Great campsite by a creek

We spent two great nights at Deadman Campground.   It's a nice, quiet campground pretty far up into Sonora pass.

Many campsites had RVs, but there were a few tent campers as well.  There are three vault toilets that were clean and had minimal odor.  There are a few water spigots throughout the campground and the water tasted fine.  The camp hosts sell firewood.

The campsites on the outside side of the road have a lot of shade, and the few on the inside have a lot of sun.  The campsites are pretty big.  

We came on a Friday in September, and the campground was full by 12:30pm.
