“This place is truly a gem”

Reviewed 9/5/2019

Overall Rating

If you are looking for a quiet place with beautiful scenery, clean bathrooms, and no fees then this is the place for you. Getting to it might be a little challenging since the road is narrow, windy, and rugged. I wouldn't recommend this place to people with large vehicles. Unlike the dry and hot valley below, this place has lots of trees and a creek that keep it cool and keeps the bugs away, which is a good thing in the summer months. You have to cross the creek to get to the campsites, which have picnic tables and fire pits. This campground is right next to a trail head, making it a must for hikers.
