$19 per night was for a 30 amp electric site on a level gravel pad. We had previously purchased the annual park permit for $30 and the tow vehicle was included in the fee. There are water and vault toilets within this small, 10-site campground. The dump station is located in the Sandhill campground, about three miles from the Llewellyn Johns recreation area campground. There was a picnic table and a campfire ring on our site. If you like walking/hiking/biking, there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. Boating/fishing is also a very popular pastime in the park. The night sky is gorgeous, as are the sunsets. There were many birds—western kingbirds, barn swallows, nighthawks, to name a few—that come out at dusk to swoop and catch insects overhead. The campground is out in the country. The nearest town, Shadehill, is a 12-mile drive where there is a grocery store, post office, and a petrified wood museum/exhibit. Cell phone service on AT&T is two bars of 4G. Verizon data coverage is was 4G LTE so we used our Millenicom Jetpack for Internet access. There was no over-the-air TV. We camped at Llewellyn Johns Recreational Area in a Motorhome.

This is a nice little park south of Lemmon on State Route 73 near Shadehill Reservoir. I had the place all to myself although every spot was reserved for the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Pit toilets were very clean. Nice shade trees with level spots all. Only bad thing was I thought we were next to the local dog pound just on the other side of the trees. The next morning when leaving I drove over there and discovered it was the neighbor's hunting hound dogs imprisoned in a chain link enclosure. The slightest anything set them off baying and howling. One evening of that was enough. We camped at Llewellyn Johns Recreational Area in a Motorhome.
