Small but decent

I grew up camping here. It’s always been a little small and basic, but a good get away if you just want to stay close.

Nice but common.

Little campground just off of the highway. Cool to pitch tent and relax if you don't mind the cars driving by. I spent the first 4o minutes picking up small trash from the ground left from other visitors. Glass and plastic pieces don't make for a clean camp. Other than that I liked that it comes…

Close to the highway, but still very pretty

Just a turn off of Ortega makes the campground very easy to have access to. Unfortunately because of how close it is to the highway there is some car noise that comes along with it.
