Wow! Write this one down in my memoir, ME, a 59 year old Grandma of 8, got banned from a campground! I guess after reading the reviews, I should be grateful Tiffany didn’t kick me out right on the spot like she had done with so many others. At least I got to stay for the remainder of our family reunion.
A little background… two of our six campgrounds were the ones down by the lake, we shared our kayaks and beach toys with other campers, had campfire sing–a-longs at night with guitars and John Denver songs and invited other campers to join us. Most of our group was Mormon, so there was no drinking, loud or lewd behavior or foul language. We were the model campers.
We had a family reunion there and reserved 6 campsites. We had a total of 8 cars, so we knew that our extra 2 cars were going to be charged the extra $6/day per car.
Then, at the last moment, my sister’s friend decided to join us for one night. When she checked in, she accidentally registered her car in the wrong campground, making it the 2nd car. Then shortly after, my son comes in and registers under the same campground, and Tiffany wanted him to pay $20/per night because his car was the 3rd car.
I then went up to see what the issue was, but I couldn’t get a word in edge-wise to explain what had happened. Tiffany went on and on and on about her rules, her place, her home, we are guests, etc. She kept getting louder and went on and on about things that didn’t even pertain to this issue. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard. Make it stop!
She was very confrontational and defensive right from the start and had no desire to listen to what I had to say. Since I knew I was not dealing with a rational person and she was not mentally stable or even had the ability to listen, I gave up and paid the $20 extra per night. Her taunting me as I walked away screeching that she was right, she’s always right and she has video cameras all over the place to prove it!
Then on our last day, my nephew tried to make reservations for our family for the following year, only to be told that myself (his Aunt) was banned from ever coming back!
Tiffany and Herb should not be in any kind of business in dealing with the public. They have no social skills and are angry, bitter and sad people. They act as if you are invading their territory and are a grave inconvenience to them. Actually Herb seems very sweet and nice. I think he just does what Tiffany tells him to do.
Please sell the place and let someone who likes people take over. This is a beautiful place, great for children, kayaking, swimming, hiking, fishing and ATVing. It is too bad it is tainted by angry, evil and ugly people.
I am thinking of getting a group together to go in and give them a Native American ritual of smudging with sage to cleanse their mind, body and spirit to remove the evil that lurks within.
The worst campground management
We arrived at the Morning Star campground on Thursday the 27th of july for a family reunion. My sister drove to the campsite and got out of the car and her little dog jumped out with her and immediately a man there named Herb starts yelling at her to put her dog on a leash or he will ask her to leave. She just got out of the car!!! The next day most of the family arrived. My daughter brought her Lab/Mastif mix dog and they told her she couldnt stay there although all dogs are on leashes. They weren't going to let her come in and tell us what was going on. She was crying and they finally let her go into the camground to let us know the problem but they charged her 10. to do so. My brother in law volunteered to drive the dog 3 hours home and then returned so my daughter and grand daughter could stay. That night we where playing games and listening to music prior to the quiet time of 10 pm. At 10 pm we all started quieting down but that wasn't good enough for Tiffany, the MGR. she came to our 10 campsites and threatened to have the sheriff remove us for being disorderly. She mocked one of our kids at the reunion because she didn 't know the name of the person in charge of the reunion. We had more family arrive on saturday and they where almost turned away, although they had reservations. They where informed that we all where on notice that we would be kicked out if there was any loud noise from our campspots, this was also a ways from the rest of the campers. The management of this resort is run by mean, nasty, un-compashionate,people who are ugly on the inside. Check out the reviews on Yelp also. You'll never want to go here and camp. Also a Calif fishing license is not valid at this lake. You will have to pay 25.bucks and you can only catch 4 fish. She checks the speed of cars with a radar gun. No dogs allowed on the beach or in the lake but you can throw your cigatette butts on the beach and in the lake. Most dogs are cleaner than the people that own them. This is a very strict campground that is not fun to stay at. You cant relax for fear of getting the boot from Tiffany
