Great river access, found a spot all the way in the back that was super private. Overall, great stay!

This place was everything we wanted and more! Super private (in mid November), right on the river, and plenty of space. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for 8 nights. And the host, Mickey, was super friendly and brought us a fire ring and picnic table, exactly to where we needed it. He also even brought us some wood that they had cut up.

With family only 40 minutes away from this gem, we will definitely be back!

This campsite was much better than I expected!!!
It was private yet very spacious. We were lucky enough to stay right in front of the river. It was easy to get to and the grounds were kept clean.
Would definitely come back to Smooth Rapids!
