Nice semi-primitive campground. The usual no electrical, no sewer, no water, though there are water faucets located throughout so you aren't far from a faucet. There are good flush toilets also located throughout the campground but there are no showers. Registration said we could pay for a shower at the Mammoth Hot Springs for $3.64 each. There was some noise from the road which wraps around the campground. The noise was mostly from trucks grinding up the hill below the campground then again grinding up the hill above the campground, though the noise wasn't too bad for me. There is no dump station here so if you camp in an RV it's a real bummer to have to haul out over mountain roads with full tanks. I was told by registration that I could go to campgrounds in Gardiner (about 6 miles north) and PAY to dump or I could drive many miles south (over mountain roads, with full tanks) to one of two free dump stations. And a lot of that decision depends on which exit you want to take. You must dry camp obviously so a generator would be nice (which we did not have). But there are definite pluses. This is a nice campground, nice nightly ranger-led programs in the amphitheater, clean and relatively quiet. And we had a small herd of elk cows and calves come right by our camper one morning, nice! I would camp here again.
Very nice campground, very clean, and friendly hosts. Well kept grounds and facilities. They had excellent showers. Pleasant surroundings to be out and walk and watch the birds in the many birdhouses on the property. Wi-Fi was fair, not a very strong signal, usable but barely. No cable TV but this is up in the mountains so I can understand, but perhaps satellite TV service could have been installed? Overall a very nice place, I would stay here again.
We stayed here one night and were glad to get away. When entering there were no signs of where office was at so we just kept driving till we found it. I asked for a pull-thru so I wouldn't have to unhook but the site was much too small so I had to go back and ask permission to use a vacant longer site. But I had a terrible time maneuvering, some very tight turns and once I got into a spot and had to back truck and trailer out (not fun). Entire park is in poor condition with mostly resident (long term) people. Entire park very dirty. WiFi was OK but could not get any signal at all on two different cable connections, finally had to use antenna and got several English-speaking channels. Avoid staying here if possible, there are several nicer parks nearby. I would not stay here again.
I wish I could rate this park higher than 7 but it could be so much better. We stayed here 2 winter(snowbirds) so far and have great friends here from all over so we return here. WiFi is available but not free. You must sign up with separate WiFi vendor and WiFi signal strength is poor even right next to the towers. We used our cell phone data plan as well as the near-by McDonalds free WiFi. I thought the office staff was not well informed and bordered on being rude at times. Some sites are close to I-75 and have lots of traffic noise. Bushnell is a small town in a rural area so sometimes you must drive a good way for some things. On the plus side there are many activities and music jams going on at this park and most other area parks. Overall this park offers a reasonable compromise between monthly price, warmth (in winter), and activities.
This campground would be much better if not for the trains which come by every 20 minutes or so during weekdays (slightly less on weekends) and train horns are very loud and close! Lots of shady sites which would be great in summer. Lakeside sites would be nice also but no cable or WiFi back there. This park has obviously seen better days years ago and has gone down greatly since. Overall I felt a rating of 6 is generous. If we had a better choice of parks in this area I would have stayed elsewhere but we wanted conveniences of WiFi and cable TV for March Madness games.
Beautiful campground, very clean and well maintained, wide campsites and wide spaces between campsites, easy in and out even for big rigs. Not a lot of shade (many trees are young). Lots of trails and wildlife viewing. Highly recommend this campground!
Not 'big-rig' friendly since turns on roads to the campground and in campground are very sharp and winding. Old campground, rather poorly maintained with what appears to be 90% long-term residents. Cable TV did not work and management said the system was being replaced.
Excellent campground, heavily wooded, very clean and well maintained. Has several central shower/restroom buildings that are very nice. Some sites are not very deep so may be a problem if you have a longer rig and only a few are close to level. There are NO water hookups at the sites (though outside faucets are available not too far away at each shower building (just remember to fill your fresh water tank before you come!). Several hiking trails are available. Cave tours were advertised but we didn't look into them. Overall, a beautiful campground, very quiet and peaceful.
We stayed here during the recent heavy rains from Tropical Storm Lee. We were next to the river when it almost flooded our campsite. We were concerned about flooding but decided to stay put. The campground staff were very friendly and helpful and stayed up all night to watch river levels in case it did flood. They told us we could move to any available site if we wanted to move (some campers actually left the campground because of fear of flooding) but we stayed put. We have stayed here several times, they are always improving, adding more concrete pads, etc. However, WiFi is terrible, usually could not get on at all or else connections would drop even when had strong signal. Some sites are packed fairly close together, especially if you extend slides. Overall, a very nice park, clean, VERY quiet yet close to everything.
