  • The campsite is beautiful. There was good hiking trails. There is also the water mill. The bathrooms are primitive but clean and well maintained. Lots of camping activities. Can be very muddy though. Make sure you have rain boots. Had a lot of fun!

At the other end is an open field and play area, as well as a bathroom that always seems clean. BBQ grill are also available.
