Nice spot with fishing and levees to walk

This rustic yet charming place was a welcoming respite for the weekend. The hosts are kind and friendly. They were willing to help bring picnic tables to a site if they weren't already there. They also warned us of an upcoming storm - this location can flood when the river rises. They also said to let them know if others were too loud. We found nothing out of the ordinary to worry about.

We choose a site away from the others - but it is just one stretched loop. There are vault toilets - some are still closed due to covid restrictions but the hosts are working on improving things. In fact they are waiting for more money from the state to finish improving the entrance road. It was bumpy but not too bad. There were bunches of large gnat-like insects but they didn't bite like mosquitos. 

There are a series of levees that circle around the campground. Locals came in all day long to fish. Some launched their boats but most stayed on shore. We walked along the levees to explore the area. The brush was maybe knee high but it was a peaceful hike.

Just down the road is a campground that is close to the road. We stayed there first thinking we were at this place. Back at home I looked things up on the computer and saw we were off. We would definitely come back here again.

  • It's a small sign so keep an eye out for it. The campground is down the road a bit.
  • Picnic shelter was away from the camping just a bit
  • Hiking along the levees was peaceful
  • Boat launch too
