RATTLE SNAKE CAMP GROUND IS WERE TO GO I

Written by 8BALLLDON  22-May-2009

Great Outdoors!!

I love this park. The campsites that I have visited are lightly used. I have stayed and fished at Rattlesnake campground. I have rarely seen another soul on any of my visits. It is like having the whole forest to myself.
