Timothy Lake Resorts consists of two separate parks near one another: TLR North and TLR South. We stayed at the South branch. It is a middle of the road RV Park other than its size.

Timothy Lake Resorts is the Thousand Trails park that almost redeemed my opinion of TT, but not quite. The last few stays at their parks have been lackluster, especially due to cramped sites and overly narrow roads. Timothy Lake Resorts is an improvement there. The sites are consistently roomy and the roads are easy to navigate and well maintained. This is a big improvement. Our site was a bit sloped from side to side, but not so much our levelers couldn’t handle the job.
Checking out the camp store and campers lounge we found them to be nothing special, but nice enough. The bathrooms there were quite decent, a step up from previous parks. But when we went to check out the “comfort station” closer to our trailer, we found a badly dilapidated restroom and shower that absolutely reeked of mold and mildew. Having an older facility is no excuse for not keeping it clean. This was the worst restroom I’ve seen in a long while. It’s a good thing that wasn’t the only one available.
Wireless and cable are pay to use, which is a little disappointing but not too unusual. All our hookups were in good order. The park has the usual array of playground toys, field games, and a modest swimming pool. Once again, Thousand Trail’s antiquated reservation system means we had to search the park for a spot. Fortunately, it wasn’t especially full so we had a decent selection. THis was the one case where the inconvenience of it was canceled out by the ability to select a well-positioned parking spot.
I can’t quite recommend Timothy Lakes, but I can say it is above-par for Thousand Trails. But for the mildew mansion, I might have given it a thumbs up, but that kind of neglect rubs me the wrong way.
