3 Reviews of William Houck Campground
Perfectly awesome

We stayed here May 1st, one night, it was a weekday night so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I start my review with that because we have heard this place can get very busy. They said it has long already been completely (180 sites!) booked for Memorial Day. That being said, we tent camped, it cost about $25. We bought three bags of their kiln dried wood which made for a wonderful and easy fire ($15), the tent sites were perfectly flat with crushed gravel and fire rings. The place was CLEAN as heck, the bathroom/shower were so clean it was like it must have been built last week. I mean seriously in perfect condition, water was hot the sites are not on top of each other and each has its own designated parking area. The surrounding park is seriously gorgeous. You cannot go wrong here, we enjoyed every single second.

A great spot for water lovers

The William Houck Campground offers plenty of on-site resources and spots for weekend visitors or for long-term campers. More than 100 spots available, this place is as popular as ever in the summer, as it is located a short walk from the Cunningham Falls and Lake. Loads of great trails nearby, along with the water and the flowing rapids make for an amazing stay. Weekends can be pretty hectic with crowds, so keep that in mind while planning your stay.

Beauty, tranquility and variety

After our first trip here, we knew it would be a place we wanted to return to, and have done so 2 more times! The scenery everywhere is beautiful. There are trails for all abilities, and are all very well maintained. Take the Falls trail to view Cunningham Falls.Hunting Creek Lake is another beautiful experience the park has to offer, with beach access for swimming, with concessions and a large bathhouse. Also, fishing, boat and canoe, and SUP rentals. Nothing beats a day hiking the trails, going to the lake for a dip and returning to camp for lunch and relaxation. The sites and bathhouses all seem to be well maintained. We have been pleased everytime we go.
