The walk down and in to the site was certainly not easy if you are loaded with stuff, but the campsite is great. Thank you!

We had a great time staying at the Cormorant camp site at Chanslor Ranch. This camp site is nestled in the trees along the creek/river, and we had a lot of privacy. The walk to and from the parking lot (and closest porta potty) was about 5 minutes. It included a hill, but it wasn't a bad walk, and a small price to pay for some extra privacy - just plan nighttime bathroom accordingly!

We only stayed one night, so we weren't able to fully take advantage of the kayak and stand up paddle board, but we hope to stay for at least two nights in the future, so we can use them. That said, they are a great addition.

The only drawback is you currently have to walk through the Warm Springs campsites to get to Cormorant. This wasn't a big issue, just a little awkward. I suggest, in the future, cutting a side trail to Cormorant to avoid that.

Nice private site, but definitely a steep, dusty, 10-15 minute trek from the parking lot to get there, and a pain to have the only bathrooms all the way up at the parking lot. The site itself had a nice picnic table and fire pit, but bring your own way to keep food safe and away from critters (or be prepared to trek back and forth to the cars a lot). The river was also too low (almost non-existent) for any kayaking when we were there in late September, just something to keep in mind if that's what you're coming for!
