“Amazing host, clean and fun”

Overall Rating

We stayed a week in the large group campsite and the host did a fantastic job of keeping all of the bathrooms clean and enforcing the rules. Seriously. The bathroom smelled nice and she used a handheld pressure washer on them every day. Amazing. There is a creek access that leads out into the small reservoir offshoot. Decent amount of mosquitoes so be sure to bring repellent the closer you are to the river.

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.
