"At a loss for words.... amazing place! "

This is a Forest Service first come first serve campground with only 6 sites, so snagging one could prove challenging. We had been in the area a couple days before, and we checked out the tags at sites and saw when people were planning to leave... Read more

"No Frills.... but free! "

This is an easy to access, near to attractions, dispersed site with a view! No more than a big parking lot next to the river really, but for free.... it can not be beat! Primitive camping with no amenities other than a vault toilet= no frills,... Read more
