Cute area

Adorable camping spot. The river was beautiful and the camping is right by the water. There was a walking trail to a little nearby convenience store. 

The spots don’t offer really any privacy between you and your neighbors - you’re all very close together. The bathrooms smelled horrible. Kinda pricy

Very small

The campground is very small and all of the campsites are very close together. So close that the site number 7 that I am in almost shares the site with site 8. If you camp here you should bring several tarps to block out your neighbors.

Beautiful river! OMG campsites are level and pleasant

I had a great time here. Most everyone was friendly… there was a generator running all day… but it was a pretty quiet one. Pick a site along the river if possible.
