This campground has better facilities than Brush Creek or Limestone campgrounds, but we found it to be less scenic because it has fewer trees throughout the campground. The camping experience seems to be variable depending on which site area you get - the ones by the river are larger and feel more private, because there is more space between sites.
Upsides are that this site has a campground host (who was very friendly) and running water. There are vault toilets - cleanest we found in the surrounding areas. Both trash and recycling collection bins are available (not the case for nearby day use areas or dispersed camping). Each site has its own campfire ring and picnic table.Single sites are $28/night, doubles sites are $56/night. This campground is very close to a store for supplies and to McNally's Lodge and Hamburger Restaurant. Dogs are allowed everywhere as long as they are on a leash.
Activities in the area:
- hike the 7 teacups trail or go canyoneering
- White water tubing/rafting/kayaking
Fairview is a great site if you just want a place to put your tent for when you are heading out for the day. There is little shade and the water is moving too fast to take a dip in the water. The trailer park next door frequently lets their dogs out of the yard and they roam around the sites covered in fleas. The camp hosts are very friendly and the bathrooms are kept up pretty well. The campground leads right into packsaddle trail which is cool for a nice challenging hike to a pretty awesome cave.
