This is one of those reviews I might regret leaving - as if too many people find out about this place, we might not be able to score a spot here in the future!
This is an immaculately maintained campground on the Bounder River, and a true gem easily accessible from I-90. A former mink farm, turned trout farm that morphed into a campground over the years - you'd never guess this place is over 30 years old.
The spots are kinda a hodgepodge of selections, as this campground grew out of where people naturally camped when it was a trout farm. But each is spacious and well appointed. We were able to snag a riverfront grassy spot - and it was divine! So relaxing to listen to the babbling of the creek.
There are several full hook-up sites along the back wall of the park, which are a bit smaller in size - but we've certainly seen worse. However the park offers honeywagon service to the water/electric sites for just $10, and there is a dump station at the entrance - so if you're just staying a few days, it's well worth getting closer to the creek if you can do without having sewer at your site.
There are a couple of stocked trout ponds in the park, and you can borrow a pole and try to catch some for dinner - just 50 cents an inch if you catch any.
Super friendly staff while we were there, busily working away keeping things maintained. For instance - the swings in the playground didn't even squeak!
There are WiFi hotspots throughout the park, and we had no trouble keeping happily online during our stay. AT&T had boostable 4G service, and our Verizon was a bit spotty.
