Great Stopover

General: We have really come to appreciate US Army Corps of Engineers (CoE) campgrounds. They are affordable (especially for seniors) and generally have decent facilities. Fishermans Corner was just an overnight stop for us since we could not get into our desired campground on a holiday weekend but for$10, it was a great value. Bugs were not too bad when we were there (October) which was surprising as it was so close to the river and still warm. The after-hours check-in procedure was a little confusing. We thought we needed to check in the following morning when the booth was open, however, we were chastised later in the evening by the grumpy “campground fee attendant” for not calling to register (we had reserved and paid online).

Sites/Facilities: Site 40 had an electric hookup site with a generous sized level concrete pad, picnic table, and fire grate. The sites are a little too close together for our liking (our neighbor’s a/c could have been like white noise to some but not me!) Some sites are directly on the water (Sites 8, 9, and 10) plus several more that have a view of the water; these are in the loop to the left of the entrance) and they are the best in my opinion. There are two loops with a bath/shower house centrally located between the two. There is a pit toilet at the end of each loop. 

Bathhouse: The bath/shower house was decent (flush toilets, soap dispensers) and it was clean (although I did not use the shower so cannot comment on that). 

Conclusion: Not too much to do although there is a nearby day-use area. Main con is the road noise, especially in the morning during commute hours. Although the campground is immediately adjacent to train tracks, I only heard one train around 10 am.

  • Beautiful sunsets along the river
  • Sites 1-25 are closer to the river
  • Centrally located bathhouse was clean
  • Nice playground is centrally located between the two loops
  • Vault toilets were also located at the ends of each loop
  • Site 40
  • The sites are "stacked" but a little too close together for our liking. We didn't have neighbors to the east of Site 40.
  • Some sites (8-10) have a direct view of the river
