Overall Rating

Passed through this park for one night on a week long road trip. It is only 5 or 6 miles from I-70 at the Dorrance exit.

We stayed on a Wednesday night in mid-September and there were maybe a dozen sites occupied in the whole facility, which made for a nice quiet stay.

We stayed in Eagle Loop at site 16 (E16) which is right on the water and provides beatiful views. The pad is loose gravel and moderately level. We did need to use the "lego" pads to get the coach level, so be prepared.

Water spigots were available throughout the campground and we could drive up to one at an unoccupied electric & water site to fill our fresh tank. If the campground was at capacity, you would have had to use a spigot in the common/shared space and I don't think you be able to drive close enough to hook a hose up unless you have 50' or more of hose.

Dump station is available, although we did not use it. In the Eagle Loop, the public restrooms and showers were clean, modern and all appeared to be in working order, although we did not use the showers.

Our OTA TV antenna had 3 of its 5 bars lit up, but we did not watch any TV and cannot confirm which stations are available in the area.

We had strong and reliable unboosted signal for both Verizon and AT&T. I was able to create a hotspot for my laptop and get some work done in the evening.

It got a bit buggy at dusk, but hey, you are camping near water so there will be bugs.

All in all, very enjoyable experience at a well maintained USACE facility.

There were some campsites designated as "Walk Up Only", meaning "First Come First Served", but I would recommend making your reservations in advance on www.recreation.gov to ensure you have a site when you arrive.
