We stayed 3 nights over Easter weekend. The weather was really nice, but the ferry was closed. Site 10 had lots of space and wood was plentiful for fires. The riverbank was very steep and muddy so casual fishing from the bank wasn't very good. There were 4 portos that were fairly clean with the normal spider webs, but there were also hornets inside during the day. As soon as we started putting up our tent, we noticed ticks everywhere! Most were lone star ticks, but there were also deer ticks. Pulled off at least a dozen off the dog, a handful off me and a few off the baby and the wife. Off Deep Woods Max (40% deet) worked decently, but we ended up limiting the baby and dog's time outside of the tent.
