Lovely two nights

Happy with the clean showers and bathrooms. Showers were $1 for 5 mins. Our campsite was located at the very end. Quite quiet area vs the front campsites which I prefer.

Into the woods

We were lucky and got the last spot for the night. Very friendly Rangers, big campground that doesn't feel big with lots of trees and shade. We went on a few nice hikes and enjoyed a short swim in the quite cold river.
