“Quiet area to camp”

Reviewed Feb 18, 2019

Overall Rating

I think site 6 for tent camping is the best of the three tent sites. It sits further back, but has a direct view of the water. The other two are close to the parking lot. It was quiet. Only one other tent. The wild pigs were crazy loud at night and startled us as we weren’t expecting them. Only heard them at night. Never saw them. Great kayaking. From the camp site, go to the left which is more upstream. If you go to the right you will have trouble getting back to the tent due to the current. There is a maze that of canals/paths to take if you go to the left. Wish there was more to do in the area.

“Quiet place with friendly people”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Small camping area with 4 RV sites and a few tent sites. I stayed here in a 35 ft Class A and that’s about the largest rig that would fit in the site I was in (site 4). No hookups - just a port a potty and trash receptacles. All sites have a grill, picnic table, and fire ring. It’s on a very small lake that is connected to the river. There are railroad tracks nearby and you do hear trains occasionally. A boat launch is right next to the sites so there are fisherman coming and going. For a free campsite you really can’t complain!
