I had never been to this site before a friend recommended it to us. I will say that we found it very relaxing and one of the most friendly sites we've been to. The residents were friendly and helpful, it was very nice to be able to buy bait and supplies right on the grounds. We enjoyed getting to know the people there. The grounds were very clean and peaceful and the owner was very nice and helpful. We will visit them again for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was not at all like pictured. We had planned to stay here on our way down the Mississippi River. Everything was run down and in poor condition. The photos do not represent the actual condition of the campground. We were very disappointed and very angry that we went out of our way to find this place. The review comparing this campground to the movie Deliverance is very accurate. We did not stay because of the very poor condition and the awful feeling we got when we drove through the campgrounds. We camped here in a Tent.
When you approach the entrance to this campground you see a laser cut log archway with the name and you think "Wow... that's neat!" But once you pass beneath the archway you can almost hear the Deliverance banjo music and feel the bad-canoe-trip shivers up your spine. This "campground" is probably 50-60% full of old, disgusting, ramshackle campers packed into the spaces like so many tenement sardines. When I asked the campground host if there were spaces available, to his credit he attempted to squeeze me in, but the spot he suggested was next to the restroom building and there would have been no way for me to accommodate my 31' Class C. This place had such an eery, creepy feel to it we just turned around and left. Were I able to give this place a zero, I definitely would. Its surroundings give it a tremendous amount of potential, but the full-timers living there make it completely untenable for anyone looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to stay. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped here in a Motorhome.
