The sites are in 3 sections. The lower section adjoining the visitors center is flat. The second section is up a short steep hill. The first two sites are easy to get into. The others go up the mountain and back down would be difficult to climb into. l considered the decent back down the mountain dangerous and my rig s only 24 feet. The third section is even higher up the mountain and we did not go there.

I don’t consider this bad at all. The campground is closer to the bar of the mountain. The steep parts are higher up. There is one hill within the campground that is a bit steep but it is a short hill.

The lower campground loops by the stream are all flat and will accommodate larger rigs. When you cross the stream to the upper campground loops the road is pretty much up the hill to a tight turn at the top. The sites are smaller and graded level but you are walking a pretty steady incline in this section. Better for smaller rigs

Very!! steep. We did not camp up there but walked all around. There were large campers up there but you would need to be an experienced driver to negotiate the turns

It depends. The bottom loop is no problem. Very large rigs are in the larger sites in the bottom loop. They are near the camp store. The top 2 loops are pretty steep.
