Beautiful river site

This is a really beautiful and secluded site right on the Sunday River. We were able to carefully ford the river and climb up into a beautiful pool to swim. The space is great for feeling immersed in nature and away from other people.

Luckily, the host’s friend was finishing up the (new!) privy when we arrived and he helped us find where to set up and where to swim. He was super kind. Without him, I would’ve been very unsure if we were in the right place. The site could benefit from more signage and directional information. Also good to note that this is not a drive-up camp site. You will need to haul your things up and down a hill — so pack accordingly.

Indeed we are just getting up and running, so more signage will be forthcoming!
