Horseshoe Bend Marina is truly a hidden gem! The campground is under new management, and they are the most gracious and friendly people ever!
The campground has rv sites, tent sites, and glamping tents, which are large canvas tents with beds and swanky furniture in them. We stayed in glamping tent #17, and let me tell ya, the bed in there was so comfortable, I’m purchasing that mattress for my home! The view from every campsite is amazing, but we had a front rower seats! Every campsite has a nice fire pit too. They only allow one car per site, so plan accordingly.
The bathhouse was functional, but really only one person can be in there at a time, even with two toilets, as one is not enclosed. There’s only one shower in there. There were restrooms at the marina, which was close by.
They have a game room tent with ping pong, cornhole, jenga, etc. and they host a movie night sometimes! They also had an inflatable water slide during the day. The property sits right on the water, and it’s perfect for kayaking! You can paddle both directions with ease, and there are several waterfalls nearby, also Rock Island State Park is about 1.5 miles by water. The boat traffic is minimal so paddling is easy.
The store at the marina is stocked with everything you need, ice, beer, snacks, and they will even deliver them to your site! However, the campground is off the beaten path, so stock up before you get there!
We LOVE Horseshoe Bend Marina, and can’t wait to return!
