great overnight primitive camping

Primitive camping area was beautiful, and descending the bluffs to the river offers great riverbank wildlife spotting. Over two days I counted 17+ wild hogs in two different groups on the opposite riverbank. They ranged in size from large males to many small babies (maybe a few months old). Also saw deer, a blue heron, woodpeckers, countless cardinals, and 3 juvenile vultures (black) in a tree at the edge of my camp. They let me get very close to the tree they were in, and they were only about 20' up. The tree was on the edge of the bluffs, so i got a few semi-good pictures of them, including 2 of them when they finally did fly away. My third hike/first camping here. The low solitude rating is due to the fact that all evening into the night I was able to hear, sometimes very clearly, a live concert taking place somewhere near. The band was pretty good, though...
