We had an awesome time at Red Bridge Campground & ANF. We reserved sites 60 + 61. Site 60 was nice and grassy, offering a cozy spot for tents. Site 61 wasn't grassy and in fact was a little rocky (making it tough to get tent stakes in the ground), BUT it was about 30 feet from the amazing, beautiful reservoir, which made it all OK. :) The plenty of trees surrounding the site allowed for us to hang a dog runner line & some hammocks. It was pretty up-close and personal to site 62, which also has a small trail to the water. Our neighbors were cool, but next time we go with friends, we'll try try book 61 + 62 for proximity and privacy. We also took advantage of the North Country Nat. Trail, which was BEAUTIFUL and a great, challenging hike!

Site 61.The water was wonderfully warm, but refreshing. Later that evening, the sun set perfectly between those hills and later that night, the stars were bright & clear.Here's the path from the reservoir, looking toward site 61.View of the reservoir from site 61.
