    It’s a shame that there are business owners like that. The area can use the visitors dollars & those of us that live/lived there really do care about how the area is perceived. It is beautiful there, Unfortunately people make it very ugly! I’m sorry for your bad experience. There are other campgrounds in that area of the state I hope you might find another in the area. Take care. 😉

    Huh, 2 nice reviews from 2 ladies whom can’t accept not only that times are changing, but that some people like apples & others like oranges. I have been at this campground as a seasonal camper for 8 years now, and this place fits me perfect. It must also fit some other 120 seasonal campers as I don’t see any of them leaving any time soon. Obviously, these people all enjoy the simplicity of rules, and the fact that there is a “honky tonk” establishment on the premises looks to me as a positive. And there are as many “families” there with children as at any campground that I have visited.

    And if you can NOT follow the few basic rules of the grounds, including 5 M.P.H., then YOU do not belong there. This lady who claims she was “only going 8 mph” ( which actually means 15) sounds like some speeder trying to argue with the police officer.

    I used to camp here as a kid over 20 yrs ago. Came back for a recent visit with family and had to drive around to find their site. I was going very slow as I had to keep looking out my window for my family’s motorhome. All of a sudden, almost out of nowhere, a golf cart screaches to a halt beside my driver’s side window and I rolled it down, happy to meet a local and hoping this person could help me find the site I was looking for. I was wrong, very wrong! I rolled down my window and could only get the word “hello” out of my mouth before (and I quote) a woman who I later came to find out is named Pat and is the owner said, “We have a speed limit here. It’s 5 MPH! If you can’t follow that, GET THE (eff word) OUT!!!” I was shocked! I know for a fact I couldn’t have been going more than maybe 8 mph or so. Heck, my car idles at 5 mph! And she rolls up obviously going 15 mph+ to scream at a newcomer?! I know there are kids, bikes, golf carts, etc all over so I understand the speed limit rule. BUT, that does not justify someone being so rude and screaming like that! A simple, “Hello, my name is ___ and I’m the owner. I stopped you because you were going too fast. Please be mindful of your speed or I will ask you to leave.” This woman seriously needs to get off her power trip, quit drinking and pull the giant stick out from her behind. The lack of respect was way out of line and then she floors her little golf cart topping max speed in the darn thing which is way over 5 mph. I’d been camping here since the 80’s and wanted to bring my kids out and show them one of my favorite places as a child, but this woman ruined the experience for us before we could even get out of the car. It’s a rarity that my children hear such language and I am so angry that they heard such a foul word come out of the mouth of an owner whom has her speed limit rule probably to protect kids out playing. Then she goes and screams that word at me with my kids in the car? Way to protect kids, lady! The old owners were amazing, friendly people. I will never again camp here and will post my story on every web site, blog, review board possile to warn others of these people. I’d also like to add, that since the owners, Pat and John have taken over, this campground is not very family friendly. No scheduled activities for kids, the old ‘lodge’ has become a honky tonk bar of sorts and was filled with drunks at 1pm on a Tuesday. This place used to hold so many memories for me with carnivals, pancake breakfasts, water balloon contests, pot lucks, dances, bingo, paddle boats, shuffleboard, etc. Now, it’s a perfect mix of 30-something drunks and the elderly. I say if a campground cult is your idea of fun, then this is your place! If not, any other place is a better bet. My whole family is now camping elsewhere with much cheaper lot fees and great owners that hold fun events for kids! So happy that I will never again have to idle through Whippoorwill hoping the speed Nazi doesn’t find an unjust cause to unleash on me and my kids.

      Just had the same experience, was not concerned about getting kicked out but yelling while a kid is in the car. We could have argued but respected owners decision. There are other ways to go about your buisness, swearing and yelling while kids are in the car shouldn’t be one. Tsk tsk whippoorwill

      Pat and John are very rude people and need to go see an anger management counselor. I totally agree with Emily. Worst day of my life when I visited the camp ground.

      Hi Emily, thanks for the story. I used to live just above the campground in the early 80’s. 1981-1983. If you were there then chances are we saw each other. Back then Dave was the owner, he owned a big very ORANGE trailer home. He & his girlfriend were SOOO wonderful. We would go down some nights so I could participate in the crafting classes that she, meaning the owners girlfriend, taught. They we’re the greatest people. Everyone that came there all said how great the place was. Dave had stocked Trout ponds for the visitors & everyone loved the BIG SCREEN TV. & back then that was big time! When it was bought out by that company & you had to buy your spot on a contract basis. Locals were no welcome then. When Dave owned it if you were a local & needed something from a store it was no problem to shop there instead of driving all the way into Wabasha or Plainview. I was hoping to take my family down there to show my son where we spent lots ot time when he was born. I won’t camp there now. People like that have NO place running a business where there are families someone should have clocked her k called the Sheriff to have her tagged for speeding. I hope you found a decent camping facility. Happy camping & thanks for your review, I apprieciate it. Take care. Lynn

        The review by Lynn has been altered. Some statements have been removed & one sentence has been added. It is a shame that PEOPLE(?) like that are allowed to own/run a business. The area really could use the tourist dollars. The towns closer to HWY 61 don’t really have to much trouble attracting the tourists, but the small towns that have things to offer have a harder time because they are off the beaten path. As a person that lived in the area a while ago please let me say I AM SO VERY SORRY THAT YOU HAD THAT EXPERIENCE & to the family that had their children attacked I feel bad that your child/children had that experience, please don’t let that deter you from trying other places in the area. Take care & God Bless. P.S. I nor do anyone in my family personally know the owners. I am just speaking as a person that used to live in the area.

    This is not a campground for families as there are no rules for quiet time. We were only there one night and there were campers all around us that were up partying until 2 am! When we told the camp manager about it, he said they don’t care how late people stay up and are loud, of course he said it with a drink in his hand and a golf cart full of empty beer cans! We were very disappointed and will not be going back.
