This was a really rough trip. I think the main issue is that the picture does not match the campsite. I chose this campsite based on the picture - it has a flowing river in the main image. My husband and I arrived after a grueling drive and it led us to a gas station. This location is not named “Hillcrest River campground.” After a runaround, we read to follow the host’s directions that told us to go behind the gas station and go straight. We did. This led us to a large field around midnight. There was no bathroom and it was really confusing. I had kept the host updated with our location, to no response and then tried calling earlier in the night when we’d first arrived, to no response. I woke up to messages that sounded aggressive (a lot of question marks and exclamation marks directed at me). I was blamed for choosing the wrong campsite, when there was only one option… to choose the site that I did. This location should have its own separate sign up spot, without a picture of the river. In the morning, our host told us how to get to the campsite (the other side of the tractor supply). It did end up being a beautiful Mountain View with a portapotty bathroom and sink. If signage was better, it would have been easier to see (that we should have turned right), but since we arrived in dense fog, we had driven past it. The road noise is very heavy as well, as this location is directly off of a highway. It’s great for being close to the road, but when you turn around, all of the people pumping gas are watching you (so not remote). We were just exhausted from the previous night that we went home early. Donnelly did check in to see where we were the next morning (also lots of question marks), which I took to be a kind gesture. Overall, definitely a really disappointing weekend.

Large, level campsites by the river. Quiet (late October), but close to everything. Don was responsive to calls and questions.

The campground on site 2 was nice. But the host himself was rude and unfriendly and VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! I will never use this camp site again due to this.

This is a beautiful location nestled by the river. Really glad I pedaled the extra mile to camp outside Cumberland. You can make out the highway as a dull murmur -- but birds and nature made up more of the soundscape. If you're camping off-season, you need to ask Mr. Bohrer about access to drinking water.

I called and told them I was going to be late getting in. They sat and waited for me to make sure I found it and that I had everything I needed.
