  1. Lloyd Krueger says:

    There’s lots of flies and yellow jackets in the campground. Need to take a rake to the area where you put your tent. Many rocks and boulders. Hard to find a flat area.

  2. Lloyd Krueger says:

    The campgrounds by the river are nice but day campers walk through your site to get to the river.

  3. Lloyd Krueger says:

    Really hot in July and August . Not all camp sites have shade.
