Bird watchers will enjoy the variety of species available in this area, and the hillside overlooks of Thompson Park make for a picturesque spot. If you're up for some hiking, be sure to check out the Narrow Gauge Trail, which begins right on the campsite and leads up to an old railroad grade.

This campsite was an absolute gem! Just off the highway, but tucked away enough to not hear any road noise and have complete peace. I planned to be there for 2 days and extended to 4. It was wonderful. Clean spots, also private spots. I felt comfortable changing in the openness of my spot because there were enough trees to deter any onlookers. Vault toilets and drinking water provided. Trash collection, as well! Which I loved, having been on the road for a week prior to this stay.
