“Beautiful Campground ”

Reviewed 7/25/2023

Days stayed: 1
Site Number: 42
Overall Rating

This was a beautiful campground with a variety of sites. Our site was among the trees and we were able to get a level spot. Bathrooms were clean and had decent showers with nice, hot water. Was within walking distance to Johnston Canyon hikes and bar/grill. Free firewood although you pay $10/ night for the rights to having a fire and ring.

“Clean And Quiet Small Rig And Tent Camping ”

Reviewed 9/17/2022

Site Number: 114
Overall Rating

This was a great campground for small rigs (less than 26ft) and tents. Was not on full on our stay, Tuesday to Wednesday Sept 13th. Host said that it was the first time in a while they had not been full. Free firewood and showers. We had a nice stay! If you fit the size requirements I highly recommend!
