There are a lot of pretty trees that provide shade in some spots. That's the only nice thing about this place. The roads are full of pot holes, everything is run down and looks like there are years deferred maintenance. We didn't use the pool so I can't comment on that. A sliver of the lake is visible from some spots but it's miles away. This resort has potential but needs a lot of work.
It is a okay park. But you have to get up on the hill around spot 50 or so to really enjoy it. All the other spot are straight dirt and now grass. I gave 3 stars because the lake is 3 miles away and you have to pay 10 dolllars a person to get in. Also you can't launch you boat unless you pay 100 dollars not including per person fee. Oh if you want to be a member for the lake it's 2200 dollars Crazy price for catch and release only.
The lake is half empty and not usable because the greedy water district drained it into the underground aquifers. The nice huge rolling grass area that shows on their website is completely dead and the lake looks like a swamp since the water district won the law suit. Website is very misleading. The pool is far from campsites. The lake is a disgrace compared to what it used to be. The trees is all this place has going for it. Overpriced for what it is. Go to Lake Skinner for a better experience at half the cost with a nice lake and a rental boats. I haven't seen any upgrades to this place since they raised their prices. 2 stars because it's close to my house and the Halloween event is fun.
