Really lovely

Stars were amazing, the sites felt spaced out and private. I'd happily camp here again!

Beautiful Forrest with Spacious Sites

Dense ponderosa pine forest with lots of space to explore. Sites have space for multiple vehicles (extra cost) and multiple tents/campers. Only one water source and bathroom near the entrance so plan on a long walk or drive to use facilities if you are on the far end of the campground.

Great place to see wild horses

This is a great campground with a short drive off of hwy 260. The site is clean, secluded and well kept. We saw quite a few wild horses in the vicinity.
