I've been a Camden Lake Pine resident for 3 years. When I moved in I liked the complex but it has gone significantly down hill ever since. Now the grounds are a mess because residents don't clean up after themselves and the complex doesn't clean up the mess either. Residents allow their dogs to crap in the yard, the sidewalks and the parking lot and they don't pick up their poop. The smell is awful and you can't have your windows open because of the smell. The worst of it is the bug problems. My apartment is now infested with bed bugs. I noticed them after 2 and a half years of no problems. Then my neighbor moved out and the bed bugs came through the walls and infested my apartment. I told the manager who promptly told me that it was my fault and he would be charging me for their removal. The cost is $1,000. I complained but it didn't do any good. Even after the bed bug treatment they're still bed bugs. All of my furniture is basically worthless now. I can't even sleep in my own bed now because of the bugs. I have to sleep in a chair now. What am I supposed to do now, move? If I do then I'll have to leave all my furniture and clothing behind to avoid having the bed bug carried to my new place. Does that sound like a place you want to move into? It will happen to you and I promise you will regret your decision to move into Camden Lake Pine. Don't do it, you will hate your life if you do.

We would love the opportunity to discuss your concerns in person. Please note that we have methods in place for pest control. If an apartment has bedbugs, which is very rare in this area, a full inspection is carried out. As you have been there over 3 years, the bugs must have been bought in at some point. We are not aware of any homes that were vacated that had any issues and that may be the reason that the cost is forwarded onto you. If you do feel that you continue to have a problem please let the office know so we can resolve this. With regards to the grounds, the team takes pride in maintaining the property and strives to keep all areas clean and free of debris. if you feel that an area is missed we would love to hear from you so that we can take care of it.
