Very easy access with a great setting to have a picnic and see the lake. We walked down to the dock and then continued on our journey through the park.

Camp is very clean and well maintained. Hiking into the old growth forrest on well marked trails was a joy. I will return.

Campground was clean and quiet for being nearly full. Lakeside spots are really close together and don't have much of a view, unless you have a tent and can get right down to the water. The trailer sites are up closer to the road. We...More

So this is the kind of campground I dream about. Densely wooded, green, ferns, moss, secluded, streams, lake, did I say densely wooded? The trees are huge and literally there are several above your head at any time in the campground. The lower side says...More

What are some of the most secluded, walk-in sites along the river? Or, if there are private car camping sites, which sites are they? We'll be heading up in July and would love to have a really quiet spot! Don't mind carrying a few things into camp.
