Parking in open field was fine. Fairly quiet even though conveniently close to the highway. Directions were unclear. Entrance was next to a 5th wheel, not an RV. Needs a sign at entrance. Tried calling the number provided but nobody picked up.

Great spot, it’s a big open field, lots of room to park multiple rvs. We couldn’t find our site marker so we just picked a spot. My boys loved being right on the river. We fished, kayaked and paddled around. We saw lots of birds, an Osprey caught a fish right in front of us and we saw a mama moose with two babies!! There’s a farmstand right across the street we bought some baked goods and veggies. Loved it!
