Overpriced and DANGEROUS Electricity!!!
We decided to route down Highway 200, and at a previous park a neighbor had recommended Beyond Hope as a great waterfront park to stop in at. After not being able to score a spot at neighboring Sam Owens National Forest campground, we came here and were at first happy to find anything available for a Friday night.
The plus - due to a last minute cancellation, they had a front row spot available for the night which gave us a decent water view. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We did enjoy a swim in the lake, and the gourmet restaurant & bar onsite was a pleasant surprise. And the sunset here was amazing.
- They have a major electricity problem. Our pedestal was 30a, and at times the voltage sagged down to 98 volts. They asked everyone to not run more than one A/C because of their old wiring - but we could not even run our A/C. This is dangerous and is enough of a sag that it could damage your RV equipment. Word is they have electrical renovations planned for this fall.
- This is a vacation resort - especially on weekends. Our spot was right in the middle of several families enjoying a weekend campout. I don't care how well behaved kids are, when you have bunches of them around with their parents on vacation too.. well, that's a lot of rowdy parents. Thankfully, the bar and sunset kept us occupied until bedtime. But wow, all those families were up way early puttering about underneath our windows. So much for sleeping in.
- No sites have sewer, and there is no dump station onsite. If you're here long enough to need dumping, it's just their honey wagon service.
- Their WiFi was down during the time we were here. They said it was a regional wide thing as the internet company was doing work.
All and all, the sites here did not impress us - they are rather close together. Particularly one ones in the upper area. The marina looks really nice. And the onsite upscale restaurant was a complete contrast.
At a rack rate of $45/night plus tax - we expect at least working electricity!
No working WiFi during our stay, AT&T was barely usable but our Verizon LTE was able to stay online.
