Site is good although needed some keeping up when I was there. Bathroom had not been dumped in a long time and they were out of most needs. The site was very pretty and had potential! The falls that you can hike to are super close! Right out the back of the campsite and it is a easy trail for dogs and young kids. There is a spot to swim at the bottom as well! You can even climb to the top of the falls which makes for a fun view!
