Shady Lakes isn't perfect but you'll probably have a good time.
On the positive side, the campground is nice, there are some decent fish in the lakes, the staff is friendly and the swimming pool is pretty good.
Our rental camper was in good shape except the mattress in the main bedroom was a box spring, not a mattress and was uncomfortable to sleep on. The door lock was broken on the inside of the door so the door could be locked from the outside but not from the inside.
The miniature golf course is terribly run down but they often had other activities going on for kids.
