“Beautiful Area”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites are well spaced and for the most part there is a modicum of privacy and the surrounding area is simply beautiful. There are some lovely family friendly trails in the area and plenty of places to get off the beaten path for the more adventurous hiker. We tried fishing and assume it is likely better earlier in the season. We wer... more

“Avoiding the Whittier Tunnel ”

Reviewed Jan 11, 2015

Overall Rating

We picked a site here and dropped the trailer rather than paying the additional toll for the tunnel and reducing the parking hassle in Whittier. It seemed like a newer forest service campground with the loop road and the site driveways paved. Sites are pretty close to one another and many are pretty tight, but they are separated by tre... more
