Only 2... more

April 8, 2018. Super clean campground. Here in early spring and water was not yet turned on and was free. Access to 20 miles of trails (hiking and biking). A little road noise but not bad. Campground mostly vacant - one other camper here the night we stayed. Great separation in the sites.
