Awesome camp

I enjoy coming here, I have been coming here for couple of years now. Hiking is awesome. There is a creek right behind your camp and it’s so nice hearing it at night. You get to see lots of wildlife; owls, squirrels, foxes, coyotes, bears and lots of footprints of small game. Unfortunately at the moment it is closed and many campgrounds bear are closed due to people leaving so much trash behind. Not sure when they will be opening again but it’s been a year since they have been closed.

This is a great place for hunting. Here are some photos of my hunting experience.
