We reserved for Labor Day weekend as all campsites were already full. It was great to be right by the river and though chilly the water was super clear. Duane cleared the brush for the campsite that day (we booked last minute) and cleared a bigger patch ne following day. There’s some sandy areas which make the ground soft for sleeping. The site was pretty private, compared to other packed campsites, but there was (nice) RV campers across the river. No one could cross and bother you, but you could easily see each other. Overall quiet and interaction free. There’s a great gas station down the road for any drinks or little snacks too. Close to East fork hiking, which has a lot of great hiking trails. Overall a great time and would recommend to anyone!
