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!

Overall, an excellent spot to camp! They will try to charge you twice (once through HipCamp and again when you get there). You're better off just going to their website, calling, and reserving the spot because it's about $15 cheaper anyway. The facilities were under construction, so bathroom space was limited BUT it looks like they'll have brand new ones next year.
The site the campground gives you as a hipcamper is gorgeous. It is by a little creek and a barn, and in the morning the sheepdogs are out in the pasture doing their work. There is a water pump by the site, but if you walk into the campground itself, you can take advantage of a full bathhouse.
Note - there is no dish sink, so you'll need to bring a wash bin. Also, e-mail the host when you book on hipcamp to ensure your reservation has been scheduled.
I would recommend this beautiful camping spot in Townsend. They have very nice bathrooms. The creek spots are the best. You can rent tubes and buy firewood in office. Only negative was that our spot for some reason had alot of poop, not sure what kind of animal but didnt seem to be anywhere else. I would stay here again but go through business instead of hipcamp there seemed to be some confusion on charges.
Nice campground. Unique. Has farm attached to campground and also sits in river. Not secluded primitive camping by any means but definitely worth the trip. Staff very helpful and friendly. Owners and host accommodating.
If you know what you are expecting, this place could be great. We were under the impression from the photos and the listing that we would have our own site for our tent and some relative privacy. It was Labor Day weekend and we booked pretty last minute, so we knew it would be busy. Our site had cars parked in it, so we barely had room for our tent. The park was packed with RVs and there was probably 5 to 10 feet between sites. If you have kids or are trying to have more of a social partying experience this campground has lots of activity and is close to the river for swimming. The man who greeted us when we arrived also could not have been nicer. It was a nice place, just not what we expected.
