“Older - But Some Nice Sites”

Reviewed 9/14/2021

Nightly rate: $20
Days stayed: 2
Site Number: A9
Overall Rating

Second campground when heading northbound on the BRP. The RV loop has a mix of back-in sites and 'pull off' sites for larger rigs. Mostly level (unlike so many other BRP campgrounds). We were able to snag A9 (a reservable site that was open) which we think is one of the more private feeling sites in the campground with a huge yard.

No hook-ups, but dump station & water onsite - and flush toilets (no showers). We did get 'lucky' and have two neighbors who were generator dependent most of the day - one of the downsides of primitive sites.

We loved the hike here to the waterfall, although a bit strenuous (the longer route has a gentler elevation gain).

We had pretty excellent cellular service on the major carriers, and were able to easily get work done including uploaded larger YouTube videos over AT&T and Verizon while bonded.

“Nice little campground ”

Spent one night here while traveling home and to check out the waterfall. Was height of the camping season and couldn't find anything for reservations online, so we decided to just stop in and try to get a site. That wound up being no issue as there was only one other RV and one tent site being used aside from the host. It's obvious that at one time the campground was a popular destination, these days it's mostly day hikers going to the falls though. The grounds are mainly kept up pretty good though and the weather was nice and cool for the middle of the summer.
The main attraction is Crabtree Falls. The hike to it is worth the climb back up to the trailhead and is recommended.
