“Nice Campground Next To The River”

Reviewed 8/20/2023

Nightly rate: $18
Days stayed: 2
Overall Rating

Very pretty wooded campground next to a river. The two other people who were there stayed to themselves and weren’t loud so it was nice and peaceful. Have 1 bar of Verizon signal. Highly recommend.

The only negative was that when I got there, 3 of the 4 unoccupied sites had tags on them saying they were reserved for that night and the next 4 nights, yet nobody ever showed to any of them. This is a first come first serve campground so it’s kinda sucky that people show up and reserve and never show. Not the first time I’ve encountered this. Forestry Service should really put a stop to that.

Overall Rating

Well kept campsite. Fit our travel trailer. Wouldn’t recommend anything over 28 feet total. We stayed at site 6. 7 total sites. Plenty of trees for shade, wildlife and easy access to the river. Saw deer and even had a bear come into one of our neighbors campsite.
