“Good experience camping with baby for the 1st time.”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We are staying on a Monday and Tuesday, but is a very quiet and peaceful campground. Great for my not-yet-walking daughter as the campsites are nice and grassy. While there is shade, I wish there was a little more. Additionally, more trees would provide more privacy. You can see all of your neighbors. Luckily, they are all quiet and re... more

“Disappointed ”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice for a quick night passing through but wouldn't stay here otherwise. The bathroom was very run down and I had to psych myself up to use the shower that had mildew growing on the curtains, poor lighting, and bugs everywhere. I never saw a single worker while I was there. And very little of the campground was actually mowed. It ... more

“Nestled In a Hallow...”

Beautifully, well kept campground along the north side of Pawnee Lake. The lower two loop of sites are first-come-first-serve. 30 & 50 Amp service with non-electrical sites, also. The upper loop are reserve-able. A quiet area to spend the weekend. Can get noisy during holidays, especially during July 4, with fireworks, etc. I agree wit... more

“Nice campground. Disgusting bathrooms”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2016

Overall Rating

Nice shaded campground. Level, asphalt sites. Close to town. We enjoyed the children's museum while passing through.The yellow jackets and mosquitos were pretty bad here. But worst was the bathrooms. They we the most disgusting bathrooms we've seen after almost a year on the road. We chose not to shower our kids because they were so gr... more

“Nice state park campground.”

We stayed here while travelling from CO to WI. The campground was about 10 minutes from I 80. We could not hear the any highway noise. The campground was very clean and in top shape going into the holiday weekend. View of the lake was nice. The sites were level and paved. Many sites had electric. The park had water fill sta... more

“Unremarkable electric only campground”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2015

Overall Rating

Date of Stay: July 2014 Not much to say about this place. Non-water or sewer sites (water available on site and dump station is close by down the road). Some reservable sites, some first come, first serve. Stayed over the 4th of July and the place was a zoo for the holiday. Loud with fireworks. But other than the 4th, it was a fa... more
