Best site I’ve been to

I have been on a cross country trip and this is by far the most beautiful, quiet and peaceful site I’ve been to. The creek is beautiful, the air smells like cedar and juniper, and it’s truly such a wonderful place. I would stay here for a week if I could. Definitely camp here!

I rented an Escape camper van. Perfect lodging as it was riverside and torrential downpour forced many tent campers to leave.
