New ownership as of 8/19/22 has been a disappointment. There is no clear on-site management. There is no way to contact the owner.
Rules/policies/rent/office hours changes have no advance notice and are communicated poorly, if at all. Passport America discounts were cancelled 8/19/22. Rules are not uniformly enforced. Rent jumped $100/month on 1/15/23 per letter on everyone’s door – I suspect to fund all the new improvements to make this an RV “resort” as opposed to campground.
Restrooms/shower, laundry facilities, cable and wifi are decent. There is a grassy area to park extra vehicles/boats/trailers. A new pickleball court, corn hole boards and gazebos have just been installed.
In the office building, there is a small rec room with card tables and a closet space with a broken down treadmill and elliptical. Neither work well.
There is a coded gate, but the code has only changed twice in the last 15 months and one or both arms get stuck open frequently, negating the “security”.
Nighttime street lighting is inadequate for walking after dark without flashlights and the speed bumps are tripping hazards in the dark.
The pool is pretty and kept clean. Lounge chairs and sun shading is around the pool.
There’s a nice stream running through the property and 3 tortoises in a pen by the office.
Some lots are long and asphalt; the rest are shorter and dirt/gravel. Many of them are not level. There are picnic tables, charcoal grills and fire rings at each site.
Water is from a well and pressure is low. Underground pipes break periodically so expect unannounced outages. Sewer is a septic field at the SW corner of the property and is very stinky for those sites close by.
The campground is located in a nice wooded area with the larger sites under mature trees. There is a nice half mile trail on the adjacent vacant parcel to walk yourself or your dog. There’s also a fenced dog park, about 15’ x 60’, at the NW corner of the property.
I’d recommend Cherry Blossom for a night or 2 but not long term. I’m leaving after 15 months for a place where I feel respected and valued. Daily rate is $60/night
