Pigeon River Campground

All sites have access to a swimming pool and general store to pick up supplies and a snack. There is also a laundry room, river access (with availability for private boaters and fishermen to easily get their boats in and out of the water), and internet access. The RV campsites offer back-in sites, hookups for water/sewer and power (20, 30, and 50 amp), and a fire ring and picnic table are available at each of the 12 sites.

The camping cabins offer a unique camping experience where you’ll be a little closer to nature with better amenities than hunkering down in a tent. Additionally, each cabin sleeps five guests and has air conditioning and heat, a microwave, fridge, and grill, plus a firepit and picnic table outside. Private bathrooms are near the pool area. Sit back on the covered porch chairs and relax as you watch and listen to the flow of the Pigeon River.
