Nice campground but gets kinda noisy

Nice campground in the national recreation area. The roads are a bit steep and narrow but we were able to get a 30’ travel trailer in there without trouble. Access to the lake is great. Electric and fire ring at each site. The first night we were here a family set up nearby and let their dog run…

Pretty good place to stay!

Well, what can I say? We have been here for just about two weeks and it's not all that bad. Yeah, it needs some love and care(and they're working on it as I write) but overall is a good place to stay. Spoke with many of the travelers and most are from neighboring states and love coming here. They…

Quiet and remote

Stayed here in March 2020. My favorite part about this campground was that there were only 8 campsites so it was very quiet and remote. I arrived at 7pm on Friday and snagged the last site. The fire pit had a grate large enough to cook on and I didn’t need to use my extra grate that I keep in my…

Peaceful Stop

Planned on a 2 night stay but added 3 nights to our stay to get out of the way of Ida. Led to site 15 by Keith and Kim the hardworking owners. Beautiful site on the Ohio River. Magnificent sunsets. Sites alternated pull in and back in sharing water and electric pedestals. Lots of space on door…

Good amenities, could use better maintainence

We enjoyed the amenities that came with our stay. There was a late night check in mishap (no one answered, and we were left wandering around to look for space) they did offer us 1/2 off the first night. The lagoon was fun, and we enjoyed it, could use a lil underside cleaning and inflation…

Quiet weekend on the water

We enjoyed the view of the lake all weekend. Cell service for Verizon and AT&T were good enough to work from the camper and T-Mobile was non-existent. Campground hosts were very nice when we interacted with them. The beach area was a plus for us as our dogs love to swim and it is only open to…

Great hidden gem

This is our second visit and we absolutely love it.  Nice shaded lot on the Ohio river.  Right after getting set up, we got to see a big barge go by.  We would definitely recommend this place.

Quiet, comfortable site

We stayed for 2 nights and had a very quiet, comfortable stay. You can see the lake through the trees, and there's a trail down to the shore off the back of the site - looked like a great spot to launch a small canoe of you don't mind hauling it back up the hill afterward. We tent camp and the site…

Keep Moving

I do not recommend this place unless you’re either coming for a one night stay or you work in the area and don’t plan to spend a lot of time there but to sleep. There’s nothing to do there. No picnic tables, no fire pits and not much room between campers. The playground was not something I’d let my…

Overall nice place, but nothing special.

Just spent one night here as we used it as a stopover location for a longer trip. It was an older well maintained park and very functional. There was plenty of room to walk our dogs inside the rv park itself and the bath houses were clean and well kept. There was only one dump station…

Wouldn’t stay here again

Was disappointed in this campground. Put us in a site next to cabins and apartments and full time campers. Also things look a little worn.

Tits

Awesome spot. We were trying to hit garden of the gods. Drove through that campsite and it was packed on a Friday afternoon. We refilled our 7 gal water jug there in the weirdest spin crank pump ive encountered yet. It tasted a bit bleachy, but it's there. Checked out the local camp country tourist…

Plenty of water access!

The lake is just down the road from our campsite and there is a trailhead bathroom right at the boat ramp!

The campsite itself is pretty enclosed, but there is no fire pit or electrical access. It’s pretty simple and honestly it’s a really good set up! The campsite was small and perfect for just…
