We took the road down a narrow road and across a small bridge into the campground. We learned later that the road across the dam was a much better way to enter the park. So better signage would be appreciated. We camped here on a Saturday night. Unfortunately the camp host was apparently not there and one of the camp sites had a group of people who were up all night partying. It was quite noisy and annoying to many of the other campers. We had no one to address the problem to. We camped at Damsite - Fall River Lake COE in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in the east side Campground in site 19. It has a great view of the dam, and if they are letting out water from the 7 spillways, you are in for a treat. The camp host said the spillways were only open 15%, and it was spectacular. The hosts (very nice people) take a lot of pride in their campground, they work hard keeping it great, and it shows. The trees are huge, the sites are level, and the shower house is clean. This is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. I stayed here in a pull behind motorcycle trailer. If you come in from the west side, you first go through the east campground (no sewer), and go over an old bridge to the east campground. The old bridge has angular reinforcement pieces overhead on each side, so if you have a tall rig, you need to stay in the center of the bridge. The bridge is old, and I couldn't see any damage from someone hitting the reinforcement, so, don't be the first! We camped at Damsite - Fall River Lake COE in a Tent Trailer.

Rate is based on national senior discount pass. Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful park settings we have ever seen. Would have given it a 10 if they provided Wi-Fi. As it is such a remote location, it really should be provided. Very clean park at the foot of the Fall River Lake dam. There are 2 separate camping areas separated by a small bridge. There is a 9 ton limit on the bridge, so best to check with the project office as to which way you should come into the park (if you’re a big rig). You might have to travel about 1 mile on hard packed dirt road to get to FHU area. On one side is the full hook up sites with 50 amp; the other is mostly 30Amp / water and in some cases just water. Electric stays on, stead;, water pressure is good. Nice bathhouse on FHU side. Everything cared for by visible and friendly volunteer camp hosts. They are very knowledgeable about the park and surrnouding area. Wi-Fi is very iffy here. Our Verizon card service was off and on. Phone service is normally OK, but it also had its moments. No over the air TV available at all; don’t know about satellite but park is heavily wooded with trees. There is a small rally area, with a covered pavilion which would be fine for small gatherings. Each site has a prep table, picnic table, grill and fire ring. Some sites are “doubles” which are nice and wide. Rules appear to be enforced, and there are 2 playgrounds within the park. There is fishing from the bank of river at the dam without leaving park. Boat launch is nearby. For peace, quiet, relaxing, and bird watching this park cannot be beat. We will visit here again. We camped at Damsite - Fall River Lake COE in a Motorhome.

This is a great COE campground and the fee reflects my "old person card" discount. Lots of shady sites to choose from and the restrooms and showers were great! Quiet and nice. There are 2 other COE campgrounds on the lake and don't know about them. I didn't feel like driving across the dam for one of them so picked the below dam one. You'll like it.

There are 2 campgrounds below the dam. We stayed on the east side, and it does have 50 amps and sewer. There is a bridge that crosses the river, and it DOES NOT support big rigs. If you are staying on the east side call the phone number given and get directions since there is no signage. We were in site 21 and had no problem getting our roof top satellite to work, although some sites were pretty shaded. I called recreation.gov to make our reservations and was able to use our Senior Pass and get a discount. Don't think you can do this if you go on-line. We were just passing through and only stayed one night, but we would stay here again. We camped at Damsite - Fall River Lake COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely Corps of Engineer park. Rate reflects Golden Age discount. We stayed in the loop below the dam. Several other loops were closed for the season. Kind of off the beaten track and not convenient to any services, but good place to get away from it all. Fairly heavily treed, but we were able to get satellite reception at our site. We would definitely return. We camped at Damsite - Fall River Lake COE in a Fifth Wheel.
