Very nice for short time. Passport America rate. No frills camping but safe and clean. Call ahead for price because you register in front of the house at a little stand where you fill in your information, the number of the site you picked, and add the cash payment then drop in a slot. We would stop here again. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

Had a site on the river; quiet and clean. We did not use bathrooms or showers so can not comment. The website said cash only, so we were prepared. The view was beautiful and peaceful. Enjoyed our stay. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.

This is probably a nice campground normally but two issues weighed heavily against it for us. First, the pull through site was so steep we could not level the coach without propping the rear end up to the full extent of the jacks plus about six inches of pads. It was so unstable with that arrangement that we spent three days rolling downhill to the bedroom and climbing back up to the front. Nearby sites appeared to be similar so we could see no point in moving around experimenting. Secondly, the wifi was so slow I nearly fell asleep between the pages. Check in is "do it yourself" where you pick up a map, rules and an envelop at the "house", drive to the site of your choice, fill in the envelop form, insert the required amount of cash and return the envelop to the "house". Not sure what you do if you don't have cash since there is no provision for card numbers, etc. There is a small store in front that might give you cash though. It is quiet and the sites, though mountainous, are quite long for our 67' rv+car trailer and the car itself. We would stay here again if we can find a somewhat gentler sloping site. The rate reflects two days PA and one day regular ($24). We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

We camped here for 4.5 months in the winter and paid a monthly rate. Water did not freeze at the pump. Wi-Fi always worked great. The roads are gravel and some sites might have difficulty leveling. The owner is friendly. He is also a city police officer and drives through the park several times a day so we always felt very safe! Most sites have a fire pit ours did not but we had cedar trees perfect for our dog. There is a nice lake next to the river probably a great place to stay in the summer. We loved our stay here and will stay here again! We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.

The park uses a self-serve approach to check-in which can lead to confusion and a few very rough stretches of interior roads. Some of the gravel sites offer shade; many appear to offer challenges leveling. Water pressure was very low but electric was reliable and Wi-Fi was very good. AT&T phone service was poor in this area and data service was non-existent. We would stay here again. The rate reflects the Passport America discount. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly owner - called on a day Passport America was not supposed to be offered and he said, "It's a slow day; sure, come on in as PA". Picked the closest sites when we arrived which were long - we are 55 ft including tow vehicle and had lots of room, but site was not level - a bit high in the front. Although they had a self-sign in and pay with a few brochures there was no map of the campground. Would stay again - this time just overnight. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.

Passport America Park. Long full hookup sites with 50 Amp service. Beautiful area in park like setting on the river. Sites could have been a little more level and access to the park was a little tricky, but not a problem for us. Would stay here again. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

This campground is located in a beautiful setting along a river and a pond. The sites were large and well maintained. The WiFi was a little spotty depending on the campsite location. On a weekday in September, we had the place virtually to ourselves. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.
