Overall Rating
We were at Wheeler Gorge just as pandemic guidelines were tightening. Only one site in five or six was occupied, so it was very quiet. There are vault toilets but otherwise no services whatsoever, you’ll need to pack everything in. The lower loop is one way and some sites like ours (68)required backing around a 135 degree turn, which we couldn’t do without using the vacant adjacent site as the road is narrow and lined with boulders. Some sites are entirely private, others blends right into each other. Other sites have easier access. Some sites are adjacent to the highway, others have beautiful views of the creek or gorge. Zero cell phone reception, TV or WiFi, no water, dump station or power. There’s a very short nature trail; any other hiking means leaving the sites by car.
