I've been going to Lodgepole since i was a kid. It is a great place to camp. It has gotten a little crowded, but still very nice. If you want a good spot you neeed to make reservations 4-6 months in advance. you will have your choice of spots at this time. I usually go in july, and the river is very low at this time. All in all, a great place for a summer getaway..
