Needs Update ***Beautiful Park***
We nearly passed by this jewel in favor of the state park across the river. So glad we took a chance on ignoring an old review!! Nicely paved entrance, leveled gravel sites placed with plenty of distance between camp spots. Yes, bring a decent hose if you want to connect to the water. It’s Ali g the back of these larger sites. Cement patio, cement picnic table with benches, camp fire ring, even a bbq. Hook for your fresh fish catch and cleaning bench. Dam is in sight, river is lovely. At 5pm, lots of people fishing with their kids along the rocky bank. Army Corp of Engineers have done a great job. I’m sharing with the ParkAdvisor friends because this is a great find. Did I mention it was $25/night with water and power??!. 🤩
Added after staying overnight: there is a
Huge horn that blows when the dam releases water. High water horn is VERY loud, like a tornado horn and goes off when they release water to generate power. Very loud!!.

Nice But Neglected
Right below the spillway of Keystone Dam near the powerhouse. Nicely spaced lots, pretty level but large pools of water in sites after heavy rains. Full hookups but hose bibs can be almost 50 feet from some campsites.
Park needs some managerial attention. Three or four of the best shady waterfront sites seem to be occupied by "volunteers" who live here for free but I have never seen anyone do a lick of work. Lots of trash left in campsites and fire rings which blow around in the wind. Have only seen a Ranger drive through once or twice in several weeks but campground is usually quiet. Many sites go empty.
One of the nicest, biggest shady sites here has been "reserved" by a small tent for days with no other signs of human habitation.
Campground has great potential but poor management.
