“Great bike trail access, nice views, large sites”

Reviewed Nov 25, 2017

Overall Rating

The roads can be rough in spots, but going slow & easy, we were able to pull our 25' trailer up to a site with great views and almost right off the bike trails. Great variety of sites, in terms of size, views, shade, and tree protection - so a little something for everyone. The sites are well spread out & some take a bit of exploring to find, they're so remote. Plenty of gunshots can be heard in the distance, but far enough away to be noticed but not too bothersome. For the most part, very clean. But some of the sites closest to the trailheads were a bit trashed (someone even left some crushed glass at the start of one of the trails - what is wrong with people???). And someone was "kind" enough to paint a formerly-beautiful rock formation near one of the trailheads with graffiti. But other than that, a great place to stay, especially in the off-season when it's quiet. Call ahead, because they do close roads/trails when wet.
