Loved this camp spot, would come back here again! We had a river spot with water and electric. There was a fire ring and a picnic table as well. It does fill up fast for Friday and Saturday night but we came for one night and booked it the night before for Sunday night. A lot of the campspots are cool but being by the river is so much fun. You can hear it running all night and it is so peaceful. We came mid September and I would assume that coming in the heat of the summer it would be really buggy esp by the river. It was super quiet. We could barely hear anyone and the spots were pretty separated. Would come back here again for a fall weekend!
This campground is in a fantastic location. You are close to downtown Lincoln with Cascade Park and some restaurants and the other way you have trail heads for the Appalachian Trail and many other outdoor activities.

There was one thing that was a little deceiving about the info on the website. My sister and I were hoping to go kayaking and saw on the campground website they rented kayaks. We assumed we would be able to rent them there at the campground and use them there, as we don’t have a car that can transport kayaks. When we got there they referred us to a company down the street that would rent us kayaks and help us find water. Definitely not what we saw on the website. Also, the campsite my sister and I got was considered a “primitive” spot but the only thing that was really primitive about it was that there was no water faucet and you have to cross the main road to get to the bathrooms and showers. Overall it’s a great place, the bathrooms are clean, you can cool down in the river or in there swimming area and they did a great job keeping everything COVID safe.
Stayed for a week in July & can't wait to return next summer. Sites are close to eachother but the cabins are perfect. Loved the river and playground! Staff were awesome :)
Nice campground located in the valley of mountains. Wooded sites but close to your neighbors. We had site 41 & unfortunately we were unable to use the fire pit due to being so close to our 19 foot camper. The owner, Lisa is really nice as we had some issues with visitors popping by unexpectedly but she was understanding. Beautiful campground to get away from it all.
Open to RV’s, has clean cabins, and also quiet riverfront sites towards the back. Has amenities like a small store and little playground across the street. Also a coin operated washer/dryer which was helpful when my son got car sick on the ride! Owners are very nice and accommodating. Self check is fast and easy.
You cannot go wrong. Right on kangamangus highway basically in the mountains. Recommend the sites by the river!
Decent campground with pretty good amenities (camp store, showers, actual flushing toilets). Only disappointment was that the campsites themselves are way closer together than advertised on the pictures on the website. They also have very little trees or cover in between them, which leaves them relatively open and exposed to other sites.
Overall good experience though. We really enjoyed having the river/creek right near to our site to give us some nice white noise. We would stay there again, but might look into some other campgrounds if we had the option.
This campground is very family friendly. It is surrounded on 2 sides by small rivers, the water flowing over the rocks is very relaxing. Sites aren’t too close together. Lots to do nearby.
The new owner is friendly. The location is beautiful. Limited cell service in the area. WiFi at the store only. Camp store is well supplied. Multiple shower/bathhouse/restroom buildings but the one near our site was small and not well lit. Shower stalls could to be longer to allow for dressing after shower. Shower use is $.25 for 5 or 6 minutes, which is fine because the nightly site fees are reasonable. Our site was on the river which was scenic and nice to listen to. River is rocky and shallow, not good for tubing, swimming, etc., we were also very close to the road, which was fine most nights but there was a lot of late Saturday night traffic that was noisy.
The staff was amazing and helpful. The sites were racked and free of rocks and sticks. Located off of a river, you couldn't even hear your neighbor.
