The location was good, beside the river, grassy sites, but the staff were up tight and not friendly. The bathrooms and showers were dirty. There were open condoms by the bathroom. Would not stay here again. Not a place for children.

Not great, and not even a REALLY nice location that can justify the restrictions of the site and unfriendliness of the staff. - All fires were to be put out by 10pm, they literally walk around with buckets of water to do this for you if you haven't already. Meaning - no lights, no heat, no fun. - Although in... More

I have never shared on here before about any of my experiences as they have all been good experiences up until now! We stayed for 2 nights this weekend and let me tell you this was the WORST campsite I have ever stayed at. The location itself was beautiful, but be warned upon arrival you will be handed a booklet... More

We found the staff to be very snotty and rude. The bathrooms were dirty and needed a code to enter. Not very clean either. Had geese and dog poop all over. Would NOT recommend this place to anyone. Would never stay there again!!!

Grassy treed sites adjacent to the river inlet. Good layout of the campground; free Sani-dump. Clean!! Friendly helpful staff. Playground, swimming, pet friendly. We have stayed here before & will definitely be back again. Thank you!

The camp ground itself is ok, gets pretty windy in the open area and there is limited sites in the trees. This site use to be great to camp at but after last night, things have obviously changed. All children must be supervised at all times, which means that if you are a single parent with two or three kids... More

We stay here all the time and love it. This campground had a reputation for rowdies but ever since the new caretakers took over a couple of years ago they have done very well returning it to a respectable family site. Rules are no different than any other place. People that don't like rules tend to be the ones that... More

We had a lovely spot along the creek and enjoyed wildlife viewing right from our campsite. Toilets & showers were nothing fancy, but were fine. Noise from the road & highway was disturbing sleep at times. Hosts were helpful and mostly friendly, but could be very blunt bordering on rude at times (though I am sure it is easier for... More

Staff was great. Zero tolerance for rowdies. Lots to do in the area. Right on the river. Good prices and good clean amenities. A small store allows you to buy small needed supplies but there is a complete town just up the road.

I chose this campground as a cheaper alternative to the highly recommended but expensive B&B's in the area that would not take a 2 night reservation. The campground itself is nice. Check the map when getting a site because some are nice along the river and shaded by trees; whereas some are in an open field. It's a small campground... More
