I was excited to take a family vacation to lake, and we chose Dogwood acres because of its stellar reviews, but after one day I quickly realized that the owners must have written those reviews. At first impression, this place was filthy and very run down, but I was willing to look past this. As soon as the owner got our check for the week (paid in full up front), she was extremely rude to me and my family. The sorry excuse for a boat ramp is almost unusable (and they charge you to use it). The dryer in the laundry room didn't work (all cottages share one washer and dryer, that the owner also uses to wash all of the sheets for the resort). Do not waste your time or money, do some searching and you can find something much more enjoyable for you and your family!
