This campground is mostly occupied by permanent and seasonal campers. Roads are paved but campsites are gravel. Sites are adequate and did require a little leveling. Noise is a big favor here. As others have noted there is a lot of road noise from 340; there is a rail line close; and Eastside Speedway is very close. While we were here there was a lot of target shooting in the back of the campground where the permanent sites are located. And the trash was picked up at 4:49 AM...not one but three Dumpsters! As far as staff is concerned, I can't attest to their status since I only saw one person at check-in during our 4 night stay. They have a nice size field for the kids to play; swings; pool; basketball court and horseshoes. Parents: watch children as speed of vehicles is a favor here.

The owners of this campground are the nicest people! I know others have mentioned the sites not being level; however, we didn't have a problem. The owner will help you get into your site and tell you the best spot. Campground is in the mountains so I didn't expect a paved parking lot. If you have younger children, I would recommend this campground over the Jellystone near by because the Jellystone is split into by a county road.

This park has the potential to be a excellent campground if only a little more effort would be put into it. First of all their on-line registration apparently doesn't work well all the time. I made reservations about a month and a half early online but they apparently "didn't take." Just happened to call a week ahead of time to confirm and they had no record of our online reservation (even though I was sent an email). Per the staff member who answered the phone, "The computer registration hasn't worked right since I started here." Luckily they did have a site available. We camped here during "Spring Break" and it seemed to be very busy. I'm not sure why the store was not stocked very well. In the playground and horseshoe pit areas the ground needs to be fixed so you don't have large holes in the ground. Again, little things make a difference and are not hard to fix. As someone else mentioned, there are a lot of permanent sites but they are well maintained. But they need to keep in mind that if they have too many permanent sites is it really a campground or a mobile home park?? Regarding their rules: the only one that I saw being enforced this week was the 7 mph speed limit. Other rules like washing campers and bringing in firewood from out of state seemed to go unnoticed or they didn't care. The river is very pretty; however, there is a concrete company on the other side of the river that it seems to me the county should regulate and make them clean up (trash and wood palates, etc. are falling in the river). We did drive around to quite a few other campgrounds in the area and most were not very desirable. Seems like a lot of negatives but I do think we would camp here again. Large campsites, friendly folks. Just a little TLC needed.
