“Quiet, semi remote camping.”

Reviewed Feb 12, 2019

Overall Rating

Stayed 4 nights at end of Jan. 2019.

Was basically deserted (was during shutdown, but trash and toilet was still serviced).

Only amenities is a (clean) vault toilet and bear-safe trash bins. USFS site states potable water available, but I couldn't find it.

Lots of signs about bears in area, but none personally sighted. Tents and pop-ups probably not a good idea.

Several retail shops 1 1/2 to 2 mi. north (gas, convenience, laundromat, small grocery, cafe, outfitter) so not as remote as appears while in campground.
