I would NOT recommend a membership at The Lake, but in trying to give a fair review... This was our third summer of having a swimming membership at the Lake. On the positive side, we thoroughly enjoyed our friends and the sand and sunshine. The inflatables are super fun, and the diving boards provide a great challenge as the kids try out different dives. My kids enjoyed the gaga ball and mini golf. We've had a lot of fun there.

On the negative side, the owner has an unpredictable temper. Over the years, I have watched people be berated by the owner for infractions that seemed very minor to me. I feared the owner and his verbal assault of people. However, the positives of the Lake outweighed this for our family. Also, the owner could be kind and friendly at times.

Today, we had our membership revoked from the Lake. My sons had climbed the ladder to a slide two at a time, instead of one at a time. When they heard the lifeguard's whistle, they immediately stopped. I should have noticed the double-slide-climbing and put a stop to it, but overall, I'm used to my sons climbing and having fun at home, and it seemed like normal pre-teen and teenage boy behavior to me. The owner yelled at my sons. I watched them act respectively repentant, telling him, "Yes, sir." Then the owner called me over and through lecture and overreaction, revoked our membership.

If you are considering a membership at the Lake, there are definite positives! If you have preschoolers or all daughters, I could recommend this place, if you do not get upset by overt and unpredictable anger. If you have teenage or pre-teen sons, I would recommend finding a better place to do your swimming. Also, if you want to have your family at a place where you will not need to fear temper, moodiness, and verbal assaults from the owner, you'd do better elsewhere. Overall, I'd give this man and his wife our prayers, but I don't recommend supporting him with any money.

This is a great family campground. The swimming is safe and the owners have added a lot of great activities to do with your family and friends. The seasonal camping sites are beautiful and are only getting better. The turnout for the Campground Halloween was amazing and so much fun to see the Campground come alive. Looking forward to next season.

Overall

Anyone thinking of camping or swimming at The Lake Campground under the management/ownership of Kris & Amy Schmid, there are probably a couple hundred people (adults and upset kids) that would tell you to stay away from The Lake Campground”.
· You will not be treated with respect.
· There are different rules for everyone.
· The rules that are given will change in a heartbeat.
· If you are a woman expect to be talked down to (my wife has personal experience on this). He is the poster boy for a Male Chauvinist.
· You have to learn to walk on egg shells because you never know when he is going to turn against you.
· The owner is what I call a “telephone tough guy”. You will get texts, emails and if you are really lucky you will get certified mail at home. If you would like to have a face to face – forget it.
