“Beautiful view, too many biting flies ”

Reviewed Jul 22, 2018

Overall Rating

Easy to find with the Campendium app. Road is very narrow in spots and a camper bigger then 20-22 ft will not fit in the actual camping spots. There is an open meadow where you can camp, but that has no toilets or picnic tables. And the horse flies during the day was insane.

“Ok.”

Reviewed Jul 05, 2017

Overall Rating

We tent camp and the spots weren't well suited for tents....little flat ground and even less shade. Very remote..no stores for gas and food for almost an hour drive or more from camp site. Road is drivable but must drive slow for very long way...takes forever. Water was beautiful and clean but freezing. Nice for small to medium RVs.... more

“Long drive but not secluded”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2017

Overall Rating

I was a bit disappointed at the number of monster sized rigs and ATVs running about. No trash service or water, no cell service on Verizon, 40 plus minute drive to a truck stop, an hour or more to groceries. On the way in we met a guy who had been turned away from the main camp area. He had a fifth wheel about 24 feet long. He said ... more

“Waaaay out there, but worth it”

Reviewed Oct 17, 2016

Overall Rating

I rolled onto the dirt road about 830pm, and it took me about 45 minutes to navigate the dirt 10 mile road and it's charming potholes, and when I pulled in (lower loop) I just pointed myself towards a fire ring and called it a night. The next morning I was pleasantly surprised to say the least! It was rainy morning, and the pup and I j... more

“Remote with hot spring pool”

Reviewed Sep 07, 2015

Overall Rating

During the 10 miles of the scenic but wash board dirt road, we really began to wonder if the hot spring was worth the drive. But when we finally got there, we were happily surprised at the beautiful setting with cool stream and open area to camp. There are some designated sites, but there is plenty of room to park if the "sites" are ta... more
