It has been a very long time since I was here, so I will try my best to remember. We had a group of six (4 adults, 2 kids) with 4 tents. We managed to get all of the tents in the site, but I remember that a couple of them were questionable at best. Fishing and swimming were good from the rock ledge in front of the camp. Having the rapids around the corner was a bonus.

Perfect spot for a hammock right at the waters edge. Good fire pit area. Enjoyed the ability to walk up up the shoreline easily.

huge site. ~15ft elevation above the water at the firepit and another ~15 in elevation gain up to the tent pads. one good bear bag tree and many bad choices. firepit seating was rotten but the best seats are on the rock edge right above the water. trails from the site north and east will get you shore fishing close to the rapids. you'll see a lot of traffic.

Landing can require a little work. Elevated sight with a great view back down river. Several excellent tent pads, & trails for exploration to boot. Lots of traffic likely.
