“Very Nice Campground”

Overall Rating

Very nice people took it over and are turning it around. It’s already very nicely maintained and the trash that used to plague it is cleaned out. Very easy access, sites are well spaced, level, and clean. Water and electric at (nearly?) all. Biggest of rigs would have no problem getting in. Some pull through, most back in, but very large. Very nice fields, trails, and playground for kids. Great location right on the river. Bathroom and shower house is very clean and nice. Dump station included and has full rinse hose. The city still manages the website and fails completely. Prices are $23-$25 night. Do call before going, or at least before parking, because they take phone reservations but don’t publish that online or update reserved sites.
