“Not a whole lot happening unless you're a boater”

Overall Rating

Spent just one night before the Columbus Day weekend expecting it to be a quiet time but was not to be. At around 11PM I was surprised to hear the sound of an engine revving at high RPMs. I figured it was an RV coming in late and trying to park but it lasted for around a half hour and so - then I thought maybe it was a boat on the nearby creek. In any case, way too noisy especially that time of night. And then while eating breakfast around 8AM, I hear this noise and look outside to see the ranger going around in a little 4x4 utility vehicle that sounded in need of a muffler. Lastly, not a good choice if hiking is in your plans. The one trail that goes around the campground is only a couple of miles long and there are a couple of places where it crossed wide open spaces with no signs indicating the path.

Sites seem fairly level. The bathroom was clean though it lacked hand soap. The staff was not unfriendly but not exactly friendly either. So, given this park is out of the way, I have no plans on returning.

My $21 rate for a site with 30AMP service includes a senior discount.
