Davidson River Campground is situated smack dab in the middle of many trail launch points, making for an ideal choice for those of us who cringe at the sight of an unlaced hiking boot—because yours are always double-, triple-knotted and ready for a trek. Before and after your journey, take advantage of the drinking water, showers, and flush toilets on site—and don't forget to squeeze in a little fishing and swimming while you're here!

Nice amenities and campground staff. Great activities for kids and entire family during peak season. Fantastic location if visiting the area waterfalls.

Online reservations move fast. I am not sure how fast their drive up spots move but this is a popular spot. Car camping is allowed. Great facilities. Feels like the glamping of camping. Love this place.
