    Solid campground. Not a lot of space for a ton of visitors, but if you are paddling by, it works. Free of cost, and included are little roof areas so you don't "need" to setup a tent.

    Dayton Dam's campground is sweet. It's right up next to the waterfall, and has firepits, as well as little wooded shelters/ They aren't full cabins, but like 3 walled screen houses that you can tent in. Lots of bugs though.
