“Worst site in a nice park”
Reviewed Oct 11, 2016
We were really looking forward to this campground, even though we didn't have a riverfront site. We were disappointed. Our pull thru site had only a small patch of dying grass, it was mostly rocks and the firepit was a 2 inch high ring set on top of the rocks. The picnic table was almost as wide as our living space.
We asked about moving to a riverfront site and received a gruff "All booked." He didn't even bother to look or make any effort. Ends up there were at least two spots on the river that we could fit in and were open our entire stay.
The entrance to the park is awkward and it can be a little tight coming around the fence. The gate does not go down and they allow day pass access to the river, day parking is inside the campground. The rapids are an attraction to kayakers and we saw some tubers exiting at the campground.
The river is beautiful, and if you have a riverfront site you will most likely love this place. The riverfront sites are mostly rock, but have a real firepit set into the rocks with a grill. We would sit each night at one of the empty riverfront sites with our glass of wine and enjoy the sound of the rapids, we never sat outside of our depressing site.
Our site was fairly level and most the others looked level. We had decent At&T signal, but the wifi was good enough to use. We didn't use the bathhouse or laundry. The roads in the campground are a little tight for big rigs, but most will be able to make it.
Sites 28 - 34 on the river are the best. Sites 20 and 21 back up to a rather stagnant looking pond. The one pull thru that I would consider is 23. It has a nice grassy area for living space. Sites 30 and 31 are probably the best sites in the place. All riverfront sites are 30 amp.
I would stay here again, but only at a riverfront site or site 23. It was so disappointing to not have an outdoor space that we could enjoy when it was such a beautiful location.
