The stars here…so many so bright it was as if the sun was an hour from rising… Beautiful. Downside, the campground were in disgusting condition. We had a dead deer carcass in the middle of the campsite along with someone food garbage. There is a river there but i would not recommend it for small kids. No real water access. The bathroom was very gross, I'd rather go out in the woods. I don't expect much but it desperation needed to be hosed down. It was quiet and an amazing view minus the occasional car. Campground is very close to the road and about 15 minutes from town.
