Report: We were also there in July over the 4th holiday, we had a wonderful and relaxing time. The fish were biting, we ate trout every night, the climate was wonderful, the natural aspects are beautiful, and the people were very friendly.

Number of People Encountered: 50+ ppl
Recommend to a Friend: Not Recommended
Report: If you're looking for solitude and an uncrowded place to camp and fish, this is NOT it. I was there in July, during the week, and it was SO crowded! The campsites are very close to each other, the 'creek' was little more than a trickle. I will not go back here. Maybe this report will save someone a trip.
