“Phenomenal getaway campground ”

Overall Rating

Nirvana: No cell coverage, no power or water for big rigs. Boondocking for camper vans, small trailers or tents. The most private sites I have ever been to at a campground- rhododendron bushes just keep everything private. Main negative is the bath houses need continuous showers but the temps are good. You truly are away at this place. Good hiking and mountain biking from the campground.

Deb would stay here again
