Primitive camping.

Boat ramp. Access to camp sites by vehicle is usually vlosef. I have accessed them by water the last few times I've camped there. Beautiful wooded !!! sites that back up to the lake. There are no showers, rangers or park attendants. Bathrooms if open are just a hoke in the ground like an outhouse. Your on your own if someone is harassing you or your injured. You'll just have to handle it yourself or pack up and gi get help

My favorite campground!!
