Very excluded. What you expect from a Backcountry camp. Enjoyed the experience, and will be back.

Nice place. Campsites are dispersed a little bit which is really nice. You can refill your water by the pond and there’s a place for a boat launch if that’s your thing. There’s a bathhouse with 2 toilets and one shower. There’s a small nature trail adjacent to the campsites. Overall I had an excellent experience at this site. Will definitely be back.

Got a bit confused about the backcountry versus primitive camp ground sites. The camp hosts were super nice about us setting up at the wrong site and let us stay there since it was not reserved. But if you are looking for the backcountry sites, make sure to ask for clarified instruction on how to get there

Had a wonderful experience staying here! Loved being away from everything but i recommend bringing a wagon to carry your gear back to the campsite if you have alot! Beautiful woods and creek and loved have a boat launch close for when we wanted to go out and about in the boat. Will definitely be coming back!

Upon arrival we took a quick loop almost missing the trail sign (our fault) we were too excited to get started. My boyfriend, our Aussie and another couple and their Aussie shepherd mix found ourselves right in the middle of an adventure of a lifetime.
We unloaded the kayaks at the dock, which was very well kept and clean. The boys loaded them up while us girls loaded the gear and got ready to back pack it with the dogs.
We brought radios to communicate with the guys to make sure they wouldn’t go too far up the river.
Make sure you follow the signs, pack accordingly and if you can’t pack in and pack out then try the primitive grounds that still offer an amazing chance to be secluded but have the ability to drive in and drive out.

Highly recommend it and Cody was the best checking in and was super personable and went above and beyond to make sure we had all the information we needed before heading out.

Sites were clean but if you have the option being an extra bag to help out! So much nature and wildlife, and beauty in seclusion. It’s a great adventure for those willing to send it!
Stay Wild Friends!

Beautiful campground, and tent spots are right on the river. Got there after dark, but was able to find the spot fine. Just wished I knew how close to the boat launch I was- the launches started at 4:30am!
