“Amazing ”

Reviewed May 26, 2018

Overall Rating

We were heading to San Diego and wanted a place to camp, this was amazing. We drove are wagon up the road without trouble but roads were super washed out lots of bumps and tight turns that would be harder for a lot of bigger vehicles. We came through in May so it was a little cooler at the altitude (5,000'+). There is plenty of wood fo... more

“I am coming back again!”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

Overall Rating

This a great little spot. Only a few places to setup but I doubt it's crowded often. There are a few people that come up to see the view but everyone was really nice.

“Difficult to get to, but absolutely wonderful”

Reviewed Feb 18, 2016

Overall Rating

I'm giving this one 5 stars from me, in spite of the difficulty of getting up the mountain and the times that there are trash, etc. left from previous campers. Everything else about it is absolutely amazing. I've stayed here multiple times now, and I'm bound to do so again in the future! You absolutely need 4WD/AWD and some higher c... more

“The Man”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2018

Overall Rating

The road out was bumpy. I did it in my prius and made it to the top but def sketch. It is pretty for sure so def recommend that. My only frustration is with the man. Rangers came and asked for my permit and kicked me off and said they could give a citation and ran my info. Just sucks that we cant simply enjoy nature for what it is but ... more
