We were happy with this spot and it had everything we hoped for... privacy, water access and some room to ride ATVs. It was easy to find and easy to pull a large camper to the sites (road was recently graded). The host left us to ourselves after greeting us on the way in. The perks include the picnic table/bench, fishing pole & gear, water hookup, garbage, and site being 20 min from Salida. There’s a nice fire pit but we couldn’t use it due to the fire ban. While the site is close to a neighboring property, we didn’t see or hear anyone aside from some fishermen on the water. Great site for a no-frills camping getaway.
