The camp host/motel manager was very amicable. The road into the campground was composed of gravel needing some grading and low hanging trees. Unfortunately our entrance of bottom scraping and tree branch slapping did not impress us and damaged our RV. We were assigned site 9. The site was grass and gravel with full hook-ups. All other uninhabited sites were grass only. The water at our site was a light rust color and smelled strongly of iron. The campground is located behind the motel on a very green and lush looking hill, making for difficult leveling of our motorhome. Our children (ages 6 and 4 1/2 ) were not interested in the dilapidated playground. In general, the campground was very private and we pretty much had it to ourselves. I would not recommend this campground to any motorhome owner due to the difficulty getting in or out without damage.
Driving into the state park there is a $7 fee for your vehicle in addition to your camping fees. Once past the state park gate you will drive another 3 miles to get to check-in at the campground gate. The park is electric only so remember to fill before you settle in at your site. Water fill and dump stations are located just past the campground check-in on the inside of the park. Electric boxes are shared with two side by side 30 amp outlets that are about 50'- 75' away from motor coach. There are concrete parking bars at the back of each site that prevent you from getting any closer to the electric box. We had to move sites as this distance was too great for our umbilical. (The park does rent extension cords.) We were disappointed by this electrical infrastructure. The showers were one temperature that was a little to warm for my kids and I. The toilets and showers were clean by my standards for a State Park. There are several playgrounds for the kids to enjoy and the park is in a very natural state.
We enjoyed our stay here so much we extended it from 2 days to 5. We stayed here under the 'Tents for Troops" program. The staff members were amicable and the campground well maintained. The road into the campground is paved but bouncy with many branches in need of trimming. (Our rig is very tall at almost max height of 13'4"). Our children enjoyed the weekday activities planned by the staff. We felt very safe with our children riding their bikes to and from the playground without us on their heels. It is a nice place to unwind and relax with family.
The location of this campground is along a river with several sites on the riverbank. We were fortunate to get a riverbank site and it was very peaceful. The sites along the river are narrow with your sewer fitting in the space of your neighbor. We could see how rain may make the river bank sites into muddy fun for departure. The camp hosts are very friendly and give this campground a warm feel. Wi-Fi is available, but only in the recreational center.
This campground is beautifully maintained with super clean showers. We were given a site on the mountainside in the back of the park. It was very nice! The playground and pool were both desired favorites for our 6 year old and 4 year old. My only complaint is the customer service by office staff. Upon check-in the teen in the office was less than helpful and seemed put out by helping me. The lady in the office did not look up or help the boy. I do believe he said no more than 10 words. He did not even tell me our site number. We have stayed at many campgrounds and this is the most unfriendly office environment we have witnessed. Aside from the poor check-in service this campground experience was wonderful.
