Handicap River Access:
In 2012 we were generously donated the time, money, supplies, and the personnel to design and build a handicap ramp to allow for everyone to be able to access the Toe River. Our ramp was provided by incredibly generous members of our community to benefit and aid Camp Funshine which is held annually at the Toe River Campground.
