Date of Stay: February, 2010
This park was what other people mentioned, clean, well maintained, small and quiet in a nice setting. The bathrooms and showers were clean and nice. All was well until our 3rd night camping when about one am when some loud, drunken and obscene campers came and set up their tents. They woke up the other tent campers as they set up and continued to drink, use foul language and hoot and holler until the police showed up, then they were quite for about 15 minutes and started up again. They finally went to bed at 3:30am after having a beer bottle throwing competition by chucking their bottles into the river. The following day my wife had a talk with park staff and they supposedly had a talk with the 6-8 campers at the site. The next night all was quite...until about 1 am when the very drunk and very loud campers returned to their campsite from wherever they were. The next day we went to talk to the park ranger and she was out sick, so one of the park volunteers was suppose to talk to them, but only the park ranger could kick the people out so we decided to leave the campground since we had two miserable nights and we were on vacation and didn't want to have another day ruined. I was told by the volunteers that normally this park was quiet and that these problems were rare here. I was also told the same thing by other campers. Up until this incident I would have rated this campground a 9 or 10, my problem now is that it appears that one can come to this park and do whatever they want with no park ranger or staff intervention. The security at the park is also slim to none, so while most of time its nice and quite this is by chance. God forbid there is some rowdy people that show up. The problem was that the noise started so late that the only people that heard it were the other tent campers, and the local police decided to ignore the underage drinking issue which saddened me. We left a day earlier than we were supposed to and were out 20 dollars which is not a big deal and its just the principal. The staff all seemed hard working and nice, we had a bad experience our last two nights, I would consider returning here as our first few days here were awesome.

We were looking for nice quiet campground, where we wouldn't be kept up all night by party people. We found this campground to be very quite, the campground host (whom I think was the owner) was very friendly, helpful and nice. He also made rounds at night which was refreshing. The park is older with mature trees and it is well maintained, it is very clean and the bathrooms and showers were spotless. We were the only tent campers at the park the night we stayed, and the other people who were in RV's seemed friendly. This was not a fancy resort park, the washboard road coming in is not that bad but its not paved, it was a hair dusty, however this in no way bothered us and this campground is exactly what we look for when camping. My only regret is we were only able to stay one night. I would come back again.
