What a wonderful stay here!
I'm not much of a fan of camping, but I really enjoyed this campground. I loved how you are within nature, but it isn't too far of a drive from the 90. They sell firewood for $7, which was great since we only brought two piles. The RV campsites were amazing. When we arrived, we saw someone draw a rake image of a dog where the tent should go. Loved that little detail :). Also, the camp host was very kind! This campsite is right by the Franklin Falls "hike" (1.5 miles). I found it to be pretty quiet. The restroom was pretty clean. There aren't any toilet seat covers, but I don't think any normal campsite does. If you're debating if you should stay at this campsite, I highly recommend! Don't come here without a reservation though, because you're bound to get unlucky. It's $20 per night. It'll cost extra for extra cars (I think). Double check on their website! Will definitely be back :)
Beautiful area and nice campground
Pros: Beautiful area and nice campground with flushing toilets and friendly camp hosts. LOVED the two easy and beautiful hikes to waterfalls and natural water slides with trail heads within a short walking distance from the camp. River is within the campground and some sites are on the river side so kids can play in the water with you sitting in your chair on the shore.
Cons: Sites are not fully private. The majority of sites have one elevated 15x15 tent pads - so if you have multiple tents or a larger tent - this could be a challenge. There isn't space in most of the sites to have an additional tent outside of the designated tent pad. The campground is located in the forest between the interstate east and west bound lanes - so there is road noise. Sounds like the ocean until a semi hits the brakes. :) Mice visitors in 2 of our campsites - and they got into our friend's cars and one was on her arm in the bathroom at 0400! :( Our site did not have mice, but we also had a dog at our camp site as a deterrent.
