Description

“Paddle-in camping” is also known as camping for badasses who go on multiple-day adventures by water, and take their gear (plus trash!) with them. If you’re one of the daring ducks that anticipates coming here, know that there is a one-night limit, charge of $5, and a max of 16 people allowed at one time. Stay to rest your head, leave bright and early for the river, and repeat!
