Morton, Washington - A perfect town to camp in

Just wondering - -

Has anyone else camped at Backstrom Park in Morton, Washington?
The tent sites are right on the Tilton River, $15, hot showers.
The little town has a range of services right there:
Grocery store, hardware store, cafes, coffee shop,
Motels, AirBnbs, library, even a movie theater.

And it's all within a few blocks - easily bikeable.
For me, it's the perfect small town to bike thru.
Anyone else been there?

No but it sounds great. Might be a fine spot for "spoke touring". Pitch the tent and settle for a few days, riding loops out of town and back. Way too far from Penn's woods but I'll bet I would really like it. We have very few towns in the northeast where there is camping in town. Connelsville, PA on the GAP is one. Really liked it there.

No, but it sounds like heaven to me. Reminds me of the Bike Camp in Twin Bridges, MT and a better version of the park in Noxon, MT (no shower there).
