Great little campsite right on the river, right off the highway.

About 100 yards from the parking lot to the furthest campsite.

Gets pretty busy on the weekends, lots of fishermen use the area as river access.

There is NO TRASH PICKUP here. So, for the love of all things holy, please pack your trash out.
