An inexpensive lunch out can be found at an inn just a short drive away. Turn left from the campground and drive about a half mile. The inn on your right has a restaurant, and sandwiches can be purchased for lunch at a very reasonable price. Though it's a small town, Lancaster has everything you might need, including gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants. We noticed that the people in town were especially friendly. Best Things About the Resort:The views, the extras like the waterslide, and the meeting room.Resort Experience:
Though we didn't stay at Roger's Campground, we attended several meetings there and enjoyed sitting around a campfire late into the night. The atmosphere was friendly, and the owners went out of their way to accommodate our festival of about 250 people. They prepared a dinner for all of our guests one evening, and the grilled chicken was especially tasty. Their meeting room was basic, but large enough to hold 200 chairs and several display tables.
The cabins here have a bedroom, small kitchen, and a bathroom with running water. There are plenty of campfire sites and tent sites, and there is also a motel on the grounds. The rooms are about $45 each, and the mountain views are gorgeous, as you see in the pictures below. When we were there, there were children enjoying the water slide and pool. The office had snacks and other necessities available for guests. The admission fee for day visitors into the campground is $3 per person.
