“Not free. Seemed cramped, neat scenery down the hill a bit.”

Overall Rating

The site brought this up as free, but it was $10/plot. The plots seemed closer together than I care for, and they were mostly full. I opted to move on... Just wanted to post this in case anyone else was counting on free. Oh, and the hill up is pretty steep. Lots of downshifting. If you park down by the river the scenery is worth looking at, there's a sweet little trail or two.
