We chose this campground for it's location on the beautiful Eau Claire River. We had planned to canoe all weekend, but the river was very low! If you are planning to canoe, call ahead to be sure that the river is high enough. Our canoe got hung up on the bottom so often that it took the fun out of our day trip. We also got completely rained out. We were only able to canoe a few hours the entire weekend, so we spent a lot of time at the campsite. Overall the campground was mediocre. Most of the campsites were wooded and private. However, it was also very sandy, which is always annoying because sand gets into everything! It was difficult to get firewood since there is not a full time staff person at the campgroud. A person comes to the campground once a day for about 30 minutes to sell firewood, so if you're not around, you don't get any firewood. I might return to this campground in the future if I knew ahead of time that the river was high enough for canoeing. The Eau Claire River is beautiful; it is definitely the campground's greatest asset. However, there isn't a lot for people to do at this campground if you don't canoe or fish.
