Just speaking from my experience last night, this place is horrible. Especially if you stay at any of the 1 through 13 campsites. They all hug the highway. So, if you like sleeping next to a highway, then this place is for you. I'm sure the other sites Down The Gulch are much better. My site was, what seemed to be, right on the freeway... more

This is our favorite campground. Sites are fairly private. It is quiet and peaceful. Hate to leave, can’t wait to come back.
