“Summer crowds gone, so peaceful and quiet”

Reviewed May 07, 2015

Overall Rating

Stayed here near the end of October. The campground was closing at the end of October so Q-dog and I were almost the only ones here, just how we like it. So of course I loved it. Site #34 good but if crowded perhaps site #35. Didn't need reservations at that time of year. There is also camping at a back loop that looked nice. Hiking trails from the campground around Blue Heron loop and the Catawaba Overlook.

There is also an old mining community nearby and in fact will pass on the Blue Heron loop. A daily train arrives with visitors so its fun to hear the train whistle.

I don't always keep track of internet connectivity but in my notes, I have stated no internet. That would have been in 2013.
