A nice surprise!

When we first got here we weren’t sure but it turned out to be quite nice! It’s small and the sites are semi close together but most people were there to fish and were gone early in the morning for the day. Big trees provided nice shade. Picnic tables and fire pits. Super clean FLUSH toilets yay! We walked down to the river and hung out, brought our chairs and some wine. The river was nice and our toddler liked playing in the small amount of sand there was. We had our dog too. $10 per night.
