Freeway Noise Drove me Bonkers

We stayed in the F loop for 3 nights midweek in late April and did not have a problem finding a spot. There were plenty of open spaces, and we moved after the first night to the other side of F loop in order to get away from the freeway noise. You can hear the noise from the whole campground, but the sites along the freeway are SO LOUD, and it did not slow down at night. We moved to a site that backed up to the Greenway and the noise was muffled enough and much more tolerable. 

Campground is broken into several loops, and some are closed to camping at this time. Tent campers can stay in hookup sites but will still pay the full fee. Tent/ non-hookup loop is closed at this time. When we stayed here in April 2021 the only loops open were B, C, and F. Walkup sites are available that day after 10:30 or 11am if not already reserved. Can stay in those sites one night at a time. If you are staying multiple days and want to be sure you don’t lose your spot to an online reserver then you need to pay the $8 reservation fee and book it online, or make friends with a ranger and see if they will block off the spot for you online so nobody else reserves it. The rangers make so many rounds through this park! We have never seen the fee box checked so often, nor so many different rangers driving through the loop multiple times a day. 

The campground is right on the Greenway bike trail, a beautiful trail along the river that goes through nearby towns. We weren’t able to find a path to actually go down to the water though, other than the boat ramp at the campground entrance. 

We heard from several people that the clientele at this campground can pose problems, and while we did see a few campers who look like they might be long term-ers (vehicles that looked like they had seen better days, settled in with lots of stuff, loud music), the majority of people we saw looked like your average friendly quiet happy camper. 

Free warm showers and flush toilets (open at this time). In the women’s shower in F loop, the first stall closest to the door seemed to get the warmest, though it never really got hot. 

Each site has a picnic table and metal fire ring, and there is firewood available for sale. There are also horseshoe pits (but no horseshoes) and 2 (yes, two) disc golf stations. We paid $28/night for a site with water and electric. 

There is a dump station and potable water on the way out. There are trash dumpsters here but no recycling bins. Good cell service.
