“Completely Check out from the world”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2017

Overall Rating

There is no cell service here. Forget talking to anyone. You can't hear anything. You can drive about 2 miles up the road to a viewpoint where I got LTE on AT&T, but you can't stay there. No Verizon of any kind. The road up is windy and narrow. I wouldn't have taken my trailer up it; however we saw a small 5th wheel and two class c's and one trailer about 20 feet long.

The campground is actually a $5 donation, not free. There's pit toilets and the sites are immaculate. So pay the $5 to support that. Most sites are secluded by trees and very private.

We went in late September and it was COLD. we did stay in our rooftop tent but still it got down to 29 at night. Be prepared.

There is an incredible hike near the visitor's center with trees older than Jesus, seriously.

“Night Sky is Amazing”

Reviewed Aug 02, 2017

Overall Rating

I stayed here a few years ago. I liked it a lot. The night sky was amazing. You are up in the mountains and there are some great views after a short walk. They hold night sky viewing events here periodically. It's a rather rustic type campground. There are vault toilets. The roads are dirt but are maintained pretty well. The sites are all dirt sites. You're in a dryer area here so the trees are the mesquite types. You can do some great hikes around the campground. The Bristlecone Ancient Forest site in nearby. Definitely, go for a hike there. You can see live trees that were going strong when Jesus walked the earth. I was inspired by the Bristlecones there that gave me a sense that humans are not the end-all and be-all of this world. These trees have seen a lot in their very very long lives. You can get a lot of solitude here. I am looking forward to another visit soon.

If you need great bathrooms, paved sites with hookups and lots of services, then this is not going to be a good place for you. If you are looking for views, solitude, great dark sky viewing and fun and inspiring hikes then this is a wonderful place. It's a little bit of ruffing it but well worth the effort.

It's a $5 requested donation site and I feel it was well worth the donation! There are tables and fire pits rings.
