There are three river sites. This is #2 and requires a moderate to difficult descent on rope stairs and through shallow river water to the site. No river portage required. Campsite NOT available if the water is too high. 

This is a beautiful, secluded campsite. It accommodates 2-3 campers. No bedding provided. 

The River Sites are super unique in part because one never finds a campsite that close to a river. With the luxury of camping on a river comes the responsibility of being extremely mindful of your impacts. These three sites are right on the river bank and about as close to sleeping in a river as you can get without being on a raft. It is, however, especially sensitive to human impact so being fully knowledgeable about the 7 Leave No Trace Principles allows use this site. If not, then you really should research it, especially as HipCamp guests follow a strong nature ethic.

Your LNT and Wilderness ethic most be sharp given the close proximity of water. NO HUMAN WASTE! You must use the chemical toilets. 

You provide tents, tent footprint (tarp), lights, sleeping bags, food, insect repellant, wood, and other stuff. There is an outdoor , hot water shower and the river (NO SOAP of ANY KIND IN THE RIVER. CARRY WATER 5 FEET AWAY FOR THE WATER, LATHER UP AND RINSE ON THE SHORE)

NO CHARMINE FLOWERS! Peeing is fine away from trails and tent sites. Ladies, do not leave your TP behind, buried or otherwise. NO DEFECATION EXCEPT at the Latrines, no matter your LNT expertise.

Less interesting details;

1. Car park is 10-15 minute walk from River Sites. For belhop service, stand at a mirror and meet your sherpa.

2. You take your recycling and trash with you off the land or take it to the house and give us $5 to deal with it. Micro-trash (like a tiny piece of tin foil) is also trash (like big nasty car tire).

Amazing experience. Everything is much better than advertised and the campground is beautiful. Even in the hottest time of the year it was so refreshing to be in the creek. The host is 10/10, super nice and hospitable.
