About River Road Park

Set on the banks of a calming river, just below the entertaining Clearwater Lake lies River Road Park, known as a jolly ol' place to camp.

The beautiful area is enhanced each spring by flowering shrubs and trees like the redbud, hawthorn, dogwood and wild plum. And bald eagles stay year-round and are known to nest near the lake.

The lake and river below provide excellent fishing, swimming and canoeing.

Held our family reunions here for many years!

Beautiful view of the lake! The spill way is great to walk around and fish from! Fishing here is great! There are several play areas for the kids to enjoy!

First to Review
Nice quiet campground

River Road is a quiet, safe little campground with amenities, fishing, boating, kayaking, easily accessible. Showers, bathrooms, electric and water hookup, dump station. A friendly atmosphere with quick, over the hill, access to Clearwater Lake too. Shaded lots are plenty but get snatched up. Reservations (4 days in advance) and first come for available spots. Cell reception is spotty but there. TV reception won't happen. Fire pits, with grill grates and concrete tables. Fish the spillway or the down river for catfish, perch and bass. Kayak from the campground down to Kempers Corner and put out and drive back. Head over the hill to Clearwater Lake to swim and fish too. Good campground!
