Great Site!

This is a great site, much like the nearby Rim Campground. Well maintained, but busy. You can definitely hear your neighbors, so if you're looking for a bit more solitude, I'd check out 9350 bit down the road. But if you're okay with the people, this a great site, very close to Woods Canyon.
