Close at Dos Picos

This camp ground is so well maintained. The area is tidy, the bathrooms are clean and well stocked and most importantly the Ranger enforces quiet time. I am not a fan of being woken up at 2 am by a drunk group of campers. The walking trails are clear and wide and there’s lots of room for kids to ride their bikes and scooters. The pond is pretty. We were able to get some great pictures of the dragonflies. They were huge! There are a lot of squirrels, so like every place you need to keep your camp site cleaned up and food stowed. The only things I would call out here are the camp sites are very close together. We’re in a 10x10 tent and we had a huge RV pretty much on top of us. Luckily they never came out of the RV, guessing because of the heat. Tent only sites are limited so you’re like going to be right next to or in between 5th wheels and RVs using partial hook ups. The other thing is depending on your spot you might be hard pressed to have an area clear of squirrel holes to put down your ground cover. Our tent was okay but our second shelter and games both had to go over a series of holes. Almost lost some ring toss rings down the holes. Last is the camp ground provided fire wood. We try to buy local wood to avoid invasive insects. In the case of Dos Picos they provide wood bundles for $5 on-site. Cheap and we don’t have to make room in the car, win/win. We’ll the wood is cut in pretty large chunks and riddled with knots. I would recommend a splitter and a small sledge. It took way too long to split our wood with our hatchet and in 93 degree heat, it pretty much sucked. I consider these things pretty minor issues for a weekend get away. We enjoyed the camp ground, thought all the rangers were great and would visit again for a quick trip.
