Long Description:
The boat ramp at the campground is actually two wide separate ramps, each possibly wide enough for dual launches. The more southerly one has a dock, but the north one is dockless. Toilets, parking and other facilities are available nearby in the campground.

A large campground with 33 sites, including group sites, this is a great wilderness campground, on a little used paved forestry road. It is open from Memorial Day through Labor day. We passed by in April and had the road to ourselves, but I imagine it's somewhat busier in the middle of the year. Full information for the campground, from the USDA website, is below.
