  • Rented a cabin for a weekend. I've stayed in many camping cabins, this is not one of those! Two bed, two bath, full kitchen, all cooking equipment supplied. Two decks, one with large propane BBQ. Boat...  more »
  • We loved this place, it was so beautiful and fun a really great resort. The only reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars is becouse the security did not do there job at all. In the rules they give you when ...  more »
  • Sites are unlevel, not maintained. Road to RV sites in very bad shape. Cleanliness of sites leaves much to be desired. Found donkey manure surrounding the water line and electrical box. Tall grass aro...  more »

  • We went to eat at the restaurant by the beach. The seats are leather and bulky so they were kind of uncomfortable. Good burger, salad and fries. Very good customer service. It was very hot when we went and it didn't feel like the cold AC was working. Luckily it was empty and we sat under a fan. Overall I'd like to give it another chance since the food and service were great
  • The place is definitely cute and has cool decor and character. The service was good and our waitress was very pleasant. However, the drink that one of our guests ordered was mediocre at best and my side salad had rotten tomatoes in it. All and all, would not come back here for food!
  • It was very warm inside the restaurant, so there was no relief from the outside temperature. Most of our meals (party of 10)needed more sauces, they were very dry and prices are high for the quality. We did have good service from our waitress, but we will probably not go back again.
  • This is Wednesday, May 3. I had to cancel a 2 night campsite reservation that started Friday night May 5 because our planned canoe trip is impossible due to high winds Saturday and Sunday. The outfitter, Jerkwater is providing a 100% refund. Pirate Cove refunded $10 of the $60 I advanced them because "it's their policy". No cancellation policy was mentioned when I made the reservation, none is on their website and there is nothing on the confirmation I received. Had reservation agent explain to her manager, manager didn't talk to me, and it was still $10. Poor customer service policy all around. Beware.
  • The food was good. We got there about 10 minutes until breakfast was over so we were given the option to have either. As I tried to order mine, the server walked away. Later, she was also ignored another piece of my party who wanted to order. The food wasnt that amazing but it was okay. They were fast and efficient.
