Six years ago when BBC opened it was amzing....fast forward to the spring of 2013 and disappointment all around. From the minute you enter the camp ground you can see neglect. The camp sites are overgrown with weeds and ruts and make leveling your camper nearly impossible. The pool area was also over grown with weeds and the pool looked filthy. There is no longer a camp store or an onsite manager. The flower bed around the camp store used to be in award winning condition...not any more. It is a weed bed full of ant hills. The bath rooms are in horrible shape...one of the shower stalls didn't even have a shower curtain...go to the dollar store and buy one for $2! The garbage cans did not get emptied until Sunday morning when everyone was leaving. Also, if you love to use toilet paper bring your own. My wife and I actually took some lysol wipes and clean the toilet seats and counter tops before using the bathroom. The bottom line...if you can tolerate filth and neglect then your all good...But for the price...NOT WORTH IT! Oh yeah the River is still amazing!
