"Nice Overnight Stop"

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
Found this campground on ToGo App. Stopped by for an overnight stay. The water was shut off due to the colder temperatures, but not a problem. I went to the back door for the office, a gentleman had me fill out a card and charged us $20 for the evening. Many thanks for a nice evening

"Good proximity to museum"

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
Just a little way off the highway. Quilt museum only a few minutes away. Lots of shopping nearby. Campground itself has potholes and a little muddy in wet weather. Sites pretty level. Large pull through sites are close together with no tables. Bathrooms are ok and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful.

"Phenomenal! "

After a beyond stressful travel day with mechanical issues, we pulled in after hours. Did not have reservations, thankfully this campground obviously takes situations like that into consideration. It was super easy to locate sites that were available for a stay and the convenience to pay for the accommodation either before or after the office...
