“Our first COE experience”

Reviewed Aug 14, 2017

Overall Rating

We had wanted to try a COE campground and this was a beautiful place. Very clean. Staff was very friendly and explained how COE's operate. We got the 50% discount for the the America the Beautiful senior pass. Site 15 was concrete pad with fire ring. Next to the river and view of the dam. Took the scooter out and drove across dam and got great pics. Stopped by the boat launch which was very busy and checked out the lake.

“Busy but pleasant”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here due to Prairie Flower being totally booked. We were pleasantly surprised as how well we liked it. Sites were decently spaced. Bathrooms were clean and well kept. Campground sits below the damn and during our time here the lake was very full and they were releasing water. Many people from the city seemed to come watch the water so it made for a very busy park. A lot of gawkers.
The sites were level and fairly easy to back into but having the sites laid out a bit differently would have helped. We saw others with longer trailers struggle a bit just due to the 90 degree angle. Our short Airstream didn't hurt for our ease of backing in, not so sure we wouldn't have been a bit frustrated with our fifth wheel. Access to the dump wasn't too bad but not the easiest we have seen. Electricity worked fine even during extremely hot days.
This isn't your "out in nature" spot but if you want something close to the city, it isn't bad. Traffic noise at night was low.
