Nice campsite. Easy walk from the road, couple of narrow wooden bridges to cross the brook. We rode bikes to this site. A little maneuvering to get the bikes through the trees and across but manageable. Nice location, 2 to 3 flat areas for tents along the brook. You can hear the busy road but eventually the sound of the brook drowns it out. Plenty of fallen branches around the area for fire.

Campsite showing the fire pit next to the brook. This is the larger bridge, looking towards the road where the entrance is.This is the path that leads towards the road/entrance.
