Park is newer but under the current owners and manager I wouldn't recommend it. Things are not consistent. Office, pool and other amenities close early or don't open. Live music is the same every weekend and unless you like hearing geriatric people singing old county, it never changes. Tractor rides, operated by seasonal helpers don't run if they feel there are not enough kids in the park or if they don't want to do it. There is a big problem with retaining grounds keepers. Grass goes un mowed at times with gravel sites having weeds growing through and not well kept. Reviews they don't like posted on there site are immediatly removed so don't complain and post it on there site. It WILL be removed. We spent a season there and left in discussed. Other things that we found annoying are that the bounce houses are mostly full of rain water and dirty/moldy. The tent camping is a joke. There is no water at these sites and the bathrooms are a long way off at the lodge building. New Wi-Fi was installed at the beginning of 2016 but worked worse than the old Wi-Fi that mostly didn't work. They raised there rates to $3,150 for a seasonal last year, $41 per night. There are far better places for far less money. There is a reason other parks have long waiting lists and this park has huge availability. People don't stay more than 1 season.

We visited the campground for their Christmas weekend and had a great time! The campground is very clean and all the personnel were friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool! We'll be back for sure!
Nothing special. Did not find the staff to be friendly. The one time I had opportunity to meet the security person she was quite drunk. Overall, the campground is clean, but as I started, dont expect anything special.
I absolutely love this campground and will be returning. Very family friendly and the staff are very nice and helpful. Lots to do for kids young and old. Beautiful pool, kiddie pool and hot tub.We even met some of their seasonal campers who also help to make the park a safe and wonderful place to stay...such pride they have for this park is truly wonderful. We highly recommend camping at Alice Springs.
I would give this campground a rating of zero stars if I could. I did not get to camp here because my whole family was not allowed into this campground. The owners are stupid fools. To discriminate against dogs by breed is uneducated and illogical.
We have camped here a total of 3 times and with no doubt will be returning. It is such a great family campground with lots of activities, live music every weekend, fun bounce houses for our kids, a very nice pool, and tons of other things for our kids to do. They had something to do at all times. Very clean campground also! loved it and will be back soon!
