We had a fantastic weekend camping at Burkes and canoeing the Russian River last weekend!
The camp ground has a really cool set up -- it consists of several levels of flat camping areas admist enormous trees with a view of the Russian River. Most (or maybe all) of the camping sites have a fire pit and picnic table. There are also bathrooms and showers.
We had great weather and took our time canoeing -- it took us about 5 hours. There were sandy beaches to stop and eat lunch, and several rope swings along the way. The river is beautiful, and there's a bus at the take-out that takes you back to Burkes.
The staff was super friendly and helpful. They greeted us when we arrived and made sure we had an excellent time. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a fabulous canoeing/camping experience! I will definitely be going back!
