“Beautiful forest camping”

Reviewed May 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We had a lovely weekend at Dairy Springs in our A-frame camper. The site wasn't the most level, but we were able manage it by stretching the capabilities of the post/levelers. Our site, 12, was across a small creek bed (dry at the time) from the one group camping site, which was happened to be full of boy scouts. Not the quietest camping experience we've ever had, but not unexpected from a popular camping destination. All of the reservable sites appeared reserved online (we got the last one), but the non-reservable sites were practically empty (at least pre-Memorial day.) Each site had deep fire pits and picnic tables, but no BBQ stubs on site. We had a little trouble cooking over the campfire in our dutch oven and had to build the fire pretty high, we'll be buying a dutch oven table so we don't have to cook directly on the ground or in the fire pit (too much ash in the bottom from previous fires had choked out the coals) next time. The site is semi-primitive, with faucets, trash, and pit-toilet outhouses located every few sites. There are no showers in the campsite, but the Mormon Lake RV Park/Lodge a few miles down the road had public pay showers and laundry if you needed them. The forest was beautiful, with a nice drive up along Mary Lake, and we enjoyed great star viewing at night. During the day, we went down to the village, had lunch, pet the horses, and then explored some of the backroads in the area. It did get very cold at night, dropping quickly after sunset, so be prepared. T-Mobile cell phone service was not available at our site, although our Verizon Jetpack did show one bar, we didn't have service activated on it so we can't confirm if it was "real" service or not. We got a few hits of Over The Air TV from our little antenna but couldn't get the signal long enough to actually watch anything. Overall, we had a nice visit and will very likely return again.
