First time reservation for the Squirrel Rock RV Campground. Confirmed with Julie our arrival time. Subsequently, needed to modify dates. Alerted Julie, once again; friendly woman. Our water line froze and broke causing damage to our stick built home. Left a message for Julie indicating our disappointment in having to cancel our two night stay. Later that day, a friendly voice rung my phone, it is was Julie. Julie expressed concern for our water line break and told us she would be refunding monies paid to secure our stay at the Squirrel Rock RV Campground. Look forward to when we can get away to this serene place and to meet host, Julie. Thank you much!!

The hosts were very informative and friendly. The camping spot was spacious and clean. They think of every detail and are so accommodating. A great spot to be close to Columbia and Sonora area. We were able to dump our trailers holding tanks at Quarry RV near Columbia before heading home. We highly recommend this site.

Graet 2 site camping!
Great camping site close to Columbia State Park. We reserved both sites and had plenty of room for two travel trailers (22 and 26 feet) plus the tow vehicles. The site has a very nice picnic table with umbrella, fire pit, Briquette BBQ, and beautiful lighting throughout. Plenty of games are also provided: horse shoes, cornhole and card games. Both sites are very private and surrounded by trees and boulders. Close to the local Columbia airport so you will hear some aircraft noise, but it is not overly intrusive and quiet at night.
