heated so this cool summer has kept the water cold!!
Our favorite site is near the lake under a huge tree. The sites are a good size and grassy. Rest room are clean. All in all a great place to stay and, if you stay 6 nights the 7th is free!!

Stony Fork Creek Camp Grounds is my home away from home I have been coming to Stony Fork for nine years and the last six years have been the best since the camp grounds were taken over by Randy and Bridget Grim. The up grades and improvements to the camp grounds has been outstanding. The Grims are the kind of people you don't find out there any more they go out of there way to make everyone feel at home and welcome.

We have been going to Stony Fork since 1990. The changes that have been made under the "new" owners have been positive, making a family and pet friendly campground. We are looking forward to going again this year with our dog, Jack.

I have been going to Stony Fork for 26 years, and my family has been going even longer! Im not sure where these other fools come off saying how bad of a camp and the owners are. This campground as come a LONG way since the Grims took over. They turned Stony Fork into a wonderful place. It has always been a fun place to go, but since they took over they have made it 200% better then ever! How many camps allow camping all year?? how many off beautiful cabins to rent at a great price(and there VERY WELL kept)? how many offer different FAMILY events EVERY weekend during camping seasons? how many camps when you get there make you feel like a friend, like your welcome there? most places just want to make sure you pay and then they dont want bothered. You can go up to the Grims at any point of any day and they will drop what they are doing and give you there attention. If you have a issue with your camping ( for example something with your RV) They will do there best to help you fix it. Yes they have rules, they want the rules to be followed, they also want to make sure that people have a safe environment to take there familys to and yet still have a blast.

So i guess what im trying to say is that this is a fantastic place to take your family. Those other fools dont know what there talking about. Just because they were the one most likely being the rude ones and dont want to admit to being the problem doesnt mean they should turn and make the camp into some terrible place.( oh and i would say that being hit on the back of the head with a MAGlite is pretty far fetched!) I recommend this campground to everyone. Your are guaranteed to be greated with a warm welcome and your gonna have a good time. The Grims will make sure of it!!!

Great camping

Date:

February 12, 2008

I've read the review from the disgruntled group of campers that decided they didn't like to obide by common sense campground rules and had to leave the campground, but what they are stating, to me is a bunch of "Bull". First of all the owners have owned the campground for app. 6 years, and anyone who wen't there before they took over can vouch for all the improvements that they have made to the campground. This is the kind of campground that I want to bring my family, friends and their familys to because the Grim's do enforce rules for everyones wellbeing.
One comment that was made is that the owners were rude.. If that was the situation, I'm sure the people that the owners were supossedly rude to had it coming. I do alot of camping and do alot of my Karaoke and D/J business at various campgrounds and StoneyFork Campground is on the top of my list as far as places to camp at.

I was there the weekend of bluegrass in August when the other people put in the bad comments....i am sure these are the people the security had to ask to leave...those people had no comment sense or courtesy for other campers trying to have a good time I am sure those people were only here to cause trouble....if you are looking for a great place to bring your family I definately recommend this campground.

Stony Fork Creek Campground is Awesome

Date:

Yes I really don't know what some people mean by new owner at Stony Fork Creek Campground. When we have been going there for 5 years and it's been the same owner for over 6 years. It's an awesome campground! We have had family and friends come there too and they are ready to come back again this year. They have a lot to do and it's really a great family campground, because they always try to have things for kids to do. As far as getting drunk and getting way out of line, I wouldn't want to go any where that I would have to worry about that. We go to have fun and have a great time with the people we have meet there. It trouble makers like some want to go and act like they own the place and have no respected for others, then they need to stay home and make out an ass out of themselves. Looking forward to more great times at Stony Fork Creek Campground. Come and check it out and have a lot of fun.

I LOVE bluegrass music and dancing and camping so I thought that the Hickory Festival at this campsite would be the perfect vacation for me and my family, I will never make the mistake again. The campsite is set up in a beautiful setting but the abuse that you take from the nazis that own the place make it worth while to go to another campground somewhere close bye, also it seemed that the bathroom toilets were always clogged with toilet paper and feces. the only redeeming factor for staying the weekend was the unicorn we spotted over by the wave pool, I would rather wrap myself naked in insulation that stay at this camp again!

Date:

We have a daughter and love to go to this campground for the Hickory Fest that is hosted at stony fork every year. Well, this year their are new owners and they are so mean and rude. They hit a man over the back of the head with a big MAGlite flashlight just because he was yelling at the owner for being rude. We packed up our things and left immediatley. This was once a great campground and now its like a prison camp. You cannot do ANYTHING without getting talked to like a child. Awful experience

not fun

Date:

August 24, 2007

the camp ground was ok but there is no privacy anywhere. the kid on the fourwheeler needs to be given a demonstration on how to respect his elders. if you like to get chased around by a kid on a power trip than this is the place for you. the owner was a real prick and doesn't seem to care that it is his fault that people don't like his camp ground. i met really nice people that were camping there that go every year for the music that is put on for that weekend and most of them said how the owners are driving people away one by one. i wouldn't ever go back to this camp ground even if i was paid to. if you like blue grass music go there for the music only but find another place to stay. there's a few camp sites over the hill and they are much nicer.

Unlike 2 of the other reviews, I've always been impressed with the campground and the owners. This was our 4th camping trip there. Randy and family have always gone out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. This past week was a very busy time for them, because they were hosting a music festival. So naturally, they crammed more campers in than is normal. I don't have any complaints, and yes, they even told us to slow down! They were concerned for the safety of everyone, because it was so crowded. They had a huge responisbility this past week, and I think they did a GREAT job! We will definetly go back.

I did not like this campground. I have stayed at many campgrounds and this was one of the worst. I felt like I was sleeping right on the road. The tent sites are not very private. I thought the sites were too close together to others. The man that ran the place was very rude. We came back from a long day of site seeing only to be yelled at all the way through the grounds about slowing down. We were not even speeding! Then he had his son (who is not old enough to be riding a motorized vehicle) chase us down on a golf cart (He was speeding through and everyone was looking at him). He starting yelling at us that we better obey the rules or else they are going to throw us out. I have never been treated this way in all my camping years! The grandfather came out of his camper and started screaming at us. My husband took my son fishing and he said that everyone that came through they were yelling at. Then the father and grandfather came back and reiterated what the son already said. At night when we were sitting around the fire the owner came back again and said he was just checking on us. I do not need to be babysitted when I am camping. They did not even take the trash from the barrels all weekend long. Everyone around us was complaining also. We could not get out of there fast enough.

We found this campground by accident, and are so happy we did. The owners are friendly and helpful, and inform you about local events/areas of interest. They treat you like family. The scenery is amazing - it's nestled in a picturesque valley that is breathtaking. We'll be back year after year!
