So far we have been "inspected " 3 times a day and we haven't broken any other rules since Tuesday. The owner and or staff drives by our sites really slow and stares. Quite uncomfortable as they make rules up and we don't know what is going to happen. Our neighbors next to us made reservations here back in February. They asked for a few specific sites and the owners wouldn't tell them what site they were getting. When they checked in the owners were rude and wouldn't tell them what site they would get unless they paid in full first.

Another thing here is we are not allowed to purchase firewood outside of the campground. Yet in back of our sites....in talking 20-30 feet, there are trees down and can be cut up and used for firewood. We are not allowed to move any of that firewood AT ALL. Doing so is grounds for removal from the campground.

This place is not full at all by any means. Yet the owners have told another family they need to move their trailer to another site so another trailer or MH can pull on there instead....not once, but twice. Now this family had 4 kids. They left today because they couldn't take it. What an inconvience.

As for my hammock, I went into the woods today off the campground property and took a peacful nap. I got around the hammock law here.

7 more days here on eggshells and I'll reveal the campground.

I've had similar happen in New Orleans. All started cause I told the helper guy I'd be better off backing my own rig in without him being in the way flagging. I wasn't rude. It's their campground, but my rig. Started with my satellite dish wire being across the sidewalk. Rules said nothing on or protruding onto sidewalk. Ok, I was in the wrong. But, never mind all the other trucks with hitches stuck out in the side walk and others with water hoses and wires across it. Then it was one thing after another for our few days there. Either way, never again.

Sounds like a place I'd leave with my black tank open on the way out, or flatten the cart tires one night. I don't take kindly to pricks.

last day, I'd set up my hammock, cut down trees, and break every rule I could think of before leaving. And wave and yell "How you doin'?!" every time they drove by.

Don't go there again.
Tell us what campground it was and we won't plan a trip there either.

Word of mouth is valuable in the Internet age... Some people (campground owners) don't get that yet. They will be run out of the business if they continue to ignore this fact.

We should start a thread about campgrounds that are unreasonable about the little things. And we can all avoid them.

Have fun camping at all costs.

Must be a South Dakota thing. We were at the Rapid City KOA this summer, a place I definitely don't recommend. Many of the sites were mud holes and any time people would ask for some gravel or to move the manager's comment was "Ill just check you out and you can go some place else". Really nice attitude when you have reservations for several days in one spot. Not only was her attitude totally obnoxious many people on staff were the same way. Worse KOA we have ever been to in the 38 years we've been camping.

In the one year we've had the Greyhawk we've been on the road 52 nights. Only one was at a private campground so we have no experience with overly zealous owners/managers. While there were posted rules at the various state parks we've stayed, the rangers and camp hosts were not obsessing over minor transgressions. Must be a private park kind of thing.

Just a note we traveled a long distance to this very camp ground and have had not one but three water filters (Brand New) plug up in less than a week.
