Overall Rating

This site has a very well manicured tent camping area with picnic tables and fire pits.

The RV area is a bit less defined. We are in a 24 ft travel trailer and managed to find at least 4 sites (which were really just mowed areas for parking.

A couple of tips:

  1. the nicer areas for RVs are straight passed the entrance. Traditionally you would turn left into the campground, but if you continue straight there is a turn around right on the water access area with some good RV parking there. 2 if that is full or if you miss it and make the left hand turn into the campground there are some grassy and gravel areas to park there as well. But you won’t have the sound of a he rush of the river.
  2. If you have a trailer or big RV don’t pass the campground host (who is in the last parking spot in the campground). There is a dirt road beyond the host which I mistakenly though led to the camp sites. It is tough to turn around if you continue on.

There is a trail a few hundred feet away but the noise isn’t bad. There are pit toilets in the main campground area and a boat launch if you have kayaks or something.

All in all very nice
