A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
Creekside Campground was built beside a submarine bridge near the 1817 Whissen Mill site. In the early 1800’s, a dam was constructed on Stoney Creek, providing power for a sawmill, carding machine and a boring mill for a rifle factory.
During the Civil War, Edinburg was a strategic point because of its location along the Valley Pike, near railways and the creek, which was used to ship iron for the Southern troops. Today, Edinburg remains a quaint town where visitors can explore and enjoy many sites. Regular activities are just walking distance from the campground.
I gave this campground 5 stars because it is super convenient to I81, the staff is wonderful, my tent spot was right on the creek, the bathrooms are immaculate with hot water showers, and they allow dogs. The only caveat is there is a small local road that winds around the primitive sites but traffic is pretty light so it didn’t really bother me. The RV sites seemed pretty tight and they fill up on the weekends. I was the only tent camping that night so I had the area mostly to myself. Nice area with a quaint town to explore if you’re touring around.
Stopped over for a night. Very wet and muddy, mostly all gravel and dirt. Sites were pretty tight.
Staff was nice and pleasant and accommodating. Close to interstate 81 so it was convenient.
The spaces at this campground are pretty tight. Not much room for activities other than sitting by a fire. Getting in and out on a weekend is pretty difficult too. With that being said, the area is beautiful and the staff is great. It’s very quiet and relaxing.
