Parks Bluff Campground is huge fields made into a camp ground. They have a noisy section, but definitely is an active place to stay. These sites are nestled up against the most beautiful Black River. You can drive you vehicle right up to the river and play. The river make this worth the camp.
-- The rivers and streams meandering through the park and all the quiet swimming spots they offer-
--Campground is clean and well maintained (it's brand new, so not surprising)
--WiFi is crazy fast-
-The lodge (I'm not normally a"lodge" sort of person, but we stopped in and it was nice to have)
Cons:--Campground has almost no tree cover-- not its fault, because it's a brand new park, but good to be aware of
--Campsites are packed pretty close together, so there's minimal privacy
Echo Bluff is a new park; it opened in 2016. If you're into finding little spots to swim or just hanging out in a gently flowing, crisp, clean river this is the spot. One thing that we noticed is that people tended to go in the water right near the campground, so when we hiked a bit, or even just went behind the lodge, there were PLENTY of places where we were the only ones there.
The trails were well maintained. I normally would've gone for a bike ride, but didn't have a chance to. That said, the roads winding through the hills here looked great. The campground itself is fine. It's not a place you come for the campground, though; the park is what Echo Bluff is all about.
Overall people were quiet and respectful, but we did have a few times at night and early one morning when a couple of people seemed to assume that everyone at the campground wanted to hear"Boot Scoot Boogie" at full volume(incorrect).
So….Come for the park, stay at the campground. Go in the water!!!!
Busy on summer weekends so get there early. River access but not kid swim friendly. You can walk or drive up the road for beach river access thats safer. Felt safe here. Well maintained. Large sites (trees) big rv friendly with easy loop gravel road. No verizon cel service. No utilities at all. Pack it in and out.
This is a really nice spot for tent camping - even though it’s clearly geared towards RV camping. Make sure to book a walk-in campsite if you’re tent camping, otherwise you’ll be in the lot with the RVs (no trees, no privacy etc see first picture). You’ll have to carry your gear to your site, but not too far. Each walk in site is fairly isolated and separate from the other site by trees. Each site has a wood tent pad, picnic table, and fire ring with grate. If you want you could even go to the lodge (walking distance) for a meal and skip the cooking! Book your spot in advance as it seems like they fill up quickly.
Admittedly a little underwhelmed at first glance but we ended up really enjoying our stay. We had a semi-secluded RV spot. Showers and bathrooms are all single stall which is nice, but dated. Access to the river is the best. They have float trips and canoes and kayaks for rent. River is crystal clear though it can get crowded. We found a nice secluded beach on the river and it was great.
