Upon check-in you park at the gate in the lane to the right. There is no need to exit your vehicle, they will come to you. Left lane is for through traffic.

Handicap accessibility is excellent on the south half of the park.There is a seat and a hand held shower wand in the shower stall in the rest rooms by the Putt Putt Golf.

Handicap site #11 (on the south side of the reserve) doesn't have sewer hookup when all the sites around it do. This makes no sense to us. It's as if someone complained and they stuck it in. It's located very close to the lodge, pool, spa, laundry, mini golf and rest room.  It's nice and level. Other than no sewer, it's a great spot.

If you stay to the areas that are close to the road which divides the park, you'll have no trouble getting around and accessing any of the facilities.

Additional Information:

Although the park is split in half by a main road which is busy during the day, there's not a lot of traffic at night. 

The main facilities are located near the road on the south half of the park.

There's no store. Monroe is very near by so there's no problem with access to shopping.

The park is clean and well maintained.

It's difficult to get reservations during the busy season due to the high number of "monthly" and "annual" customers taking up most of the spots on the south side of the park where all the sewer hookups are. 

The north side of the park is level. There are no rest rooms on that side of the park, but porta-potties are available. There is a lodge located on the river side, but there is no rest room inside the building. You'll have to go outside and use a near-by porta-potty. 

Free WiFi is available at the main lodge (The Red Barn--on the south side of the park) or you can purchase WiFi from a company that has antennas in the park (currently Jabba Communications). You can access the WiFi from anywhere in the park if you pay for it. Our only experience with Jabba was horrible (constant disconnections, interruptions and slow speeds), but from what we understand, it has been upgraded since our initial visit and things have improved.  We will update if we ever visit again.

The laundry accepts pocket weights (quarters) or debit cards.

We were there at the end of the season (9/26/18-10/8/18). They closed the upper pool and opened the lower pool to everyone since the weather was holding up and left the spa opened until the end of November. That was awesome. We enjoyed our stay except for the crappy WiFi.
