We were in town for the TCCRA motorcycle races and thought it would be nice to stay in a cabin on the lake. We are not picky people, just looking for a place to cook our meals and
 
    take a hot shower. As soon as we drove through the entrance, my first thought was ''ick!''. There are residences on the property that look like they are from the introduction to Sanford & Son. Rather than a nice view of the lake,
 we were looking at a chain link fence, and a house so huge, that we couldn't even see the water. The furniture in the cabin looked like it came from one of the yards by the entrance. One of the chairs to the table was a safety hazard. If we would have sat in it without noticing that it was defective, we would have fallen backwards and could have been injured. The recliner and couch were just really gross. They could seriously use a steam cleaner and disinfecting.  
    The cable TV was a joke. Almost every channel we tried to watch wasn't available, so we ended up watching FOX 4 (a local channel).
The absolute worst part was the septic system backing up. The kitchen had a sign at the sink that
  said not to put any food or grease down the drain or all drains would back up. That's understandable, and a fair request. BUT the sign in the bathroom that said you can not flush toilet paper was ridiculous! If the septic is in such bad shape that you can't even flush toilet paper, then they don't need to be renting the place out. Who wants to see others' yucky paper in the trash while they are doing their business? Even the paper made specifically for septic systems wouldn't have been flushable.  
The septic was so bad, that while I was taking a shower, I heard gurgling. I looked down & noticed the water wasn't draining. Then when I got out, water was seeping up from under the toilet. So the rest of the showers went like this: Turn water on & get wet super fast, turn water off. Lather up. Turn water on & rinse off super fast. And one of our kids was lucky enough to not get a shower at all. Just a wipe down with a wet rag. The family staying a couple of doors down said their septic backed up too.
We decided to walk down to the fishing pier. The fishing pier was ok and the swimming area looked like it would be ok in the summertime, but the property looks like it needs some serious TLC!!! It is so run down.
There are some cabins that do face the lake, but I peeked in the windows & they look pretty bad inside too. This place has a lot of potential. If the owners would put some time and and a little money into it, it could be a really great place to stay. Unfortunately, it looks like it is just withering away and going downhill.

What I did like about this place: Each cabin had a picnic table on the back porch and brand new charcoal grills. There was a screen door so we were able to leave the door open for fresh air. The website says they don't provide any kitchen utensils, but our cabin actually had a few odds and ends. There were no fire rings, but we were allowed to have a fire on the ground. Although the cabins are duplexes, we did have some privacy because there was only one other family staying there, and they were in the next building. Says Jon (Sun, 18 Apr 2010)
