We are less than one mile from Montauk State Park with it's access to the beautiful and pristine Current River and some of the best trout fishing in our state! Canoeing and kayaking is a favorite activity while visiting and there are several businesses with rental available for river water fun.

We had a great site, and were pleased how convenient it was to the State Park. Happy Pappy's is definitely on our list of places to return to.

Alice Shelton

Great location. Quiet, well managed, friendly. Will stay again. The site we were in was a little steep and the hitch got in a bind when we set up. I think a little more gravel and some grading would eleminate that problem.

Campground Response

Thank you Alice for the recommendation. We hope you will come visit us again!

Ray Oldsen

Great as always.

Very friendly and very accommodating. We will definitely be back next time I go to Montauk and trout fish!

Orville Swearengin

Very nice campground. Didn't get to stay the second time we had reservations due to an illness and had some trouble getting that fee back. Would suggest waiting until closer to time to reserve because you have to pay the entire fee when you reserve. If I had known that I probably wouldn't have reserved a couple months ahead of time

Campground Response

Orville - Sorry you didn't see our refund policy on our website. You must cancel 7 days in advance to get a refund. In the past many people have reserved with us, then they were able to get a site at Montauk State Park when they arrived. They either don't show up and/or we are unpaid plus we miss other opportunities to fill the site. We hope to see you again.

Paul Kiel

Always enjoy staying here. WiFi signal is weak is my only complaint.

Campground Response

Thank you Paul! We always appreciate your staying with us. Wish we could fix that WIFI and get more bandwidth but we have to wait on CenturyLink to make those updates in this area. Will look forward to your next visit!

David Davidson

Park was clean and oh so very quiet. The store was closed. No one to assist. Very few people were camping. WiFi would not work. Garmin on RV mode sent us down horrible gravel roads. It was no fault to the campground but was totally unnecessary. DO NOT TURN ONTO ANY GRAVEL ROAD!!! Limited phone service and internet. No TV. Would have loved to go to store and sample pies....

Campground Response

David - so sorry you had problems with WIFI, unfortunately, Century Link does frequently go down which is out of our control. When you come visit us again please see that our cell numbers are posted on the door of the store for any assistance you may need . We thank you for camping with us and if you are with us on Thursday, Friday or Saturday you will be able to enjoy fresh pie. Thanks again!
