Beautiful and peaceful

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.

Peaceful weekday camp

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.

Lovely but smelly?

Lovely little campground. The spot we reserved had been taken but the ranger found us an even nicer spot and delivered our fire wood to us. Solo showers are nice during COVId. Only complaint is the smell of the paper mill that blows in time to time. Smelled very much like sauerkraut off and on.
