This rustic public park is located about four or so country miles off of US 49. Well marked on US 49, smaller signs lead to the park. Roads are narrow and some turns can be sharp, thus my questionable review on big rig access. However, there is little traffic, and there were 5ths in the park. We arrived late, set up in the dark. Morning light revealed an open lawn pine tree setting near a lake. Apparently, all sites are FHU. Utilities were fine. PVC sewer connects come out of the ground at a 30 degree angle, making the connect with the hose at risk of causing a spill. Site pads were chopped up by a ditch witch when electrical was upgraded, leaving unpaved trenches across the pad. Not all sites were level by any means, some had steep dropoffs to the picnic table. Primitive dump station was a PVC pipe, a screw on cap, and a potable hose connect about 20 feet away with no hose, all on bare ground. Never saw that before. Bath house doors propped open all night with the lights on, which attracted a large number of mid-summer insects, thus the unclean bathroom rating. Small, insignificant swing set for kids. An off road bicycle trail is available. CSpire phone was 4 bar 3G. DTV scanning picked up 40 channels. Manager was met at the entry gate in the morning, friendly fellow. Only 5 campers in the park, including us. Appears to be primarily a weekend local fishing spot. Overall, a very rustic feel with some significant site upgrades needed to the pavement and leveling. The high ratings by previous reviewers drew us to the park, but I can rank this CG barely average with a 4 compared to other high scoring locations. This is no 8-10. When in the area again, we would opt for someplace else, probably over to Bassfield. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is five miles off of 49. It is very quiet and peaceful with 28 sites. They have just finished up grading the electrical system. Lots of trees and plenty of space between sites. The pads are blacktop, some do need attention. They are in the middle of adding more sewer hook ups, so all most all site now have this. The road in can be narrow at times, but passable. The park people we dealt with were first class. This park is not used a lot, seems lost to the traveling RV'er. We were here this Labor day week end and there were only three of us in the entire park. The bad is we had no cell service, but that was good in a way. We will be back. Should have wonderful fall colors and spring colors here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this quiet, rural County (or State, not sure which) Park. The price quoted was based on Passport America rate. This park also had laundry facilities, which is rare in municipal parks (we've found). Lovely walking trails and a lovely huge large. The only negative was we were not able to get satellite reception because of all the gorgeous trees. We would most definitely return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My rating is not just for the park, but for the people that run the park. We were running from Hurricane Gustav in Louisiana. We arrived at this campground at 3am and were welcomed with an honor box that we happily left our personal information. We were able to get a few hours sleep and once we talked to personnel and had to evacuate more North. We were wished good luck and prayers and were told we didn't owe them a dime. Thanks so much Dry Creek for your hospitality. Their last words were, "We hope to see you again!" Yes, you will! We didn't get to enjoy the lake and the quiet shady area we were in, but for a very limited time. There is a day use area that we saw a sign for and it is far and away from hustle and bustle which we love for our (4) children. We will visit again and stay to enjoy!! Thanks again!
