  • An incredible drive. You can pull over at any time and check out the scenery. We don't fish, but almost everyone there was fishing!

  • We LOVED relaxing by the river and enjoying a bite! We are bringing a group back from out of state, because it was so peaceful!

  • It’s very beautiful here. We love water, and enjoyed being right next to the river for the whole drive. Lots of climbing (I’ll have to come back for that), and some friendly humans were rafting down the river. The colors are incredible. The road was dirt gravel, and pretty bumpy at times. Our minivan was shaking a ton, so 4WD is preferable. Plenty of fishing, we saw a ton of that, although I’m not a fisherman myself. It wasn’t as crowded as I thought, possibly because of the $8 cash fee to get in (you need cash). We, of course, don’t use cash because we don’t engage in nefarious activity, so we had to backtrack about a mile and a half to get to an ATM. Highly recommend. Next summer, we want to do some camping here.
  • The road is narrow, with 3 tunnels, and somewhat washboarded, but you should drive slowly anyway. It's a beautiful drive. We stopped along the road and enjoyed the river and water rushing by. We didn't do the hike.
