I just received a phone call from Fisherman’s Bend regarding the reservation we placed nearly a year ago 8/22/16 for 8/20-22/17… The lady made it sound like she wanted us to cancel our reservation.
Because there is a gate to control entry, she also said nobody allowed in before 2pm or after 10pm but the traffic will be horrible. Okay, I get that.
She said to not be surprised if cell service and power go down.
Making quite an effort to discourage reservation holders but no effort to work with them. Have you never been fully booked before? Not able to set an extra person up at the gate to turn around non-reservation holders? Not able to hold reservations for people who have them, who might not make it on time the first night? Not able to hold reservations for people who have cell service go down on them and are unable to call in? Come on… I know you would have loved to have me cancel so that you could resell my cabin at $$$$.
Just to reiterate, we are coming and do not cancel on us.
Hi Brandy, That’s too bad about your recent experience with Fisherman’s Bend. Just wanted to let you know though that CampsitePhotos.com is not affiliated with any of the campgrounds listed on our site. We provide the campsite photos, reservation link and a little more info about the campground/area.
I love that you have pictures of camp sites. It makes it so much easier when reserving a spot at a campground that I might not have been at, before. Would be nice if there were photos posted of the Group Sites at the campgrounds. I can’t ever find any pictures for them and those are the sites that we are interested in. It’s just a thought.
Hi Yeteve, Thanks for the kinds comments! And good idea about getting photos of the group campsites. We have some – at a few of the campgrounds, but need to start photographing all group campsites.
Just a note that Fishermen’s Bend has two loops, the River Loop (R) and the Camp Loop (C). All of your photos are of the Camp Loop and should be designated as C01, C02, C03, etc. It doesn’t appear you have any photos of the River Loop (R01, R02, R03, etc.) Otherwise, anyone wanting to see a photo of R04 will be vastly disappointed in the photo they see in C04 (R04 is much nicer). The main difference between the loops is that the River loop has Electric and Sewer, but no water (although you can fill up your tanks at the check-in station).
Thanks so much for pointing that out. We made a note of it – that we have campsites of the ‘C’ loop at Fishermens Bend campground. And we will rename each photo with a ‘C’.
Do you have a sit map?
Unfortunately we don’t have a campground map for Fishermen’s Bend.
With all the trees gone and the rest lying around it sure has changed the beautiful camp[
Coincidentally we just shot new campsite photos at Fishermen’s Bend today and will be uploading to the campground page soon.
The camp site are no longer private sense they cut all the trees down? Please respond, because I heard its ugly now?
Our Fishermens Bend campsite photos are recent – taken in September 2019. They reflect how the campsites/campground looks. The campground does trim trees and may remove a few that are deemed hazardous, but for the most part – there are many trees throughout the campground/area.
