Pretty and close to town

This used to be open camping in a field but they have recently fenced it in, leaving just 8 camping spots, fairly close together. This is a popular place with full-time nomads. We came on a Thursday morning in late September and there were only two spots left. The river is beautiful, and only…

First campground in the canyon

Great trails and a beautiful river. The double site in the back is my favorite (except the abandoned camper across the road). Very wooded. Campsites have firepit and picnic tables. Water source but no water hookups. Vault toilets were clean and looked new. 

If this campground is full, continue…

Great location

Great location! Across the road is the Wind Caves Trailhead. Just down the road is the Crimson Trail Head. Liked this campground because it was quiet and intimate. 

Mosquitos can be bad so be prepared for that. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table. Looks like very soon they will be taking…

Small campground ⛺️

Private campground close to the river. A good place to try out some fishing.

Each site had a fire pit, picnic table, and plenty of shade. The campground does have bathrooms and running water. Close to many trailheads, the only negative is that sometimes it can be loud due to traffic.

First come, first serve!

Great area and very clean. The noise from the road isn't very noticeable as you sit along a beautiful creek. It's super relaxing and very afforable! 

Vault toilets, no water but lots of shade. Each site has a picnic table, tent, and fire pits. Dumpster available when leaving the campground. I…

Great alternative to camping in town

Loved the peacefulness of this campground. 

Way fewer people and way more remote than in town camping. Each campsite has a fire pit and a picnic table. There’s our bathroom area as well as water access. Loved how wooded and private it seemed. Short drive into town or access water. 

In my opinion,…

Not as busy as the other campgrounds in town

Smaller in size and way less amenities than the other KOA but way more quiet. If you’re looking to have a more peaceful stay, this is your place. Further away from the lake.

Lava hot springs

The Lava pools are amazing and the town is very charming and walkable options. They have canoeing, rubber tubes, evokes, vespas and four wheelers available. The campsite is very kids friendly during summer months.

Not What We Were Expecting

The address we put into our GPS took us to the Marina so we drove further along the lake to Rendezvous Beach area where we checked in at the gate house with no problems. We then proceeded to the Birch campground(CG) FHU site 55, which was a pull through. The CG map shows there are 4 CGs(Willow,…

All by yourself along the road.

We stayed in the campsite overlooking the lake and accross the road. There are about 7 campsites all with metal pole building type shelters and picnic tables. Each site also provides a fire ring. One of the downsides to the campground is the proximity to the road. There was a number of loud…

Excellent facility for your money

Straight up. The ONLY thing stopping me from giving this place 5 stars is the lack of trees at the sites. If it were July, this place would be hot without shade. Full hookups, WiFi, Dog park close to town. Great staff. Just need more trees!

Overnight Stop

This campground was convenient to come in late and leave early. We called ahead and they were very accommodating. Manager gave us an end sight we could pull in, stay hooked up, went to bed, got up early and headed out.

Beautiful small campground

Really pretty campground. Right on the river, within walking distance from the hot springs and downtown area. Sites are all pull in or back in- which was fine even in our 36ft Class A. The sites are tight, but we were sharing the next site with family so it was fine. Lots of rules but easy to…
