We drove through this site on the way east along an easy access gravel road off of the highway, and saw that there are two camping areas. The first is by the pond where the sites are close together, and the second is just beyond that along the river bend where the sites were further apart. The sites were 3/4 occupied, probably road construction crews, and the pads are gravel and appeared level. The campground appeared clean, and it was hard to gage the nearby highway noise due to the windy day. We didnt check the restroom, and noticed that there were two small cabins available to rent.
