We park empty trailers on south end of camp site.
If you like to keep your boat on trailer at night, you can park it by your camp site.
Bring some fire wood if you have room in back of your truck, TI has fire wood but they charge for it.
If your new to boating on the Miss. and St.Croix rivers, ask around for some one that you can follow.
It's marked well, but easy to get into wing dam's or lose sight of marker buoys.
If you have never been thru a lock, also ask about it. Pretty easy if you know what to do.
