It’s a great little campground and really scenic but it’s literally beside the road, so it loses a star for noise. We’re driving a van so our parking options were a little limited here. This campground is definitely more suitable for tent campers because most sites are not accessible by car. Each site had a fire pit. Ours had a pile of what appeared to be strange burning materials next to it, like bamboo curtains and insallation? So there’s some trash around, but there was a trash can. And it sits right on a really pretty stream and the noise from the water is almost loud enough to drown out the sound of the road. There is one bathroom but it was locked while we were there. We stayed on a Monday night the first week of April and there was still snow on the ground so I assume it’s off season. When we arrived late afternoon there was no one there but a couple campers pulled in after us. We had zero Tmobile service. I would stay here again, but arrive earlier if it’s peak season.

Lovely wooded area with stream going through. When I was parking, I looked up and saw a large red fox in the stream. When she/he saw me he took off but it was a thrill. Fire pits and standard picnic tables. CONSTRUCTION going on so busy with trucks 4/16. Loved it anyway.
