This was our first visit. My wife and I managed to get a spot for our camper and our daughter and son-in-law camped next to us in a tent. It was Memorial Day weekend, so it was VERY crowded, and we felt like our neighbors were on top of us. The other campers overall were well behaved and the staff... More

Thank you for your review. We have no control on the weather, but we do try to control the issues the weather brings. Our camp sites are the same size as all other camp grounds. Due to the fact you put a trailer and tent with two vehicles is why you felt crowded. And of course it was Memorial Weekend.... More

They do promote family values and unfortunately... More

Full hookups available! Internet at certain places on the site! Not good Verizon cellular service. Next door is a charming bird that wakes... More

When I read the reviews I was hesitant to stay here BUT, I decided to make a reservation and decide on my own. My husband, 2 grandchildren, daughter, son in law and I went and enjoyed the stay. We had a shady spot and could see the river from our campsite. The people at the front desk were very friendly... More

Be advised they changed the name from Rainbow camp ground to Up the river camp ground. First of all the camp site was dirty and smelled the restrooms were horrible this place is not for a family! Foul language, "F" bombs everywhere would make Joe Pesci blush. Sheriffs were called all night, loud music way past 10 p.m. and the... More
