My friend and I booked a stay at Diamond Johns last week. I'd read tons of reviews on different sites and chose to make up my own mind. We stayed in a cabin. The cabin was clean and in great shape! We enjoyed the use of one of their canoes and went fishing on the river! The fishing was great that day! There were catfish, crappie, perch, black bass, and walleye. We stayed up all night sitting at our fire pit on our deck taking advantage of the free firewood they provide for you. John and Claire were as nice and professional as they could be! We spent time in the hot tub and enjoyed the stars. The campground was clean and well maintained. They had geese, ducks, chickens, peacocks, dogs, cats, and a horse roaming the property. The scenery was great! We were also just 1.6 miles from Crater of Diamonds State Park. We spent the day there and had a blast! Diamond Johns even provided the tools we needed for the day. They even let us return AFTER checking out to shower and clean up before our trip home. You wont find a hotel that will offer you that amenity!! lol
Overall I couldn't have had a better time! I've already made plans to go back next month with a few more friends. I highly recommend this for people who enjoy the outdoors and camping experiences.There wasn't anything to complain about!!! If you're looking for a frilly luxury hotel then this isn't the place for you. IT IS CAMPING! But, it you enjoy being right on the river surrounded by wilderness, this is the place for you! I cant wait until next month!!
