Briar bottom

Great place for group camping. Bathrooms are shared with other group sites. Outdoor spicier at every site along with picnic tables under shelter and a campfire ring. Great spot to take the family. We went for 6 years straight. Make sure to lock up all your food the black bears will come take it if not.
