I agree with the previous writer that this place is a hidden gem. I would love to give it a 7 or even 8 except for one thing. The electrical service is virtually non-existent. Maximum voltage is about 100 volts which allows you to operate a fan and a light bulb. If you can come and enjoy the view with open windows and no electricity, this is an adequate location. The staff is friendly but they are doing the best with what they have. We camped here in a Motorhome.

September 2010
This campground is in a working riverside marina. You'll actually drive through the boatyard to get to the campground. It's a hidden gem, hardly anyone seems to know about this place. Half the sites are right next to the river, and the other half are just a short distance around the campground loop, so everyone gets a water view. Sites are mostly grassy, with some concrete pads. No sewer hookups and the big disadvantage of this place is no dump station. During Mon-Fri, you can go to the nearby Municipal Water Treatment plant and dump there for free (about 2 miles away). Otherwise you're on your own. There is just one shower stall and two bathrooms (separate male/female) at the office building. This is a bit of a walk from the campground, not convenient. Also, it would be tough to get a clear sky shot for satellite TV. These disadvantages probably help keep the crowds away. When we visited in September we were the only camper on site during our entire week's stay. At night it is very quiet. By day you might hear a little work going on at the boatyard, but nothing awful. Overall, it's a nice spot to stay if you don't mind the minimal plumbing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
