Offers several small little ponds. A little hike trail over the river. We love this campground for short getaways. Has showers and a small swimming hole. Has a dump station also.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park but very dirty

We've stayed here twice this summer and both times the campsites have been filthy. The first time, we had to dig the garbage and ashes out of the fire pit before we could cook our dinner. When I say garbage, it was partially burnt trash and beer cans, filled to the rim of the pit. Cigarette butts were thrown every where and trash was all over the site. This past weekend on a different site we still had to deal with the cigarette butt and litter issue, but added dog poop. It's not very much fun to go camping when you have to patrol your site before you can use it. I will give them an A+ on the restroom and bath house. They were very clean and stocked.

We stayed here in a Popup Trailer.
