The RV campsites are well/kept. Very quite. Lots of paces to walk your pet. Bath house was clean and had a washer and dryer. Level campsites, many are pull-through. Pump out station conveniently located.

We spent a couple of hours here on Labor Day and really enjoyed our visit. Beautiful setting and lots to explore. We are going back next month when the leaves are changing to take family pictures.

I don't know for sure, but I would assume they WILL NOT have kitchen utensils supplied in the cabins. If I were you, I would purchase disposable cutlery, plates, etc. when you stop in Athens.

Yes, it's safe to drive thru. Put your windows down as the smell is unique to an old wooden bridge. Then park your car and walk thru, stopping to enjoy the view of the river from the window at mid-bridge.
