Lots of things to do in CG or in adjoining city park. When state parks are closed to camping, this one is open. Reservations by phone, credit cards accepted. Small 'camp' store, but shopping very close by. Heavily wooded sites, blacktop pads, but not level. Power & Water to RV sites, but no sewer and only one dump station for the entire park. Holiday stays are a bear when you have to wait in line to dump. NO HONEY WAGON SERVICE. Historic grounds as this was war battlefield area and Washington's HQ building was on this property. Interpretive walks, wildlife center, Jr ranger program for the kids, canoes, john boats, paddle boats, but no swimming as this estatuary is our local water supply. Has group tent sites for church or scout groups. No banquet facilities for indoor gatherings. We find this price is right as well.

We visit the campgrounds 3-4 times a year. The sites are in good condition and the location is perfect for us. It is a wonderful weekend get away from the hustle and bustle of home. The kids look forward to the trips. The Bathrooms are your typical public park bathrooms but the Rangers are great and very personal. The campground has added wonderful memories for my family and ones we look forward making in the future.

188 sites. Showers and restrooms, pay phone, picnic tables and grills at sites, laundry, ltd groceries, ltd RV supplies, dump station, several playgrounds, 30 miles of hiking trails, bike rentals, boat rentals, fishing, archery range (have to have your own bow and arrows), scheduled nature and living history programs, a discovery center with nature and history exhibits, two golf courses, an 18 hole disc golf course.Very easy to get into. Interior roads were well-maintained and all were paved. The beauty of the park was wonderful. Lots of mature trees everywhere. Unfortunately where we were on Loop A you could hear I-64 all day and all night. The restrooms and showers were very poorly maintained and dirty. Laundry was a little better but not much. They had 4 washers and 4 dryers.
