Nice but not much There

There's not much here in terms of amenities and shade.  The toilets are pretty old evident from the screwed on toilet seats.  The campsites don't have very much shade but they are close to the river.  There are picnic tables and metal fire rings with grills for bbqing.

OMG! Campground Nightmare!

My boyfriend reserved this campground online and little did we know what a ummm how shall I say a crap site it was! We arrived and as we pulled in our campsite was directly in front of us and almost in a triangle share site. We had NO room for our tent, canopy and car! The hugs were horrible and everything around us was way overgrown. I know there was suppose to be a creek but never saw it! We kept driving around saying Is this really it?! It was just so depressing and just a shady place. Now when I say shady do not mean like there was shade I meant as we must be getting punk’d! Thankfully there was a KOA we had passed and ended up there and we can’t thank them enough for giving us a great campsite! If I should ever want to produce a super low budget horror movie I would go here. There is not one thing we can say about this campground to even give it a higher rating! If there were negative ratings this site would be on it….Been there, done it, never again!
