My wife and I are Fulltimers and love Pastime Park. It is convenient to Dublin, friends and family, and other interests. The improvements and expansion made recently, have made this park a cozy, comfortable park to camp. Always quiet. We have enjoyed watching some little tikes play softball and baseball. We will be back next summer😎

Very relaxing comfortable place. Pets ON LEASHES welcomed. Very nice bathrooms with shower room (no washer/dryer) electric and water included on most sites. There are a few spots with full hookups, and do have dump stations. Has a shelter house and large gazebo with benches.

A really nice quiet place to camp. I had reserved a grass site but when we got there the ground was still muddy. Met the caretaker and he was very helpful. I went up and asked to move to a gravel site. No problem with changing. The lady in charge is a dream to work with. Very thoughtful and cheerful. The utilities on the gravel site were close. We were not used to the mosquitoes however. Had a rain storm and the motorhome was covered with them under the canopy. I guess they rest in the grass. Spent 2 nights there and will definitely be back.
