“Great Time. Nice trail down to Cool Rapids. Picnic Table and Fire Pit with Grate in each campsite.”

Overall Rating

I had a wonderful time at this well kept and clean secluded campground. It has 2 vault toilets. But the water pump was out of service. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire pit with heavy grate. there are 2 trails starting at campsites 1 and 3 that go down to the sparrow rapids each is easy to navigate and well worth the short hike. all 6 campsites are secluded and out of site of each other. It was very peaceful and quiet several days I had the whole campground to myself. It is just 3 miles from 2 bars and a restaurant which all sell ice. and only 2 miles from a roadside park with a water pump. Enjoy but being close to the river don't forget the mosquito spray it's a must. Also it's close to 2 very nice picturesque waterfalls within 20 miles.
