“Nice Private Campground but Read the Fee Policy Cafefully”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

This is a private campground. It is well maintained. Most of the river sites are lovely. The bathrooms are very clean. The staff is friendly. My one comment is that the prices are deceptive. You really have to read carefully. Sites start at $30 and go up to $45 depending on your location and the amount of amenities. This is for two people only. Each additional person per night will cost you. You can only have five people per site. So, if you have 5 adults that $30 site becomes $45 per night. Weekends have a minimum stay of two nights. The website says three nights for holidays, but we stayed over Labor Day and we had to book five nights. They have wiFi but its weak- just enough to check your email.

Just one additional comment of note. There is a sign on the internal gate that says something to the effect that this business was founded without government assistance so Obama can kiss my A_ _

Your politics, your choice.

Room Tip: River sites on the outer loop, plus river sites #67 and higher are beautiful

Reviewed 19 September 2012

We arrived at Camp James having wandered next door to the other RV site which is where we landed at first. We had a small 22ft RV, but there was no wi-fi which we needed at the time so the guy in the office said to go next door to Camp James. We were very nicely surprised when we got there, they had what we needed, and it was cheaper anyway. Very well managed although they're looking for a full time couple to take it over. You will not be dissappointed by this excellent facility, near the supermarket and the BBQ restaurant that was unfortunately shut when we went there.
