Stayed here over Mothers Day weekend 2015 in a 26' travel trailer. Our site was across the road from the river and was level and provided full hookups. I have no complaints with the facility but be aware that they do not make reservations unless you send a check in advance and do not accept anything but cash when you... More

When you camp you are looking for nice level sites, good bath facilities and perfect scenery. With River Valley you get all three. We had a wonderful site on the river, but the center sites and mountain sites are equally nice. I had not been to this particular campground since I was a teenager. I found that it had not... More

We stayed here previously and loved our campsite! It was the last one on the river. We could watch the water cascade over the many rocks and hear the water rushing throughout our stay. The only downside I remember was NO wifi or cell service. And I do mean NONE WHATSOEVER. Other than that, it is a wonderful campground...especially if... More

This is the only campground we ever consider staying at. We drive out of our way to get there. The camp sites on the river are unlike any other, so scenic, so serene, so calm, so secluded (or at least it seems that way). Love it! This is not a 5 star, as it is camping, complete with bugs, dirt,... More

Our first time here. The scenery was beautiful and the river peaceful. The new section is much nicer than the back side which needs attention. The place is run like a boot camp with a manager that's less than friendly. We won't return.

We Camped there Aug 6 -10 in site B5. It was our first trip there and gotta say it was prefect! Clean shower house centrally located. Everybody there was very nice. We had some rain but we didn't let it stop us. We didn't have reservations but I wouldn't suggest that. We got lucky. We are definitely going back to... More

Our first experience at this campground and it was amazing. Our family stayed for a week in a full-hook up campsite that was right on the river. You could look out our door and see the rapids falling over the rocks. The campground was quiet and peaceful with all the campers being very courteous and helpful neighbors. Will definitely recommend... More

If you are looking for a super nice campground on the river, this is it! We stayed Memorial Day weekend along with many other campers but never felt overcrowded. A couple of things to know - they don't accept credit cards - all cash. When you call for a reservation, they will hold it but you have 2 weeks to... More

We were at this campground over the Labor Day weekend. It was a bit crowded as was every other good CG in the area. Nice sites. We could not get river front but had a great time. Place was clean and people friendly. Only down side is we lost money at the casino but I guess that was not their... More
