“Country Acres is the best run, best kept, best cleaned campground. If you do have an issue, they want to know about it. You blink, and somebody’s there to take care of it. You don’t see that in other campgrounds. And we’ve met so many nice people. It’s a special place. We’ve told so many people about it.”
