American Wilderness Campground & Event Center
Reviewed 11 June 2013

We picked this campground as our very first family camping trip. We have a 5yr old and an 18month old, so we wanted a place with activities for children. Our kids had a blast! Hayride, gem mining, arcade, crafts, and a really great mini-beach. The weather kind of stunk, but we still managed to spend a few hours swimming. Super friendly staff and a really relaxed environment. My only complaint is the restrooms near our campsite were basically outhouses. No sink or running water. We were camping in a pop-up, so we had no choice but to use them. There are more modern bathhouses up near the front of the park, but that required us to drive. Not the end of the world, but it's the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars. If you have a camper with a toilet/shower, it's a non-issue and I highly recommend you stay at this great campground.

Very scenic, beautiful, and appealing. Lots of activites and clean facilities. The log cabin store is overly impressive. The store has everything you need from camping items, groceries, souvenirs, candy, firewood and etc. Great fishing and swimming. Will go back again.
