Pretty scenery. Kind of crowded though.
My group and I camped in two of the basic sites in Asher Creek campground and we couldn’t get enough of the front-row lake view! The sites closest to the lake are very level, and everyone in the campground is only a short walk from the cleanest park restrooms I’ve ever seen. If you’re like me and are just doing basic tent camping, I’d recommend a pop-up canopy for the table area since there is not a lot of tree cover in those sites. Overall, an excellent place to camp!
The campground was laid out well in the fact that you didn’t feel crowded at all, even when there were lots of campers. We were in site 45 with a 33 ft travel trailer and had plenty of room. Nice walk for our dog and grassy areas also. Showers were clean but nowhere to put toiletries except on the dressing area bench… but that was okay. It was all tiled also. Mosquitoes were the big downfall. Just be prepared. We put up a screen tent as well as having bug spray. Ate at Boyettes too and it was really good.
We camp here a lot and have tried several spots in the South campground. The ones near the lake have views but don't have water access. There is also a pavilion near the lake.
Sites 22, 24, 25, 70 backup to the forest and have lots of room to set up tents, however they are the first to flood and stay wet longer.
The map is pretty good about and shows pictures of the sites. At the time of this review the bathrooms between sites 64 & 66 were closed. The bathrooms and showers near site 23 are bigger and more accessible. The bathrooms and showers near site 4 do have a ramp but it is uneven, the space inside is much smaller and would be difficult to navigate with a wheelchair.
Site 43 has trees on both sides of the pad and, based on comments from another camper, can be difficult to back in a larger camper.
Sites in the mid and upper 40's are also good for tent camping. The cypress trees in the area send roots up and the ground can be lumpy because of them. The campground has lots of gopher holes all over. The mosquitoes are bad and you should take some strong bug spray.
The campgrounds does have drainage issues when it rains and if your forecast predicts rain, you might want to put your tent up on the pad.
They opened a small gift shop this year. The sell worms, and they now rent canoes and kayaks. There is a boat launch near the entrance, but you can't launch anything too wide.
This campground is due for a makeover and I heard that it is in the works.
If you love bird watching or photography this place is a dream; osprey, eagles, herons, egrets, and so many others are everywhere. Pelican's stop here on their migration and I recommend the pontoon tour in October during the festival if you want to see them on the water.
Close doesn't begin to describe the camp sites! Spots are crammed into every conceivable space at any imaginable angle. Some sites are "waterfront" but you can't access the water nor see the sunsets for the reeds and Cyprus trees. Decently level asphalt pads with electric and water.
We had a quiet RV site with electric. Many of the sites also have water but not ours. Shaded area. Lake is more of a swamp with cypress trees, very pretty. Showers dated but clean. They are multiple stalls.
Of note, there is not much around in the way of stores. We managed to find one small grocery store. The town of Cairo is a ghost town but Ft. Defiance is worth seeing.
The good - site was level with 30amp electric. Two shower rooms in Birch loop with plenty of hot water. Beyond that…needs serious work.
The road coming in was a pothole minefield. You simply cannot miss them. Three of the loops were overgrown jungles. Birch loop was mowed at least. Vault toilets only. Advertised beautiful spring by the concrete house was an algae pond.
Site lists a swimming area but it is just a patch of mud beside the boat ramp. Never saw a campground host and there was not a map to be found. You are on your own to find your site.
If there is a dump station, it is very well hidden. The most use seems to be from boaters utilizing the ramp to the Black River. If you like cell signal, there was none.
Paid $36 for one night 30amp site. Waaaayyyy overpriced for services offered. Unless you really want to get away from it all, just keep driving.
