“Best Dam Noise Ever”

Reviewed 7/3/2020

Nightly rate: FREE!
Days stayed: 1
Site Number: Closest to dam
Overall Rating

An excellent little campground with 14 spots, a few are adjacent to others, but mostly they’re spread out more than 100’ apart on the little spit of land. We snagged the last available spot next to the walkway to the dam viewing area. It gave us the best view of the dam, although we did get more walk by’s then other spots and we couldn’t pull our rig closer than 50’ from the firepit. But the setup was fully worth it to have a waterside spot and get a great nights sleep lulled by the best dam noise one could ask for.

Easy access for big rigs. Level campsites with fire pit and picnic tables. Next to the dam and on the water.
