Date of Stay:
July, 2007 -
This review is in response to the previous review. We are frequent campers at River Bend and hope to become seasonal very soon. The seasonal waiting list is long as well it should be for this wonderful campground. The last review mentioned that the seasonal sites are dirty and rundown, are you sure you were at River Bend? I can think of at least 5 or 6 sites off the top of my head that are absolutely gorgeous well maintained sites. The bathrooms here are very clean, I have seen the staff cleaning them numerous times during the day. Are they new? No. Dirty? Not even close. The reason we decided to start camping here in the first place was due to the amount of activities they offer for not only kids but adults as well. There is definitely not a charge for all activities, the "extra" activities there may be a nominal fee. I challenge you to find a park that does not charge for any of their activities. The entrance I do agree is not a straight shot, but if you take it slow and follow the sweep of the road it is not a problem. I do it several times a year with my 35' motorhome and have no difficulties. River Bend has the same rules that most parks do, they even make you read and sign the pool rules when you check in. The staff are there to keep the park in check and make sure that everyone is having a good time, if a camper wants to have a few drinks I don't think it is up to the staff to monitor them. The security personnel do a great job making sure the people in the park are safe and secure. The store is not unlike most convenience stores, so the prices, I think, are not any different from my local Cumberland Farms. Plus its a great place to socialize and get to know other campers. I plan on many more years of camping at River Bend and other campers should go there and see for yourselves how wonderful it truly is. We camped at River Bend Campground in a Motorhome.
