Overall Rating

The host, Joe, is hospitable and keeps the C.G. clean. Normal rate is $20/night; $10 with Senior Pass.
There are 13 sites available, some partially shaded. Three vault toilets, trash cans at each site, and 2 potable water spigots. Propane can be had at St. Maries, about a dozen miles up the hwy. The c.g. is less than a 1/4 mile off Hwy 3 so the traffic can be heard, though it's sparse at night. Also, the c.g. sits on the St. Joe River which is only about 40-50 yards wide. There's apparently no speed limit or boat motor size restrictions. While the water traffic isn't all that busy, boaters tend to zoom up and down the river. Between the two, this isn't a place to come for quietness. That said, I can recommend it, though I think the full fee rate of $20. is a bit high.
