A campground better suited for large gatherings rather than secluded getaways. It also serves as a nice place to have a picnic for a day trip as they also have spots specifically for that. Other than the day sites they also have 9 single sites, 6 double sites, 1 triple site, and 3 group sites. There's more non standard sites than there are normal single sites which gives you an idea of how many people would be in the area if everything were booked up on a busy weekend or holiday. As with the rest of the sites in the canyon there are picnic tables and fire rings as well as vault toilets and drinking water spread throughout the compound. There is also a trail system to the south that leads to river access for tubing or fishing.
We've been visiting Perception Park as a family for over 10 years! It's always our go to spot for a close weekend getaway. The campground has various sizes of spots, and is kept clean. On one visit, we had a rattlesnake camping out in the roots of a tree in our spot, and the camp hosts took care of it quickly and safely (no snakes harmed)! This campground is also next to the river, and has easy access to get into the river in multiple locations.
