We had a great time here. The neighbours are wonderful, the river is gorgeous. Swimming in the river was a bit of a hard time with the current in the middle, but as long as you strap the kids up with life jackets they can walk back on the bank. Canoeing and kayaking are great there. Fishing I’d say the mouth of the river we had some luck, but not much, probably time of year though to be honest. Everything is pretty fantastic. -David & Rachelle (Aug. 2019)
