Read: Russian River community seeks Solutions to Homeless & Loitering
River communities attract people for many reasons. We become tourist attractions because it's beautiful here. Water draws people to swim, boat, frolic and just enjoy. It also provides lovely places to hide in the bushes for privacy near a body of water that provides cleanliness and life support. Camping in the woods is either a vacation or a lifestyle. For many it's not a choice, it's a necessity.
