The tent camp spots are far enough apart that you aren't bothered in the slightest by other campers which was really nice. I'm not sure if they had gotten a lot of rain recently but it was a little hard to get into with my Subaru Legacy because the road was a bit rutted out. Not really a good place if you are traveling in a car. The site was decent though. Clean. And a big enough level area for a tent. There wasn't a fire pit or anything but just pull off sections. I would stay here again.

If you want to be a little adventurous, haul your rig a little further down the dirt road to the McDonald Creek Cultural Area. The road leading is is 4WD advised, but 2WD with good ground clearance can do it without too much risk. You will be rewarded with one of those epic spots just at the Cultural Area sign, entering the canyon.

Best accessed by a van or truck-camper, the campsite is large enough for a 27' trailer (I would not advise a Class-A though), but not large enough to turn it around once in. So practice those backing-up skills to get the trailer facing the correct way to exit. Two trailers in cooperation can have a great time squeezing in here and with the large yard and rocks to climb the kids can have a ton of fun (watch for those cow-patties).

Further down the road it gets a little tight going through the canyon, but with a little care it can be done.

You can expect some daytime traffic, both cars accessing the trail down the road and motorcycles exploring the area. It hasn't been too bad, usually with a dozen or so throughout the day, and all have been mindful of us camping here.

Verizon 4G signal just catches with 1-2 bars from here. Got a booster? It cranks in at 5 bars no problem.
