Beautiful place with well-maintained camping site. Not hard to find and look-out for the address number and gravel. Thank you Frank!

Although you need to traverse some dirt roads to get to frank’s spot, he was kind enough to come out and guide us when we got lost. In addition, the outhouse looks new and is well kept which was great.
And finally, the view of the stars and wildlife made our stay terrific. We would recommend this spot!
