Stayed 2 nights. Got here Thursday left early Saturday morning. Slept great both nights to the sound of the flowing river. We had the CG all to ourselves the first night. Then tent campers strolled in very late on Friday night. There aren’t any Sites #5 and #8. All grown over. So only 7 useable sites.

We were here three nights in late July 2019. We had site seven which was the closest to the river. This is a rustic campground with no water or garbage services. Vault toilets were immaculately clean, with a good supply of TP.

Sites are well spaced with foliage between the sites for privacy.

There were lots of mosquitos. DEET was our friend.

We loved this spot right on the bank of the river.

Campground did not fill any night. Plenty of empty spots available.

Echo the review except that I camped overnight on the first weekend in October, 2020. Cold nights but quiet with only the river to break the silence. The entry road, despite not being paved, was easily negotiated by my RV with dinghy tow at a speed that implied patience with few bumps and even fewer potholes.
