“campground OK, but.....”

Reviewed Nov 03, 2015

Overall Rating

The campground was OK. The sites were large easy enough to get into. Restroom facilities were OK, but I was disappointed. I wanted to come to a national forest. Instead I came to a campground that is in a forest setting. Everything around it is urban. There is a town close by and lots of homes and shops. I wanted to get away from this and not be in the middle of it. The river wasn't swim-able, maybe you could canoe it, but where would you go?

No firewood to purchase in the park. The chap looking after it said to a couple of doors over and there was someone selling firewood. Well they sold firewood, but it might as well have been rocks since you couldn't burn that stuff.

I paid on-line otherwise you need to leave cash or cheque when you pick a site when you pull in. There isn't really a proper registration office.
