As you can see, Fall season is beautiful there, so the weekends in September and October are usually booked solid, but there are first come - first serve sites available. We were there during the week before Halloween last year and the colors were in prime. You can also take a river ferry at Grafton that will take you into the countryside between the two rivers and take you north.
