Great spot!

Stayed two nights and was a great area. Ended up getting a spot near the main road but overall was very quite. Insane views and just a unique area. Empire Ranch had potable water to fill up and there are a ton of vineyards within 20 minutes. Was super windy one day but definitely coming back.

Peaceful and beautiful

If you are looking for a place that is easy to get in and out of as well as peaceful and remote, this is it! There’s a few other campers here, but lost of space between sites so we can never hear them. Great space to walk the dogs around here. It’s gets a little windy at times and the cows can make…

Great trails

Hiked the 4.1 mile trail with 4 and 2 year old. It was a 3 hour adventure that felt like 5 different bikes bc of all the different landscapes the trail takes you through. Truly one of best hikes I’ve ever done. Only negatives of campsite were the shower water pressure and the unlevel site we had.

Amazing campground!

Exceeded expectations!! A moderate 4.6 mile hike after 16 miles on a dirt road. The hike up is BEAUTIFUL and not overly steep (but watch for snakes). The campground was great. We were the only ones there and used site 3. It was very secluded and had a nice big bear box and a nice fire ring. I would…

Great Place to Stay

There is a good mix of long term residents and travelers here. Good, clean safe place to stay with our son and two dogs. My son LOVED the swimming pool. Not a fancy resort, but a very kind, homey environment. I would stay here again.

Tranquility

We spent two nights at this amazing campsite. This campground offers 7 official and several unofficial sites that are scattered to assure privacy. Campground is primitive with no toilets or water so come prepared. Gorgeous 360 views of nearby mountains. Easy road access for low clearance vehicle…

Would definitely return

I came here maybe 4 yrs ago. I wasn’t a big hiker but I was young and in good shape. It was so hot and the trail was a little confusing at times. Not many people so if you’re looking for some good exercise and solitude this is for you. Passed a couple on the way up and only one other camp site…

Great State Park!

We stayed at this State park on 12/27/2020.  We were not able to visit the caverns as all tickets had been sold when we arrived in the morning!  Plan ahead and purchase tickets in advance online.  The RV park was fantastic.  Our site was W/E with a dump on exit.  The site was level with a asphalt…
