The beach on river right, just opposite French Creek is nice for camping, AND there's a great hot spring on the hillside up above. If that part of the area isn't closed off, it's well worth the rather steep hike up the hillside to the trail that leads to the springs--two of them, actually. One in a mine shaft, and one with a wooden tub in a stone hut.
