Overall we really liked this camping area. Lots of good mountain biking and hiking nearby. The road in is pretty bumpy but short. You can hear some road noise but the river drowns most of it out. There is a dump station, fresh water, and garbage at the ranger station for $5. There are showers at red fish lake for $2 and the water is ni... more
