The campground is North of Kettle Falls on the east side of the river. For those who enjoy wine, there is a nice organic winery just across the river named China Bend Winery. You can even use your boat and stop in and pick up a nice bottle of wine to end the perfect evening at your campsite.
Just come prepared for the mosquitoes! Make sure you have plenty of bug spray with you! We found a lot of mosquitos in the campground when we visited.
