“Don't let the website midlead you”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2008

After looking forward to camping during Memorial Day weekend, we selected Gooney Creek based on its location and wonderful photos on its website. However, after arriving at the campground, we were immediately disappointed. Rather than a campground, this place amounts to little more than the owner's backyard. While we expected the Memorial Day crowd, the sites were far too small, barely allowing for a vehicle and tent. The site we reserved was on a creek. The sound of the flowing water was relaxing at night, but our proximity to a major roadway made even talking difficult, so we didn't get to hear the creek during the daytime hours. To make matters worse, the owners maintained a lot of junk and trash on the property, an obvious spill over from the salvage yard they operate across the street. Overall, I'd recommend the campground as a place to get a good deal on used tires or auto parts, but not as an enjoyable way to spend a weekend. We ended up leaving after one night, despite having a 3-night reservation.
