  • Quiet and Quaint. This isn't Kensington. Only busy if you are camping and watching freighters. Plenty of hunting opportunities. Biking on old railroad trail. Shooting and archery ranges.
  • The new pistol range is nice. It is a wonky layout, but i love itl!! The shotgun range was fantastic as well.
  • Don't get to go there that much anymore but when the kids were younger they had a blast
  • Clean restrooms and campsites. Offers electric hookup. Water and dump station also available. Friendly staff. One of my favorite places to camp.
  • A busy campground, but quiet. Shady grassy sites with electric hook-up, campfire ring and wood on site for purchase. Fun to watch the freighters moving along the river. Clean restrooms & showers. Close to town and local sites. Be sure to check out Harsens Island for an enjoyable day tour by car or bike!
