Kathryn was so warm and welcoming and the site was great. She has every little detail taken care of - coffee in the morning, grills to cook on, games to play, fire pits to enjoy, a list of local weekend activities, and more. The river is BEAUTIFUL, clean and deliciously cold. There are multiple cabin rentals and tent sites on the property. There are bathrooms and showers on site that are modern and clean. Other than the tent sites being very close to one another and the dogs roaming around free (we brought two of our own) we absolutely recommend. Thank you for having us Kathryn.

This was probably my favorite campsite to date, ever. It was very clean, quiet (even with a lot of people there), we ended up booking an extra night because we loved it so much. We panned and sifted for gold and gems in the river and had a great pull in/tent site. I’ll definitely bookmark this one to stay at again.
