  1. Samantha says:

    No dock or anywhere to keep your boat for camping unless you want to have to take it out every night. Was told by one employee to anchor off in the middle of the river and swim back to shore but even still the boat could be towed away. Many other issues that made our whole vacation very unpleasant.
