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.

Prepare to be double charged I played $135 for 4 nights through hipcamp and when I arrived I was charged an extra $115 its a beautiful campground but be prepared to pay much more

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.

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.

Located near the "Y" and very accessible to tube rentals for floating the river. You can even BYOT (Bring Your Own Tube).

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.
