This campground is a rare find for sure. Yes, it's right next to the freeway, but after a bit, that goes away. What you get in exchange, is FULL HOOKUPS if you like, a clean and very well managed park. It is open year round,...More

Even though there is freeway noise, this is a well laid-out pretty campground, complete with rustic cabins, and handicapped sites. Lots of privace between sites and walking trails. Even if you don't camp, it's a nice rest and picnic spot.

Camp site and cabins are Awesome!!!! However to have one bathroom for the whole park and its a long hike from the cabin area. They should be putting in a another bathroom. What if you were handicap not a friendly park for disability.

The only reason I didn't give this campground an excellent is the traffic noise from the interstate. The campground is clean. Sites are easy to access. The campground host was nice.

The bathrooms and showers are clean. For the amount of campsites only one bathroom area can be busy. I agree with the other reviewers about the I-84 being noisy, the freeway noise was constant at all hours of the day. There are some nice short...More

We rented one of the cabins at the park. It was clean and cozy. There was a small refrigerator, a heater, small table and 4 chairs inside the one-room cabin, as well as two double beds and a short single top bunk. The surprising thing...More
