“Close to everything, and traffic reflects that”
The road in is dirt, but in my low clearance vehicle I didn’t have an issue at all. It’s also super easy to find off the main highway (24).
The campground itself is pretty spacious and offers decent privacy between (most) sites. But the lodgepole forests don’t really buffer much noise if you have the ill fortune of getting loud neighbors (they do offer some adequate shade, though).
The campground offers access to both a wilderness and national forests with endless recreational opportunities, so you don’t really need to drive far for a good hike. But that’s where it gets tricky: this place is BUUUUUSY.
From OHV, jeeps, and RV/Campers to endless mountain bikers, fisherpeople, and hikers you’re lucky to have much actual peace and quiet. Even in the middle of the night you’ll have some OHV activity (I stayed S - Th and was woken up each night by some numbskull ATVer). If that doesn’t bother you, then you’ll dig this place.
The campground itself was pretty clean, but they have only one host (Dan, one of the kindest, most interesting people I’ve met on the road) to manage three campgrounds. So there are some details that get overlooked, but nothing that impacted my enjoyment.
No tent pads, but most sites are flat-ish so it wasn’t hard to find something that worked.
And no water, so bring your own!
Cell signal was one bar of Verizon LTE and even at that was in and out. I could make occasional calls, send some texts, but that was it.
