We spent a night here as we continue our northward migration. The park is conveniently located and surrounded by restaurants, etc. Inside the park you feel secluded, and the area is nicely wooded with plenty of shade. Sites are equipped with... Read more

"Nice campground, with easy access and seclusion "

We were here on 5/2/19, as we migrate north to Maine for the summer. This is in a great location, just off I-95, but far enough away that we heard zero road noise. The loudest things in the area are a neighbor’s chickens, though they didn’t bother... Read more

"Wonderful small campground in the forest"

We found this gem on Campendium, and reviews were on target. Its a lovely spot. It’s quiet, the campsites are huge, and there are only seven sites. Each site has a concrete pad for your RV, an area for your tent, and a fire pit with a couple of... Read more

"Badly off-level overgrown sites"

Site 42 is the most off-level site we’ve ever seen, and as full-timers, weve seen a lot. Despite maximizing our ramps, etc. We approached but were unable to achieve level. A first for us. Many sites, especially ours, are overgrown and un-trimmed.... Read more

"Drove through, walked about, decided not to stay"

Sites are very tight indeed. If you are a #VanLife person or have a very short trailer or motor home, you can probably make it work. Sites here with no hookups are $15. There's one site, #14, which has full hookups with 30 amp service for $20. ... Read more
