We felt very fortunate to find the spot. We we're just a few hundred feet from the river and less than a thousand feet from where we had to park. it is such a gorgeous area and very private. There are only three campsites there, and we happen to just be there by ourselves for the two nights we stayed. Thank you Abi!

Campsites were all well-maintained and level. The outhouse was exceptional. And the scenery is great to explore!

Just be prepared for the walk up and down the hill to the car.

Would come again!

Great location with excellent river access. Short hike to waterfall jump at Frenchmans Hole. Highly recommend. One fire pit for three campsites is a little less than ideal but otherwise great facilities.

We absolutely loved our stay at Abi's site, what a special spot! We were at site 3, not right on the river but you could still hear it and it was a short walk away. We had to end our trip early so we were only there one night but hope to be back again. This was my first Hipcamp experience and I screwed up the process a lot and Abi couldn't have been nicer and more communicative - and patient!

Wonderful! My husband and two elderly dogs stayed for two nights. We ended up being the only ones there and it was so peaceful! We stayed at the site with the fire pit which also had a large grate for cooking. The privy is in excellent shape and doesn’t smell! Walking distance to a nice private part of the river that you can easily swim around in and explore with waterfalls.

Such a beautiful spot. Great for families. Good workout on the steep path from the car to the sites. Privy was super clean and well built. We all loved the waterslides: little and big kids alike. Just a short walk from Frenchman's hole for an exhilarating cliff jump.

This is a really cool camp spot, right next to a beautiful river. We had a great relaxing stay, and it's fairly easy to get to. While it's not a super long walk to get to the camp spot from where you park, I would recommend only bringing as much as you need to limit trips back and forth to the car, as it's a decent little uphill. Again, it's really not a far walk by any means, but it gets tiring if you're lugging heavy stuff back and forth. A couple of people showed up randomly during our stay. One person refilled supplies for the outhouse, and another came by just to say hi. Both friendly, but slightly unexpected. Otherwise, we loved our stay!
