Turkey Creek Campground
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This amazing campground has beautiful views and an excellent staff!! If you want a really nice, clean place to camp, this is it! We love coming here to camp and it's so close to so many beautiful drives you really can't go wrong with Turkey Creek!

This is the place to camp!!!! Great campsites and so peaceful to fall asleep with the sound of the creek gruggling by. The owners are such friendly people and take that extra effort to make this a truly pleasant camping experience. The bathhouse is immaculate and youcan be sure that the peace and quiet of being in the woods won't be lost. The only good thing about leaving is knowing you can come back!!!

If having wifi, electricity, and nice bathrooms are important, this is the place to camp for you. If you want to camp to have some peace and quiet, in a relatively secluded site, with enough actual space to put more than only a 2 man tent, this isn't it. The proprietors were nice enough, and the location was clean, but the sites and tent pads were very small. Combine that with the fact that you have to park at your site, and the creek can be stepped across in most places, it wasn't ideal for us. There were a few sites near the back that were decent enough, but those seem to be reserved for large groups. The owners most likely wanted to cram as many sites as possible into the property, but lost sight of the fact that many people camp to spend some time and enjoy the outdoors, not be crammed up next to strangers.

Room Tip: Get one of the sites near the front (road) of the property, which is unfortunately away from the cr...

Stayed here with about 20 people doing a family/friend weekend . Once it was dark, the kids (about 8 of them) wanted to play hide and seek, but were told they couldn't. Not even 9 pm. Also the walk to the bathroom , up hill, at 3 in the morning is awful !! It's very clean , but not really family friendly . Going to try a different camp ground next time !

This is a gem of a campground. Most all of the sites are along a nice little mountain stream. The bathrooms are extremely nice. They are very clean and all tile. There is a small game room with a pool table. The lake is a short hike and we found a nice place to swim just across the railroad tracks at the end of the trail. I have camped in lots of campgrounds over the years and this is my new favorite. If you are biking on Tsali or going to the NOC this is the place to camp.

I have used this campground for 20 years and have never been disappointed. There are fresh baked goods and fresh brewed coffee in the morning and the no noise after 10 pm policy is enforced. Firewood and ice are always available and the bathrooms/showers are kept clean and in good functional use. Mike and Ramelle will work with you to ensure that you have a great experience!

I used to camp here years ago and recently returned - it had always been nice and clean and the owners friendly. They have since made some additions and renovations. The bathrooms, in particular, are wonderful - well thought out with campers in mind. The sites are roomy and many are suitable for hammocks. The coffee and baked goods at breakfast are awesome!
