“Great beautiful spot close to town and to bike trails”

Just to update information already given here July 12 2017
There is now a charge , it's either a 5 dollar per night without the provided camping table or 10 dollars with , well worth it.
The dirt road leading down to the site has been worked on and is actually pretty smooth , any vehicle can do it.
Two porta potties on site.

I don't know if it's a suggested donation or not, a campground host snuck up on me and, handing me an official looking envelope, asked for $10. "It's only $5 if you don't use a picnic table," he confirmed. We made it down the road without issue in our big ol' van. People had some smal trailers. Just take it slow. Though a f... more
