Overall Rating:

Very poorly designed park. Fire pits way too close to the parking - Less than 5 feet! Had to use the one from the empty spot next to us. No pull throughs and the backing in to the spots almost impossible because they are too narrow. Bathroom is nearly a whole city block from the closest campsite. No place to sit while dressing in the shower area. No mirrors at all in the bathroom or shower. It is built to be a storm shelter, but as I said, no where to sit- and seriously, a block to run in dangerous weather? They do have stalls for handicap accessibility - but being so far from the campgrounds it is kind of pointless. This campgrounds is fairly new, and should be much better shape than it is. The views are pretty, has a boat ramp, good fishing and the dam is very close. Nice playground by the bathroom - but who wants to send your kids that far away and out of site from the campgrounds? Only a couple of spots long enough for larger campers and there has always been someone parked in them. You would have to back in, unhook your Tow vehicle and park it in the visitor parking. We have a little SUV and our trailer only 12' and we took up the whole slot. Bad cellular reception. No camp hosts. If you have a problem you are on your own! We camped at Bessman-Kemp Co Park in Alden in a Travel Trailer.
