Report: Not family friendly. We had just arrived and were setting our camp up. Our kids had the dog off the leash. The host told us to put the dog on a leash which I did immediately. I went back to setting things up, gathering wood, etc. A half hour later the host then thought the dog was off the leash when it had not been taken off at all. He and the contracted site manager came down and threatened to have us removed by the sheriff. He even had someone on the radio call the sheriff. I assured them that the dog had never been off the leash since I was told to put her on. The site manager then told the person on the radio that I "decided to comply." No apology from either of them. We felt like we would be under a microscope the whole time there so we packed the next morning and left. We were supposed to be there 7 nights. Beware, very unprofessional and not family friendly. The site is run by Aud & Di Campground Services.
