“Amazingly beautiful and tranquil location with great swimming”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2015

Overall Rating

This has got to be the best National Forest campground experience I have ever had. The campsites where beautiful, most along a creek, superbly taken care of and with lots of character. Facilities are very nice, and there is an amazing small lake to swim. Despite the elevation, the water temperature was just perfect and the sandy beach very well maintained. My only complaint is that ground at the campsites are covered with course sand. Gravel would have been much more preferable.

The campground is in a very remote location and there is absolutely no cell service, but please don't let either of these deter you. I wish we had spent more than one night here.

Unfortunately we had a schedule to keep and in my hurry to get everything ready I neglected to take any pictures.
