  • We just drive through here for the first in 20 years and it’s still just so beautiful. Just like I remember as a kid except a little more overgrown. We love nature and the beauty here is stunning...

  • We enjoyed our weekend at Thomson Causeway with our popup. We stayed at site 41. Although I would have liked the pad to be a little longer, it was still a nice site. Not a lot of privacy, but...

  • We’ll kept park. Some sites have beautiful views and are quite large. Somehow we picked a small one with no shade and no views. Shower houses are decent. Lots of water faucets, but nothing at each site.
  • Outstanding campground! Be sure to bring 2 things: 1) PLENTY of mosquito protection, and 2) outdoor lighting for nighttime (it gets pretty dark out there). Otherwise, the amount of wildlife you see is off the charts! Turtles, cranes, rabbits....we even saw a fox! This campground is very well maintained, from the shower house to the bathroom, to the sites themselves. We sprayed ourselves with OFF at least twice a day and we lit citronella candles. I saw mosquitoes, but I didn't get bit even once!
