Report: Beautiful campground. We stayed 3 nights in May 2001 (11,12 & 13). Fee is now $10/night which seems a bit much since the water was heavy with iron and sandy. This may just be because it was early in the season. Could hear US 24 highway noise. Great hiking on many FR roads North of campground.
