Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 16
I loved the campground, the scenery, everyone was very friendly.Only one thing I would like to see different is a recycle bin sitting with the dumpsters. Seems like such a waste all 4 dumpsters going to landfills when the majority could be going to recycling.
November 10 Just love the place by KWErick
May 31 Good size sites, but not private enough by kersch19
Not great for privacy unless you can get a site by the riverfront or a nice walk-in. Walk-ins are also scarce as they have cut back from over 60 to 23. We stayed from 5/26-5/31. People walked through our site(103) quite a bit to get to the restrooms. But, most of the sites are a decent size and the park does have a great atmosphere. Still, we are looking into camping at private campgrounds this year.
