Great Escape

Small campground with the essentials, no frills. For those who like roughing it. Sign says to pay at the local police station- but the police do sometimes swing by and will collect your fee at the campground. I went in Sept-Oct of 2016 & really enjoyed myself. Was a very quiet spot to camp without many campers at the time. Across the river is a small playground in addition to the one at the campground. I am not sure if swimming is safe here, only saw people fishing with waders on.

This is a small municipal campground just outside of town on the banks of Spring River. It is a no frills campground- porta potties that need to be emptied and a big open field with no set campsites. There are a few scattered picnic tables and grills and even few fire rings. But, it’s $5 a night for tents and $10 for RVs, which are separated from each other. There is a boat ramp and some nice fishing spots, but it looks like getting in the water is the preferred method. Across the river there is a local rodeo arena.
