Myre-Big Island DNR

Stayed here in 2007 at the White Fox campground. There are some fairly private sites in this one. My stay was made very unpleasant for one night when some people showed up late, played music and talked loudly all night and then left. The trails were all nice to walk on and I enjoyed hiking here.

At backpack site #3
