Beautiful site next to river

Went in early June. Pretty cold but very beautiful.

Lots of shade and fun hiking area

My husband and I love this campground. There are no services available and the drive in is very long on a dirt road that is dry and bumpy, but the camp ground is worth it. You are nestled in the trees with a river below - you can wade in the water and enjoy fishing as well.

One of our Favorites

Quiet little place. We love going here because it is usually clean and has fishing and swimming close by and the water is shallow enough for all of us to enjoy.
