Nice campground, however, never saw a host on loop 5. Campers beside us were cutting down mountain laurel, the campers above us got into an altercation. Small children 4 and 5 years old wandering around the entire loop with no supervision. Teenagers yelling back and forth day and night. Definitely not the quite, relaxing weekend we had envisioned.

Stayed a week here and enjoyed it. Had site 55/56 so it was back in the woods. Bathrooms were clean. Generators were not an issue. Loved being close to so much water. The rivers were great. We also hiked the Standing Indian Loop (27 miles) and what a great trip that was!

Came back again to same spot from last fall visit. Had great neighbors the first night and bad (loud - motor mouth) neighbors the next...making my quiet forest experience not so great!! Ran my generator just to drown out the endless talking. Rained both nights and made for less than a fantastic experience...caught a couple fish in river by campsite!!... More

Spent a night at standing indian this past weekend. The campground was full of friendly people, hosts, etc. A beautiful park at this point of the season, with lots of fall colors and smells. There were a lot of campers, but all were quiet and easy to deal with . We stated in loop 5 (the most wooded of the... More

My wife and I just returned from our third camping trip here, each for 5 nights. We always tent camp but this campground has way more RVs/campers than tents. There are no hook ups for the campers so there are lots of generators running throughout the camp. I don't mind the quieter generators designed for camping so much but some... More

We stayed 4 days and had a great time. We do our camping in a tent so we had easy access to the campground. The hosts were friendly and very helpful. Bathrooms were very clean. The only negatives we had was campsites are not very secluded and the river is not good for fishing. They did suggest another creek about... More

If they ever rename the campground it should be "Running Generator". This campground may be a little different than others you've been to and it's helpful to know going in. It's obviously not an RV resort and does not have electricity at the sites. However, getting in the campground is big rig friendly and you will see some big campers... More

Beautiful spot in the area of several hiking trails and not far from town for food or supplies. The campground was well maintained, quiet, serene and the site was next to the river. They were very accommodating by bringing the wood to our camp site and dropping it off for us. Clean bath house and changing facilities great for families... More

We heard about this campground from a fellow camper last year and decided to try it. I am very happy we went there. We arrived on a Sunday evening and stayed till Wednesday. With those days of the week the campground was quite empty, we had lots of privacy. We stayed in loop 5 in camp 70 and 71 with... More

I last camped here back in the 80s as a kid. Recently I brought my kids to the campground and it was a great experience. It's nice they added hot water to the showers and the firewood availability was a plus as well.
