Report: Easy to get to but pretty crowded. The group site is right next to this campground and we were mobbed by a friendly church group from Texas. Beaver ponds are super easy to fish - which may explain why they don't have any fish. N. Fork of the Arkansas is pretty rough and tumbling here - not many good runs.
