This is a great location for endless outdoor activities! In one day you can bike ride, fish, hike, 4x4, tee off at nearby Graeagle and have dinner at one of the restaurants there! It cools down at night so it was pretty cold for our taste if we were in a tent. Full sunshine on your RV if you have solar as it gets dark about 9pm during summer so our batteries were well charged. We loved this place and will go again but many sites are taken fast so it’s a huge gamble if you don’t have reservations. By the way make sure you check out Frazier Falls, wow that was underrated!
