Very high off highway vehicle use. Kids on motor bikes back and forth on main road through campground. Campground closure very poorly posted. The CG filled up by Friday evening with people that didn't see the closure notice. The sheriff came by to inform us but didn't evict us. Beautiful area. Vault toilets. No water. Near the creek. No fee. No cell service with Verizon. I'll be back in a year.
