The campground was just okay. We don't plan on returning. We typically camp at state parks, and are used to more spacious sites. The sites at this campground are extremely crowded and close together. Luckily we knew our neighbors since they were family! We watched a family pull in next to us, look at the site and then leave due to the lack of space. If you are a family who likes a nice, level, spacious campsite, this isn't the place for you! The entire campground is hilly. Most sites are on some sort of hill, and substantial hills at that. The camp store was nice. The pool was nice. The bathhouse is old, but it was surprisingly clean. Easy access to Lake Arthur. Canoe and kayak rentals available at very reasonable cost. Overall, campground is pricey for what you get. Also, you have to pay for showers! Women's shower curtains were cut short and men's room didn't have any shower curtains at all. Creepy! Port-a-john's throughout campground to make up for sporadic placement of bath houses. Probably the biggest drawback to this campground is the noise. I-79 is visible from the front of the park and the nighttime noise from interstate traffic can be bothersome. It was hard to fall asleep with the hum of tractor trailers breezing by at 75 miles an hour.

This is one of the better private campgrounds we have camped in. We have camped here once a year for the past three years for their Jeep Camp. The campsites are pretty spacious compared to other private campgrounds. Restrooms are fairly clean. Showers are decent, but do not have private changing areas. Grounds are well maintained with landscaping and seasonal flowers. Camp store is nice. Pizza and ice cream available. Nice pool. Pavilion for park events. Nice staff. Organized events for families. A little pricey compared to other parks in the area, but not bad for what you get. Close to Cook Forest and Clear Creek State Parks.

This is by far our favorite campground to stay at! There is a lot to due in the area. Campground offers level gravel pads, lantern hooks, and spacious sites. We have been staying at this campground for about the past 10 years. We always want to try other places, but always come back to our favorite spot! Bathrooms are older, but staff maintains them to keep them clean. Pets allowed. Next year, they are opening up another loop to allow more pets. We would highly recommend this state park. Always a reliable choice! You can't go wrong by staying here!
