This campground is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. We picked it because it was close to relatives that we were visiting. Other reviews that warn of low hanging trees and hard to back into sites are right on the money. I caught the top of our trailer on a tree leaving the site and ripped our roof (not a good day). We stayed here on a Wednesday and Thursday and the office was never open, though we saw a ranger driving around. You use the honor system to pay for firewood, which was kind of neat. The camp host was very nice and came to check on us while we were setting up. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. These are some of the best bathrooms that we have found at state campgrounds. Hiking trails are nice and the lake dam is worth the walk. The price for this camp site is fair enough through I would be very careful about driving a motor home through here - or anything else you care about for that matter. The low trees and site access drop the rating from what it could be, in my opinion.

We were prepared for something not nearly so nice. This park is about a minute from the interstate but was one of the quietest places that we stayed on our trip. The only other campers appeared to be contractors with very nice fifth wheels or travel trailers. Sites are all grass and we never had much rain but I would think it could get pretty wet in heavy weather, so folks with big rigs might want to keep this in mind. Bathrooms were new and very clean but you have to pay for showers, which seems kind of odd to me given the cost of the camp sites. This and the lack of gravel for the sites is what keeps me from scoring this camp ground as a 10. They could also use another dumpster because the one we used was overflowing. I don't know what Potato Days is but I was told that you don't want to stay here during this time of the year (some time in August I think). There isn't much to do but there was a nice park across the road from this camp ground. The convenience store up in town has diesel and I don't think a class A would have a problem getting in there. There is also a grocery and a couple of churches in town for those who want these services.

As has been said in other reviews, the owners of this park is what sets it apart from others we have stayed at. These two people obviously love what they do and we left feeling that we had two new friends. As great as this campground is, If you are looking for untouched wilderness then you may be a bit more interested in one of the National Park campgrounds, as some of the properties near the campground could use some cleaning up. But once you are in the campground you forget any negative impressions that you got on the drive up. It poured down rain the whole time we were camping but our site stayed high and dry. Bathrooms were cleaned every day and were spotless. The laundry facility is top notch as well. Please keep in mind that there are quite a few horses that camp here as well so don't complain if you smell them from time to time. Noise was never a problem and if anyone was to get loud I seriously doubt that the owners would have any problem asking them to keep it down. We will stay here again on future trips through the area.
