Perfectly good campsite (we stayed at site 2). It's secluded, has a nice fire pit and good spots to pitch tents. It's a good spot for birding, and there is plenty of hiking nearby or you can hang out by the river in Fries. James is very kind, welcoming, and accommodating.

The only downside is water. It is either a hike up the hill to James's house (he was more than willing to give us a bag full of bottled water) or down the hill and through some brush to the river.

very beautiful and peaceful property but my favorite part is whether your staying in the shelter or the campsite by the river you can still hear the sound of the river, and with just a short walk down to the river which makes it the perfect spot for some fishing or dipping in the water. even thought i did not get a chance to meet our host but kept in contact with us making sure we were well taking care of.

James was an excellent host. The wood shelter shown in the pictures is, however, closer to his house than anticipated. This wasn't a problem, and there is another site further from his house if it was. We were pleasantly surprised by the presence of a mini refrigerator and a lamp in the shelter. We also saw a bald eagle flying over the river!
