Gorgeous location for real....but no hook-ups, no cell coverage, extreme dust when dry, etc... really a high-end "boondocking" experience.

“Gorgeous, but a bit dusty.”

I did not list the campsite number because frankly, I forgot about writing it down. But you can't go wrong picking almost any site on the lakeside (Lost Lake Slough) for the view. Even the other sites are fine. This campground is well maintained and when we were there, the camp was great to us. The views are some of the best we've seen with what looks to be some very pristine lake and forest. I am no fisherman but was able to catch a rainbow trout and have him in the frying pan within 15 minutes of it being out of the water. There is great hiking here as well. Tow other lakes (Lost Lake and Dollar Lake) that you can hike to on a 3.0-mile loop.
At the time we were there, (June) they still had not turned on the water spigot, so check before you go.
All of the roads and sites are dirt. They had not received rain in quite some time so everytime someone drove by, the dust really kicked up as it did when it was windy. The only reason we left, was because of the dust. It got into everything. We did not receive cell coverage on either AT&T nor Verizon.
