Traveling with my cats

Great spot for a few nights

The camping spots are in a park right off the main road, however they are tucked all the way around back offering surprisingly private camping.

There are 4 spots with electric, 3 of which are paved. There are also 4 tent sites. 2 water spigots shared by the 4 electric sites. No sewer. Picnic tables at each site.

The downtown area is a short walk and has some great dining options.


Campground is well kept. Spaces are fairly close together, not much privacy. Remodeled bathroom/showers. Showers have no benches or hooks or anything. You have to pile your clean clothes on the floor, not even a hook to hang your towel. This is a great campground to stay at if you are visiting the amusement park, other than that not much to do.

Nice state park

The campground at this state park is very well maintained. Multiple electric site are available to reserve, along with a handful that are first come-first serve. They also have a bunch of tent sites as well. Pit toilets and a modern showrhouse. Drinking water is available throughout the campground. Most sites are level with at least partial shade. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. The campground is clean and quiet. Gets busy on the summer weekends, but very quiet during the week. There is a beach to swim, and great fishing in the lake.

Camping on river

This area has access to the shores of the current river. No campsites, just the open rocky shores. You can park right on the shores and set up camp. Beware! The gravel settles if wet and many trailers and campers have gotten stuck here. 4wd is recommended. While their are no amenities, the location is beautiful. Very secluded

NEED 4wd

I was able to get into this area on foot, but it is surrounded by private property. It is accessible with a 4wd vehicle with decent ground clearance, or on horseback. This area is has dispersed camping.


Small lake with a handful of primitive campsites. Most sites could accommodate a small motorhome or trailer. Fairly level spots. There are bathrooms, but no other facilities. The lake is beautiful, crystal clear! Great spot for fisherman! Swimming is allowed. No cost to stay, first come-first serve. 14day limit.


This park has something for everyone. They have primitive tent sites, electric only, electric+water, and fhu. They also have cabins for rent. All very reasonably priced. Most of the sites are nice and shady and level. A bathhouse with showers. A stone lodge for large parties. There is a playground, a few nice hiking trails, and a lake with a nice sandy beach. Almost empty during the week, but very busy on summer weekends. Hiking,fishing, swimming, kayaking,bird watching. There are many things to keep you busy here.

Good for fishing

10 RV pads in a gravel parking lot at the city boat ramp. Electric and water. No showers or bathrooms. No shade. 15/night as of 7/20. Might be a good spot to camp with your boat, but not much to do other than that, although the sunsets are beautiful and it's neat to watch the barges.

Great Boating/Fishing

Well kept campground on a lake. Spots are all on grass. Most are level. Lots of shady spots. Picnic table and fire ring. Seems like most of the sites are seasonal campers. Very quiet for how many campers are here. Restrooms and hot showers, fairly clean. This would be lots of fun for boaters. Rates were $20/night w/electric 7/20

Small 30 site campground

This a small campground right on citizens lake. The lake is small, but good fishing! The sites are all FHU, level, and well maintained. The campground is in town, so groceries, etc are a mile away. You get some traffic noise from the highway, but overall a nice spot to stay.

Quiet spot on the river

I'll start by saying this isn't the most glamorous campground. There isn't much going on in the area. However, the campground is kept clean. Restrooms and showers are clean. About 20 riverside pads are right on the river, 15-20ft from the water. There are another 20-30 sites (non waterfront). The sites are fairly level, with good space between them. $17/night with water and electric, a great deal.


Great area. Several campgrounds in the preserve, from hook ups to primitive. Sites spaced nicely, with picnic tables and fire rings. Bathroom/showers are clean.
There is so much to do here. They have several maintained trails. They rent kayaks, canoes, Jon boats, even pontoon boats so you can go out on Lake George. They sell fishing tackle and bait at the office, along with powerade, soda, etc. Walmart, Lowes, food, gas, etc is all 5 miles down the road. I came in on a Monday and more than half of the 28 sites were available in white oak campground. It is very quiet, all you really here is nature.
Overall excellent value as it's $22/night and there is so much to do.

Nice spot on the Mississippi

This campground is quite nice for the cost. Sites have decent spacing, and during the week it seems to be only 20% full. Bathrooms with showers. Some road noise, but overall a great spot to fishing or just relax.

Nice campground/unsanitary facilities

This campground is OK. Good for families. There are over a hundred sites, some fhu,some just electric, some primitive. It's very clean and well mantained, other than the restrooms. I've been here for 3 days and have yet to see someone clean them! But at $24 for basic site with electric it is what it is. It's pretty much right next to town, but you'd never know it once you're in the campground.

Space for tents all the way up to big rigs. Campground is on the lake. Free entry to the water park if you are camping!

Nice but overpriced

30 for electric, 15 for non. The campground is nice, but others in the area are half the cost.

Its a campground

It's a nice campground in the conservation area. Electric sites are $18, they also offer non electric. It's right near a boat ramp. Some shady people here when I was, but conservation police were on it immediately!


Not very private, but directly on the river. A great spot to stay at for the price if you are traveling the area.


Lots to do here in the middle of nowhere! It's a county park, so you have basketball courts, soccer field, disc golf course, and a beautiful reservoir. Showers and restrooms. Electric at sites


Small little pond with 2 primitive campsites. It's very quiet and peaceful. Some signs of litter, but mostly clean. Saw a few deer during my stay. No facilities, pack in-pack out. 1/2 mile gravel road leads to sites. Should be accessible by cars, vans, and small motorhomes/trailers.

Nice family campground

This is a great spot for families. The sites are pretty close together,but still offer some privacy. They have electric sites for $22 and primitive for $12. Very difficult to get an electric site in the summer, especially on weekends.
