Busy due to day use

What could be a great campground only gets three stars due to the amount of day use people and condition they left the main bathroom and showers. They were not too clean, especially the women’s bathroom and showers. The sites are clean and decent size. Very peaceful at night.

Good park close to home

This is not our ideal campground. We usually like to be far from people with minimal neighbors, but living on L I, your options are limited. That said, the sites close to water are nice. They offer more to see and feel a little more like camping. There are sites with electric, water but those fill up fast.

You are a short walk from beach access and kayak launch. There is a playground for kids and clean facilities. I enjoy going here as it is easy for a quick weekend.

Great place to camp

The island sites are the best and most private. The main area is good if you want to go with several groups. These sites are closer and more open. Overall a beautiful and clean park that is located within 20min of good hiking. Facilities are clean and well maintained.

Camper side review

Stayed here for two nights with my popup and was surrounded by large motor homes/RVs. sites had zero privacy and were all pull through. There was water, electric and sewer hookups at each site, but this was an expensive place to ‘camp’. Bathrooms and showers were not really clean, which was surprising because most people used their personal bathroom/shower in their RV. It is close to the beach, but a very small and rocky beach. Overall, I don’t think this was the best place for us.

Small, quiet campground

Woodland valley was a smaller, remote campground. It seemed to be used mostly by hikers who weren’t staying long. Most sites were on the smaller side and about half were fairly private. facilities were clean and in good working order. Great access to the river and hiking trails.

Good clean campground

We just spent six days at site 31 and we really enjoyed our stay. The bathrooms were cleaned two times a day and the park is so well maintained. The sites were a little close and not very private, but if you go during the weekdays, as we did, this won’t be an issue. Weekends the park gets busy as can get a bit loud. The lower sites near the river are good sized and he river ambiance is nice. Biggest negative would be only two showers for the whole campground. 

The staff was great. Very friendly and helpful. Will be visiting again.
