Camping with Littles

This campground was absolutely amazing! The sites were spread apart, there was plenty of shade, and there were lots of rocks for Littles to climb on and explore. The vault toilets were clean and well maintained. The single sites are $8 a night.

Amazing Place

  Let me start off by saying I made it to this spot in my Kia Niro with its front wheel drive. Not the worst dirt road I've encountered but very steep in some parts and I would not recommend going to this site in the snow unless you have 4 wheel drive, snow chains and experience. I didn't go in the snow but I could imagine. One slip and you're in serious trouble. That out of the way, this place is GREAT!

  On the drive up you go through a sleepy little town half way up the mountain, the views along the drive are stunning. Bring plenty of supplies and know its about a 40 min drive each way to get more.

   Lots of wildlife in the area, was a little concerned about bears in the area as it looked like they had some scratching posts right around our campsite (pictures posted) but didn't end up seeing a one.

   May be pretty tight for a larger RV as sites are pretty small. Vaulted toilets were very well maintained. I will go back!


P.S. Don't forget, always leave the area better than you found it!

            LEAVE NO TRACE!

Remote campground

I love this campground because it's off a dirt road, quiet, and small. Mostly for tents, small groups, or 4x4's. There is a clean vault tiolet with a garbage receptacle. Rv's could get stuck.
