City dweller, tent camping while missing my bed.

Great large size park with lots of camping spots

This is a very large (160 spot) campground with RV hookup and tent sites. There’s a great day use area as well. Bathrooms are clean and showers are available. Great place to stay. Just read all the other reviews.

Crowded, not private, overused

I wouldn’t really recommend this campground. Drive slightly farther and stay in a more private better campground.

Pros: Close to Eugene Waterfront sites Nice facilities and bathrooms

Cons: Very little room between spots Not very woodsy Feels like RV park SO MANY barking dogs
Lots of other people around Nice fire pits and tables at each site Farm across the street has 05:30 am rooster Busy road a few feet from edge of campground.

If you’re looking for a nice private get away don’t stay here. If you want to feel like you’re in the woods don’t stay here. If you want peace and quiet don’t stay here. If you like staying at an RV park style sight. Stay here.

Great campsite, very busy, amazing lake

Review: This is a great campground. We went on a Tuesday and found the only available spot. Many people came in looking for spots. Make sure to reserve a spot ahead of time. Campsite: Campsite had everything you need. Picnic table, tent site, and fire pit. Sites on the lake looked great but we couldn’t find an open one. Lake: Beautiful lake. Really worth the drive. Go to the Clear Lake lodge and rent a boat if you don’t have one (non motorized). It was well worth the 22$. Fishing is great too, stocked lake lots of trout. Overall: Wonderful experience, plan ahead, reserve a spot and you’ll have a great time.

Pros and Cons

We originally booked a reserved site at the campground. These slots are all in the center of the campground. The spot was nice but located about 200 ft from riverfront first come first serve sites so we packed up and moved there. Site manager said paying for these was different and we had to pay again. That sucks. Don’t reserve a site here. Pros: Our site was great with a trail down to the river and a rocky beach. Fire pit, table, tent site. It had all the standards. We were lucky to have a fresh water station across the road from us. Bathrooms were adequate. Cons: The train tracks are literally across the river. Maybe 200 ft away. The train runs all day and sadly all night. If you fall asleep easily to the sound of a train horn and train cars along a track then you’ll love it here. If you sleep lightly or generally dislike train sounds, good luck sleeping. Our “neighbors” told us they had moved to the river site because at the other end of the campground road noise was louder than the all night train noise. Summary:

If you stay here it will be beautiful and the river is great but might want to bring earplugs. Fortunately you won’t need to bring your sounds of the train yard sleeping CD with you to lull you asleep at night.
