So maybe I shouldn't post about it then...? This camp is off the beaten path and you won't find it unless you know exactly where it is. I have been coming here over 20 years. When the river is low, it's ideal because you don't have the obnoxious RV and boating people who I've seen ruin perfectly good stays here with there entitlement and drunkenness. Some sites have electric and water hookup but those are $40 and I'm a tent camper. The bathrooms and showers are on the newer side and this campground has one of the best hot showers you will find. Can be quite hot in summer, so after June, it's miserable. Spring, fall and even early winter here are ideal. Hadn't allowed fires in many years.
