New central showers and toilets in center loop, def some nice pull in camping spots but i thought the loop along the river would have a view, nope blocked by trees. I hear good tubing if river is down and clear but they had 4in rain Wed. Other down side is its a deadend, so 9mi in and out. Id go again but prob would try Seneca Shadows first and get a spot with front row view of the rocks.

The neatest thing about Big Bend is its location(wich is also the worst thing about it. It's 4 miles just to get back to Smoke Hole Rd.). It's in the middle(mostly) of Smoke Hole Canyon and in the middle of a Big Bend of the South Branch.



This is the river at the upper right curve above when the water was at the top of the low water bridge we,ve stopped at. Excellent for boats, not so much for tubes.


The Bitches and Gravy campout was at Big Bend.


The campsites are are good size and seperated from each other pretty good. The whole campground is wooded.






Dixie was there too.


When the river is at normal summer levels you can go wading. Looking downstream. The campground is over my left shoulder.


Upstream from the same spot. The rapid in the photo above is to the right, up around the corner. The campground is on the right in the trees.

Great RR Lance!

Just out of curiosity, does the RS have an upright riding position or a forward leaning position like a sport bike? I see these for sale(relatively cheap) a lot.

Good job on the RR Lance, it looks like you covered everything except the chiggers.



Somebody come scratch my legs I'm dying over here.

They adjust but a forward lean to full sport bike / tron riding position.

Quit laughing, it ain't funny.
