This is a NFS campground on the Black River operated by concessionaire. The campground is about 7 miles off the highway via a blacktop county road, the last mile or so it gets winding and pretty narrow, so don't drive fast on that stretch. My Senior pass garnered a $6 discount off the $20 rate. Water is available in front of the shower house, which could mean having to drive twice around the loop before settling down, unless you have a long hose or have a site next to the one of the 5 spigots scattered throughout the park. There is NO dump station so plan accordingly. Most of the electric sites are up on the high ground, few of those are level - I needed 3 inches of blocks under the drivers side wheels of our 26' TT and had to lower the jack a lot to get it level. The pads are wide enough so you can park alongside your RV; in fact you will probably have to, only a few were very long. The shower and restroom were adequate. If you don't mind spending a little more, there are 2 double sites with electricity at $30 a night closer to the river, although I didn't find any easy access to the river anywhere in the campground; the best access was from a small parking area 1/4 mile away across the bridge, though people with disabilities may find it a difficult walk to the river even from there. There were only 2 other sites occupied during our 3-weekday stay, we never saw a ranger nor any sign of the concessionaire, I just put our money envelope in the can. We had no ATT cell service . We camped at Sutton Bluffs Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Supposed to be popular with off-roaders, with access to several OHV trails from the campground, but some of the trails were closed during 2017 due to flooding, washouts etc.

This campground has recently been revamped. It is near the Black River and a short drive from Johnson's Shut-Ins and Elephant Rock State Parks. Site #29 is very difficult to get into. Few sites are level but all are paved and spacious. Very quiet in October. We will go back to this campground. We camped at Sutton Bluffs Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
