“Nice place, close to town”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2017

Overall Rating

We have stayed here a number of times on our way up & down 395. This is a large FS CG and there are a number of sites that will fit larger MH & Trailers, but not all of them are level or easy to get into, due to the number of trees right next to the road. Backing can be a challenge. Due to the record snowfall in 2017, this CG became FCFS and the only sites reserved in early June were for people moved from other FS CGs that had flooded. Old Shady Rest was taking reservations, but it is a much older park and doesn't seem nearly as nice or well maintained. Both Old & New Shady Rest are in walking distance to town & the Visitor Center. I would recommend unhooking your toad in the VC parking lot & then taking it into the CGs to find your spot first, then bring your MH or RV in as the roads can be narrow and it can get crowded in the summer, especially on weekends. We paid $11.50 per night using Senior Pass.
