Terrible!! Initially, we missed the turnoff as it's not makes at all. As far as the spot itself, Maybe if you were canoeing it'd be great but for walking, this place was the worst!! There are thorny bushes everywhere, dust comes up wherever you step and you're constantly getting whacked in the face with tree limbs and dry brush as you walked. The paths are not well pushed down and at one point come so close to the river I was a little worried my kids might slip and fall in. We'll never be back. What a waste.

Had a great time. Me and some friends headed to the pack river store grabbed some sandwiches and cruised across the street under the bridge to launch our kayaks, and canoe. From the store out to the highway where we had a second vehicle staged it took us about 4.5 hours, keep in mind this was more of a float trip with many stops. Great scenery, wildlife, etc. be warned water is a bit chilly this time of year(April 20) I found that out the hard way on a new small kayak!!

The Pack River flows through a tranquil green valley with small side ponds further downstream. There weren't any other people canoeing the day we went, it is lightly used in general, except maybe for fishing. We saw a moose near the take-out. Treat yourself to a burger at Buck and Edna's, about ten miles up the Pack River from where the pavement ends.
