Overall Rating

We stayed 4 nights. Had the place to ourselves! So quiet! Very clean, including the vault toilets. Some secluded shady campsites and others are more open. Our 26’ travel trailer slipped through all campground roads pretty well. We had a great site, #7. Lots of wildlife. Hummers, Ospreys, Bald Eagles, numerous forest rodents. Fresh water right across from our campsite. Will definitely keep this on my favorites list.
