  • This place is a really nice place to visit. It's not expensive and you'll have a lot of fun camping or renting a cabin. There are shower on site and stores available in the area. It's not far from the Coming King Foundation. The cross, statues and plaques are gorgeous.
  • Debbie and Tina are great.. The prices and fees are great..very clean. showers and restrooms are always clean and kept up.. I love going here to camp. You can see Deer, Antelope, Raccoons, Squirrels, swim and fish till your heart is content
  • The trailer campsites are paved so good for campers. I didn't see a lot of ants which is great. The river side is louder than the uphill side. Biggest complaint are the restrooms on the river side. I think locals living in their cars come here to shower and dump their waste and clean their waste buckets in the showers. Too gross...The showers had poo and the ladies RR also had poo on the toilet seats. Essentially anyone can come in so it's a public restroom without constant cleaning. So bring your shower shoes if using the showers and Clorox wipes before using the toilets. We went hiking on the hill side and the gate is kept closed so the rr's were very clean.
  • Best trail system in the area. Non-river side is the hidden gem here. As a bonus the 4-mile paved river trail connects to Louise Hays, Tranquility Island, and the Riverside Nature Center.
  • Such a nice place for a mild hike. The view at the top of the yellow trail is very beautiful as you can see some of the town that sits across the river. The facilities, to include the restroom, were very clean and well kept. I would highly recommend as a place to stay overnight or just for a short day trip.
