Really enjoyed! The site was clean and the reserved sites were pleasantly private. Despite lots of kids and full campsite, it was super quiet in the evenings which was lovely. Great spot for kids (large playground and bmx track). Floating down the river was amazing....More

You can swim, hike, or simply enjoy nature by relaxing. There's a bit of history with the old railway bridge and mine shafts in the hillsides. Do a bit of bird watching, and perhaps even see deer wandering about in the green surroundings.

Nice campground, the reserved area adds some privacy but can still see the neighbors. Non reserved section is more like a parking lot, would not stay there. Lots of facilities, showers, flush toilets, water, ect. The best park of the campground is the river. River,...More
