The gap is good for fishing or camping in a camper. If you go further to rifle falls the camping ig really good,fills up quick. It has some trails with great views but not hard at all. The one will take you to the top of the 3 falls and theirs caves ect. that you can explore. not a big campground but nice. Theirs also another campground down the road just pass the fish hatchery(fun,great for kids) its a first come first serve. But its a beautiful place much more to choose from and theres the ice cave and really good rock climbing. The kids love it here.
