I don't have a lot to say about this review. I caught a bad case of a stomach virus on Thursday before that landed me in the emergency room getting 2 liters of fluids for the first time in my life. Needless to say, we spent most of the weekend sleeping and staring at the river, I just didn't feel like doing much else. This is a prime piece of property and I wouldn't be surprised if they redevelop it at some point.
The facilities that we got to see looked clean and well cared for, the staff interactions were all pleasant.
They use a key-card for the gate, so it is a controlled facility, so if you have friends or guests coming by, that is something you will have to arrange.
There are a fair few more permanent campers here than the website lets on, but most of them are well-maintained and not in 'prime' areas (IE Not near the river). The view from the campsite was fantastic, and we had an open spot on either side of us so we had some space.
*The 'maybe' comes from crowding. If we had campers on either side of us, it would have been a much less pleasant stay. The sites are TIGHT. If you were all squeezed in there like sardines, I don't think we would have cared to stay, or certainly not stay again.
Another negative, and I didn't get a chance to look if other sites were like ours, is that the sewer drain is about 6 inches out of the ground, which means you get to play the 'milk the sewer hose' game when you're packing up. It doesn't bother me all that much, but it does have me looking for a taller set of hose standoffs to travel with.
Yep, site to our left, sticking way out of the ground.
Our mutt isn't technically on our site, but we had no neighbors and most people treat that area by the river as more of a community space than part of an assigned campsite.
