Overall Rating

The price with electric and water along with waterfront with the federal senior pass was $22 a night. No cable and has a dump station. Sites are acceptable,picnic tables and fire pit. Facilities were clean and had washer and dryers. I would stay again. We have straight talk moble and it worked fine.

“Great area, disappointing reservations and check in”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2016

Overall Rating

We're not sure why it was so problematic making our reservation here and finding the actual campground, but it set a really bad tone! The address we were thought was for the campground took us on a 15 mile road to nowhere. It was all just so confusing. I called and spoke to a ranger and he sort of helped us - he couldn't really figure out where we were. So by the time we finally checked in, we were not really greeted like we were welcome, that we were more of an inconvenience. Maybe whoever was checking us in was having a bad day. We just found the people running the check in were less than helpful. Even when I tried to get info on hikes, we were mislead!
This is a HUGE campground and it seems it is more for locals. If you know where you are going, it probably is great. So suggestion for a better experience, treat your campers like a valuable customer.
We loved all the area had to offer, but we discovered it all when we stayed up the road at the Canal Campground. We did get in two great hikes, but we stumbled on them ourselves.
Normally, your neighbors are very friendly or at least nice. When it was time for us to pull out of our site, a truck was blocking our access on the road. I pulled up in the car and asked when they would be moving. He said in a few minutes. Husband pulled behind me and we still had to wait about 7 minutes. I think he wanted to finish his cigarette. He was just downright rude.

I can't believe as much people has to pay to camp you don't have 15:00 fans from Walmart put in the bathrooms for air circulation .97 degrease can't even go to the bathroom or take a shower and feel clean when you come out it rediculious . The State parks has fans in the bathrooms and showers . I don't know if y'all have had any other complaints and don't really care if the cituation don't change don't know if I will ever come back we the people pay way to much and y'all can't afford to put air circulation in the bath rooms and shower houses.

Hillman Ferry Campground Site T-42. Nice shade, but shorter than we expected. Bill plotted the route to our first adventure to the midwest (southern Illinois), to visit his mom, brother and sister...
