Fun getaway for the kids, popular for family reunions

I asked my kids what they think about Downata. Here are some things they said:
"The water is perfect temperature. I love the Dragon slide."
"It could use new picnic tables."
"Need more camping spots."
"The swimming is fun and warm."
"The funnest slides I've ever been on."
"I liked how our family could spend time together."

We love going there, and obviously we're not the only family to think so. Some of the sites are pretty close together (yet, it is one of the quieter campgrounds I can remember staying at?!?). There are no waste hookups.

The staff is a huge reason why this is such a fun place to visit. From helping with reservations, to the friendly lifeguards and the campground staff, I have nothing but good things to say about how we have been treated. On our last visit, a tornado was spotted somewhere in the county, and I watched the staff quickly alert everyone, and then help with awnings, canopies, etc.

My wife and I take long walks, and we enjoy watching the Sandhill cranes and other birds near the campground.

It's a remote place as far as food goes, but fortunately the restaurant right in the main building serves really good food (we love the onion twigs and shakes).

So 5 stars, even though it's not a fancy campground--but because we always have such a great time--and best of all, they don't charge extra for large families! It's a little thing, but something that has become one of my pet peeves.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
