Description

I can’t believe no one has posted this place yet! It’s amazing! I’d pay a 5 stars hotel fee to sleep here. It’s FREE! It’s right by the river, the white water is pretty loud and very relaxing! It’s near the road but you can’t hear it from how loud the rushing water is.

I walked around the park and didn’t see any sign prohibiting sleeping in the park. No signs whatsoever. A police officer drove by and didn’t come near me. I also asked a few locals that were fishing and they said yeah it would be fine to park overnight. No one bothered me. It seems to be a popular fishing spot for locals. After sunset I was the only one in the park.
I slept like a baby to the sound of rushing water.

There are plenty of designated parking spots and some on grass. Big rigs can easily fit.
Also a cool thing is that it’s located on historic Route 66. Love it!

Oh and great cell reception. 4 bars LTE.

What bliss! Nice swimming and fishing, peaceful spot except for some pugnacious locals … mostly local families enjoying this place. Plenty of space for all rigs, I stayed by the lake and was not bothered for almost a week. Wish there was a potable water source! Sweet, small farmer’s market on Saturdays in town plus a good supermercado. Grateful for the respite of this town, thanks to the OP.

A really lovely spot. We arrived late after a double feature at the 66 drive in but had a long lazy morning enjoying the water the next morning. Humphrey spent his 6th birthday swimming and enjoying a break from the drive

its open.
really nice park.
we wanted to camp under the bridge but we were on a flash flood warning so we camped up by the old bridge.

Report Check-In

It was a very well lit, albeit flooded, parking lot that worked fine until around midnight when an officer circled my vehicle and loudly read out my license plate a few times before leaving.
