“A solid 3 stars... Until the electrical box nearly electrocuted us!”

Reviewed May 18, 2016

Overall Rating

Why this is a 1* instead of 3*...

It stormed the second day we were there. When my boyfriend went out to open our storage bin he was shocked when he touched the metal key to the key socket. When we went went to unplug from the electrical box, we were shocked again. We do have an Electrical Management System and that saved us from frying our RV's electrical system.

We talked to someone on site and he said that the campground was flooded the year prior and that the electricians did a poor job of repairing the electrical system and this wasn't the first problem at the park. The Corps of Engineers ended up refunding our money after we complained. Proceed with caution!

Anyway.

This campground is used by a lot of non-residents on the weekend for boating, swimming and picnicking, so expect a lot more foot traffic on the weekend. There were very few people in the campground during the week.

Sites: This Corps of Engineers park has a mixture of reserve sites and walk in sites. There are several buddy sites (i.e. sites that are connected to other sites) that they won't allow you to stay at unless you are parking with another RV. OK... you could stay at one of these sites, but you'd have to pay for both sites even if you are only using one of them.

Sites are level and have electrical, water and campfire rings. The water access is not located next to the sites and we had to use two lengths of hoses (75' total) in order to get access. They don't actually advertise water on their website, so I considered this to be a bonus after we arrived at the campground.

Oh and make sure to get a waterfront site if you stay here!

Arrival: Attendant on site Wednesday through Sunday. He was very helpful in helping us find a site. There's a self-pay when attendant is not on site.

Restrooms: There is a shower on site, but we didn't use it. You'd definitely want to wear shower shoes if you use the facilities :)

Reception: Verizon service worked well at each site. We were able to stream Netflix and HBO Go here with no problems.

Other things....
--Make sure to get groceries before you arrive. The nearest place is probably in Harrison where there is a Walmart, Aldi and a few other grocery stores. They also have a Home Depot.
--The nearest place to get propane is Harrison RV Village campground
--If there is a tornado, the local sheriff opens up the Diamond City community center for people without shelter. He said that you could bring our dogs in the center.
