Campground Camping

There is a fish hatchery close by where you can see fish ranging from the little ones that will be released later to the large ones that are fed here and saved for some lucky kids on the kids fishing day. There is a path along the river that can be followed all the way into the little town of Camp Sherman or you might like to ride your bikes on the road that leads from Camp Sherman to all of the campgrounds.
