"A campground that also services Boaters. Most boaters are looking for services and have trouble finding them. Things like showers, ice and drinking water. This place can service all of those needs. If you tie up at the end of the blue line at the upper lock for a small fee they’ll allow you to shower. Sell you ice, it’s so close it won’t melt while you walk home with it and it’s cheaper than any others that I saw in town. They will run a hose out to their property line to connect to yours to fill your boat. Fantastic service, really nice people."
"Love this campsite, camp owners are awesome and super friendly. Definitely be back again..."
"Beautiful people, small lot, enjoying our coffee in front of the water!"
