unhappy camper
By far the worst camping experience our family and friends have had in the last 10 years. We like to try new campgrounds each year and this was the first time I have felt compelled to let people know how terrible our weekend was. The owner was unreasonable, short tempered and judgmental. The customer service was awful because we were made to feel as a bother merely for expecting the services we paid for. We are an experienced camping group and have never been treated so poorly or had such a stressful time. Our group was crammed into an area that was not even designated for camping and still charging per site where there was none. All that mattered was the almighty $$$$. Sad memories and sad kiddos for this weekend :(

Happy Camper
I feel compelled to respond to "unhappy camper." We also camped at Dogwood Acres this weekend and had a great time. My guess is that "unhappy" was part of a group that left their kids unattended most of the time and also disrupted the campground by being loud at their campsite until 3 am. It's not "unreasonable" for the owner to be upset when one group of campers cannot follow the rules. The sites were certainly not small. They were a good size. We found the owners to be friendly and accomodating but then again we followed the rules. The campground was clean and well-maintained with lots of great amenities. We would definately visit Dogwood Acres again.

Happy Camper too
I also feel compelled to respond to "unhappy camper". Our family has camped at Dogwood Acres over Memorial Day weekend for the past 5 years and we have NEVER had a negative experience there. The owners are more than accomodating to a visitors needs, the campground is always clean and the sites are a perfect size. As with all campgrounds there are "quiet hours", if you respect the rules, other campers and the owners you will never had a problem. We will definately camp at Dogwood Acres again!

We have also camped at Dogwood for several years now and have always had a very good experience! The owners are more than accomodating; very friendly and go over and above to help ensure their guests enjoy their stay! We would recommend them to anyone that would enjoy a fun family camping experience!

I will tell you that the "unhappy camper" perhaps needs to be alittle more respectfull and follow the rules which ALL campgrounds have...campgrounds that DO NOT enforce certain rules..we will not return to that particular campground. We have camped at Dogwood for 3 years now and also camp as a "GROUP" and have never had a problem what so ever..and we do have fun! I can say that we have camped at campgrounds from Florida to Maine, and by far Dogwood is one of the most accomadating campgrounds we have ever been to, and is one of our favorites! We will continue to go to Dogwood 3-4 times a year,and look forward to seeing many of the great folks who are part of this campground.I certainly recommend this campground.
