It's not exactly a destination, and therein lies the charm of the place. "Who would go there?" keeps the punters away. That, the skanky Porta Potties, fierce wind, unrelenting sun and lacking in usable shade, nobody is their right mind would want...
There are full hookup sites for the RV set, but we stayed in a "dry" site. The sites are spaced pretty well and have a decent table and fire ring. We camped in early Spring, so the hills were still green. Later on, when the hills turn brown, I...
Not only are the sites close together, they are REALLY close together.
And your neighbors may be (what I refer to as) "the Camping Homeless". You're only allowed to stay for 14 days, and guess what? There are plenty of people doing just that....
It’s alway cold and windy here, except in Summer, when it’s hot and windy. But it’s location is convenient and its only $20 ($18 for us geezers).
Even better if you have an RV. This site probably wouldn’t be fun in a tent.
Oh, and pit...
Wonderful location! Reservations can be hard to get, so we went in March during the week. The site itself is dull, but the view magnificent. Much to watch, much to enjoy.
In early March, the weather was trying: Windy and cold interspersed with...
We saw beaver, pelicans, swallows, cormorants, Canada geese, turtles, gulls, pigeons and the occasional fishermen.
Train on the other side of the river comes by every so often, so bring earplugs. Pit toilet is odor-free.
The windmills should have been the first clue. Everything is perfect, but when we were there, it was really windy. Check it out; apparently it is not so windy.

Odd but nice. Odd because the sites are unnumbered and in random spots. Clean pit toilet, water, bear-proof dumpsters. Next to a lightly-traveled road. Sites have table and fire pit, but no water at individual sites. Campground seems mainly...
This is a well below average USFS campground which we chose only because the nearby State Parks were filled up. One night was plenty.
Pluses: $10 a night, $5 with the old fart pass. Cleanish pit toilets, very few mosquitoes, water (but not at...
It’s everything that you want from a campsite, but FREE!
Spotless campsite, nearly empty, quiet, lotsa shade, cleanest pit toilet that I have ever used.
