Yeah! This is the name of the campground I was trying to remember early in this thread. For those of you not schooled in the pronounciation of the names of french Indian tribes it is prounounced "grow von". One of those funny names that doesn't sound much like the spelling, like Worchester, Ma is pronounced Wuster.
This campground is on the low end of campsite maintainance but is open with lots of room between neighbors. When we were there moose were hanging out by the river, which is in walking distance, and casually strolling through the campground. Plenty of buffalo in the area too. There is one campground loop which is a generator free zone.
