"Very pleasantly surprised "

This is a heckuva state park, and we only saw a small part of it. Many of the sites are not level and not long enough for more than a van. Our site had the water and electricity hookups on opposite sides, somewhat awkward. But the TREES! Huge and... Read more

"It’s a parking lot. People will steal your stuff."

Camping was not allowed in the grassy areas with shade because of possible rain, so we went for space 5, close to the dumpsters, because: 1. The electricity was off at site 3, and there were yellowjackets in the electrical box at site 2; 2. 5... Read more

"Cheap"

Gravel parking lot adjacent to one picnic table and fire ring, numerous hunters coming and going during hunting seasons; unknown persons off and on all night. Hiking trail closed during hunting season but should be beautiful.

"Quiet, peaceful "

Pretty deserted late November/early December because water is turned off. Restrooms and showers closed. Great for those needing only electricity as there are few campers.

"Peaceful"

Quiet, totally shaded, friendly camp hosts. Most sites offer little privacy but 17 is almost completely screened by vegetation, though it’s suitable for vans or small rigs only. Clean restrooms with ample hot water. Firewood $7 a bundle.

"Excellent "

No kidding, this campsite is 100 yards long, totally secluded, has two picnic tables, a fire ring, and bear proof storage. Pull through drive is paved and level. Aspens on all sides so it’s shaded early and late. Far enough away from other sites... Read more
