Our campers may fish in the river, right from the campground if they wish, and on a lucky day will snare a good trout. Another popular spot for fisherman is the Chesterfield Reservoir, located about 30 minutes from the campground. We have seen great catches come back to the campground from that spot (no fish tales here!)
