Campground Overview

RIVERSIDE PARKThe main feature of Riverside Park is the camping! The campground has 8 back-in sites with both 30 amp and 50 amp power. The sites have water hookups (sewer not available). There are three tent camping sites available with no hookups or electric. In 2018 a new shower/restroom building was constructed.  Riverside Park has a picnic shelter and tables, barbecues, playground equipment and an all-purpose sports field. The park is located on the Scenic Rum River featuring a canoe and kayak launch. While you're here feel free to drop a line and do some fishing! The swim area is located at the north end of the park. Across the river from the campground there is a dog park for your favorite pet to enjoy the scenery leash free.RIEBE PARK

Riebe Park is approximately 27 acres with about one third of it being occupied by a 9-hole Disc Golf Course.  Future plans include walking paths and a bridge connecting to Riverside Park on the south side of the Rum River.  The Disc Golf Course is the first feature of this newer Princeton Park so amenities will be added as resources become available. The course is 9 holes of grassy fairways with plenty of trees on either side. There is water and tall grass hazards on the course as well.  While the course is not long, it is challenging with all of the trees and changes in direction on the fairway. Recently new hole signs were added, and the tee box locations were adjusted.  Plans are also in the works to install a warm-up/putting basket. It is free to play the course.  Have fun!! This park also includes a dog park.  The dog park contains a large fenced-in area for the dogs and picnic tables for the owners. There is also a water fountain.  Riebe Park Campground contains three cart-in primitive tent campsites. There is a vault toilet and water located near the parking lot.  Campsites require a reservation.
