Perfect private getaway spot
This site was perfect and private. Just what we were looking for. Fun trails for the kids and we enjoyed finding frogs and crayfish by the river. Highly recommend!
Quiet, serene, labor day friendly
We finally found a campsite with privacy, woods, and remoteness! Previously we spent all our camping time at state parks, which are too cookie-cutter for our tastes. I liked the low firepit, the site was flat and clean, ample shade, and the wood was sorted from kindling to logs! Would definitely camp here again!
The toilet was an interesting experience, but it worked!
