We have visited Loud Thunder many times as hikers and kayakers but this was our first time as campers. For our maiden voyage with our new camper we decided to stay close to home and Loud Thunder was the perfect place.
Because of COVID the trails were closed so while normally there are a lot of places to explore most of them were closed while we were there. The boat rentals and Lake George were open though so we decided to rent a small pontoon. This pontoon was very rickety and we did not end up staying out as long as we had planned.
The boat rentals are all on a first come first serve basis so it's the luck of the draw.
The camp site was very nice. Electricity and water hookups. We were in the back and really liked our spot. The campground its self was very quiet and we enjoyed our stay. I'm sure we will be back.
We lucked out and got a last min campsite for 4th of July weekend. Because we didn't plan ahead well we had to take site # 31 which was actually only available because it was canceled that morning. Even though we didn't have a choice it was still a great spot. It was pretty quiet while we were there, a few kids riding bikes but for the most part it was an older population. We could see multiple fire works shows if we walked around the campground with the neighbors across the street putting on a pretty great "amateur" show.
Our cell phone provider is Sprint and we had zero service. The campground is close to Muscatine if you need to make a run but far enough out to feel like you're really camping.
The bath houses were very hot and muggy but they were also very clean. We had a water hook up by us but did not realize that we couldn't use it. Got scolded by the Park Ranger and told it was a no no.
Over all a great stay and I'm positive we will be back.
