“Nice Shady Camping Site”

Reviewed May 06, 2018

Overall Rating

For being a free place to stay, this place was great. Quiet most of the day except around 7am when all the trucks roll in with their fishing boats and again in the late afternoon once they leave. We were in spot 8 - had plenty of room for our 36’ RV, tow dolly and vehicle. If I were to stay again, I’d reserve spot 1, 3, or 5, as they a... more

“Misleading site numbers”

Reviewed May 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Deliberately reserved tent site 9, the only one on the water according to the reservation website, but when I got there, site 9 is actually the one on the end, lots of sun, no privacy because the street is on three sides. The waterfront site is actually #10, and was occupied. Thought about moving to an empty site with far more shade, b... more

“Beautiful Small Campground”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2018

Overall Rating

Arrived on Thursday 04/05/2018 and found a great campsite. I had number 7 and each campsite was partitioned off by a nice fence which gave me a sense of ownership where others could not encroach. Lovely surroundings and a Kayak trip on the Dead River was really different, great cypress forests. Mosquitoes were a minor annoyance but ot... more

“Beautiful, well maintained campground!”

Reviewed Jan 21, 2018

This place is awesome. The setting is beautiful. There’s a boat ramp. Sites are clean and level and not cramped. 16 RV sites and many tent sites. Fire rings. Children’s playground. Ample parking. What’s not to love. If you like to boondock, this place should definitely be on your list!

“Beautiful!”

Just left this free camping spot after 4 days. We had a great time and made some new friends! The road that you turn onto has no signs that you're on the right track and has a lot of no trespassing signs along it so we weren't sure if we were in the right area. Luckily we ran into a couple on the road and they assured us we were on the... more

“Great spot away from it all and free!”

This was a hidden gem for us. We only stayed one night because we were on our way east but we'll be back for sure. Lovely location and well maintained sites tucked way back in the woods on the Dead River. Great for paddling through cypress. Boat ramp. Porta potty. You have to register/reserve your site online even though it's free. Som... more
