Great 1st time camping experience
Me and my partner decided to go tent camping for our first time and the cove was a perfect first time experience! Showers and restrooms were easily accessible and well kept. Running water and wagons are provided to unload and load up your things. Plus, you have easy river access! Next time we will do some of the water activity services provided by a service company nextdoor to right near "The Cove". Lastly, all the other campers were nice and Kurt, the groundskeeper, was very helpful with getting us settled in. Kurt even helped us pitch our tent at 9pm at night. We learned the importance of arriving when there's still ample light out.
With that, we will be back for sure. Next time for more than a couple of days and we would recommend "The Cove" to our friends and family.
Great stay at the river
We stayed at the River Site and loved it. Dipping in the river to cool off on a hot day and then Falling asleep to the sound of the river was amazing. We had a great time and the campground was very clean. Would recommend this and plan to come back again.!
The Cove was an unexpected treat! I almost don't want to review this spot because it is such a hidden gem! The spot is about 50 feet away from a beach shared with the other campsites but the actual site is surrounded by trees so there is much more privacy than we had anticipated! There is a small propane firepit but you will want to bring a charcoal stove to cook on (ask the owners first tho- fire is real in this area!) and there is a large canopy to help with shade in hot summer months. The river/ beach area is really lovely and well maintained, and the camp has way more facilities than we expected (showers, bathrooms, great grounds). We will be adding this campground to our annual trips!
Great place to stay on the river
We stayed at the “River” site and it was a great location with a canopy for extra shade, a flat spot for our tent and a propane fire ring for that camping ambiance. The River is right on the river, with a small beach and swimming area protected from the current. A great location and accommodating host.
Great river access!
Our group rented both Riverside and Canopy sites for 4th of July weekend. We put all of our tents in the canopy site because it was nice and shady and used the Riverside site as more of a hangout area in the evenings. We had a great experience and the temperatures in the high 90s were no problem since we were so close to the river to cool down all day. There is a nice deep spot with an eddy at their beach spot that made for great swimming. Would love to return and camp here again!
