Comments, Notes: Named waterfalls in this location: Bridge Rapid IV On Otter Creek There are more here but I have not yet seen them. Plans are to return.
Use to camp ⛺ there for free and went there recently and there were big rocks in front of the entrance of the camp sites leading me to believe that there not allowing anyone to camp there anymore! I was wondering why, can someone please tell me why this is?
When we were there there was folks there camping. So not sure if any camping rules changed.
