My wife and I stayed for two years, but the second year was the worst. The bath rooms are nasty and at that time a single shower was a mess. We invited guests who said they where surprised I stayed there do to the dumpy look. My wife had to take cleaning supplies when she used the restrooms. I brought... More

I just thought that i'd stop in to answer a few of the lies being spread by a few campers who were booted out of the campground for their behavior. 1. The pictures shown in the traveler pictures are pretty misleading. The picture with the old tractor and equipment is NOT located near the main area or campers. It is... More

All of the reviews on this site are right on. It is a small family run campground, and it shows. The permanent campers are just like a family and are friendly and inviting. The campground itself is a bit run down and need of some serious upgrades, or just finishing projects. It is a great location close to everything and... More

There are junk cars everywhere along with a barn that has been sitting half-built for 10 years, a showerhouse that was supposed to be complete on memorial day (only one shower... More

This place is the best for people who aren't in to the huge camping scene like a KOA or State Park, like me. It is family owned and it shows! I met the owner and their two boys. We had no complaints, and were more than satisfied. We are looking forward to returning to see the updates as they are... More

A group of friends & myself had planned a camping trip for the weekend of July 9th. I greatly enjoy planning/researching all of our adventures, & was dissappointed when I had a hard time finding reviews about campgrounds in the area. Hesitantly, I decided on the River Retreat Campground. What a mistake! We are a group of young adults who... More
