Spring Break Family Camping
Absolutely loved the spot! Brought the kids and the pug and everyone enjoyed themselves. Easy enough location while feeling secluded from the outside world. Can’t wait to come when it’s warmer so we can get in the water! Highly recommend when you’re wanting something a little different. The bathrooms were also really clean! Which is a big plus for camp sites. Firewood was was also really easy to get to.

My family and I really enjoyed out time there! we have two kids 4/7, they had fun exploring both the forest and the river. Our designated camp spot was clean, bathrooms and showers too.
If you are camping in the forest area there is a bit of a walk to the river but nothing unbearable, sunsets are gorgeous, lots of deer, and places for kids to explore and run free.
Water was crystal clear and shallow. It was the perfect place for our spring break. Can’t wait to go back

Loved our cute little camp site! A canopy of trees made us feel secluded but still gave us a good view of the sky. Great amenities - hot shower and clean bathroom close by. Just a short distance from the river too. Would absolutely come back!

My family had a lovely experience camping right along the river

We had a blast at Sparrows Bend! It was so beautiful. The water is crystal clear, and the property is well maintained. My son insists we come again, and I agree!

River was beautiful a and crystal clear. Land was beautiful and we had plenty of space for the kids to run around and get tired.

I absolutely loved tent camping at Sparrow Bent River retreat. The grounds were very clean and well mapped out. The facilities were top notch and it was very peaceful. The river and the cliffs brought a great atmosphere and everyone around the facilities was very welcoming. The only experience that concerned me were the neighbors dogs were pretty loud throughout the night and there were two huge dogs running through the campground at night. They came into our campsite a couple times spooking us and our dog. They made it hard to relax at night knowing my pup was anchored and leashed. This was not a campers dog though, so I don't blame the campsite but it's a concern when you're trying to relax and get ran up on by a couple huge dogs.
Don't get me wrong, I would definitely return but it would be great it they can get the neighbors dogs under control.

My son, his friend and I had a fabulous experience camping at Sparrow Bend. Preston was very responsive and helpful in answering questions. The property and campsite were exactly as described. The outdoor showers were really nice to have, and we appreciated the easy access to tubes to take a float down the Medina. We hope to come back sometime! Beautiful property.

This property is gorgeous! The rocks and cliffs are beautiful and the river is see-through to the bottom. Even though it was cold, my boys still had a great time swimming and playing on the rocks. Campfire site was perfect with grill for making burgers/hot dogs. Loved the big open space under the stars. Everything was clean and as described. Angela responded very quickly to my questions. We will definitely be back!
Bonne communication. L'emplacement était correct.

Great communication with thorough instructions about checking in and accurate description of the property and amenities. The bathroom and shower area was amazing and clean! The fire pits were also a huge plus and firewood was easy to find.

Terrible place for rv people. Park in big rocks and against a big aluminum fence or next to a house that people live in. Older lady that lives there with 2 dogs is rude. Didn’t even acknowledge me when I said hello and asked a question about the bathroom/ shower house. Nice bathrooms but shower is outside with big aluminum piece for a door. Haha. Hell to get there also. Way overpriced.

Love This Place
During a horrendous night at a different Hipcamp, I messaged Angela in the middle of the night to see if she had any shady spots. She was so nice, messaged me back and told me to come right over. Our site was riverfront (small walk to the river) and just amazing. It was quiet, clean and, if you’re inclined, you can rent kayaks and tubes! There are also park models to rent if that’s more your speed. The bathrooms are a walk from the river front sites but they are very nice too. If bathroom proximity is more important than a river view, the forest sites are close and shady. I can’t say enough good things, and I can’t wait to go back.

Great spot by the river
Greg at spot by the river, clean spaces, and no crowds

We had an amazing time!! Would love to go back!!
Thank you for allowing dogs. It was perfect for them. Next time we would try and get a spot closer to the river.

Unexpected camp cat.
Beautiful place to camp and kayak. Also a surprise bonus was the adorable camp cat. She slept in our tent and followed us around the whole time we were there. Would recommend, and look forward to seeing the cat again one day. Go for the views...enjoy the company of a small sweet friend!

Family, river front camping!
Really really pretty site. We stayed on site 3. Perfect for kids. No shade on 3 so def a fall, winter, spring site! Showers were awesome with HOT water for about 5 minutes. So perfect. A little confusing to find which site but if they redid the post for 3 it would be super simple! We stayed in feb, but I KNOW in spring this is a reallly beautiful spot. It’s pretty close to other camp sites, so great for family camping! And the sites are well sized. I’d say 3 was the largest!
The river is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! Clear clear water. And perfect to kayak (which you can rent there) and low enough to plop a river chair in if you’re a water baby like our family! Also Angela responds really fast to any questions. We have spectrum mobile and had full service if that’s a concern! At the top there’s ample outlets to blow up floats, charge phones, and an electric grill she provided (so sweet) if you need. But there’s fire pits with grill plates (which is what we used). A large dumpster up top which helps so much!

It was a really easy place to camp and had a great time with my friends. Only complaint is the showers didn’t have hot water but it’s camping. Great place for a weekend get away!

Beautiful property. Rv sites are close together but it was fine. Tent site seemed nice and spread out. We needed an rv site relatively close to Government Canyon State Natural Area and this fit the bill. Super peaceful and clean. Restrooms were nice and clean. All of the instructions on the web site were clear and spot on. We really enjoyed our stay and i have already recommended it to people. Also if you are staying here and want a great meal out, try the Backyard Bistro. Our breakfast was amazing!

Beautiful landscape. We were one of the only campers there so it was very quiet. The washrooms are large and clean. Our hosts were easy to get in touch with. We wondered down the river in the morning. The light was stunning on the rocks and crystal clear river. Highly recommend

Camper van Friendly!
We took our van to the this spot and was absolutely gorgeous! Took our kayak on the river the next morning and the water stunningly blue. Angela was an incredible host. We will definitely visit again.

Tent camping was great, you get your own little space apart from other camp sites. River was shallow but beautiful. Bathrooms were very clean and convenient

Loved everything about the area, we stayed at riverfront 3, river was so clear area was clean caught a burn ban at the end but it was a great experience, we will definitely be back
