“Good Family Campground”

Reviewed 7/11/2022

Nightly rate: $30
Days stayed: 4
Site Number: E16
Overall Rating

Sites were kinda level. We stopped in visiting friends. 50 Amp electric, dump station and outdoor water spigot at the shower house. Lots for a family to do; fishing, swimming, basketball, hiking and frisbee golf. Picnic table, fire ring and wood. Maintenance could be kept up a little better, but it served our needs.
