This campground is on a very expansive lot. It's close to the river, but features plenty of hiking and water trails throughout. Camping is decent, but it's nearby a hunting area and boating docks, so a constant stream of traffic and noise awaits you on weekends. Overall, I liked it, but had slightly higher hopes for solitude.
