Report: We've been camping here for years...last three years with an RV (tent before) and have enjoyed it very, very much. However, this year I've noticed that the swimming beach is not being taken care of and weeds and rocks have taken place of sand. It use to be a beautiful, sandy beach but hey, the golf sand traps look wonderful. Also it should be a discount for campers at pool.
