“Clean, quiet little park with big sites and big bugs!”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2016

Overall Rating

We spent one night here with @aluminarium with the intention of sharing a huge single site, but were later told this is against the rules and one of us would need to move, they moved out to the Seney Township campground.

The remainder of our stay here was nearly silent, with only a few tent campers off in the distance, and maybe 2-3 vehicles passing our site each day. This park is off the beaten path and a ways out of "town" so it was a very peaceful and quiet stay.

The same attributes that make this a peaceful park are two sided, of course. Cell service with Verizon was very unreliable inside the Airstream without the booster, we would sometimes have a few usable bars of 3G, but it would come and go, the booster and omni provided a perfectly reliable and fast connection (17/10Mbps). Because the park is nested deep within the forest and directly adjacent to the river bank, their are A LOT of bugs, and some of them are very large.

There is trash service in the middle of the park and a hand-pump well for water that would work for filling jugs but does not provide any way to connect a hose to fill tanks, even with the water bandit because the opening is so large.

“Quiet little DNR campground”

Reviewed Aug 10, 2016

Overall Rating

There were 2 other tent campers here when we arrived. We picked site #1 because it had good solar. Behind our site was a path to the river.

It was extremely hot and humid when we were here in August. After one night, we decided to move to the Seney Township campground down the road so we could plug in and run the a/c.

Cell service would jump between 3G and LTE for Verizon. With the booster I was able to get 15Mbps down and 2.10 up.

Oh, and this campground has the biggest flies I've ever seen.
