If you're looking for a family camp out with a good time you cannot miss this opportunity at peace river. Family friendly atmosphere with ATV riding if you wish and lots of fun with the kids sifting for ancient sharks teeth in the river. Best times to camp in tents is during the winter months unless you have an RV.

This is one of my favorite places on the planet. Bring a strainer and a shovel. You will have a shark tooth in the first five minutes. You never know what you will find. I have found shark teeth, crocodile teeth, horse teeth, beaver teeth, turtle shell, manatee rib, scutes, and other bones. I dream about this river when I... More

The access point was dirty with trash all over. The dock area looked like it was just a hangout for drug user and alcoholics. What a shame! The water was also trashed and unkempt. Even the beauty of the trees and shoreline was negated by the garbage.

Place is good for small kids but lame for teenagers and adults. Owner thinks he is Adolf Hitler along with his natzi malitia running around on golf carts yelling at everyone.

We had a group of 3 families that went over the holiday break. We had a good time but understand the total cost of going up front. First they charge extra (4.00 a day) to run an Air conditioner / electric heater which is already on top of the 60.00 for a full hookup site. They state the 60.00 rate... More

What a great time this place was. Our kids had a blast. The river was beautiful and the people were awesome. We went over the holiday weekend so it was a little busier than usual. Quite a few 4 wheelers, and a packed crowd, but all were very respectful and the place was quieted down by 10:00pm $45 for a... More
