Sanding camp sites but close to river for easy access. You just never can guess the level of the water in the river. It tends to be lower than not every time I’ve been.

Is this still closed for overnight camping?


Hi Laura, did you end up going there? Is it closed? by Bek C.


I didn’t but am assuming it’s still closed based on the lack of activity on bere by Laura S.


I go there all the time. You can no longer camp at O’Brien state crossing. Access to the river front for camping with a car has been blocked off. Beautiful for lunch, swimming and walking but not camping. by neomi a.
