Hard to find, but worth it if you don't like crowds

This was a great little find in the middle of nowhere.  We were traveling home after Thanksgiving and we don't like crowded campgrounds.  We were in a tent (didn't need electric) and this was perfect.

Detail location of campground


It is not easy to find, but the map WILL take you there. It's twisty-turney and will look like you are in the wrong spot (there are no signs) . The last "turn" is onto a gravel road BEFORE you get to the cement railroad bridge (immediately before). If you go under the bridge, you will hit a dead end.
