East Campground Review

Aug 13, 2020by Jaime Manarang
I just wanted to send a warm regard of the lovely experience we had at the East Campground this weekend. This was our first time at this campground and I have to say I will be back. It was very well taken care of and can sincerely appreciate the sanitary measures such as the bleach sprays in the washrooms that it has left us feeling very happy with how this campground is managed. I do not have 1 bit of feedback as we felt it was a wonderful experience despite the hot hot weather! So again I want to say thank you and we look forward to returning next year!
