This campground looks like a giant parking lot. The campsites are packed so close together and the only way you can tell which one is yours is by looking for the water/electric hookup and the little number . We paid extra for a site directly on the river. Though it was quite pretty we were across from the national grid utility depot. There were bright floodlights on all night and the utility trucks came and went during the late evening. the lights stayed on all night. There is absolutely no atmosphere in this park. You do not feel like you are camping.trees are in short supply and there is no shrubs etc to give any privacy whatsoever. The beach on the river is rather nice and there are inner tubes to rent if you want to float on the river as well as kayaks. The bathrooms were rather unkempt, lots of pieces of toilet paper on the floor, and the dumpster was overflowing with garbage bags. Firewood was 6 dollars for a small bundle and it was very green and burned poorly. If you get hungry you can walk to the McDonald's fast food restaurant which is literally at the entrance to the campground. there is also an arcade with noisy games if your kids get bored. As we didn't have kids with us we didn't venture in. There is also an in-ground pool, it looked clean from a distance. It was extremely quiet which was a big surprise considering you were packed in like sardines. Lots of kids, many on bikes, and everyone was very friendly. There are other campgrounds we discovered during our stay that are much nicer that are in the Warrensburg area. We will not be returning to Riverview.

I loved this campground, it is just so petty. It is heavily wooded and almost every site is really private. We walked around the park just because it was so lovely. The roads are dirt and gravel but no ruts, and we had no problem backing our 30 ft. motorhome into our site. They have fire rings, but I would have preferred a fireplace of rocks. There are good sized picnic tables at each site. Our site was not very level though so if you don't have levelers your will notice that. . The bathrooms needed a bit of attention. The floors around the shower area were muddy and they ran out of soap and paper towels on Sunday. There are a few facilities throughout the campground,but only two showers per bath so you have to wait which is a drag. There is also a mini golf course and a small lodge that has games in the basement. Both require money. The mini golf is $6 per person and is a big ripoff. WiFi is not available at the campsite,so you must bring your laptop to the office area. Firewood is available, around $5 bundle and it was nice and dry. There is no pool or lake but Sheeps Head Lake is very close by and was a wonderful place to swim. We took our bikes as the Cape Cod Rail Trail is fabulous and close by and easy to access. The campground staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Good camp store. We rented a car one day and it was delivered right to the campground. The campground was very quiet and pet friendly. They also have a dog day care facilty if you want to leave the campground and don't bring your dog. It is very reasonable. We didn't use this as they don't require proof of Kennel Cough vaccination. We are looking forward to returning to this campground again in the fall.
