We stayed here early November. Arrived on a Thursday and it was nearly empty. We were greeted by friendly staff. There are 2 coded entrance gates to get to the RV sites (tent sites available also).

The park is clean. Terrain is hilly, which allows for different level sites. There is a variety of pull throughs and back ins, amenities and views. 47 sites, about 13 are 30 amp, the rest are 50. Most have a fire ring and grill. No sites have sewer but there is a dump site at the entrance of the park. They all have pads and great views

There are 4 playgrounds. We don't use the restrooms but checked one out. Not great but not gross. The women's showers seemed to be in better shape than the men's.

We stayed at site 34, which was fairly private, quiet (except for the boats) and with a beautiful view down to the water. We had 30 amp. On our site the water and power were in the passenger side, which was odd but we made do. Only a few sites had that.

A few days we.just took our chairs down to the edge ( a few feet above water) and sat there all day watching the boats.

One note, if you want to get your mail forwarded to you this campground does not allow that.

We camped most recently in February 2017, and had a really lovely experience. The weather was unseasonably warm, and the campground was practically empty. We like sites 20 or 21, and scouted sites 33, 34, or 35 for our next stay. All are pull through, and are high on the hill overlooking the lake. 33-35 should get really nice sunset views.

River Forks offers water and electric hookup, with a dump station on the way out. The camping area is well-removed from the day-use area, though not so far removed that campers couldn't easily use the day use area as well for swimming or boating. There are also docks around the campground area for boating campers.

The views are my favorite part of River Forks. I doubt there's a site that doesn't have a good lake view, and the entire park is nicely shaded. Our site had a grill and a fire ring. Not sure if all sites do, though.

We did not use the bath house, but it was centrally located and looked easily accessible.

River Forks is "local" for us, so we will certainly be back. The location is great with relation to restaurants and shopping in Gainesville, and there's a WalMart Market about a mile away.
