Nice Find

Clean and quiet campsite on the water. There are several water spigots and there are sites with electrical hookups for RVs. The site also has a fishing dock with a small ramp to access the river with. During my stay there was lots of bear activity, but the bears avoided human contact and were not a threat. The site closed for renovations the day I left, but should be open again by the spring
