Little River Campground is in Townsend on the Little River. It has many mature trees, full hook ups with both 30 and 50 amps, water and wifi. Newly remodeled bathhouses are a welcome addition with 2 outside showers for a quick rinse off after playing in the river. A small store for necessary rations (s’mores, milk, bread etc.!) Protected from the highway, the campground makes a perfect place for children to ride bikes. With adult supervision, children may tube (under 12 must wear a life jacket) or fish in the river. Activities take place from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Enjoy a hayride around our adjoining farm and see the animals. Meet fellow campers while eating a BBQ dinner and ending with s’mores!

We showed up around 9pm expecting to be able to easily find our campsite. What we ended up showing up to was an extremely packed campground that didn't even have a campsite number that we were assigned on Hipcamp. We asked multiple people about the campground details but no one could help. We ended up calling the number on Hipcamp and instead of meeting us to help us find our spot, the owner made us try and find a campfire by the river and walk down there to have her assist us. When I finally found the fire the owner was not very friendly or helpful. Apparently they're not too familiar with how Hipcamp works and they didn't even have a spot for us. They ended up squeezing us in a spot next to the basketball court but it was for sure not what we paid for. We had two nights there and ended up leaving in the morning after the first. Very disappointed and I wouldn't recommend this place.
Not what it seems on the site.
The campsite wasn't on farmland the way it looked on the website. By the office sites were very crowded together. They just let us choose between sites that were left, rather than what we had signed up for. The first site offered was a concrete slab right next to the swings and playground. Our other options were across the river (away from bathrooms and amenities) and not mowed (very tall grass). We chose one across the river, which was nice for privacy, but hard to be away from the bathrooms. There was also a large piece of rusted metal left over our firepit we had to move. The campsite was not at all what was expected from the Hipcamp site. However the river is nice and the bathrooms were clean.
