This was a fun campsite. A little tricky finding the road that lead to it but it was a nice gem. There wasn't many people there so it was easy to find a quiet site in the back. We were there in June so the water wasn't to bad. We hikes over the bridge and down to a little sandy area. I had little kids so it was safe enough considering the water is pretty fast. I do remember it being a pretty dirty campsite. Sounds silly but the kids were covered in dust and dirt.
