There was very little water at the falls, but the Fall foliage was beautiful and the falls were still pretty at 250+ feet.

We go camping here every year and have always had a great experience. It’s a great place to camp,hike,fish,bike,or just spend the day. The camping spots have water ,electric and some have sewer hook up. There are nice shower bathroom facilities.
